What is most valuable?

WAN Acceleration

How has it helped my organization?

Unlike other firewall and internet accelerator network device, it has its own IPS/IDS built in. Well improved performance.

What needs improvement?

Acceleration and ACL (Access control list), IPS/IDS.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

In terms of ROI and features aside from other expensive IDS and IPS hardware, this product I recommend. Stability will mature at least 3 months based on the policies and security from company requirements and needs.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We tried KPN for 1 year, but ROI is not practical. Huge differences with IPANEMA. IPANEMA is much more ahead in terms of acceleration and scalability through WAN.

What is most valuable?

Application visibility is without doubt the strongest point of this product and the most valuable to me as a user. I can see what volume of data is flowing per application, per source, per destination etc. I can see where the traffic is going to, where it's coming from, I can see packet loss percentages, delay, jitter, loss values, AQS (Application Quality Score) which is calculated from values that the customer themselves specify on the centralised management platform.

What needs improvement?

Tough one... I suppose being able to set performance targets or QoS Profiles individually per location would be nice. At the moment, the solution is geared towards the global enterprise environment and thus Global settings. That being said, this global management ads a great ease to any deployment and is actually one of the product's strong points.

How has it helped my organization?

Making use of two connections per site we were able to minimize expensive MPLS connections and replace them with cheap internet lines with IPsec tunnels. Business critical applications are going over MPLS, less critical via IPsec ensuring… more»

What is Ipanema IpIengine?

The Ipanema Autonomic Networking System (ANS) uses both software and hardware components. The fully featured hardware components are called ip|engines. These devices are installed within the customer VPN at edge locations, typically between a CPE router and the LAN. Requiring no specific local configuration except an IP address, an ip|engine is a self-managed and cooperative device that operates under the control of the ANS central management software, called SALSA. Each ip|engine acts as a local point of control within ANS. ip|engines work collectively in real-time to discover the applications and measure the network's performance and usage ip|engine. As part of ANS, the ip|engines cooperate and tune themselves automatically to the dynamic nature of the application traffic, globally enforcing the Application SLAs. They take into account meshed flows, different types of congestion, application competition for resources and so on. The ip|engines adapt to longer term changes within the business, such as a change in the distribution of users across sites, a newly deployed application or a new site, as well as the evolution of infrastructure and services into the cloud.
