NetYCE company profile written by Caroline Chappell, senior analyst from Heavy Reading.
Weesp, April 29th 2014 - Rabobank has started migrating their Cisco network equipment at the local banks to HP switches. In total there are about 570 locations and 1,500 network routers and switches. This operation can be realised much faster than usual because all configurations are prepared in an intelligent way with the netYCE automation platform.
The netYCE software enables Rabobank to stage all new equipment with configurations that are created and managed centrally in the platform. In this way Rabobank can replace the equipment in a matter of months, which is considerably faster than usual for a migration of this kind. On the evening before each migration, the switch will be activated by the netYCE software. If the engineer has actually replaced the hardware it will automatically get the right configuration from netYCE. Each week 25 sites are migrated in this way.
Another advantage is that considerably less time is spent in case a device is broken. The engineer has sufficient spares with him and does not need to program the device on the spot; this is done automatically by netYCE. The software also provides automated updates and registration of the hardware in the monitoring software. Rabobank uses netYCE already for more than ten years as their central network provisioning and automation tool. More information can be found in the Rabobank Customer Case.
Technology agreement gives communications service providers more control of new product launches across multiple domains and multi vendor networks
TORONTO – March 31, 2014 —Sigma Systems, the leader in catalog-driven Idea-to-Install products, today announced it has signed a technology agreement with NetYCE that will accelerate new service fulfilment for complex business data services including Carrier Ethernet, Metro Ethernet and layer 2/3 VPN business connectivity. The companies will work together to ensure seamless integration of the Sigma Idea-to-Install product portfolio and the NetYCE platform for Design Driven Networking.
As of March 2014, NetYCE joined as member of the TM Forum. With its unique netYCE platform for network optimisation and automation, NetYCE will contribute to help companies streamline network engineering and operation processes, automate their existing infrastructures and assist in the transition to SDN and NFV networks.
Analyst group Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has announced NetYCE as "Vendor to Watch 2014". EMA "Vendors to Watch" are companies that deliver unique customer value by solving problems that had previously gone unaddressed or provide value in innovative ways.
SDN and NFV seem to have suddenly become important - not just down in the engineering department but up at board level. That's a welcome change for Wim Gerrits, CEO and founder of Netherlands-based network automation specialist, NetYCE, who says successful SDN-driven network automation is only possible if led by a top-down design driven approach.

The NLUUG is the association of (professional) Open Systems and Open Standards users in the Netherlands (https://www.nluug.nl/index-en.html). Since the late seventies, the NLUUG has brought together the community of systems administrators, programmers, researchers and IP network professionals. The primary goal of the NLUUG is to extend the application of, and knowledge about, open systems and UNIX. NLUUG is focused on the Netherlands, which means that our communication is usually in Dutch. Conferences tend to have about half of the presentations in English. Click on the following links for more information:
NetYCE will be at the Open Networking User Group on the 29th and 30th of October 2013 in New York. For people who are interested to meet up, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Open Networking User Group is a community of IT business leaders who exchange ideas and best practices for implementing Open Networking and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) designs. ONUG events are for IT executives, global network architects, and designers to learn from peers and early adopters managing private or public clouds, enterprise data centers, WAN or service provider networks. http://opennetworkingusergroup.com/

CTO and founder of NetYCE presenting: "No Need to Run from Design Complexity" at the NWA event 2012 in Paris. Today's businesses are demanding network agility and availability, while lowering the TCO. By designing and deploying the network from a central repository, complexity can be made manageable allowing you to create networks without compromise. This also touches on the multi-vendor discussion.
Eric Yspeert, CTO & Co-founder, NETYCE, Presenting on NWA 2011 event 2011 Cloud Computing: A New Angle on Configuration Control The effects of the Cloud computing revolution have been unmistakable across all IT disciplines, and the network is no exception. Discussing the YCE Platform. Eliminating the availability and performance risks of unsanctioned changes being made to devices in the field. Providing a means to standardize configurations, and an assured means for enforcing governance policies that become increasingly essential to upper layers of IT and business management.
