Creating Innovative Solutions Today for a Better Tomorrow

The unique power of “LiveAction” intelligent network software, already acknowledged by the DoD, is now being recognized by the commercial sector.

Referentia Systems Incorporated, a Hawaii-based technology firm, announced that its recent spin-off ActionPacked! Networks (APN) has been selected as one of Channel Reseller News (CRN)’s “25 coolest emerging vendors.” ActionPacked! Networks received the honors for its “LiveAction™” software, a product that capitalizes on the untapped power of existing IT infrastructure and empowers IT engineers to perform expert-level Cisco device management regardless of their level of experience in network management.

“This is a great example of the value and potential of true dual-use technology development,” said Referentia’s President and CEO Nelson Kanemoto. “Referentia was able to launch ActionPacked! Networks to commercialize the advanced networking technology we originally developed for the U.S. Marine Corps. Now the product is demonstrating great value and market positioning in the commercial sector, and Referentia is able to remain involved by selling the commercial product to military customers, as APN’s exclusive Federal government reseller.”

LiveAction™ software combines a highly interactive and easy to use graphical interface with an intelligent device knowledge base that eliminates the need to use the Cisco command line interface (CLI) for complex NetFlow and QoS operations. LiveAction™ software was originally developed for the U.S. Marine Corps to radically simplify QoS configuration and to reduce manpower required to manage mobile tactical networks. Today, the software is fully commercialized and is enabling both novice and expert IT engineers to perform advanced Cisco network design, deployment, troubleshooting, and device management without extensive training.

LiveAction™ is available to the commercial sector through approved resellers, VARs, and systems integrators. In addition, the company’s channel program provides reseller product training, sales and marketing support, as well as discounted not-for-resale demonstration licenses for approved partners. For government and DoD customers, Referentia Systems remains the exclusive reseller of LiveAction™ software, allowing the company to leverage its extensive experience and understanding of warfighter needs and government contracting.

ActionPacked! Networks made the CRN Emerging Technology list because it has an established solution provider program and formal guidelines for recruiting channel partners. APN also met the criteria for direct sales mix, channel strategy, and dominant market potential. Final selection to the Emerging Technology list was made at the discretion of the CRN editorial team after a review of the submitted information and positive conversations with current or targeted partners.
