ManageEngine’s Netflow Analyzer supports performance monitor and mediatrace

June 7, 2012 at 12:00 pm PST

Early this year, ManageEngine successfully completed their second interoperability verification and testing (IVT) with medianet for its product NetFlow Analyzer  through the medianet systems management Cisco Developer Network  (CDN) program.

ManageEngine successfully completed the medianet IVT  for NetFlow Analyzer in February 2012. NefFlow Analyzer supports the medianet features performance monitor and mediatrace.

NetFlow Analyzer leverages flow technologies to generate real-time traffic reports that help in getting visibility into the traffic patterns in the network. It provides:

  • On-demand mediatrace poll for instant monitoring
  • Threshold based alerts for key metrics
  • Highly granular reports with extensive storage options

Learn How to Simplify and Scale Your Video Deployments and Achieve Better User Experience

May 4, 2012 at 7:20 am PST

Medianet integrates a smarter network with smarter endpoints to simplify the deployment and operation of various media and applications, and to enhance the quality of experience. You can find all you need to deploy medianet capabilities in the Medianet Knowledge Base, including a deployment guide which guides you step by step on how to deploy and use medianet capabilities.

But if you want to get your hands dirty and learn by doing we will have a fun lab (both for the student and proctors) in the next Cisco Live in San Diego. The lab is based on real physical equipment (routers, switches, MCUs, video surveillance cameras, etc.), video applications (Jabber for Windows, CP-9971 phones, Video Surveillance, WebEx and Digital Signage) and Network Management. You will  get a chance to see a real working video enabled branch that they control and get an introduction to the many medianet features like performance monitor, mediatrace, IPSLA Video Operations, Auto Smart Ports, QoS, and now Media Services Interface (MSI), Flow Metadata and Media Services Proxy (MSP)!

LiveAction Now Supports Mediatrace for Dynamic Troubleshooting of Video and Voice Applications

April 12, 2012 at 12:30 pm PST

A few weeks ago, ActionPacked! Networks successfully completed their second interoperability verification and testing (IVT) with medianet  for its product LiveAction through the medianet systems management Cisco Developer Network  (CDN) program.  

LiveAction was one of the first medianet partners to successfully complete the medianet IVT in April 2011 when it provided support for the medianet features performance monitor as well as IPSLA Video Operations. In this latest IVT, the new version of LiveAction introduced support for the medianet mediatrace feature.

Validate your network configuration with IPSLA VO, our built-in traffic simulator

March 12, 2012 at 1:18 pm PST

In our last blog, we talked about mediatrace which is one of the medianet media monitoring features. In this blog, let’s talk about IPSLA video operations (VO), another media monitoring feature.

IPSLA VO generates realistic synthetic traffic similar with the same characteristics of real media traffic (e.g. burstiness, packet size, packet rate, etc.). Without involving the endpoints, IT operators can generate traffic and observe its impact on the network and other existing applications. This makes IPSLA VO a powerful tool to validate network configurations and capacity:

Identify and locate video and voice issues in your network with mediatrace

March 7, 2012 at 1:17 pm PST

A few days ago we announced new products that now support medianet media monitoring . Media monitoring helps you to assess and measure the impact of video, voice, and data applications in the network. It gives IT operators more confidence and peace of mind to deploy and manage different video and voice applications in their network by enhancing visibility into the network and accelerating troubleshooting.

One of the features of media monitoring is mediatrace which allows IT operators to troubleshoot an issue while it occurs. Mediatrace works like a traceroute that follows a specific flow hop-by-hop collecting performance statistics end-to-end. It can be started from an endpoint with Media Services Interface or in any router or switch that supports the capability.
