KUALA LUMPUR, March 9 (Bernama) -- Cisco Systems Inc, has announced new innovations built to bring visibility to IT´s biggest blind spot, the wide-area network (WAN).
Currently, the company is helping IT by providing the capability to forecast WAN problems before they happen, while quickly isolating and fixing issues when they do occur.
The company has introduced two innovations, named Cisco SD-WAN vAnalytics and Cisco Meraki Insight.
Cisco SD-WAN vAnalytics will provide IT with visibility, forecasting for applications and bandwidth planning, what-if´ scenarios, and actionable recommendations.
Built as a cloud-based SaaS solution, the technology provides comprehensive data, analysis and corrective actions across the WAN, including branch offices, multicloud endpoints, and multiple service providers.
Cisco Meraki Insight helps IT administrators optimise the end user experience by providing valuable understanding into WAN and SaaS application performance, significantly reducing the time to isolate and resolve issues.
With Meraki Insight, customers can understand and troubleshoot both internal and external issues that can contribute to poor user experience for applications hosted in a remote data centre or in the cloud.
"The WAN is a vital part of the network and is one of the toughest to manage. As we bring insight into the WAN with these new innovations, we get closer to delivering end-to-end intent-based networking to help our customers eliminate downtime and save money, " said senior vice-president and general manager, Enterprise Networking at Cisco, Scott Harrell.
