Every service provider knows that granular network visibility plays a vital role in helping operational teams solve problems and roll out new products faster by showing them exactly what's going on inside the network. But as today's 10G links fill up and organizations begin to make the transition to 40G and 100G in their production networks, it's becoming harder and harder to get the level of visibility necessary for effective network management.
In this conversation with 25-year industry veteran Spencer Greene, we will discuss topics including:
- The growing importance of network visibility and how it helps with the delivery of applications such as VDI and UC
- The difference between network monitoring and network recording, and the importance of "playback" functionality in troubleshooting network issues
- What challenges organizations face as they begin to saturate their 10G tools and begin the transition to 40G and 100G networks
