Our router provides shaping and control, why do I need Sinefa?
You are unlikely to be able to see historical performance or 1- second visibility, making it much harder to diagnose network problems. Sinefa is a high-resolution affordable tool for diagnosing network performance issues.
We have change fatigue, how hard is it to deploy and use Sinefa?
Deployment is simple - sign up for an account, order a probe, install the probe, see your network. Once installed, Sinefa makes life easier for network managers. Being able to see the network, alert you when quality issues arise and the ability to give core applications priority can reduce the stress associated with managing a network.
Does Sinefa work with Riverbed, Cascade, Cisco etc.
The Sinefa cloud-based application can collect netflow from such appliances and use it to provide you with visibility but not the network quality or shaping features. Some technical skills are required to configure the system in this instance.
What if our network management is outsourced to an MSP?
We can work with your managed service provider to bring you Sinefa, you just need to put us in touch with them.
Can you do anything to reduce the cost of the hardware?
Where the cost of hardware is a barrier, we can provide independent financing services for you. These services are completely independent of Sinefa and we do not in anyway represent or warrant their performance. It is entirely up to you to determine where the finance is suitable for you.
How do you decide who sets the shaping policies, how do you decide who the ultimate controller of the software is?
As a matter of good governance, the person responsible for network performance should also be responsible for setting shaping policies.
