Catalysts for Video

By next year, Internet video is expected to account for over 50 percent of consumer Internet traffic. With the consumerization of IT, how long will it be before you start seeing these sorts of video loads on your enterprise networks? Perhaps you are already deploying video endpoints and applications on your campus networks with devices such as Cisco TelePresence – and if you are, how are you making sure that your network is ready for video before you deploy? Do you have intelligent tools to troubleshoot video issues once you deploy?

Cisco Catalyst Switching products offer a Built-In Traffic Simulator as part of medianet to simulate video flows before you deploy. You no longer need to purchase traffic generation appliances, nor do you need to travel to various sites to setup these appliances. Check out how medianet Built-In Traffic Simulator automates network assessment in this short video.

And once you have deployed video, Cisco Catalyst switches give you the tools to automate and speed-up troubleshooting. Among other things, Mediatrace eliminates manual, hop-by-hop logging into each network node. See how Mediatrace automates and simplifies troubleshooting of network problems.

Do you think medianet Built-In Traffic Simulator and Mediatrace can ease your video deployments?
