AVC You in Orlando: There's nothing Mickey Mouse about AVC!

I hope everyone is getting excited to take the Journey to the Sunshine State and have packed a few sets of mouse ears. A quick blog post this week as I have already run out of puns. I'd like to encourage you all to check out our Application Visibility and Control (AVC) partners at Cisco Live Orlando! There are three that I'd love to highlight.

InfoVista will be showing off their Application Visibility Solution in the Cisco Partner Pavilion and theater, ActionPacked! Networks has a very special announcement about LiveAction and can be found in booth 201, and Plixer's Netflow Knights will highlight their full range of netflow support in booth 747 and our Partner Pavilion - and even has a rap video, or so I've been told. I can't wait to see in person what our customers think about our partners' technologies. Also, come take a look at what Cisco has hidden beneath our huge plastic ears Read More »

LiveAction handles QoS, NBAR2, and other AVC features easily and comprehensively

Bob described Cisco's perspective on the future of routing – it’s all about applications! - and ActionPacked! gave a great demo of LiveAction software. Our attendees learned how to securely:

  1. Discover and prioritize 1400+ applications in your network
  2. Re-route groups of applications based on real-time network performance
  3. Reduce bandwidth expansion costs

ActionPacked! Networks Completes Interoperability Verification and Testing of the Live Action Software!

We are excited to announce that ActionPacked! Networks successfully completed interoperability verification and testing of LiveAction for the MSI management CDN program. This makes them the first management partner to support the MSI's REST-based management interface (v3.1). This support gives LiveAction the ability to monitor and troubleshoot issues on any MSI enabled endpoint. LiveAction supports both certificate-based and username/password based authentication to MSI-enabled endpoints.

LiveAction is also a Medianet Systems Management CDN partner supporting Medianet capabilities on the network elements. With their current enhancements to support the MSI management interface, LiveAction becomes one of the first products to support Medianet capabilities on endpoints as well as the network.

This successful IVT also underlines the fact that Medianet is based on open standards and was designed from the start to be an open, interoperable architecture.
