Oct 27, 2010

Solana Networks, a leading provider of Route Analytics and LAN discovery products, today announced that it has entered into an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Lumeta, a provider of network discovery and visibility solutions. Lumeta® will integrate technologies from Solana Network’s SmartHawk product into the Lumeta IPsonar® product suite.

Solana Network’s unique network discovery and diagnostics technologies have been leveraged for many vital uses including advanced network monitoring, VoIP roll-outs, planning and most recently cybersecurity applications.   Solana’s Layer 2 discovery engine, designed to scale to the largest global IT networks, provides in-depth visibility into complex heterogeneous LAN environments, enabling network operators to visualize and analyze their switched topology with one of the industry’s most accurate and efficient discovery methods. Solana’s Route Analytics technology offers similar functionality to address the notoriously dynamic IP cloud by passively analyzing the Layer 3 routing protocols thereby gaining real-time insight into the behaviour of complex converged networks.

Michael Markulec, Lumeta’s Chief Operating Officer, said “Lumeta’s large enterprise and government customers rely on us for the most accurate, advanced and up-to-date situational awareness of the network in support of large-scale cybersecurity operations. Lumeta has partnered with Solana Networks because the SmartHawk product offers truly innovative network monitoring and discovery technologies, including patented Route Analytics technology. The core technology addresses the element of change, which complicates cybersecurity efforts, and is so critical to protecting high-value networks against constantly changing, evolving threats.”

“We are delighted that Lumeta, a recognized visionary in network discovery and visibility, has selected Solana as an OEM partner and we believe that our technology will help Lumeta to further advance their position in the market.” said Nisan Rowhani, VP Product Management of Solana Networks. “This partnership with Lumeta, who has a notable list of prestigious clients, further validates the significance of Solana Network’s technologies and will help open new doors for the company.”
