Solution Brief

My Kentik Portal

Overview

In today’s commoditized infrastructure services marketplace, service providers and MSPs must continuously add value to their connectivity, bandwidth, and remote services to maintain market competitiveness. Network observability and analytics have become an important source for differentiation and new business opportunities, as well as an important foundation for transparency, validation, and trust. My Kentik Portal lifts the hurdles of in-house development and costly deployment and maintenance providing instant time-to-market.

My Kentik Portal Enables More Business

My Kentik Portal (MKP) is a flexible, user-friendly, multi-tenant white-label network observability cloud platform that enables Kentik customers to market network analytics on top of their existing services. One-size-fits-all rarely works to deliver value through data; MKP’s analytics data can be customized to serve customers’ unique requirements. Kentik customers can use MKP to monetize their network data to deliver network observability and analytics services, and value in multiple ways, including:

  • Benchmark against competition
  • Validate SLAs
  • Track KPIs (e.g. uptime and MTTR)
  • Analyze security incidents
  • Optimize cost and performance
  • Plan capacity
  • Enable network analytics self-service
  • Reduce support load by empowering tenants to observe their networks
  • Identify opportunities for new and targeted services

My Kentik Portal Serves Landlords and Their Tenants

The landlord interface allows landlords to provision and configure tenants. It is also the place where landlords will configure general attributes of the tenant interface such as branding, or the URL at which the latter is available.

The tenant interface is a standalone branded portal from which tenants are able to consume the analytics and alerts configured for them by landlords.

Slice and Package to Fit Your Customer Base

MSPs can offer curated network observability packages and analytics based on the tenants’ infrastructure data.

Service providers can offer curated network observability and analytics based on the tenants’ traffic data.

How to Start with My Kentik Portal

Starting with MKP is effortless. MKP is included in Kentik Pro for up to 50 tenants and in Premium for up to 100 tenants. Customers can find My Kentik Portal in the menu bar, select it, and start registering their tenants. Customers can also request an “Advanced My Kentik Portal” add-on, which lifts all tenant caps (i.e. no limit to the number of tenants) and removes Kentik branding (“Powered by Kentik” mentions).

Existing libraries can be used to provide out-of-the-box dashboards.
