Where DDI Meets Universities’ Needs

Universities are competing with one another for students, and academic excellence is not enough anymore to differentiate themselves. Higher education institutions will compete largely on their ability to offer modern facilities and new services like Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) for students, professors, and researchers, while at the same time looking to optimize their operational costs. Different entities within the institution require autonomy to administer their network services.


Poorly managed IPAM and DNS-DHCP services lead to a loss of visibility for the entire network infrastructure. In situations like this, there is a real risk of deploying conflicting networks, blocking communications, and leading to service unavailability.


EfficientIP offers an integrated solution to intelligently simplify and automate the design, deployment, and management of critical DNS, DHCP, and IPAM infrastructure for fast and secure new services.


  • Increase network team efficiency and performance with workflow management

  • Reduce time to market to support new initiatives

  • Improve team productivity with advanced delegation

“We chose EfficientIP for its functionality, ease-of-use and cost-effectiveness. The system is also logically laid out and making bulk changes is extremely quick. The entire EfficientIP solution with optional RPZ feeds came in at a cost below what one vendor wanted to charge just for the RPZ subscriptions.”
