Network managers gain new tools from Ipanema Technologies this month. The tools are aimed at helping to guarantee performance of applications and cloud-based software. The networking developer’s ip|engine40 is now available in two forms, ip|engine40so and ip|engine40ax, providing visibility and control across 100 Mbps branch networks.
“With these new devices, branch offices of various sizes can manage the growing performance demands of today’s applications across a variety of network technologies,” states Ipanema in a press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB.
The ip|engine40 is designed to manage the networks of small to mid-sized branch offices. The ip|engine40so is meant for networks up to 100 users, and the ip|engine40ax for networks up to 300 users.
“The new ip|engine40 [forms] ensure that complex and large networks with offices of all size can guarantee application performance,” states the Ipanema release.
In addition to Ipanema’s usual features, the new ip|engine40 offers:
- Application Visibility & Control — Branch office networks up to 100 Mbps with support of any IP network, using variety of access technology types, including Ethernet, Internet, MPLS, and LTE.
- Redundant Network Management — Dual LAN/WAN hardware capabilities enable management via a single device, resulting in a simpler installation.
- Dynamic WAN Selection — To maximize the value of multiple network combinations (such as dual MPLS access, dual service providers, or MPLS + Internet), managers can unify application performance to ensure optimum usage of each available path.
- WAN Optimization Capabilities — Available for network links up to 20Mbps.
“Around 10 percent of our customers have already deployed 100 Mbps networks,” says Béatrice Piquer-Durand, Ipanema’s vice president of marketing.
In 3 years’ time, we expect this number to approach 50 percent. The ability to monitor, prioritize, and control applications remains critical to ensuring business productivity.”
