  • WAN Management Strategies for 2021 and Beyond Recorded: Feb 4 2021 35 mins
    Shamus McGillicuddy, VP of Research Enterprise Management Associates and Aaron Kagawa, Technical Product Manager for Kentik
    Change is the only constant with today’s wide-area network (WAN). Internet connectivity, multi-cloud architectures, software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) adoption, and pandemic-driven work-from-anywhere initiatives have turned today’s networks upside-down. But one thing hasn’t changed. The business expects applications to be at peak performance on the network.

    It’s up to the network management team to operationalize the evolving WAN. If you’re struggling to keep up, this webinar will help you chart a path toward operational excellence.

    Join Shamus McGillicuddy, vice president of research for Enterprise Management Associates, and Kentik for insight into how network operations teams are successfully managing the chaos of today’s WAN.

    This webinar explores:

    * How enterprises maintain visibility as they migrate from MPLS to internet-based WAN
    * Best practices for monitoring and troubleshooting SD-WAN technology
    * Strategies for supporting end-user experience for home workers
    * How active monitoring solutions can help measure application performance across the network and into the cloud
  • How to Continuously Monitor Inter- and Intra-Cloud Performance Recorded: Jan 27 2021 43 mins
    Anil Murty, Director of Product Management for Kentik
    You moved to the cloud because they said that the cloud is “always on” (which it is!) but is it as reachable as your own data center was? With Kentik you can take the guesswork out of that question using our new Cloud Performance Meshes.

    Join Kentik product expert Anil Murty as he demonstrates how you can use Kentik’s Cloud Performance Meshes to monitor performance between different regions and availability zones of any single (intra-cloud) or multi-cloud (inter-cloud) network continuously. Learn how you can catch network performance issues before they impact your applications and end users.

    Watch this webinar replay (originally broadcast January 27, 2021) to learn:

    * Why testing performance between regions and availability zones of cloud providers is critical
    * How continuous testing enables you to catch issues before your customers experience them
    * How you can customize Kentik’s free Cloud Mesh presets to suit your specific needs
    * How to start with visualizing performance of a cloud as a whole and then dig into a specific node or link that is causing problems
    * How to create custom dashboards that incorporate both real network flow and synthetic network tests
  • Five Steps to Network Observability Nirvana Recorded: Jan 27 2021 55 mins
    Christoph Pfister, Chief Product Officer for Kentik
    Join Kentik’s chief product officer, Christoph Pfister, for this lively deep-dive into enterprise network challenges and the must-haves for network observability—featuring live, in-product demonstrations by Kentik product experts Anil Murty and Dan Rohan.

    Watch this deep-dive into the network challenges enterprises at the intersection of mass cloud adoption, web-scale business, and distributed workforces face, and see why observability matters. Drawing from real-world use cases and demonstrated with aggregated, anonymized data in the Kentik Network Observability Cloud, Christoph and co-hosts cover:

  • Test autonomously and continuously, because every second (literally) matters! Recorded: Dec 2 2020 51 mins
    Anil Murty, Director of Product Management for Kentik
    Learn more about Kentik’s unique approach to synthetic testing, which combines network traffic data and testing analytics into a single platform. Kentik product expert, Anil Murty, gives a hands-on demonstration of how quick and easy Kentik makes it to set up these sophisticated synthetic tests.

    With digital transformations fully underway, networks are more critical than ever and orders of magnitude more complex. Synthetic testing is becoming a common technique used by service providers and digital enterprises alike to measure performance of CDNs, ASNs and OTT services as well as DNS and HTTP services, to ensure the best digital experience for their subscribers and SaaS users.

    Kentik’s unique approach to synthetic testing leverages real network traffic data to ease the operational burden of setting up and maintaining synthetic tests. And with continuous testing, give your operations teams immediate visibility into the network’s performance for time-critical applications.

    Jim Meehan, Head of Product Markting, Kentik
    From physical to virtual to cloud (and now multicloud) infrastructures, networks are getting more diverse and challenging to manage. Humans and manual processes can no longer keep pace with network innovation, evolution, complexity and change.

    Enter AIOps. To keep up with the ever-growing amounts of data from different sources, service providers are relying more and more on AIOps to quickly identify, prevent and resolve potential outages and other network issues.

    Attend this webinar and learn how automation, AI and ML are all playing significant roles in these four key areas:

    • 5G
    • Edge Networking
    • Subscriber Analytics
    • Diversity in OTT

  • The New NetFlow: A 20-Year-Old Secret for Better Network Management Recorded: Sep 23 2019 59 mins
    Jim Meehan, Head of Product Markting, Kentik
    It’s been more than 20 years since Cisco first introduced NetFlow as a scalable way to track network activity without collecting raw packets.

    To this day, network operators who use NetFlow and other types of flow data for network management still report the benefits, which include a lightweight monitoring footprint, faster troubleshooting, more effective planning, and automated security.

    However, when any technology survives for two decades, it raises the question: Is NetFlow outdated? Are there other data sources and technologies that are newer, faster, and more detailed for achieving network visibility?

    In this web seminar replay (originally broadcast September 17, 2019) Jim Meehan, head of Product Marketing at Kentik, discusses:

    • What’s new with NetFlow?
    • Why is NetFlow more useful than ever before?
    • What are the new native fields in NetFlow that extend visibility to/from firewalls, load balancers, and MPLS?
    • And how can you achieve enrichment by adding data that’s not within flow records?

    Additionally, Meehan advises on why NetFlow is better than ever and remains an invaluable source of truth for network operators seeking immediate answers to network questions.

  • Five Cloud Deployment Mistakes that Will Cost You Recorded: Feb 13 2019 34 mins
    Jim Meehan, Director of Product Marketing
    With physical network infrastructure moving to the cloud, it’s easy to think that networks are instantly faster, more reliable, limitless, and cheap. However, the reality is that cloud technology can be complex, especially when it comes to networking. Combined with the rapid pace of deployment and lack of visibility into how cloud resources are being utilized, it’s easy to make costly mistakes.

    Please Join Jim Meehan, Kentik Product Marketing Director, to discuss five network-related cloud deployment mistakes that you might not be aware of, but can negate the cloud benefits that you’re hoping to achieve.
    Mistake #1 - Duplicate services and unknown dependencies
    Mistake #2 - Traffic or request hair-pinning
    Mistake #3 - Unnecessary inter-region traffic
    Mistake #4 - Missing compression
    Mistake #5 - Internet traffic delivery

    In this webinar, we will also advise how to avoid these top cloud deployment mistakes with pervasive visibility.
