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




Intuitive and easy orchestration for DDI (DNS, DHCP, and IPAM)

Everything depends on DDI (DNS, DHCP, and IPAM). From the access edge to the core and beyond, your users, customers, and agents rely on DDI solutions to get where they’re going. Micetro is one of the best DDI solutions due in part to its overlay architecture.

Who can use Micetro?

Micetro unifies the experience of engaging with DDI services for operations, engineering, project teams, and 3rd parties. Anyone who administers, provisions, or requests DDI services can use Micetro to make migrations or MACs (Moves, Adds, Changes) simpler, faster, easier, and safer. Accelerate and remove fear from Change Management with a fine-grained and powerful RBAC (Role-Based Access Control) that adds a new layer of resilience to your organization.

What is Micetro

Micetro is the most intuitive DNS, DHCP, and IPAM (DDI) solution. It conducts your existing services using an overlay architecture which provides a range of benefits including but not limited to:

Investment Protection

Investment protection (inc. futureproofing/flexibility)

Greater Simplicity

Greater simplicity no matter where your services reside.

Increased Velocity

Increased velocity with unified workflows.

Easy Integration and Automation

Easy integration and automation using native connections and a unified API.

De-risked and Frictionless Operations

De-risked and frictionless operations with built-in prevention and policy enforcement.

Enhanced workflows and a range of out-of-the-box integrations can be rapidly embraced without any disruption to existing services or architectures. Institutional knowledge and expertise are preserved, resulting in a faster time to value when compared to other DDI solutions.

Where can I use Micetro?

Micetro allows you and your team to orchestrate both cloud-based and ‘on-prem’ services. Your network and systems footprint is not static. It grows, morphs, and changes just as your services, users, and software do. An overlay solution meets you where you are and helps you get where you want to go. With a focus on team collaboration, productivity, and first-class APIs, Micetro fits within your footprint and becomes your all-purpose DDI glue.

Micetro is the hidden engine that drives networks.

Powerful digital networks form the undisputed foundation of all modern business, communications, industry, transport, government, health and education and social activity.

To most of us, these networks are as invisible and unappreciated as the inner organs that keep our bodies moving, breathing and living. We only take notice, often quickly and painfully, when they stop working.

Each network’s functional reliability is determined by the split-second interplay of the critical network trinity: DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management, also known as DDI.

Too often network outages or expensive downtime can be traced back to incidents related to the functioning within, or interaction between, these DDI components. While the quality of machines and technology can be said to drive network capacity and capability, it is a network’s DDI design and administration that determines its efficiency, connectivity, and security – and often makes, or breaks, a company’s performance.
