Exinda Enhances WAN Optimization Solutions with Network Reporting Center
July 05, 2011
Exinda, a provider of Wide Area Network (WAN) optimization and application performance management solutions featuring Unified Performance Management (UPM), announced the launch of new Network Reporting Center (NRC) to its WAN optimization solutions offering.
The Network Reporting Center, according to Exinda officials, is an advanced reporting solution that delivers comprehensive network diagramming and long-term historical trending and analytics, enabling network managers to get a complete view of their entire worldwide network.
According to Exinda, reporting at the port layer is not sufficient for most network managers. As thousands of business and recreational applications run over common ports, it is impossible to control these applications without a comprehensive reporting solution that integrates easily with the existing network, with no additional hardware required.
NRC’s powerful centralized reporting provides a global view into business-critical applications, WAN utilization, and network and application performance problems across customers’ entire worldwide network.
Once installed on the WAN, NRC collects network data from each location, including head office and branches, and consolidates the data into a single, centralized reporting dashboard.
Further, the new WAN optimization solution provides real-time troubleshooting and by the minute reporting in real time, as well as up to two years of historical data on all applications traversing the WAN and on an organization's Internet connections. By going beyond the port and protocol reporting, the NRC shows the actual applications and users consuming network resources.
The NRC is offered as a cloud solution or as an on-site virtual appliance.
“Network managers often struggle to answer questions about network performance, such as why the network is slow, how are important business applications performing on the network, which ones are consuming all of the bandwidth, and how much bandwidth is being consumed by recreational applications,” said Kevin Suitor (News - Alert), Exinda's vice president of marketing, in a statement.
NRC now provide the managers with the tools to monitor overall network performance, analyze historical data to anticipate problems, identify key trends in performance, and address them before they impact the user experience, Suitor added.
Recently Exinda delivered a tutorial on "Managing Mobile Devices in the WAN" at the Mobile Computing Summit at the Hyatt Regency SF Airport in Burlingame, CA (News - Alert). Kevin Suitor delivered the tutorial as part of the "Bringing Mobility to the Enterprise" session.Rajani Baburajan is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
