AX DHCP | IP Address Management (IPAM) Software

IP Address Management And Provisioning

Designed To Benefit Carrier-Grade Networks - As Flexible As Can Be!

AX DHCP server is a clusterable carrier-grade DHCP / IPAM (IP Address Management) solution that can be seamlessly integrated within given provisioning platforms. AX DHCP copes with FTTH, ONT provisioning, VOIP and IPTV services. Telecommunications carriers and internet service providers (ISPs) need powerful and robust infrastructure that supports future workloads. DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM) is a critical networking technology for every service provider that ensures customer services availability, security and performance.


Key Features of AX DHCP

  • Fast and reliable IPv4 and IPv6 address management

  • For DOCSIS, FTTX, VoIP and IPTV services

  • Zero-touch network element configuration

  • DNS and IPAM

What is IP Address Management?

IP Address Management, or IPAM, is the administration of the assignment and tracking of IP addresses within a network. IPAM is a core function within any network infrastructure and its proper implementation is critical to the operation of the network.

Our IPAM solutions provide a centralized view of all IP address activity on the network as well as automated tools for managing IP addresses. This allows network administrators to quickly identify and resolve potential problems with duplicate or conflicting IP addresses, incorrect subnet masks, and other networking issues that can cause problems with connectivity or lead to security vulnerabilities.

What are the Benefits of IP Address Management?

There are many benefits to implementing an IPAM solution, including:

  • Improved visibility into the network: IPAM provides a centralized view of all IP address activity on the network, making it easier to identify and resolve potential problems.

  • Reduced downtime: Automated tools for managing IP addresses can help to reduce downtime by quickly resolving conflicts and other networking issues.

  • Improved security: By preventing duplicate or conflicting IP addresses, IPAM can help to improve security and prevent unauthorized access to devices on the network.

  • Improved efficiency: IPAM can improve the efficiency of network administration by automating tasks such as address assignment and tracking.


Why is IP Address Management Important?

In today's world, almost all devices are connected to the internet in some way.

This has led to a huge increase in the number of devices that need to be assigned an IP address. IP addresses are a finite resource, and if they are not managed properly, it can lead to problems with connectivity or security.

IP address management is important because it helps to ensure that all devices on a network can communicate with each other and that there are no duplicate or conflicting IP addresses.
