(12 February 2015)

First IPAM-as-a-Service Equips Companies Worldwide to manage the exponential growth of IP Addresses, facilitating rapid deployment and reducing cost to implement

Fujitsu, a leading information communication technology (ICT) company, today announced the availability of its pay-per-use, IP Address Management-as-a-Service solution through an agreement with BT, one of the world’s leading providers of communications and IPAM services and solutions. Among the first to market, this solution leverages BT Diamond IP and the Fujitsu Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service Trusted Public S5 (TPS5) platform to deliver the first “as-a-service” IP address management (IPAM) solution, which positions and prepares enterprises to manage the exponential growth of IP addresses on a pay-as-you-go basis, supporting low cost of entry and driving significantly reduced operating expense.

Through this collaboration, Fujitsu utilizes BT’s IPAM product to offer not only IPAM services, but also the option for a full enterprise DHCP, DNS, IPAM (DDI) solution, providing centralized control of IP address space and supported customer-deployed DNS and DHCP servers. This provides customers improved management and administration capabilities, streamlined workflow, and better accountability and stability. Customers benefit from the assurance that their inventory of assignable IP addresses remains current and sufficient, reducing the risk of duplicate addresses, human errors and version control issues.

“With the proliferation of smartphones, mobile devices, and VoIP relying on IP-based networks, Fujitsu recognized the need to control and manage the exponential growth of IP addresses,” said Will Geoghegan, cloud architect, TPS5 Cloud and ISV Partner Solutions, Fujitsu America, Inc. “We’re excited about our collaboration with BT and to deliver the first cloud-based IP Address Management tool to market, offering our customers a SaaS version of BT Diamond IP for their IP address management challenges.”

IPAM-as-a-Service enables customers to plan, track and manage the Internet Protocol address space with integrated DDI functions accessed through a uniform graphical user interface. It helps to improve efficiency, security and reliability of IPAM tasks and reduces the time and costs associated with network management. The solution supports IPv4 and IPv6, as well as DHCP and DNS features, to protect infrastructure investments and deliver a return on investment of 150 percent or more.

“We are pleased that Fujitsu has selected BT Diamond IP as their IPAM solution provider,” said Michael Dooley, Vice President, Software Solutions for BT Diamond IP, BT. “As Internet users continue tracking exponential growth projections and deployments of Internet of Things (IoT) applications, customers face a growing need for more dynamic address management. BT’s partnership with Fujitsu, using our BT Diamond IP solution, enables us to continue offering best in class IP management capabilities to our customers with an alternative implementation model through cloud delivery.”

Fujitsu’s IPAM-as-a-Service is available through Fujitsu to new and existing customers in North America.
