Service Providers and Carriers
Net LineDancer is designed especially to meet the management needs of large scale networks like MSPs and data centers. Below is a list of some of the features tailored to these large deployments
MSP Operations Suite
SmartBridge - Besides enabling support for overlapping IP spaces, the SmartBridge allows network operations to occur geographically closer to the devices under management.
SmartChange - SmartChange templates for running unique commands against devices all at once, created with a point and click interface, supporting per-device value parameterization, and Excel spreadsheet import and export.
Terminal Proxy - allows users to SSH into netLD, followed by "jumping" into inventory devices with automatic login and full session recording.

SmartBridge - Option
Place a SmartBridge at each of your locations and they will all be managed centrally from the core netLD server. This enables management of devices with duplicate (routing domain) IP addresses, and reduces the bandwidth between the remote network and the core netLD server.
SmartBridge takes charge of processing configuration backups and performing changes and transfers only detected changes to the core server. Using the SmartBridge greatly simplifies managing devices across NATs and discrete networks in a secure fashion.
Since everything is stored in the core server, no information is lost in the case of trouble on the SmartBridge and only the core server needs to be backed up.
When the core server's software updates, all of the SmartBridges that are linked to the core server will automatically be updated as well.
Back to Top
As of version 12.03, NetLD provides an SSH server that can be used for easy, secure terminal access to all of the devices in your inventory. All interactions through this proxy are logged and searchable including information such as who, when, which device, and what commands have been run.
Other Features for Large Scale Networks
Integeration with NMS
Net LineDancer integrates monitoring and network management systems, with the ability to receive notifications about any configuration changes, backup errors and any breaches of compliance detected. This makes it easy to correlate the monitoring activities with the actual changes that have occurred on the network.
Data Export & Import
Allows users to export data from netLD, edit it, and then import it back into netLD.
Some available import and export features are:
* import and export the device inventory including all configurations
* import device credential configuration
* export tool result output
* import and export bulk updates settings
* import Cisco PnP
* configuration (optional)
*Zero-Touch has changed the name to Cisco Plug and Play from Net LineDancer ver.14.06.
Each device has a set of custom fields that allows association of additional information with each device in the inventory. These fields are completely searchable and read and write access to each field can be configured for each user.
User Access Control
Net LineDancer has user-defined roles based on a granular permission system that allows you to easily manage access for each user.
Net LineDancer can create reports on the devices, the configurations and more. Separate reports can easily be created for each of the customers' networks as well as specific sottoinciemi the inventory.
Advanced Device Search
Provides the ability to run cross-cutting searches across the various device inventory fields.
* IP address, Hostname
* Backup Status（Success/Failure）
* Date when changes occurred
* Device Tags, Custom Fields
* Vendor, Model, Version, Serial Number
