Broadview Networks Deploys Packet Design’s VPN Explorer to Manage Converged Services Network

IP Routing and MPLS VPN Visibility Increases Network Operations Efficiency, Reduces Mean-Time-to-Repair

SANTA CLARA, Calif., December 20, 2010 – Broadview Networks, a business communications service provider, has deployed VPN Explorer, an IP/MPLS VPN routing analysis solution from Packet Design, Inc. Broadview will use VPN Explorer to manage their IP network, which provides business customers with VoIP, Internet, VPN and MPLS-enabled data communications.

Broadview Networks installed VPN Explorer earlier this year to monitor its large router network, which runs the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and Multi-Protocol BGP (MP-BGP) MPLS VPN routing protocols. VPN Explorer uses a technology known as ‘route analytics’ that lets the company's network engineering staff look at otherwise hidden aspects of routing behavior – undetectable by conventional SNMP-based management tools – and understand its impact on network reliability, redundancy, and customer service delivery.

George Carey, managing director of ISP Operations for Broadview Networks, said the need for more visibility into IP and MPLS VPN routing has increased with the growth of Broadview’s service portfolio and the expansion of the network. “Our IP backbone network has grown to support many diverse services, including more than 50,000 OfficeSuite™ hosted IP phone stations, SIP trunking, Continue reading

Packet Design’s Route Explorer Integrated with Juniper Networks Junosphere Lab

SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 4, 2011 – Packet Design has integrated its Route Explorer route analytics solution with the Juniper Networks® Junosphere™ Lab cloud-based service, giving Juniper customers a way to visualize and analyze complex Layer 3 routed networks created in the Junosphere virtual environment.

Route Explorer provides real-time, network-wide Layer 3 visibility across an enterprise or service provider's IP/MPLS/VPN network, delivering an intuitive graphical view of control plane operation, including IP forwarding paths, RSVP-TE tunnels and Layer 3 VPN services. Integration with Junosphere will allow users to see a real-time topology map of their virtual network, monitor routing changes, perform in-depth analyses, including the ability to rewind network event history, and graphically depict what-if scenarios for failure analysis or to understand the impact of changes before they are deployed. Route Explorer functionality is provided free of charge to Junosphere Lab users.

Judy Beningson, vice president and general manager, Virtual Junos Business Unit at Juniper Networks , said, “We are excited to expand our partnership with Packet Design, and to bring Route Explorer’s powerful network visualization and analysis capabilities to Junosphere Lab users. Route Explorer will give users of our ground-breaking cloud-based service additional flexibility, allowing our customers to Continue reading
