NETWORK MONITORING ISSUES IN THE CLOUD: SOLVED

The cloud offers many advantages to communications service providers. But it turns network traffic monitoring into a nightmare. Especially traffic monitoring that is comprehensive across the cloud and on premises while not breaking the bank. Throw 5G networks into the mix and the challenge seems impossible.

Yet communications service providers must keep tabs on every part of their networks constantly to find and fix glitches fast. Problems like Application latency, jitter, out of order packets, faulty hardware, intrusions and much more. All at a price that makes attaining network excellence cost-effective.

DART (Data Analysis in Real Time) makes that possible. DART is holistic network performance monitoring software. DART provides complete visibility across physical, virtual, software-defined, and cloud networks.

USING SOFTWARE BASED INTELLIGENCE TO UNCOVER NETWORK PROBLEMS

Cirries’ Data Analysis in Real Time (DART) contains a Virtual Packet Broker (VPB). The VPB is a software-based, intelligent network probe that monitors all traffic, North/South, East/West and processes packets and/or forwards flow data for analysis by DART. This process allows DART to uncover problems no matter where they arise within the virtual environment, or from outside it.

The VPB is designed around a high-performance packet collection and processing engine. It incorporates both flow generation and traffic redirection features, with built-in templates to facilitate the creation of forwarding policy. The VPB collects network traffic from multiple links and applies detailed forwarding policies. It ensures accurate and timely delivery of network-wide traffic data DART and 3rd party tools such as Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems.
