This week, I invited Chris Cullan, product marketing manager, business
services solutions at InfoVista to discuss his “grumpy old man syndrome (GOMS).”
Chris will share how Cisco and InfoVista are working together to solve GOMS by giving communications service providers (CSPs) and their enterprise customers the ability to bridge the application – user – business gap. Specifically, Cisco and InfoVista can help CSPs and customers detect and apply QoS to over 1400 applications, including bit-torrent, p2p apps, Netflix, Youtube and about 1400 others – without probes and at a hardware cost up to 30% lower than standalone appliances. Cisco also produces monthly updates to application signatures that can be implemented without interruption to the network.
Take it away, Chris!
Thanks, Bob. I’m not really that grumpy. I’m Canadian, after all.
One thing really annoys me…okay, many things really annoy me, and the number seems to increase as I get older. I call it “grumpy old man syndrome”. My wife just calls it painful. But for this audience, the one thing I am referring to is “dumb pipes”. I am continually frustrated by the industry’s willingness to down-play its core value.
