Solutions Enterprise IT:

FNT Enterprise Connectivity Management (Internal Network)

Managing network connectivity services both inside plant and throughout the campus – crucial for your digitization strategy.

Whether it is a B2C application that needs to connect to a banking system, the interconnected drive interface of a car or the autonomous transportation unit on a factory floor: Every digital service use case hinges on data connectivity. Complete control over all elements and assets in your network and the employed technologies is crucial for success.

FNT Enterprise Connectivity Management

FNT Enterprise Connectivity Management (Internal Network) has at its core a central repository that provides a complete inventory of all active and passive network resource data, including end-to-end connections. This network related data is an important component of the organization’s IT documentation. The solution provides the accurate as-is documentation needed to facilitate both new cable infrastructure rollouts and extensions of existing networks. A comprehensive planning functionality greatly simplifies moving, adding, and changing network assets and CIs. Powerful auto-routing functionality identifies the best, media-independent signal routes. Blueprinting and templating mechanisms with integrated parameter management enforce standardization, speed up provisioning and help to avoid misconfigurations.

Powerful graphical visualizations facilitate ongoing operations of the network. Inside and outside overviews, either schematic or augmented by an integrated GIS capability for full geo-referencing, make it easy to navigate through network topologies. Signal tracing features help to find faults and determine optimization potential.

The solution organizes and manages connectivity services in a product catalogue. This enables enterprises to holistically design, offer, roll out and operate advanced network connectivity as a business service, complete with transparent SLA/OLA descriptions, service quality parameters and pricing.

The capacities required for data transfer in the digital age are skyrocketing: IoT, workload transfer into the cloud and the rise of Industry 4.0 are the major drivers. To accommodate the growing load, enterprises need the ability to flexibly adapt their network technology to ensure they can continue to meet bandwidth and latency requirements.

Doing so necessitates enterprises invest in their networks. They need to modernize both passive and active network components inside office buildings, on factory floors and across campuses. This is an ongoing process that will only work if documentation is up-to-date, comprehensive planning capabilities are available and flawless operations management is supported.

Use Cases

Major Benefits

Increased Customer Satisfaction

Deliver exceptional connectivity and network infrastructure services

Design and operate network services holistically from the physical active and passive network components level up to virtualized network connections. Provision new connections and whole network segment rollouts faster and increase performance, availability, and reliability to meet customer expectations and fulfil SLAs. Promote positive perception of IT and improve overall internal customer satisfaction.

Optimized Network Resource Landscape and Cost Savings

Minimize cost of procuring and operating complex network infrastructure environments

Optimize complex network infrastructure landscapes by enforcing standardization on the component level while still offering flexible service choices to users. Increase purchase volume per manufacturer and strengthen your negotiation position. Detect and utilize hidden reserves in port capacity, cable duct capacity and realize cost savings by optimizing routings.

Increased Standardization

Achieve standardized policy enforcement

Decrease operational delivery efforts and increase speed with streamlined and coordinated delivery, operations and maintenance processes over the whole network component service lifecycle. Reduce unnecessary hardware and configuration diversity by defining and working with standard templates. This will reduce planning and execution errors, minimize overhead and eliminate undefined process and system states.

Enhance Strategic Planning

See issues and fix them before they become a problem.

Detect network CIs devices that need to be replaced and take action before they become obsolete. Identify network component types that are prone to failures and are more difficult to maintain to inform future device selection and configuration for overall availability and reliability improvements. Plan ahead for major overhauls and extensions to optimize project cost and duration and reduce risks in project execution.

The Holistic Network Management Solution

Companies are faced with increasing data volumes rapidly growing networking. As a result, the digital infrastructure is becoming increasingly complex. Not only is the complexity of the network infrastructure is growing, but so are the demands placed on it. Ensuring fault-free functioning is more important than ever. Failures of individual devices or services can quickly cause serious problems and high costs. For this reason, keeping track of the complex IT, network and device infrastructure is key. In this white paper, you will learn from two real-life examples how companies can achieve holistic network management through the combined use of the FNT Command Platform and Stable-Net.
