Networks and applications have become increasingly complex as new rich media applications and networking technologies have been adopted. Today, organizations rely so heavily on their networked infrastructure, it is imperative to move beyond reactive management techniques of old and assume a more proactive approach by instituting scalable performance management. Medianet introduces monitoring capabilities embedded with router and switches. The IOS Performance Monitor feature enables pervasive monitoring across your infrastructure so in the event of quality issues, there is a way to identify where and what the problem is.
Cisco Prime™ Assurance Manager is a new product that takes advantage of this powerful monitoring capability to provide proactive monitoring services and better visibility into application health and end-user experience. Watch this quick video to see a quick demo of how Cisco Prime Assurance Manager unlocks the power of this rich instrumentation within Cisco routers and switches to provide network operators much improved visibility enabling faster resolution of problems in context of the health of the underlying infrastructure.
In addition to pervasive monitoring, the medianet media monitoring framework provides embedded diagnostics capability (mediatrace) and pre-deployment assessment (IPSLA video operations). You should expect future releases of Cisco Prime Assurance Manager to take advantage of this rich instrumentation and help network operators overcome the most difficult service assurance challenges at an enterprise.
