KanREN To Manage State Educational Network with Entuity


4/19/2007—KanREN, a consortium of Kansas colleges, universities, school districts, and other non-profit organizations that operates a statewide backbone network, will use New York/London-headquartered Entuity Inc.'s Eye of the Storm to manage its network.

Responsible for building, expanding, and maintaining the Kansas network, which supports educational network, research collaboration, and delivery of instructional content for 73 wide-area network sites, KanREN needed a network management, monitoring and reporting system to handle current and future service-delivery challenges.

Serving the state since 1994, KanREN had specific requirements for management tools: They had to deliver valid metrics that accurately measure benefits versus costs of the solution prior to and after implementation. And they needed enough onboard intelligence to manage the next-generation research technologies being deployed on KanREN’s network to create on demand, dynamically-reconfigurable, dedicated research network resources that extend across the state, country, and globe.

“Through its comprehensive data collection, correlation and analysis, alerting, and reporting, EYE gives KanREN the intelligence we need to both efficiently and proactively identify situations before they become problems as well as resolve those that arrive unexpectedly,” said KanREN network engineer David Yarnevich, in a prepared statement.
