Enhance Your Network with Fusion Broadband SA: Meet Illuminate & Antares for Unmatched Performance


3 min read

In today's fast-paced digital landscape, robust network performance and security are paramount. Fusion Broadband, a leader in innovative connectivity solutions, presents two powerful platforms—Illuminate and Antares—that offer unrivaled visibility and control over your network. Let's dive into the game-changing features of these platforms.

Illuminate: Unveiling the Power of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI): Illuminate, Fusion Broadband's advanced traffic analytics platform, is powered by an enhanced Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine infused with cutting-edge AI technology. This dynamic duo provides unparalleled transparency into network activities, allowing for a proactive approach to managing threats, bottlenecks, and usage patterns.

Illuminate's Three-Tier Solution Stack:

  1. DPI Engine: This lightweight engine identifies applications, protocols, hostnames, encryption ciphers, and other vital network attributes. It seamlessly integrates into network devices for traffic identification, firewalling, QoS, and cybersecurity.

  2. Informatics Engine: By collecting data from local DPI engines and leveraging cloud capabilities, Informatics transforms raw data into actionable insights. It facilitates device discovery, application analysis, network risk assessment, and more.

  3. Data Feeds: Illuminate's application intelligence delivers comprehensive data on popular applications, including domains, IPs, CDNs, platforms, protocols, and additional network attributes.

Key Features of Illuminate:

  • Device Discovery: Automatically tracks and identifies new devices on the network for classification, association, and labeling.

  • Policy and Productivity: Enforces strict firewall and DNS policies, ensuring secure and productive browsing.

  • Risk and Reputation: Utilizes machine learning to identify cyber threats and risky behaviors, fostering a secure environment.

  • Applications: Employs deep packet inspection to accurately identify applications in use on the network.

  • Real Protocol Analysis: Identifies protocols in real-time, providing granular insights into network activities.

  • Geolocation: Pinpoints the regions around the world where network connections are being made.

  • Hostname Visibility: Extracts crucial hostname information from various traffic flows and protocols.

Illuminate: Metadata, Not Data: Illuminate prioritizes privacy and security. It exclusively stores metadata—statistics and summaries of flow data—without capturing actual data transmitted over the network. This approach maintains compliance with data protection standards.

Fusion Illuminate Add-On: Network Intelligence and Site Analytics:

  • Bandwidth Accounting: Generate tailored bandwidth reports based on user, group, application, device type, OS, protocol, and more.

  • Detailed Connection Tracking: Access metadata for every network connection for in-depth analysis.

  • Cyberthreat Detection: Go back in time to trace the source of security incidents.

  • Advanced Filters and Forensics: Drill down into network data with customizable filters.

  • Compliance Support: Facilitates compliance with regulations like PCI DSS and HIPAA by offering necessary data for review.

Antares: Performance Management and Monitoring:

  • Grafana Graphs: Leverage Antares' intuitive Grafana graphs for performance insights, ranging from 1 year down to 1 minute.

  • Bitrates, QoS, Latency, CPU, Disk Usage, Packet Loss, and Link Stability: Gain comprehensive visibility into critical network metrics.

  • Outage Status: Stay informed about network outages and prevented downtime.

Wrap: Fusion Broadband's Illuminate and Antares platforms empower businesses with unmatched network visibility, control, and performance management. Illuminate's deep packet inspection and AI-driven analytics redefine network intelligence, while Antares' Grafana graphs provide real-time performance insights. Together, they form a dynamic duo for businesses seeking a competitive edge in today's digital landscape.
