NetBrain Problem Diagnosis Automation System (PDAs)
Intent-Based Automation for Network Operations
NetBrain® Problem Diagnosis Automation System (PDAs) is the industry’s only intent-based hybrid network automation and visibility platform focused on automating network problem diagnosis at scale. NetBrain PDAs automates the most common and repetitive diagnostics tasks for all types of problems to reduce ticket duration and MTTR.
Use Case Scenarios
IT Service Management (ITSM) Automation
Automatically trigger network problem diagnosis upon ticket creation. A library of pre-built automations and infrastructure knowledge starts workflow automation, creating diagnostics and mapping for the operator. Using automation to address recurring types of problems reduces repetitive tasks to improve operational efficiency.
Significantly Reduce MTTR
Initiate automatic investigatory steps when a ticket is raised, reducing diagnostics time and accelerating recovery time.
Maintain Network Compliance
Prevent up to 50% of abnormal network conditions that would otherwise lead to the creation of even more service tickets.
Network Troubleshooting Automation
Diagnose Problems Faster
Automatically map the problem area, executes tasks, and records the diagnosis before your technicians get involved.
Make More Informed Decisions
NetBrain PDAs allows teams to work together in real-time, eliminating time-consuming hand-offs and escalations.
Key Product Features
NetBrain PDAs at a glance.
The intelligent auto-discovery engine inside gathers information using the command line interface, and then provides real-time, visualisation of your network.
Dynamic Network Mapping
Networks constantly change but most of the time your documentation remains stale. NetBrain’s dynamic maps will always stay up-to-date as your network changes.
Automated runbooks will perform a first level diagnosis, collect/analyse data then place it on a dynamic map for you to see in order to resolve the issue.
Rich API Framework
NetBrain PDAs isn’t replacing your existing toolsets. We bring 3rd-party data into the dynamic maps to assist in visualising and diagnosing events as they happen.
SDN & Traditional Networks
Get centralised, end-to-end views of your overall infrastructure by mapping physical and logical connections within SDN and legacy/traditional networks.
NetBrain’s thin client user interface is supported by a highly scalable server architecture. NetBrain scales to manage tens of thousands of network devices.
