Why RRM Will Always Be Sub-Optimal

Radio Resource Management (RRM) is a feature that automates access point (AP) power and channel configuration. Most enterprise and mid-market Wi-Fi infrastructure providers have this feature, and Wi-Fi engineers are divided on whether or not RRM is beneficial and/or trustworthy, given the extremely diverse range of deployment models and RF environments. In today's market, network stability, dependability, and low TCO are paramount. This presentation takes a comprehensive look at RRM, providing attendees with both immediately useful and longer-term reference information.

Join NetScout and Devin Akin as we deep-dive on this controversial topic.

  • Live Demo of OptiView XG Aug 15 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Tony Fortunato, Senior Network Performance Specialist with The Technology Firm
    Troubleshooting performance problems in today’s networks is only getting more complex:

    • Growth of 10G links with limited visibility
    • Increasing demands on wireless networks
    • Complex infrastructure with outdated documentation

    Last thing you need are hard-to-use tools that are complex in themselves or require extensive training before you can effectively use them.

    Please join us for a free webinar where Tony Fortunato will talk about these issues and present a live demo of the OptiView® XG Network Analysis Tablet. In this session Tony will spend some extra time covering various monitoring tips and tricks:

    Learn how to tune ping for your specific purpose. If ping is blocked, Tony will show you how to use specific techniques for your monitoring needs. Get introduced to port monitoring and application level testing. Tony will also use protocol analysis to show you how these techniques work and what to look out for.

    XG expedites network performance problem solving by automating root cause analysis and providing guided troubleshooting to address problem areas - anywhere on the network – wired or wireless.
  • Creating Unified Visibility Plane Aug 9 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Erik Hjelmstad, Product Manager, NETSCOUT, and Bill Pifer, Senior Sales Engineer, NETSCOUT
    Network monitoring is essential for network, application and security assurance for the modern government agency. However, providing visibility across a monitoring network to an extensive number of diverse tools and appliances that all need access to the same information, all of the time, can be daunting and nearly impossible. Creating a Unified Visibility Plane enables Network and Security Administrators to separate their monitoring traffic from their live network to maximize network uptime while also ensuring that all of their monitoring appliances get the information they need.

    This webinar will discuss proven strategies and key tactics to create a Unified Visibility Plane. You will learn about:

    • Deploying Taps and Bypass devices to keep your Network separate from your Visibility Plane
    • Ways to improve the performance of all of your deployed network, application and security monitoring appliances
    • Adding components to your Visibility Plane to extend your visibility without disrupting your network
    • Impacts and benefits of deploying NETSCOUT Packet Flow Switches throughout your network to create a Unified Visibility Plane
  • Infrastructure Performance Management Jul 26 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Zach Belcher, Product Manager, NETSCOUT, and Tory Blaha, Senior Sales Engineer, NETSCOUT
    Managing and monitoring the health of devices within an infrastructure has traditionally been done by disparate, third-party tools. With nGeniusPULSE 2.0, government customers can cost-effectively leverage one platform to quickly and accurately identify the root cause of issues impacting network and application performance. nGeniusPULSE 2.0 combines active tests with monitoring of infrastructure and server health to identify current and potential connectivity and performance problems.

    This webinar will address how Infrastructure Performance Management capabilities can be seamlessly added to your wire data approach to provide the most complete and in-depth view of the health of the services and the infrastructure delivering them. You will learn how:

    • nGeniusONE’s service-centric approach can extend to monitor the availability and health of the infrastructure
    • nGeniusPULSE helps you ensure that on-premises equipment is functioning properly and applications are meeting expected service levels whether they are in private, public or hybrid clouds
    • nGeniusPULSE helps users to complete their root-cause analysis more quickly and effectively, within the nGeniusONE environment by collecting heath information from network equipment, log files, and servers
  • Solving UC&C quality issues in Contact Centers Jul 25 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ray Krug, Enterprise Solutions Engineer, NETSCOUT
    Delivering high quality services in your Contact Center is critical to your long term success. They are often the first touch your customers and partners have with your organization and enable your customers to spend more time, and of course, more money with your business.

    This session explores how NETSCOUT users have solved key UC&C service issues in their contact centers, reducing MTTR, and finger pointing across IT functions, so that effective communications aren’t hampered by poor call quality, excessive call waiting times or application availability.
  • Spectrum Analysis Essentials Recorded: Jul 20 2017 59 mins
    Devin Akin, CEO, Divergent Dynamics
    When designing Wi-Fi networks, it’s important to have an in-depth understanding of the RF environment, both before and during use of the network. Without proper planning, discovery, monitoring, and remediation, the large number and variety of RF interference sources and client device types may wreck even a perfectly architected Wi-Fi infrastructure.

    It pays to understand how various devices and technologies negatively impact the ISM and UNII bands and how the proper tools can help prevent low performance and poor user experience. Deploying high-performance networks starts with a detailed look at your environment’s RF spectrum, and there’s no shortcut to success.

    Attend this webinar to understand the tools and process required to help prevent low performance and poor user experience.

    Devin Akin, CEO, Divergent Dynamics
    We’re now half way through the sales cycle of 802.11ac Wave-2 APs. Where are those 4x4:4 clients we were promised? Why is nobody using 160MHz channels? What about the value that MU-MIMO was supposed to deliver? So far, Wave-2 has failed to deliver on the marketed promises and will soon be replaced with the new 802.11ax technology. What is preventing customers from realizing the value of Wave-2, as marketed by AP manufacturers? Have the vendors finally been caught red-handed in their mis-marketing of a technology?  Join Devin Akin as he shares the facts about Wave-2 technology.
