Grid operator Enexis has selected network monitoring and analysis company TiNC Works! for the independent measurement of the network services as provided by, for example, KPN. Grid operator Enexis transports electricity and gas to homes and businesses in the North, East and South Netherlands. With 25 office locations and more than 4,500 employees around the country, a fast and stable IT network is important for Enexis to continue to provide excellent service to more than 2.8 million customers.
Prevention is better than cure. Failure of the IT network causes, in addition to inconvenience, direct and indirect economic damage to both its own organization and Enexis customers. The sensors provided by the Dutch TiNC Works! will help Enexis measure the quality of the IT network independently and with great regularity. The standard SNMP solutions available on the market mainly show average traffic volumes transiting the interfaces of equipment; TiNC Works! on the other hand measures the health of the entire network between the user and the information system, providing additional insights beyond the existing monitoring solutions.
"TiNC Works! Enexis helps in the early identification of possible future network disruptions. This enables Enexis to act proactively instead of reactively", says Pier Boonstra, ICT consultant at Enexis.
This unique approach to network monitoring has multiple advantages for all parties involved. "With the help of the simple plug-and-play system, Enexis has the ability to monitor the quality of the IT network from almost every location - and with TiNC Works! Enexis can objectively assess its connectivity providers on the basis of independent measurement data.", says Marco van den Akker, commercial director at TiNC Works! Opting for TiNC Works! gives Enexis the means to check the promised service levels and availability.

"TiNC Works! is a great addition to our monitoring systems. It helps us detect performance issues before the users even notice it - something our regular NMS just can't do."
"I love the way TiNC Works! gives me access to both long-term measurements and short-term diagnostic tests such as traceroute. As my company has outsourced network operations I can't login to my own routers anymore so I was effectively blind to network issues. TiNC Works! fixed all that!"
