TORONTO, CANADA – October 28, 2015  – BlueCat, a leading provider of DNS, DHCP and IP address management solutions (DDI), today introduced Network Visualization, a new capability giving enterprises unprecedented insight into their global networks. Network Visualization is available as part of BlueCat’s latest release of its DDI solution platform.

Leveraging a complete set of DNS, DHCP and IP address data, Network Visualization allows enterprises to instantly detect anomalies in the network, such as unusually high or low IP address allocation for key networks, view patterns in DHCP lease activity, and quickly identify potential network configuration issues. Customers can rapidly adjust the network to avoid the risk of unplanned network outages, ensure network resource availability and meet the SLAs of their business.

Network Visualization templates available today include:

  • DHCP Heat Map The DHCP Heat Map provides a visual representation of the distribution of DHCP leases and device types on a daily basis. In addition, historical distribution of DHCP leases can be viewed over multiple years, in a calendar view.
  • IP Allocation Overlay The IP Allocation Overlay uses a tree map to display the global network with IP address allocation information overlaid, enabling customers to identify which blocks or networks are being over- or under-utilized . Information such as the size of the network or block, the percentage of IP address allocation and number of IP addresses used in a particular block or network is clearly presented for further analysis and investigation.
  • DNS Deployment Role Overlay The DNS Deployment Role Overlay uses a tree map to display network structure by configuration, blocks and networks. Identify which blocks or networks are associated with which DNS deployment roles and the variations between parameters within DNS deployment roles that are assigned in relation to other blocks and networks.

“In order for IT organizations to respond to the needs of their business, they need to have both a complete set of data as well as the ability to view it in a meaningful way,” Christina Perdikoulias, Vice President, Product Management, BlueCat. “Network Visualization gives our customers unique insights through visualizations versus canned or ad hoc reports. This provides a truly global and dynamic view of the network enabling them to address potential issues before they happen.”

Network Visualization is now available as part of the 8.0 release of BlueCat Address Manager and BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server.
