Lavelle Networks has unveiled its CloudStation App — claimed to be a first-ever SD-WAN Mobile App for Network Monitoring, which is an extension of its Software Defined Network Orchestrator.
While talking about the idea behind the CloudStation App launch and the motivation behind bringing it to the market, Nitish Abrol, Director Products, Lavelle Networks, said, “We work closely with our customers and are aware of the challenges faced by their IT teams during critical times. They had to be in NoC center, 24 X 7 to monitor the network. And they mostly come to know about problems only after a user reports an issue. This provided us with an idea to use technology and get network status proactively on mobile. With the CloudStation App, network engineers can now observe network patterns on their handsets and act proactively, to avoid downtime.”
He further said, “Now IT teams do not need to be in the Network to troubleshoot their Network. This is a great step in empowering them and making them more efficient and proactive in monitoring and resolving network issues, instead of reacting to them. CloudStation App, now helps our customers keep their network, literally in their pocket, where they can easily monitor and troubleshoot enterprise networks proactively, from Anywhere, Anytime.”
Lavelle Networks believes that the launch of its CloudStation App will reduce network downtime, enable fast monitoring, and ensure an always-on Network. This is in lines with its ScaleAOn architecture, on which the SD-WAN solution is built. CloudStation App will cater to the AOn of ScaleAOn and reach the end user.
Abrol had said that ScaleAOn, which stands for Networking at Scale- Always On, can achieve network segmentation using an intent-driven user interface, and fast REST API-based transactions. He said it is capable of hiding all the network protocol complexity from the user, allowing an unprecedented speed of control operations. IT administrators can connect, disconnect users, locations, applications within seconds and it provides a huge scale with dramatic simplicity for Hybrid and enterprise WAN use cases.
“We knew that from an engineering view, the right technology to use, to track thousands of WAN events, is the same technology we use to track thousands of social media updates every day in our lives. So we went ahead and built our inaugural SD-WAN mobile application, so that our customers can monitor their networks the 21st century way, with the swipe of their thumb on their phone touchscreen,” said Harish Kumtakar, Director Engineering, Lavelle Networks.
