Southern Illinois University to Get Rid of Spreadsheets and Manage IP Addresses With EfficientIP IPAM Solution
(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WEST CHESTER, PENNSYLVANIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/14 --
EfficientIP, a leading developer of DDI solutions (DNS/DHCP services and IP Address Management), announced today that Southern Illinois University (SIU) has selected their SOLIDserver� DDI solution over the competition to manage its IP addresses and DHCP network services, with plans to migrate DNS services in the future.
Southern Illinois University had been using numerous spreadsheets to manage their IP addresses, but this was not a powerful enough method to effectively manage the large quantity that they have. By using shared spreadsheets, there was limited network visibility, the risk of error was high, and there was no way to share the IP management administrative requirements across multiple teams. With the evolution of BYOD, students and professors are now connecting up to 7 devices each, so managing the steady increase of IP addresses was a challenge for SIU. Initially, when the University started looking for a formal DDI solution, the products they tested had issues successfully managing all of their IP addresses. They found that the response time from the user interfaces were too slow and there was very limited workflow functionality built-in to delegate management to their internal teams.
"We selected EfficientIP's SOLIDserver solution after testing other solutions because it was the only one that delivered the expected performance, even with our large number of IP addresses," said Kade Cole, Network Engineer at Southern Illinois University.
"SIU is looking to deliver best-in-class services to students and faculty. SIU needed accurate and up-to-date IPAM information with the ability to delegate granular control over different teams. With our solution, they will now be able to achieve this objective," said Chris Pyne, VP of Sales at EfficientIP.
"The EIP team was always present and available for us. They did a great demo, and the solution was price effective," added Kade Cole. "We will first deploy the IPAM modules, followed by the DHCP services, and later on the DNS services, to fully benefit from the total integration of all the components," he concluded.
