Gigamon has teamed with Empirix to extend the analytical capabilities of the Empirix IntelliSight customer experience and performance management platform.

The combination of the Gigamon Visibility Fabric with the IntelliSight platform enables Empirix service providers to improve customer experience with data-intense applications such as video, voice and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. This advanced solution combines the advanced traffic intelligence of the Gigamon platform with IntelliSight to transform volumes of data into real-time understanding of user experiences, which allows service providers to raise service levels and increase profitability.

“As content grows ever richer and real-time applications proliferate, especially in the enterprise and unified communications space, they generate higher volumes of network traffic that challenges service providers to maintain and improve performance levels,” said Franco Messori, Chief Strategy Officer at Empirix. “The more traffic a service analytic solution has to process, the longer it takes to do its essential work of identifying trends that could lead to customer impacting issues. Gigamon’s data filtering and aggregation functionality, in conjunction with the ability to dynamically change configurations, directly complements IntelliSight’s capabilities. Together, the solutions enable service providers to see their networks from their customers’ perspectives, which is key to customer acquisition and retention.”

Empirix IntelliSight can ingest vast quantities of data leveraging intelligent optimization to better understand customer experience, application and performance management, as well as enhance the ability to make strategic business decisions. Its advanced data visualization options enable users of all technical abilities to quickly derive meaning from mountains of data, enabling providers to anticipate and pinpoint in real time service quality and network systems issues that affect applications and customers.

“Carriers are constantly exploring new paths to monetization, and that journey begins with having clear insight into how their own infrastructure is being utilized by their subscribers,” said Shehzad Merchant, CTO at Gigamon. “As the carrier infrastructure evolves to a converged 4G/LTE infrastructure with new applications running over that infrastructure, Gigamon’s Visibility Fabric solutions provide pertinent, correlated, de-duplicated, and highly optimized traffic feeds to Empirix’s IntelliSight platform. This provides carriers with a deeper insight into their infrastructure, which in turn results in the ability to pinpoint issues and resolve problems faster in order to meet service level agreements while also offering the ability to create new and innovative premium services.”

An effective breakpoint strategy helps deliver sharp, properly sized images, which are some of the most compelling pieces of content on a web page. Lack of such a strategy can lead to jagged images or ones that take too long to render due to excessive size, potentially reducing the overall effectiveness of web pages — and driving down the quality of the user experience. In this blog, we will explore just how significant image breakpoints are to businesses, and some important device-related factors to consider in image breakpoint decisions to deliver the optimally-sized web image every time ...

As the data generated by organizations grows, APM tools are now required to do a lot more than basic monitoring of metrics. Modern data is often raw and unstructured and requires more advanced methods of analysis. The tools must help dig deep into this data for both forensic analysis and predictive analysis. To extract more accurate and cheaper insights, modern APM tools use Big Data techniques to store, access, and analyze the multi-dimensional data ...

Performance monitoring is an old problem. As technology has advanced, we've had to evolve how we monitor applications. Initially, performance monitoring largely involved sending ICMP messages to start troubleshooting a down or slow application. Applications have gotten much more complex, so this is no longer enough. Now we need to know not just whether an application is broken, but why it broke. So APM has had to evolve over the years for us to get there. But how did this evolution take place, and what happens next? Let's find out ...

OK, I admit it. "Service modeling" is an awkward term, especially when you're trying to frame three rather controversial acronyms in the same overall place: CMDB, CMS and DDM. Nevertheless, that's exactly what we did in EMA's most recent research: <span style="font-style: italic;">Service Modeling in the Age of Cloud and Containers</span>. The goal was to establish a more holistic context for looking at the synergies and differences across all these areas ...

If you have deployed a Java application in production, you've probably encountered a situation where the application suddenly starts to take up a large amount of CPU. When this happens, application response becomes sluggish and users begin to complain about slow response. Often the solution to this problem is to restart the application and, lo and behold, the problem goes away — only to reappear a few days later. A key question then is: how to troubleshoot high CPU usage of a Java application? ...

Operations are no longer tethered tightly to a main office, as the headquarters-centric model has been retired in favor of a more decentralized enterprise structure. Rather than focus the business around a single location, enterprises are now comprised of a web of remote offices and individuals, where network connectivity has broken down the geographic barriers that in the past limited the availability of talent and resources. Key to the success of the decentralized enterprise model is a new generation of collaboration and communication tools ...
