4 IPAM Marketplace Dynamics
“IPAM solutions greatly simplify not only the management and accuracy of network records, but they also simplify their provisioning as organizations grow, merge together, and look to deploy these next-generation network applications.” The Burton Group Worldwide IPAM Revenue, Worldwide 2006 IPAM Market Share As more end users and end user equipments are deployed, enterprises will require more efficient IP address management, at the same time, enterprises’ increasing adoption of VPN, mobility, and other IP services will further the need for IP addresses to be effectively managed. In addition, government and regulatory agencies now require auditing of IP address usage. All these combined with the increased deployment of broadband services will cause a sharp increase in IP address demand and management capability. Based on a recent IDC study, IP address management software worldwide revenue is projected to grow to US$170M by And Alcatel-Lucent’s VitalQIP solution has been THE market leader for the past 5 years running. VitalQIP -- #1 in Market Share for 7 Years Running Source: Worldwide Network Configuration Management , IDC

5 IP Network Trends Converging communications and IP
Everything over IP (e.g., VoIP) 3G/Mobile Data Protecting the network More vulnerabilities and threats Expanded role for IP address management Increasing productivity Improve ROI Manage a mission-critical resource Leveraging new business models Managed services and centralized management Micro-sites Emerging IP-based technologies for competitive advantage IPv6 ENUM Clearly there is a major movement to IP networks for convergence of current and future applications such as VOIP, Mobile, High speed network access, etc.  With the increased dependence on the network to provide these services, network management and control become increasingly important.  VitalQIP is invaluable to helping to deploy these initiatives as well as position the network for future growth and applications such as IPv6 and ENUM

6 Key IP Management Challenges
Maintain consistent, accurate IP name and address inventory Provide high availability for clients/subscribers Manage diverse DHCP/DNS infrastructure, including Microsoft Windows 2000/2003 support Support scalable IP management architecture Control operating expenses through automation Provide high performance access for clients/subscribers Control system access through a secure infrastructure Evolve with new technology – VoIP, ENUM, RFID, IPv6, etc. Some of the key IP management challenges facing enterprises today are: The need to maintain consistent, accurate IP name and address inventory while providing high availability and high performance access for clients/subscribers The ability to manage diverse DHCP/DNS infrastructure, including Microsoft Windows 2000/2003 support Deploy a solution that can scale and grow with the business while controlling operating expenses All these need to be done in a secure environment and can be easily evolved to support new technologies, such as VoIP, ENUM, RFID, IPv6, etc. Over the next few slides we’re going to introduce the VitalQIP solution and review two primary IP Address Services: Domain Name Service or DNS, and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol or DHCP.

7 The Importance of Address Management
What is IP Management? Configuring network nodes with IP address, mask, gateway, etc. Monitoring address usage to ensure efficient deployment Configuring DNS servers with each node’s name and IP address Why is It Needed? If hosts can’t get an IP address via DHCP or resolve host names via DNS, they can’t communicate! Manual tracking of IP names and addresses is cumbersome and error- prone even for moderately sized networks Home-grown or freeware solutions lack support Number of IP hosts continuing 3 million/month growth rate The need to effectively utilize IP space in the face of growing demand requires software to automate processes and reduce errors. Just as VoIP and WLAN have come into today's enterprises, RFID, telematics, IPTV, and similar technologies are rapidly emerging. New concepts, such as on-demand computing, are also bringing changes to IT architectures and resources. IP Addressing impacts the use of landline VoIP telephones, PDAs, WiFi laptops, RFID scanners, any mobility data device, as well as cell phones, security sensors and appliances connected to monitor from the Internet, “follow-me” services and other SIP/IMS endpoints. It is the single critical element in the IP network that must be “always-on”. An automated IP management software like VitalQIP's role as a core resource manager can map to these new requirements. Additionally, the need for improved record keeping, whether for regulatory compliance or enhanced automation, appears to be the sure path into the future. With VitalQIP, which is built with a high degree of scalability, IT managers can drive new and complex policies for business-aware service management. IPAM/DNS/DHCP is the single critical element in the IP network that must be "always on." -IDC

11 Flexibility and Scalability
Manage Existing Infrastructure Manage the Migration to New Platforms Cross-Platform Multi-Vendor Support Deploy Appliances Where Needed Most enterprise customers today are running something that supports DNS and DHCP in their environments, but in many cases these solutions are problems and are not being managed in a centralized fashion. One of the most powerful things about VitalQIP is that it doesn’t have to necessarily displace these existing environments. It can compliment it by integrating and managing existing infrastructure and platforms. As you can see from this slide VitalQIP today supports the integrations of multiple appliances, BIND based DNS and Microsoft based systems. The Alcatel-Lucent DNS and The Alactel-Lucent DHCP Services do have advantages over the alternatives, but VitalQIP gives the customer the flexibility to use the systems of choice whether it be in the short term or long term with a mixed environment.

Some examples are QIP’s automated device configuration for the explosion of IP devices in the network; with QIP’s enhanced registration management, client compliance validation, support for various security protocols, customers can ensure the security of their network.

