LiveAction is a privately held enterprise software company that develops IT network performance management, visualization and analytics software. The company’s headquarters are in Palo Alto, California and has employees throughout the U.S. including Nashville, Tampa and Honolulu as well as overseas in France, Ukraine and India.
LiveAction was founded in 2007 as Referentia Systems, Inc. Referentia Systems Inc.’s hallmark product, LiveAction, was initially developed to support the U.S. Department of Defense to better manage its IT network by simplifying quality of service configuration and reducing the manpower required to manage mobile tactical networks. The project, led by John K. Smith, was spun into ActionPacked Networks to provide customers across a variety of industries with greater visibility and analytics into the performance of their IT networks. In 2014, ActionPacked Networks changed its name to LiveAction and Smith is currently executive vice president and chief technology officer.
In December of 2017, LiveAction announced its acquisition of the service provider network monitoring technology of LivingObjects, a Toulouse-France based software development company. The acquisition enables LiveAction to expand its technology offerings to further support service providers and their enterprise customers through the formation of a Service Provider business unit and the introduction of the LiveSP (Service Provider) product. LiveAction was named to the Visionaries quadrant in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics.
Simplify the network.
Deliver better digital experiences by providing continuous insight, service assurance, and control of enterprise networks.
LiveNX simplifies the complexity of monitoring, analyzing, and configuring QoS, NetFlow, LAN, WAN, Routing, and IP SLA. It provides comprehensive end-to-end visibility into the IT network to accurately perform configuration changes, resulting in a higher performing network while decreasing total cost of ownership. Replacing complicated error-prone command lines with an intuitive graphical user interface, LiveAction includes rich visualizations of the network topology plus in-depth views of individual devices, interfaces, flows and routes. The topology view shows how flows and routes traverse the network in real-time and highlights any source of congestion.As more enterprises move toward software defined networks, they need assurance that their applications and devices will perform as expected while consistently delivering great online experiences to users. The ability to provide those great online experiences is becoming more challenging. LiveNX addresses those issues by masking the behind-the-scenes complexity, simplifying the network, and providing comprehensive visibility across the hybrid network.
The LiveNX platform also provides network engineers and IT operations teams with advanced management and monitoring of SD-WAN environments. LiveNX offers complete visibility into SD-WAN environments, regardless of the specific SD-WAN solution in place (i.e. Viptela, Meraki, Cisco IWAN, Silver Peak, etc.). This greater visibility is delivered through a single pane of glass, which enables users to proactively identify and address potential issues before they impact network performance or the user’s experience.
LiveNX maximizes a company’s investments in IT network management by ensuring users consistently have optimal online experiences without interruptions or delays.
