Viavi Solutions announced the availability of the new Observer Platform, a solution for network performance management.

As global network traffic growth continues to defy expectations, enterprises are compelled to embrace advanced technologies to keep up, while security threats multiply in intensity and complexity. Anticipating these market trends, Viavi has redesigned the Observer Platform, including Observer GigaStor and Apex, to address IT departments’ changing demands.

For back-in-time analysis, GigaStor has been redesigned from its very foundation to provide customers with readiness for internal and external service delivery turbulence.

Apex complements GigaStor with an all-new analytics and reporting engine for total situational awareness via contextual workflows integrated into intuitive dashboards.

Key updates to the Observer Platform include:

- Custom-designed Gen3 capture card with 40 Gbps capture rate and accelerated analytics, providing the industry’s fastest access to stored packet data and analysis

- Exclusively designed, fault-tolerant custom enclosures support four years of uninterrupted, 100% duty-cycle, line-rate capture without dropping a single packet for the ultimate in transaction visibility and peace of mind

- Standard operational network, application, and unified communications workflows are automated to mirror the way IT teams approach these three most common types of issues enabling faster analysis and resolution

- All new models are tailored to customer use cases, accommodating any location, network, or data center configuration.

“More than just metadata, Viavi delivers the purity of complete forensic data at 40 Gbps wire-rate data center speeds to help ensure troubleshooting and threat intelligence information is always available,” said Douglas Roberts, VP and GM, Enterprise & Cloud Business Unit, Viavi Solutions.
