Elevating network success with telemetry

Network Telemetry refers to both the data itself and the techniques and processes used to generate, export, collect, and consume that data for use by potentially automated management applications.  It extends beyond the classical network Operations, Administration, and Management (OAM) techniques and expects to support better flexibility, scalability, accuracy, coverage, and performance.

The Importance of the Network in Detecting Incidents in Critical Infrastructure

As we saw in my last blog the network plays a key role in defending critical infrastructure and IoT. The devices that we are connecting drive our business, enabling us to make smarter decisions and gain greater efficiency through digitization. But how do we ensure the connected devices are acting as intended?

It’s time to move away from SNMP and CLI and use Model-Driven Telemetry

Traditional features such as SNMP, CLI, and Syslog, used for collecting operational statistics from a network, have several restrictions due to the growth of the objects like IoT devices and cloud based applications. SNMP uses the pull model when retrieving data from a switch. This model cannot scale for today’s high-density platforms, and offers very […]
