Integrate Network Bridge Hardware and Huawei

Integrating Network Bridge Hardware and Huawei with your monitoring system

To integrate Network Bridge Hardware and Huawei with your monitoring system, reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating Network Bridge Hardware and Huawei and how that can support your monitoring system.

What is Network Bridge Hardware?

A Bridge is a computer networking device used to connect two or more hosts or network segments together. This function, called Network Bridging, creates a single, aggregate network. As Bridging connects two separate networks as if they were a single network, it is different from Routing.

Routing allows multiple networks to communicate independently and yet remain separate. By looking at the MAC (Media Access Control) address of the devices connected to each segment, bridges can either forward data or block it from crossing. They are used to make a larger logical LAN, by connecting two physical LANs. In the OSI (open systems interconnection) Model, Bridges work only at the Physical and Data Link layers. There are three main types of network bridging technologies which are; simple bridging, multiport bridging, and learning or transparent bridging.

What is Huawei?

Huawei is a multinational technology company based in Shenzhen, Guangdong. It is known for its networking and telecommunication products, and consumer electronics. Huawei designs, develops, and sells these products as is one of the largest companies in the networking market. Huawei was founded in 1987, and now provides its products and services in more than 170 countries around the world. 

 

There are four main business groups in Huawei; Carrier Network Business Group, Enterprise Business Group, Consumer Business Group, and Cloud & AI Business Group. The Carrier Network Business Group offers wireless, core and fixed networks, carrier software, and global services. The Cloud & AI Business Group offers servers, storage products and cloud services. They started to provide network infrastructure, fixed and wireless communication, and data centers at the beginning of 2011 and have now become one of the biggest in the world.

What is MetricFire?

MetricFire is a full-scale platform that offers infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. The platform allows you to use either Prometheus- or Graphite-as-a-Service and have your metrics displayed on aesthetically-pleasing Grafana dashboards. 

     

MetricFire offers its users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, which is made up of three of the most popular open-source monitoring software services: Prometheus, Graphite, and Grafana. As well, plugins for a number of other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.

        

Through this hosted environment, MetricFire works to boost the unique features of the open source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance: 

Cloud and on Premise Monitoring

Hosted Prometheus

Hosted Graphite

Grafana Dashboards

        

Whether to use Prometheus or Graphite is a great question. We’ve looked deeper into this decision in our blog article, Prometheus or Graphite. While Prometheus is a newer software that has a multidimensional data structure, Graphite is robust and sufficient. The key thing to remember is that Hosted Graphite by MetricFire is more than just Graphite. Our Hosted Graphite product actually adds data dimensionality and better data storage.
