Solutions for an Efficient Network
Network Visibility and Analytics
Whether an application is being delivered through private or public cloud, as software as a service or through a mobile device, end users and customers expect a high level of performance irrespective of how they are connected.
Every organisation nowadays has an application service catalogue consisting of sometimes many hundreds of applications, but not all of these are created equal. Using visibility tools and technology will allow you to capture the usage of applications both internal and external to your organisation, usually with surprising results compared to what you believe to be the case, one example being the proliferation of shadow IT delivering business critical applications to end users without the knowledge of IT.
Using analytics and reporting will enable you to make conscious decisions on what applications are important to your organisation, how applications perform from different locations, what are typical or normal traffic patterns and behaviours to help identify when something changes, where are the key bottlenecks in your network and be more confident on delivering SLA’s back to the business.
With next generation network technology like SD-WAN, imagine being able to prioritise an application’s traffic over your entire network no matter where the user might be or using SDN to secure an applications infrastructure without making huge investments and creating complex network topologies.
