It is very easy to manage. It has good security, and it is working well with our firewall.

The most valuable feature is its simplicity in navigating through the dashboard. It's well set out, and the layout is nice and user friendly.

A lot of clients enjoy seeing layer 7 visibility. They get a good indication and insight into what is happening in their network and what applications are being used the most. They can then customize and give preference to business-critical applications.

It can analyze the traffic that it is picking up from what may be a rogue access point, and it is able to identify those and send relevant notifications.

The feature I find most valuable is the single pane of glass where you can configure a monitor view, all from one dashboard. For example, on the wireless side, you can configure it under the configuration panel, and then view statistics like location analytics, user analytics, etc.

There is no need to swap the hardware at all the locations, and importing the APs into the Dashboard was a simple and quick process.

It has improved my organization in the way that we've got a much better wireless coverage than we had before, and secondly, we have the visibility of all the users.

Hi  Currently we handle around 4000 devices on-prem UIM and we´re thinking about increasing the amount of discovered servers by installing a secondary SaaS hub to cover the different cloud installed servers over the internet. Has anybody done this? How complex is it? Do you recommend another solution that can integrate with UIM?

Hi We do around 35000 devices using Saas but not with CA UIM. We have our own developed software called Sintelligent.” https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQCMXdWyI4daPZSHqK8XVC-PZR05MDWCj “ The trick is to make sure that your throughput can be handled by the hardware your solution runs on and also provides a scalability factor for growth.

Hi, Installing a secondary hub is quite straight forward and easy, depending on the network monitoring supplier you are using, Most deployments have at least one additional hub. For load balancing, enterprise deployments can have several to hundreds. Secondary hubs are typically dedicated servers. They are used: * To provide failover capability if the primary hub is unavailable. * In enterprise deployments, to host services and management consoles, such as Unified Management Portal (UMP) and the Alarm Server (nas). * For data collection and dispersion. In an enterprise deployment, tunnels and queues connect secondary hubs to form a hierarchy that securely transports monitoring data to the primary hub. Contact your provider and ask them if they can create a secondary or subnet server. Feel free to message me if you need any further help.. Regards Aysha
