Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) November 04, 2014
Incognito Software Systems, a global provider of broadband device provisioning, IP address management, bandwidth monitoring, and service activation solutions, today announced the latest version of Address Commander, an IP address management (IPAM) software that has been catering to the unique needs of service providers since 2006.
Managing networks with potentially millions of subscribers and connected devices, service provider IP administrators face unique challenges compared to their enterprise counterparts, including multi-vendor DHCP architecture, cross-department IPAM software users, business customer assignments, hundreds of network types, and more. These complex service delivery environments require a solution that gives them a comprehensive view of the network, meets Regional Internet Registry requirements, supports multiple types of users, and streamlines the IP request and assignment process.
Designed specifically with communication service providers in mind and based on direct feedback from large operators around the globe, Address Commander helps providers manage tens of thousands to millions of public IP addresses for business customers and subscribers alike.
Features and benefits of the latest version of Address Commander from Incognito Software Systems include:
- Streamlined IP Assignment: To help service providers save on manual labour and eliminate assignment errors, Address Commander automates the entire IP request process. Once blocks of IPs have been allocated for specific purposes, Address Commander automatically assigns addresses from the appropriate free pool to fulfill IP requests. IP request forms can be customized to show only the available options for each network type, further minimizing errors in the request and assignment process.
- Intelligent Network-wide Device Discovery and Problematic Assignment Management: Through device discovery scans, Address Commander obtains and displays the real-world deployment details of a service provider’s network. The lightweight scans examine millions of IP addresses within hours without impacting other IPAM operations. After a scan, potential IP conflicts and inconsistencies are summarized in reports and to-do lists to help the IP administration or operations teams quickly resolve any identified issues. The to-do list automatically updates at the next scan and resolved issues are removed from the list.
“IP Address Management for service providers is no longer about finding an available IP and marking it as used in a spreadsheet. Due to the scarcity of IPv4 addresses, the popularity of IP-based services, and the increased complexity of provider networks, IP planners and administrators are now focused on optimizing their resources and streamlining their processes,” said Stephane Bourque, president and CEO of Incognito Software Systems. “Address Commander provides a comprehensive network view at both a macro and device-specific level to help service providers identify and resolve IP-related issues quickly and easily so they can focus on delivering more services to their subscribers.”
This news comes on the heels of the company’s recent acquisition by Volaris Group, an operating group of Toronto-based software and services provider Constellation Software Inc. The financial resources gained from this relationship allow Incognito Software Systems to distribute its latest version of Address Commander to even more customers on both a local and global scale.
