Traditionally, management software has had to approach the network as a collection of individual devices. This individual device view leads to management software that presents reports and data along device or interface lines. The applications network traversal experience is lost. While the management software could technically perform the correlation, only very few do due to the complexity required. The medianet mediatrace feature allows the operator and the management software to communicate with a set of network nodes represented by a flow. The data is consolidated and organized into a single report by the network and presented to the requestor. This allows the management system to query a set of nodes that it has not discovered, is managing or have direct contact with. Due to the built in correlation of the report mediatrace makes it trivial for the management system to do path analysis and flow analysis.

If you are wondering how medianet works in practice and how it can help you with your rich-media deployment, you will love the new Medianet 2.2 Deployment Guide. The medianet team developed this guide focusing on the 4 most common use cases among our customers deploying video:
- Traffic baselining
- Troubleshooting and fault isolation
- Network validation
- Medianet autoconfiguration for digital signage
Enterprise video is experiencing tremendous change in terms of adoption, traffic growth, business model evolution, and technology innovation.
We recently undertook an extensive study to uncover key insights about the use of business video in U.S. enterprises. The survey is part of the Cisco Internet Business Solutions Group’s Horizons program, which combines multimodal research and analysis to identify business transformation opportunities fueled by technology innovation.
Since the purpose of this study was to understand how the use of video is evolving in the enterprise, we chose to seek insight from executives at enterprises with at least 1,000 employees, from across the United States. For this study, we recruited more than 450 enterprises from more than 20 industries across the United States, including both Cisco customers and non-Cisco customers.
Because we wanted to understand both end-user and IT perspectives on business video, participants included both business executives (i.e., from non-IT functions such as sales, marketing, finance, and engineering), and IT executives.
Our research uncovered several key findings:
#1: Business Video is already widespread throughout the enterprise.
- We discovered that business video is already well entrenched in the enterprise. More than three out of four business executives said they use either one-way video or two-way video—or both—at least once a week.
- This trend is growing: more than 70 percent of respondents said they will increase their use of business video in the next two years.
#2: A majority of executives are active in both recording videos and viewing employee-created videos, and they plan to do more of both.
- More than 70 percent of corporate executives expect their use of one-way and two-way video to grow over the next two years. Currently, 34 percent of business executives record business videos on a daily basis, and 62 percent of business executives watch employee-created videos at least once a week. Read More »
