How to Compare and Evaluate Network Management Tools

To obtain complete network management and troubleshooting, it’s important to evaluate solutions that address BOTH usage and performance. Many organizations have a variety of tools because there isn’t a single solution that does everything. And that’s why it’s important to know how to evaluate the functions you have, identify gaps, then select the best tool(s) to meet your needs.

  • Introducing the World’s first Smart Network Connectivity Tester Jan 24 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Lisa Schwartz, Senior Product Marketing Manager
    For organizations challenged by the rapid growth of network-connected devices, this next-generation test tool enables installers and IT professionals to accelerate deployments and speed problem identification, improving the efficiency and effectiveness of these teams and the overall project at hand. Digital transformation has led to an exponential growth of IP-connected devices, including wireless access points, intelligent sensors, digital lighting, access controls, etc., many of which also rely on the enterprise network for power. This is putting pressure on the access network infrastructure, requiring major updates including new, high-powered power over Ethernet (PoE) across many industry segments.

    Using LinkRunner™ G2 with its wired Ethernet capabilities for both copper and fiber, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support and the ability to use vendor-specific Android based apps means users can now execute their entire workflow on a single device. LinkRunner's unique Android™ OS* expands the functionality of the tester such that users can receive a trouble ticket, review documentation, test loaded PoE and network services, automatically document the results, and configure and triage connected devices.

    Spend a little time in your day with us to learn more about this breakthrough in network testing technology and how it can help your organization conquer the demands of deployment, configuration, troubleshooting and collaboration.

  • New Requirements for Application Assurance in Cloud Environments Jan 17 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Adelaide O’Brien, Research Director, Government Digital Transformation Strategies, IDC; Russ Currie, VP, Strategy, NETSCOUT
    3rd Platform technologies coupled with the Digital Transformation (DX) have triggered a shift in enterprise network management toward pervasive instrumentation as an enabler of better network visibility, application assurance, and security assurance. As the adoption of 3rd Platform solutions continues to drive a greater need for capacity, bandwidth, performance, and availability, Cloud technology is fundamentally changing the characteristics of resource consumption and traffic generation within network operations.

    Today, enterprise network management includes many networked resources beyond the traditional view and control of enterprise IT departments. IT priorities should include network visibility, assurance, and risk management solutions that provide real-time actionable intelligence to ensure service assurance continuity for voice, video, and data services over physical, virtual, and hybrid cloud networks.

    In this webinar, IDC and NETSCOUT will discuss:

    • The role of the Cloud Services Delivery Model
    • Research and findings regarding growth and value of Cloud Demand and Use Cases
    • Meeting the challenges of making IT operations more responsive, efficient and effective
    • Non-disruptive infrastructure transformation
    • Planning and preparing for future migration of workloads to the Cloud
    • Pervasive visibility into public, private and hybrid cloud environments
  • Resolviendo problemas en WiFi 802.11ac: Hazlo rápido y simple Jan 16 2018 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    David Rodriguez Laurentie
    Con el avance de la tecnología, el incremento en las tasas de transferencia y el mantenimiento de redes WiFi puede ser complicado. Cuando comenzamos con afirmaciones vagas de los usuarios como “la WiFi va lenta” o “no me puedo conectar” identificar la causa raíz que provoca su malestar puede ser costoso y consumir mucho tiempo.

    Examinaremos métodos básicos de atención de problemas usando lo último en equipos de prueba para reducir tiempo y coste en la detección y resolución de los fallos. Esto incluye nuevas mejoras en el flujo de trabajo para equipos de trabajo distribuidos entre diferentes ubicaciones.

    Acompáñenos en esta sesión para conocer sobre las mejores prácticas para mantenimiento de redes inalámbricas.

  • Enhancing Predictive Modeling & RF Site Survey Accuracy Recorded: Nov 30 2017 60 mins
    Devin Akin, CEO, Divergent Dynamics
    Predictive Modeling of Wi-Fi networks is an efficient and cost-effective way to determine ideal quantity, placement, and configuration of APs for optimal performance, security, and compliance. The accuracy of predictive modeling is determined both by the quality of the predictive modeling tool and by the accuracy of the data entered into the tool by the user. There is an industry standard process by which to gather accurate RF-loss-object data to ensure optimal output accuracy of predictive modeling software, such as AirMagnet’s Planner. The data gathering process involves measurement of wall, door, and object loss within facilities, but there’s a bit more to the process than one might initially expect, including dB offsets for low-capability devices.

    Attend this webinar to understand the tools and processes required to optimize your predictive models for maximum accuracy.

    Devin Akin is the founder of Divergent Dynamics, a Wi-Fi Systems Integrator, Value-Added Reseller (VAR), and Training organization. Akin has over 20 years in IT, with 15 years in WLAN specifically, and was recently named to the TWW Top 100 Wireless Technology Experts list for 2014.
