Overall, NetBrain is a great application. Areas for improvement include connectivity to non-managed devices, a few path discovery challenges involving VPN tunnels, and a workstation client for Macs. Training is a strong point for Netbrain. Very well defined and orchestrated. Need to make time to take full advantage of training. Implementation process was also very good. Tech support does a good job addressing questions and follow-up. There is a support community blog, but a wiki from NetBrain on FAQs and How Tos would be great. Again, Support will take and answer any question you throw at them.

I use it primarily to access many devices quickly. Also have used VLAN mapping extensively.

Netbrain is an incredibly useful tool. Additionally, it has the potential to be far, far greater than it is today given the foundation they have laid with the current product.

The overall experience has been very good. The only thing I would like to see is a clear configuration and installation guide. One feature we would like to see is a layer one overview that can rival the Cisco WAE solution.

Everyone I worked with at Netbrain new the technology from top to bottom making the integration and startup extremely easy. Our sales rep was very invested in getting our staff trained for a successful launch.

Product functionality is very good. As are the features. The configuration interface/tools are not the most intuitive. There is definetely a learning curve with getting the product to do what you want, but the vendor provides very good training and help.

NetBrain has been a great addition to our tools arsenal. My team uses it daily, and it has sped up troubleshooting of network issues and helped with the rollout of changes to the network. We can dynamically map our network with quickness and must ease to reduce problems with changes that were not updated manually on our other tools. We have used NetBrain to help monitor changes and find problems much quicker than ever before. We can do real-time traffic flow and search through all of our configuration files on all of our devices in seconds. We can create groups of devices with particular settings configured incorrectly and fix them with relative ease. NetBrain tool is becoming not only a tool we use in our daily use in the Network Section, but across other departments that need access to what NetBrain can provide in data, location, and devices connected to the network. Our documentation of the network, changes, and reports have never looked better. Have tools able to do quick builds of inventory right down to the port level of a switch is a time saver when devices go down, and you need to replace items. If we have any issues, NetBrain is quick to respond with their support team to any question and always willing to work with my staff on a topic that comes up or using the tool to do more for us than they intended.

Overall experience has been excellent. Installation and upgrades have been flawless. The system provides reliable monitoring and documentation of our network -- just as advertised. Online training programs have been very useful to our network team.

Netbrain software provides a simpler way to manage our complex network. Network engineers emphasized a network tool was required to facility troubleshooting and having a graphical view of our network. Netbrain was selected since it proved to be a mature application and it was recommended by several colleagues. The implementation was extremely simple, the software is very efficient identifying network devices and creating an accurate dynamic network diagram.
