Solana Networks has released FalconView, a route analytics appliance that monitors and diagnoses routed IP networks.

“Businesses are critically dependent on their networks, which are becoming more complex and challenging to manage,” the Ottawa company said in a release. “Network problems are not only costly to businesses, but prevent the implementation of these new converged services.

“Many estimates put the cost of downtime to be anywhere between 2% and 16% of revenues. That means that businesses are losing billions of dollars peryear through poor network availability. Add to that the failure to meet Service Level Agreements and the cost is staggering.”

Solana adds that the tools required to diagnose problems with networks and combat downtime have not kept pace with the growth in dependency and complexity of networks.

“Many SMBs cannot afford the full suite of network management offerings from larger NMS suppliers and therefore are at a further disadvantage in keeping networks running, controlling costs or offering new services,” it says.

FalconView provides Layer 3 visibility and the ability to monitor and troubleshoot the network.

It utilizes proprietary technology to analyze the network and difficult to diagnose problems such as link flapping, interface flapping. Routing anomalies are displayed in real-time.

Advanced troubleshooting and root cause analysis can spot problems before they occur thereby reducing downtime and operating costs.
