  • Managing a complex, heterogeneous network normally requires the integration of many independent network management products into a single, cohesive management platform. For most network administrators, access to such a tool is as rare as unicorns. Entuity strives to eliminate confusion and reduce network management stress with version 15.5 of the company's fully federated network management platform. This product also integrates with version 2.5 of their SurePath application, which is used for end-to-end application performance monitoring. The company has integrated novel technologies into the Entuity management platform, such as machine learning and heuristics to build interactive reports that provide insight to network operations, as well as help administrators determine performance baselines. What's more, SurePath brings that same level of intelligence to application monitoring, giving administrators full insight into the performance of applications and virtual machines as well as providing a complete picture of end-to-end network activity. The product supports a physical appliance installation as well as a virtual appliance deployment, giving network managers the freedom to deploy the product on premises, in the cloud or remotely.

  • Google's efforts in the smart home business, headlined by the company's Nest smart thermostat, just expanded with the announcement of its OnHub wireless router. The WiFi router comes with a host of "smart" features, including the ability to prioritize certain types of traffic or devices connected to it. Google also contends that OnHub is simpler to use than other wireless routers and is a suitable option for consumers and even small businesses. Still, the OnHub will find itself in a crowded market, filled with devices like Apple's Time Capsule and products from Linksys, Asus, Belkin and others. Google believes that its device strikes the proper balance between speed and usability and has a shot at becoming a major player in a part of the technology industry—networking—that fails to get the attention it deserves. This slide show will take a look at the OnHub router to see if it deserves the attention of consumers and small-business operators. Read on to learn more about Google's new smart wireless router.
