Benefits


24/7 Online Reporting

Helps a customer to monitor its network traffic and gain routing visibility via an interactive Web portal to ensure its network operation at optimum performance.


Simplicity

The cloud-based service is easy to implement and provision with the help of BIGLOBE’s highly experienced technical support team. From day one it doesn’t require any new hardware, or major changes to the network configurations.

DDoS Prevention

Helps detect DDoS threats, send out threat alerts, and provide insights for network admins to understand and mitigate the potential threats and impacts.


Lower TCO

The OPEX-based service model enables customers avoid hefty upfront capital investments by paying for the solution on a per-use fee basis than purchase and implement the solution in its own network.

Responsiveness

Enables effective self-service allowing a customer to receive anomaly alarms, review traffic reports and incident tickets, and access troubleshooting tools via a real-time Web portal.


New Revenues

In addition to monitor and protect an IP Transit customer’s own network infrastructure, the multi-tenancy enabled by the service facilitates potential revenues for the customers from offering value-added services to their own customers.

‘‘BIGLOBE has been a leading provider of internet connectivity services in Japan for a long time. Genie products have helped us greatly over the past years to operate our global network. With the risks of DDoS increasing, we noticed that not all providers had a solution to deal with them. BIGLOBE is now proud to partner with Genie Networks to provide a service that allows providers to protect their network from DDoS attacks and to plan their network growth providing deep insight into traffic data. Small and mid sized providers will benefit greatly from this cloud based solution. We hope to work more closely together with Genie Networks and provide services that will truly satisfy our customer needs.’’