13 The Importance of Name Services (DNS)
Name Services is analogous to telephone directories In order to communicate via the telephone, the caller must know the telephone number of the person they are calling A telephone directory or telephone book provides a lookup between a name and their respective telephone number Imagine trying to navigate the web by using the IP address (

14 The Need for DHCP DHCP enables networks to auto-assign IP addresses and configure client network communications DHCP makes efficient use of IP networks by leasing addresses for specific periods of time allowing the re-use of IP space as needed Enables mobile users to easily change IP networks as they freely move about Enables enterprise to quickly change configurations without the additional cost of modifying each device manually Is standards based and readily available on most hardware/software platforms DHCP Basic Concepts DHCP is a protocol that is built into IP host stacks and specialized servers that automates the distribution of IP addresses and configuration parameters. It is important to keep in mind that the IP Architecture and Protocols were initially designed to have participating workstations manually configured with their IP addresses and parameters. Over time, much of IP has matured and been enhanced. Basic IP address assignment, however, continues to be an administrative intensive process for most organizations. Two protocols, first the Bootstrap (or BootP) protocol and later the DHCP protocol, were developed to centralize the administration of IP addresses and parameters for large numbers of distributed IP hosts. However, it does not really improve the overall manual process of IP address administration. Within this context, you must realize that address and configuration assignment by way of Bootp and DHCP is primitive when compared with other more robust self-registering protocols like IPX and AppleTalk. Therefore, understanding DHCP better can provide insight into the overall IP configuration process and help in problem solving and troubleshooting IP networks.

Recent Wins

18 Understand Your Customers’ Pain Points
Current solution is Implemented as point solutions turn up of services, distribution of IP Addresses is time-consuming and slow The lack of a centralized repository, and integration of services, results in duplication of data between services (e.g. DNS, Host Files) and can delay the ability to address client requests DNS and DHCP services are typically managed “independently” of each other with minimal integration Ensuring data-integrity and validation of IP address data Redundancy of DHCP services is non-existent in some vendor implementations Convergence of Voice and Data networks In most environments, companies are using today to manage, administer and track IP Address and DNS Services. But even these customers that are operating today have pain points that eventually will become overwhelming and risky to grow in to the future. Point Solutions in the long run will never be able to scale and managed in the long term. No centralized repository of addresses and services is costly – duplication, unrecovered addresses and delays all create major impacts. Other pain points include overall data integritiy, scalability and stability of DNS and DHCP and having a holistic view in to this moving forward.

19 Successful Selling – VitalQIP® IP Address Management

20 VitalQIP® IPAM Selling – Positioning Questions
How many IP addresses do you need to manage? Subscribers / clients Network nodes / servers Switches / routers Desktops / laptops Cell phones / PDA’s How do you currently manage? Availability Security Scalability, Growth Speed of configuration Accuracy What are you using today – BIND, Microsoft DNS / DHCP How much does it cost? It is often difficult for companies to identify how many IP addresses are being managed. An administrator will often respond with the appropriate number of registered networks which is a rough indicator of the total number of addresses that can be used. IP addresses are required by a variety of hosts including network gear (such as switches and routers), hosts (such as servers, desktops, laptops, cell phones, and PDAs), and external customers. If there is uncertainty regarding how many systems or services are deployed, it is also unlikely that administrators are aware of the availability and security of all of the services. Administrators of poorly designed networks cannot quickly grow or scale the network to support changes in user populations. A lack of management tools also requires more time to configure network services and accuracy of the information will be questionable.

21 Prepare for Customer Questions
Why should I pay for VitalQIP® when DNS and DHCP are free? VitalQIP is an IP address management system that bundles DNS and DHCP at no extra charge. Moreover, VitalQIP gives you the ability to centrally manage and configure all of the DNS and DHCP servers in your environment from a centralized management platform. Why do I need VitalQIP® when I have W2K or other Microsoft tools? VitalQIP is a complimentary product to W2K and other tools, *NOT* a competitor. VitalQIP offers an impressive amount of integration with W2K and provides the ability to see and manage your IP networks and mission- critical applications. DNS and DHCP are services available either from the operating system vendor or available for download from the Internet. While these services are free, they often require specialized expertise to install and manage. VitalQIP is an IP address management tool that provides DNS and DHCP at no additional charge while allowing the services to be fully integrated. VitalQIP is not a competitor to Microsoft’s Windows 2000 DNS and DHCP services. VitalQIP can be used to centrally manage all DNS and DHCP information and allows the integration of Microsoft’s services with the VitalQIP database. VitalQIP provides a single interface to view all IP networks and mission-critical applications.

Over three years, the average total quantifiable savings the interviewed companies enjoyed from deploying VitalQIP was more than $50K per 100 users. The largest area of benefit was in user productivity (61%), but substantial gains were also made in cost savings and IT staff productivity. VitalQIP accelerates return on investment by: Increasing IT Staff Productivity Provisioning New Services Quickly Minimizing Network Vulnerabilities Increasing End User Productivity Reducing Network Expenses On average, the companies realized an ROI of 930%, which means they recovered their investment in an average of days, after which the savings continued to accumulate. Customers deploying VitalQIP® IP solutions in place of manual IP name and address management typically save from two to four dollars per IP address per year. Here’s a couple of quotes from VitalQIP customers surveyed: "We’re probably saving between 10 and 20 people. And we’ve eliminated a lot of busy work, so people have time for security or IT infrastructure initiatives." "We wanted to look at the redundant DNS servers, so we scanned the network and found that we had about 600 servers, and all we needed was 312. So we shut down almost 300 servers or used them for something else.”
