The integrity of your IT-registered data is of significant value to your company. EfficientIP supplies you with solutions to automatically document IP address attributes.
IPLocator™ is a network discovery tool that offers industry-leading network reconciliation capabilities. IPLocator™ provides comprehensive visibility into IP address connections on the network by bringing a real capacity to identify, monitor and locate IP address locations on network devices. Therefore you can uncover inconsistencies on an ongoing basis and always have an up to date IP plan in tune with current and future operations.
Dynamic Devices Self‐Documenting
For each IP and MAC address that is discovered, IPLocator™ will identify the following key information: switch name, switch slot, switch port, switch description, switch OS version, VLAN number, switch status, port speed, link status, first seen and last seen.
History of IP/MAC Addresses Mobility
IPLocator™ identifies and archives any changes in IP or MAC address location on the network. It brings a global view of the company’s stations’ mobility by address offset -switch, slot, port and VLAN offset of an IP and/or a MAC address. The displayed, archived information shows when, where and who was connected and remains connected so that IP and MAC mobility can be tracked easily.
IPLocator™ enables you to compare the theoretical IP address locations defined in the SOLIDserver™ IPAM repository with the discovered information. In one glance, it is easy to identify incoherencies and receive alerts by email. Advanced reports supply an easy, comprehensive and summarized view.
Reclaim Unused IP and MAC Addresses
EfficientIP’s discovery process can identify IP and MAC addresses which have remained unused during a given lapse of time. Based on this information, it is easy to determine whether IP addresses can be released or reallocated.
Control IP Port Occupancy Rate
EfficientIP’s discovery process can identify any switch ports which have remained unused during a given lapse of time. Based on this information, it is easy to determine whether a switch port can be released or reallocated. This is particularly important in the context of datacenters in order to avoid any overconsumption of Giga Ethernet ports to unused servers.
Discover Unauthorized Devices and Remove Infected Devices
Discoveries made by IPLocator™ can launch alerts when an unknown device is detected on the network. Thanks to discovery results it becomes easy to locate and remove an infected station in order to provide an optimum reaction to security alerts.
Reports and Statistics
EfficientIP’s solutions supply a variety of reports on network discoveries, enabling you to have a pro-active analysis of your network activity and trends. Reports are a powerful tool in order to control capacity planning and get a real understanding of how network resources are used. The IPLocator™ reports are also important information to help deal with or anticipate problems.
