Wi-Fi Optimization KPIs Explained

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for WLAN deployments can provide insight into how well the WLAN is performing. They allow engineers to quickly assess whether a network is operating at or near capacity and within industry best practices. But which KPIs are most valuable and what values for each one can be considered good? In this webinar, industry expert Devin Akin will discuss good, average, and bad values of each KPI and will explain how to assess each value.

  • Empowering Your Network to Stop DDoS Attacks Sep 19 2019 3:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Scott Iekel-Johnson, Director of Product Management, DDoS Protection at NETSCOUT
    The goal to network protection is pretty simple. We must get ahead of the threats and protect our investments. Instead we continue to play catchup to attackers. While this goal is far from being achieved, we must abandon the idea that discreet solutions can solve multi-vectored threats. No single technology can solve this type of problem by itself. This goes for DDoS attacks like any other sophisticated threat.


    Join NETSCOUT as we discuss how smarter visibility can drives a smarter DDoS protection strategy. As we evolve our Arbor platforms for next generation of DDoS attacks, we are helping Service Providers and Enterprises change their approach to DDoS mitigation.


    In this webinar you will learn how to:

    • Detect attacks by combining smart analytics with best-in-class data

    • Defend from attacks by orchestrating multiple network protections simultaneously

    • Monitor comprehensive protection through a single interface


    With almost 20 years of expertise, the Arbor platforms have unparalleled visibility and knowledge on network-based attacks. Register for this webcast to listen how The Arbor platforms once again raise the bar on network visibility and DDoS protection.

  • Cybercrime’s Innovation Machine Recorded: Aug 6 2019 25 mins
    Hardik Modi, Senior Director, Threat Intelligence, NETSCOUT & Jessica Gulick, CEO, Katzcy & VP, Women's Society of Cyberjutsu
    It’s hard to express the scale of today’s cyber threat landscape, let alone its global impact. We can tell you that there were nearly four million DDoS attacks around the world in the last six months, and that attack frequency grew by 39 percent. Or that the NETSCOUT ASERT team saw 20,000 unique samples per month from just one family of IoT malware. Or even that it can take only five days from the discovery of a new attack vector to the availability of tools for the script-kiddie designed to exploit that vulnerability.

    These numbers, while startling, don’t fully convey the impact of that steady drumbeat of new threats. Cybercrime has entered the mainstream of our culture to an unprecedented extent, and it is here to stay.

    Join this video interview live from Las Vegas during Black Hat to learn more about:
    - The big trends in DDoS
    - New attack vectors found in the past six months and what this means for device and software security

  • A New Way to Solve Wi-Fi Problems Recorded: May 21 2019 42 mins
    John Anderson, NETSCOUT Product Manager
    IT has traditionally measured and reported on Wi-Fi KPI’s, then tried to determine if the alert really reflects a problem, and then escalated to a Wi-Fi expert. But, does the alert really mean there is a problem affecting users? And, is it actually a Wi-Fi problem or something else in the network?
    Join NETSCOUT’s Jason Chaffee as he discusses a new way to monitor Wi-Fi using nGeniusPULSE to:
    •DETECT – based on user experience of apps and services
    •ISOLATE – isolate fault to Wi-Fi link, network, server, or app. If Wi-Fi, isolate to access point

  • Scaling security at the Internet edge with stateless technology Recorded: Feb 20 2019 32 mins
    Tom Bienkowski – NETSCOUT Arbor, Director, Product Marketing
    As the scale of all types of attacks continues to increase, traditional stateful perimeter security devices like firewalls often strain to keep up. Adding stateless technology between the firewall and the Internet router, armed with advanced reputation and threat intelligence data, can decrease the heavy load on your existing perimeter defenses, protect them from state exhaustion attacks, and even provide blocking of outbound threats (like bots communicating with C&C). This webinar will explore the realm of stateless technology and the Internet edge, with best practices, lessons learned, and key deployment strategies that will prepare attendees for a future of increasing and diverse attacks.

    During this webinar we will talk more about:

    - Understand the limitations of existing perimeter security solutions because of their stateful nature

    - See how stateless technology can protect you from inbound attacks (like DDOS), more efficiently block inbound IoCs and outbound threats (communications with suspicious destinations based on reputation)

    - Learn how stateful and stateless technologies can work together the make a more secure Internet edge

    - Arm yourself with protection against Internet-scale attacks

    - Answers to audience questions during live Q&A​

  • State of the Cloud in the Enterprise Recorded: Feb 4 2019 28 mins
    Dr. Mazin Yousif, Editor IEEE Cloud Computing Magazine
    Cloud computing has become the de-facto hosting platform for all types of applications, social innovations and use cases such as Big Data, the Internet of Things, smart mobility and social networking – basically it is the new normal. This is true everywhere including all industry sectors and companies in all sizes.

    Bringing new technology into the market always comes with many challenges. This is no different for cloud computing, even though its adoption in the market has been very fast. I usually bucket cloud adoption challenges in three categories, namely: migration, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and Data handling. According to surveys by Netscout and RightScale published in 2018, a cloud users leverage on average around 5 clouds; hybrid and multi-clouds are likely the future; security, managing cost and lack of skilled resources rank on the top challenges; & as expected there are still migration challenges.

    In this talk, I will provide my views on the state of cloud computing in the enterprise, talk about the challenges and talk about the typical role of the CIO to deal with digital transformation challenges.

    Key Take away:

    -Enterprises uses many cloud services at any one time
    -Hybrid cloud and multi-clouds seem to be the way forward
    -Cloud challenges in the Enterprises vary based on the size of the enterprise and where they are in the cloud adoption journey.
    -The central IT organization has morphed its role as cloud adoption increases
