Improve Service Delivery with the Only Service Assurance Platform Built Specifically for Managed Network Service Providers
Managing an IT environment is a challenging undertaking. That challenge increases exponentially for managed service providers as they must deliver services to multiple environments that are distributed geographically, or in the cloud, all while maintaining security across and between tenants.
To aid Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in their efforts, Optanix has purpose built a range of MSP tools. Our cloud-based Service Infrastructure Management Layer (SIML) enables MSPs to securely monitor and access customer premise environments from a single, centralized interface. It is designed to streamline network operations center (NOC) processes by allowing engineers to quickly prioritize and address problems across multiple sites/customers.
Optanix also empowers managed service providers to operate more efficiently and effectively by providing them with reports and dashboards that offer access to relevant real-time and historical information.
Manage All Customer Environments from a Centralized Interface with SIML
To improve the effectiveness of OPTX for MSPs, we leveraged our own deep experience as an MSP to create SIML, a cloud-based, multi-tenant MSP tool for centrally monitoring and remediating distributed customer environments. It works by consolidating customer instances of OPTX into a single application, maximizing the efficiencies of remote service operations staff centers.
SIML offers secure, bi-directional, multi-tenant remote access to distributed customer environments and includes multiple MSP-specific automations and workflows. It can help MSPs reduce mean time to repair (MTTR) and improve staff efficiency, consequently increasing customer satisfaction and lowering NOC costs.
How SIML Helps Managed Service Providers
Secure Access and Control
Increase security with SIML controller – which enables NOC staff to access remote devices without the need to keep track of security credentials for individual devices – and by keeping sensitive data local to customer sites.
Reduce MTTR by automatically routing problem tickets directly to the specialist groups with expertise in that type of problem, thus avoiding the need for additional, time-consuming processing by generalists.
Centralized Views of Multiple Customers
Create efficiencies and avoid a “swivel chair” approach to management by viewing events and other data at multiple customer environments in an aggregated fashion.

Provide IT Ops with the Exact Information They Need
OPTX offers a range of dashboards and reports designed to deliver timely and accurate business service and infrastructure information. These visualizations can be customized based on role or at an individual level to provide quick access to the most relevant real-time and historical information.
OPTX includes an assortment of out-of-the-box dashboards and reports for a broad set of IT infrastructure and business services, including Cisco Unified Communications & Collaboration (UC&C) and Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise (UCCE) solutions. Additionally, custom dashboards and reports can be created within OPTX to meet the needs of various groups and individuals across the business, either by modifying the out-of-the-box offerings or developing new visualizations from the ground up.
