Total Network Management
Network/T delivers a powerful centralized management
solution for distributed networks that are delivering
today’s eBusiness solutions. Through policy-based
management, Network/T aligns service levels with
business objectives to provide ongoing availability,
optimal performance, and management of networks
in a business context.
eBusiness Is The Network
With the increasing trend for eBusiness, the networks play more
of a vital role in today’s business arena. The transformation of
business to the electronic and digital age has brought performance
and user experience to the forefront. Network management can
make the difference between an eBusiness initiative being a suc-
cess or failure. Effective network management requires a solution
that treats your network as an integral part of your business.
Network Management In A
If yours is like most businesses, heterogeneous networks are a fact
of life in your IT environment. Legacy systems present an additio-
nal dilemma: how to manage different network infrastructures as
separate entities? Invariably, management tasks are frequently
duplicated for each network protocol and often introduce problems
across network boundaries such as SNA and TCP/IP. This resource-

Intuitively manage your entire network through the Network/T topology map.
intensive approach is costly, and can result in additional delays and
network downtime. Network/7 efficiently and effectively manages
all networked environments centrally from the enterprise level.
This protocol-independent, highly scalable solution monitors and
manages network traffic while providing an integrated picture of
Taking Network Management Further
Network/7 monitors network performance from the end-user and
system perspectives. This enables administrators to proactively
manage the environment by providing an accurate picture of the
network’s performance. eBusiness is taking the challenges in net-
work management to greater heights, demanding more scalable,
reliable, and comprehensive solutions than ever before.
Network/7 takes network management to a new level. It
delivers a complete solution that optimizes network performance
and availability, and increases service to your business. Network/T
enables you to:
e Manage networks in an eBusiness context by aligning net-
work management with your business objectives and ensuring
that the priorities used for managing the network are the same
as those used for managing your business.
Assure service levels by managing both the availability and
performance of the network infrastructure.
Manage today’s network infrastructure in one seamless
management solution that delivers more network management
“out-of-the-box” than any other product.
Improve IT efficiency by allowing administrators to centrally
manage global heterogeneous networks across all networking
protocols for a unified network management scheme.
Supports All Major Network Protocols. Network/7 supports
all industry-standard protocols, including TCP/IP, IPX, SNA, and
DECnet, delivering a comprehensive network management
solution for heterogeneous enterprises.
EnterpriseDiscovery™ And Classification. Network/7
automatically discovers and classifies all networked devices
and assets, then builds an intuitive topology map based on
the results of this auto-discovery and classification.
Software superior by design.
Using neural network technology, the network Performance
Neugents™ manage and predict problems in advance, which helps
prevent router outages, maximizes network performance, improves
staff efficiency, and ultimately helps you attain your eBusiness goals.
e Performance Management. Providing rea/ service management
requires more than availability monitoring. Network/T’s extensive
performance management capabilities optimize ongoing network
availability, providing a full picture of your network service levels.
Application Performance. Network/7 monitors network-centric
performance thresholds such as bandwidth utilization and node
response times. Application-related performance information is
also monitored. For example, Network/T tracks the end-to-end
response times for a user accessing an application, the delays
on each of the network components between the user and the
application, a breakdown of the flow of application traffic,
Programmable Automated Responses. Network/T's sophisti-
cated event management functionality enables any number of
automated actions to be defined for various events. This allows
you to reduce management overhead by creating very sophisti-
cated responses to problems that occur in the network. For
example, if several alerts were generated indicating a particular
router was performing poorly, Network/T could alleviate the
problem by automatically reinitializing the router.
ATM, Frame Relay And VLAN Management. Network/T’s
Frame Relay Support discovers and monitors each Frame Relay
virtual circuit. It displays the circuit’s relationship with other
network devices. If a circuit fails, Network/T highlights the
affected components or business services and alerts the
Root Cause Analysis. Network/Ts advanced root cause analysis
employs an event correlation system to determine the root
cause/starting point of a network problem. This highlights the
cause of problems and eliminates confusing event storms from
unreadable devices and networks.
VLAN support includes discovery of switches and their man-
agement, in addition, it also provides flexible user access security
control by dynamically configuring the network infrastructure to the
appropriate VLAN as a user logs on.
Scalable. Network/T’s distributed manager/agent architecture
delivers a highly scalable solution. From the smallest organization
with a simple LAN to large global heterogeneous environments,
Network/7 efficiently manages even the most distant resources.
OpenView And NetView Migration Tools. Network/7’s migration
tools allow you to maximize your previous investments while
easily capitalizing on Network/T’s superior functionality.
Enterprise Management Infrastructure" Network/T is built on
CA's Unicenter TNG® Framework” today’s most sought-after
Total Enterprise Management™ infrastructure. Network/7 leverages
the Framework’s powerful reporting, centralized alert and event
management technology, and EnterpriseDiscoveryto deliver
unparalleled network management for your enterprise. Network/T
capitalizes on the Framework’s Business Process Views and 2-D
and 3-D Real World Interface™ to visualize and manage the entire
network in the context of the eBusiness.
