    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    However, when any technology survives for two decades, it raises the question: Is NetFlow outdated?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.
