Fixed (diagnosed) ongoing issue with link we had for months within minutes. Allowed us to do the same for our clients, where they have "unsolvable" issues with internet connectivity.

Pros
Easy to setup. Just plug it in, between your router and your network. Get useful data and analytics within minutes, that can be used to solve long standing issues which no-one is willing to take ownership of. Ability to go back in time and check logged information as to what was happening during a period where a user may have reported an issue to do with internet or WAN connectivity. Real time analytics, so you can make changes and apply fixes and see what affect it's had in real time. Easy to setup alerts based on triggers that anyone can program into the system. Great value for money, especially as it can drastically save money on underutilised links, and control traffic, negating un-necessary spend on upgrading links with more bandwidth. Ability to apply monitoring, filters and traffic rules across all devices at all managed sites, all at once. Web console accessible from anywhere, without any need to install software on a computer. Multiple metrics measured, like latency, jitter, error rate etc.. Ability to measure traffic by type, by user, by internal host/external host, by site, by link, by conversation etc.. (has many views to pinpoint issues). Continuous improvements and new features, without ever needing to upgrade anything, and back end is in the cloud. (hence no need for onsite servers and software).

Cons
Non ability to define separate bandwidth rules on two links running through the same hardware box. (rarely an issue, for 95% of sites). Only one port set per device can measure health of link (errors, jitter etc.) where as both ports can measure traffic flow.

Infrastructure cost saving. Understand a slow performance of infrastructure fast. Cost saving. perfect capacity planning. Improved working knowledge off the use of the infrastructure

Pros
Ease of use , central management and reporting is awesome central management multi ten-dance. brilliant fault finding and network planing tool. Affordable necessity not linked to bandwidth. Effective tool to understand and manage any network. Visibility is key off the applications but more the visibility of the user experience is measured and control the performance not just old school utilization. Application acceleration technologies has run to a end and is not of any benefit to the application due to inscription at application level compression has no value to application performance compered to bandwidth up grade cost it is now obsolete to accelerate

Cons
limited off-line capability. the need for internet access in high secure network is a problem sometimes . No policy scheduling - no fail over policy support. Limited export timelines compared to reporting - time line s

Lower TCO on network links. Decrease of network incidents and a faster resolution time for incidents.

Pros
We have installed Sinefa at more than 60 locations. It's very easy to implement, just install a probe (small box) between the network link you want to measure and control. Sinefa is fully cloud based, no further hardware is required. It will also automatically update and provide new features. Very flexible (only 3 types of probes), so you can grow with capacity without replacing probes. Traffic shaping is available so you can limit the amount of traffic an application can use. Supports SFLOW when inline implementation is not possible. Experienced support desk Low total cost of ownership with a flexible payment model

Cons
We would like a further integration with our firewalls. We now need to push all traffic trough the link and it would be nice if we can use direct firewall rules to monitor / shape the traffic. This is not a direct requiment but a nice to have feature.

Excellent product providing simple human readable information and a means to act on this.

Review Source: Capterra

Our business has a much more consistent internet experience since we have been able to identify what application and users have been using and/or abusing the link. This along with the ability to shape traffic has stopped the finger pointing, scheduling simple tasks to be done after hours and saved us spending on continual line upgrades to try to solve internet user experience issues.

Pros
Simple interface Data rolled in to logical groups which is easy to understand by people who do not have a degree in IT great workflow to see different data sets The ability to actually act on the data via the shaping Simple installation and management of the system for our own use and when supporting customers who use this product

Cons
For the heavy technical enterprise use some of the detail is not available latency graphs are not available

Bandwidth management insights and detailed reporting and measurement of our networks

Pros
Great visibility across multiple networks all in one pane of glass. Single policy push to all sites and the ability to manage point to point bandwidth between sites and compare performance in each office as well as comparing to available regionally based public probes.
