Prove and Improve Your Performance...
Will increasing bandwidth between sites cut latency in half?
What happens when remote users all access the VPN at once?
Are service providers meeting agreed upon SLAs?
The quality of the underlying corporate network determines how well business operations, services, and applications all perform. Corporate LANs, WANs, VPNs, WLANs, Web, and cloud-based services must all be architected from the ground up to minimize latency, ensure rapid transaction times, and maintain high availability.
With ROI and operational excellence at stake, networks architects can't afford to rely on vendor data sheets in designing networks. They must proactively ensure performance from the outset by:
- Simulating challenging real-world conditions
- Previewing the impact of turning up sites and applications
- Assessing ongoing performance and scalability
- Benchmarking security and resilience in the face of attacks
