It took only a few days to get up and running, and we’re already seeing a 90% reduction in the time and resources it takes us to allocate and manage IP resources.

6connect, Inc., a world leader in software-defined network control, today announced that Northern-California based mobile enterprise network access solutions provider, Aruba Networks will utilize ProVision Software Suite. Aruba Networks joins a growing list of leading service providers and enterprises around the world using 6connect’s Dynamic Provisioning Control Platform to improve the efficiency of IP resources management.

Provisioning and configuring networks are normally manually intensive processes focused on individual, vendor-specific, network elements rather than the holistic provisioning of data centers across distributed networks and virtual environments. These manual configurations cannot keep up with rapidly changing devices and networks, creating outage risks for network and data center that forfeit revenue, customer trust, and delay the introduction of new services.

Moreover, manual network provisioning limits the ability to holistically enforce compliance, concurrently update network policies and protocols, or manage or rollback network configurations because they are often done in isolation rather than across systems and only address vendor specific hardware or software elements rather than entire networks. As a result, networks cannot be provisioned and controlled at the pace required by our virtual and mobile business operations. After experiencing such challenges, Aruba Networks chose the ProVision solution to automate their IP provisioning. Utilizing 6connect’s platform has yielded dramatic time and cost efficiencies over Aruba’s previous spreadsheet-dependent and costly CLIO-based provisioning.

“It took only a few days to get up and running, and we’re already seeing a 90% reduction in the time and resources it takes us to allocate and manage IP resources," said Allan Hannan, development operations manager at Aruba Networks. “It’s a powerful, yet incredible intuitive solution.”

6connect’s solution provides Aruba Networks with a single platform that systematically assigns Static IP addresses per servers, handles auto subnetting of IPv4/IPv46, allows for multi-service management of IP4v4, IPv6, DNS configurations, and delivers service oriented IPAM that prioritizes resource configurations by service and manages asset tracking of virtual assets.

“We’re thrilled to add a company of the caliber of Aruba Networks to our growing list of happy customers,” said Bill Bien, 6connect’s chief executive officer. “ProVision eliminates the cost and limitations of hardware-based IPAM by using software and the Cloud to provision and manage any device on the network.”
