VIAVI Sr. Director of Product Management, Charles Thompson, presented and fielded questions from panel of industry experts at Cisco Live US.
VIAVI network performance monitoring and diagnostics (NPMD) tools offer the ability to mine network data and apply deep packet analysis to optimize IT resources in real time or post-event.
Monitor Network Performance to Gain Valuable Insight
Too many fingers pointed at the network team and not enough time to get ahead of complaints? The greatest challenge with network performance troubleshooting is often knowing where to begin searching for the actual source of the performance issue. This challenge can be worsened as networks become abstract and decentralized whether through IoT, SD-WAN, or cloud technologies.
Network performance monitoring tools from VIAVI proactively identify the most serious network issues with an end-user experience score, problem diagnosis, and out-of-the-box workflows leading IT teams to resolution. All Observer intelligence is backed by complete, unaltered packet and flow data, providing wire data for granular security investigations and root-cause analysis.
Maintain Peak Network Performance Monitoring of all IT Services
Observer provides comprehensive visibility and insight into critical IT resources, whether in the data center core, network edge, or cloud. Delivering network and application insight from the perspective of the end-user, Observer helps network and operations teams ensure maximum effectiveness of IT services through three critical use cases:
- Managing new initiatives and daily operations
- Mitigating risk from planned and unexpected event
- Solving performance and security issues
The network performance monitoring solution from VIAVI serves as the starting point for troubleshooting service anomalies, managing network resources, and aiding investigations of incidents of concern (IOC) or confirmed security breaches. From here, IT teams can quickly gain access to relevant application, network, infrastructure, and user operational metrics for a variety of critical network performance and network security scenarios.
