BlueCat acquires Men&Mice to boost its DNS, DHCP and IP address management platform and help organizations improve network resiliency and simplify network management.





Boost DHCP performance and reliability.

Micetro by Men&Mice is designed to facilitate uninterrupted connectivity in any network environment and provide DHCP management for a wide range of servers within a single UI.

Get uninterrupted connectivity and reliability with DHCP management.

As part of the DDI trinity with DNS and IPAM, DHCP holds the key to the advanced automation of a network’s IP address functionality.

Each connectable device, from printers to cameras to desktop computers or smartphones, needs an IP address to get online. In the era of IoT and BYOD, virtualization and the cloud, networks are flooded with IP address requests from a constantly increasing number of fixed and mobile devices.

Without DHCP servers, all IP addresses would have to be assigned manually, leaving networks both slow and exposed to risks associated with human error .

We designed our DHCP management controls to facilitate uninterrupted connectivity in any network environment. Built to manage a wide range of DHCP servers within a single UI, we allow unlimited speed and reliability for your enterprise network.

Improve network control through DHCP.

DHCP management is critical to enterprise network management.

Efficient distribution of the available network resources is key to ensure uptime, maximize performance, and avoid network congestion that can threaten business objectives.

With Micetro's DHCP management features, network administrators can take full advantage of DHCP servers and devices in the network, boosted by the seamless integration with DNS and IPAM.

Benefitting from the unified orchestration interface, managing DHCP in Micetro is streamlined, intuitive, and transparent. Automating DHCP operations is also simplified through the fully-featured API, regardless of the underlying technology, enabling network administrators to be more productive.

Find DORA quickly with Men&Mice DHCP.

The stages of DHCP operations are sometimes referred to as DORA, short for server discovery, IP lease offer, IP lease request and IP lease acknowledgement. The speed and reliability at which an enterprise’s DHCP service finds and executes its DORA, affects an enterprise’s business efficiency at its modern-day core: 24/7 uninterrupted connectivity.

The Men&Mice DHCP Management module is designed and built to help large enterprises find their DORA fast. Capable of managing a wide variety of different DHCP servers within a single UI, the Men&Mice DHCP Management module provides support for ISC DHCP servers, Windows DHCP, Cisco IOS DHCP, Kea DHCP, as well as the Men&Mice virtual DHCP appliance. On its own, or as part of the powerful Micetro by Men&Mice, the Men&Mice DHCP Management Module’s advanced network efficiency elevates an enterprise’s business value to new heights.

Call time on needless errors.

The Men&Mice DHCP Management Module pulls all server data, management and administration capabilities into a single, unified interface, accessed via the Management Console or web browser interface. Role-based access management allows for powerful centralization and task delegation, further protecting a network by tracking when, where and by whom any changes are made.

Real-time two-way Active Directory synchronization means changes made locally on a DHCP server are automatically replicated and reflected in Micetro by Men&Mice, and vice versa, keeping your network clean, fast and reliable.

Turn investment expense into capital.

The DHCP Management module seamlessly consolidates hybrid operating environments consisting of Unix/Linux, Windows, Cisco IOS and ISC servers – or a mixture thereof – helping you to extend your enterprise’s existing infrastructure investment.

Simple, safe and effortless scope migration capabilities between DHCP servers is made possible by the easy-to-use Scope Migration Wizard.

Support for scripting through the robust SOAP API, REST API or JSON-RPC (with Python) allows network engineers to customize automation of complex tasks to suit your business needs.

Gain the flexibility to take flight into the cloud.

Large-scale migration of data centers and network services into the cloud bring positive benefits to enterprises, but also pose new challenges to secure and effective network management. A solution’s ability to adapt to the fluidity of current and future technological trends, is becoming mission critical to DDI. As a result, DDI vendors hasten to add cloud-compatible features onto their current solutions.

For Men&Mice software products, however, adaptability is built into the core architecture, consolidating network visibility and functionality on the ground and in the cloud. The flexible and easily customizable Men&Mice architecture, together with fully integrated support for Amazon Route 53, Azure DNS and OpenStack, allow enterprises the freedom to take the step towards cloud integration if, or when, the need arises.
