Default Differences

Hi, Chiris,the difference between NetBrain Workstation and other network management tools is that
most existing network management tools focus on the network and not users' engineering workflow. They have not solved the challenges that network professionals face today: it is hard to discover and document an enterprise network; the user must be familiar with the network before troubleshooting a problem; and they do not have a good format or medium to share the network knowledge or to collaborate on design and troubleshooting.

NetBrain workstation is designed to be the first portable automation tool for everyday tasks: It is capable of deep-level network discovery and provides on-demand delivery of discovered knowledge to users based on the task at hand. It provides automation for many manual tasks for detailed network troubleshooting and network design and allows the automation to be customizable by average users. Furthermore, it promotes a mechanism for network professionals to share knowledge and collaborate.

We designed NetBrain to double the brain power of network engineers - for troubleshooting, discovery and design. I mean we don't just focus on the network alone.

We are
* The 1st map-based automation and simulation tool
* The fastest and deepest network discovery and documentation tool
* The learning and collaboration tool

We are NOT
* a 24 X 7 monitoring tool, so you would need Openview or Tivoli
* a Security tool to limit who can do what, although NetBrain can be used for network auditing

Because we put a wide range of network management and engineering features into one map-based workstation, you will easily find some features overlap with a range of network softwares, such as Opnet, Packet designer, Opsware, Ciscoworks RME and Tivoli. This doesn't mean we compete with them and you have to pick one over the other. NetBrain integrates with those solutions to extend their capability and can protect the investment. e.g we integrate with NetCool, to convert the textual alarms to data-driven map in real-time. Customers love it.

In the end, I wish to tell you, as the founder, the difference is very obvious once you have had your hand on NetBrain. Do you remember the time-sharing computer such as Honeywell? Do you know the Sun workstation? In the background, NetBrain and existing network management solution are as different as that.
