Intelligent real-time network monitoring
Celerway Software models network state by monitoring the real throughput of all available network connections and filtering out temporarily fluctuating links. The network throughput model is used to make decisions about where and how traffic should flow for maximum stability and the best possible performance. Information from the model is also used to generate graphical representations of historical network events like failures and poor link quality.
In the event of performance problems or a failing network Celerway software automatically redirects traffic to Internet connections with better performance. An added complication in failover scenarios is that businesses often rely on Virtual Private Networks (VPN) for secure communication with remote locations, payment systems, or critical infrastructure. When the main networking route to the internet fails or performs poorly these connections also go down. Re-establishing VPN connections with minimum impact to end users is an integral part of the failover handling in Celerway software.
Video conferencing, large file transfers, video streaming, and remote desktop sessions all consume large amounts of bandwidth. If many users on a network utilize large amounts of data, the sum of their usage will eventually exceed the capacity of a single broadband link. The result is “stuttering” video and slow remote desktop connections. Celerway software have built-in load balancing to distribute bandwidth hungry connections across available fixed-line and mobile broadband connections for optimal performance. A range of load balancing policies are supported to balance performance, cost and data caps.
Load balancing policies:
Best quality – available connections are used relative to their individual throughput
Equal connection distribution – usage is distributed across all available connections
Best network only – route all traffic through the best connection, and use others as backup
Lowest cost – uses fixed line broadband, WiFi, or USB LAN connections before mobile broadband
Nimbus remote administration
When Celerway software is connected it automatically connects to the Nimbus administration system. Nimbus provides dashboards for easy management of large scale deployments, and configuration of core router features.
Selected features include:
Management of projects and users
Dashboards showing status of all deployed routers
Graphical representation of changes to connection mode, quality, and link state
Data usage per mobile and fixed line broadband connection
Quota control for mobile broadband with data caps
Monitor performance and up-time for each Internet connection
Weekly and monthly reports
Alerts in case of network failure
Interactive map with router GPS positioning
Phantom SD-WAN gateway
In multi-WAN/hybrid-WAN scenarios IP addresses change when connections fail over to different networks. Many applications require 100% uptime, or have trouble reconnecting after being moved to another link and IP. Celerway Phantom SD-WAN ensures 100% uptime, and the same IP address, no matter what happens to the underlay network links.
