Version 3.7.0: Enhanced security model and reducing friction for automation workflows
To grasp any technology in a standard manner, first the right command set has to be found. The command set provides initial ingredients in raw form, which have to be processed. The processing extracts and structures the variables in a unified network model. This is…
How to tackle IT asset management software limitations in networking
Operating and automating computer networks can become easy once we have all information we need. Then the asset management software plays a critical part in any action. It’s the tool that should be collecting data about all network devices automatically and with precision.
Discover WLAN Access points and connected users with IP Fabric
Wireless LAN (Local Area Network) or WLAN access points are inevitably a stable part of enterprise networks. The number of connected devices has been growing exponentially during the past years. And the forecast says that more than 20 billion devices will be connected in 2021….
PRTG Integration with IP Fabric’s API
PRTG integration with IP Fabric’s API is another beautiful example of functional synthesis. Network monitoring tools are and have always been the key part of network management. For some, it may be just testing availability with ICMP or collect interface and CPU stats with SNMP….
