AixBOMS Networking: Software for the inventory and provisioning of IP addresses and networks
Calculation and representation of subnets and addresses for IPv4 and IPv6AixBOMS Networking combines the functions and representations of modern IP address management (IPAM) in IPv4 and IPv6 environments. In addition to IP-based network logic, other network objects such as VLANs, logical access, organizational structures and additional addressing are provided. Objects created by the networking application can be assigned to components, ports, logical or virtual connection points.
IPv6 structures need different representationsBecause IPv6 structures (networks and addresses) are significantly more complex than IPv4 structures, there is a new editor for the optimized display of the IPv6 world in addition to the conventional tree and topology views: the IPv6 Matrix Editor. It shows the current structures, allows you to change the hierarchy levels with a click of the mouse and calls up administrative operations via its context menu.
Allocation methods for dual-stack operationIf you are already planning the introduction of IPv6, you can also tackle it step by step using AixBOMS via dual IPv4 / IPv6 operation. Two methods for the automatic and automated assignment of addresses are available to you.
Integration of master and CMDB data in address allocation and network organizationLike all AixBOMS applications, networking is based on the common CMDB. This makes it easy to establish relationships with data from other management areas that are useful for planning, billing and troubleshooting. The new enhancements offer network and host name objects that can be included in this service and relationship model as well as infrastructure and service objects.
Reservation pools, host name generator, DHCP / DNS supportEspecially for IPv6, new subnetting assistants and human-friendly notations of the 128bit addresses have been introduced, which considerably simplify the handling of the huge address spaces. A host name generator uses individual name sequences (prefix, suffix, counter) that can be specified by the customer to create company-specific host names. In addition, the AixBOMS set of rules for working with IPv6 has been expanded, thereby avoiding network management errors.
Logical objects (VLAN, network organization, access groups etc.)Reservation pools can also be used to logically divide IPv6 networks or to reserve individual network areas for DHCP, customers, projects, etc. An outstanding feature of the networking application is the management of logical structures, such as VLANs (Virtual Local Area Network) and access groups. This is reflected in the organizational concept for IPv6 networks: the network structure can be defined according to any criteria. Organizational, geographical, technical conditions or a combination of these are possible.
