Application performance management is essential to monitoring and maintaining the health of applications throughout the enterprise. Learn about network monitoring practices and solutions to help proactively manage the network and avoid problems.
Learn about the cable installation process and cable installation tools that contractors can use to increase efficiency and quality of a cable installation job.
Cable testing (Cat 5, Cat 6, and Cat 7 Testing) helps ensure that the installed cabling links provide the desired transmission capability to support data communication. Learn about common tests and cable testers for datacom cabling as well as standards and best practices.
Describes how to verify installation and quality of carrier Ethernet installation, e.g., when and how to administer a speed and latency test.
Learn about the common contaminants of fiber optics in today’s mission critical networks and get a detailed look at fiber testing and types of fiber testers to ensure network performance.
Cisco NetFlow is software contained in the IOS that measures statistics on traffic flows through the router. Originally, it was designed as a caching technique to improve processing speed in the presence of access lists. Later, it was realized that this statistical data has value for network monitoring and engineering. Learn more about this “network accounting technology” and it’s applications, solutions and considerations.
Network analysis offers insights into what is happening not only over the WAN, but also on the local area network (LAN) at each location. Information pertaining to traffic flows, protocols, and even individual data packets can empower the IT organization responsible for the network to keep it operating at peak performance. 
Learn about how network forensics analysis takes traditional protocol analysis to the next level by extending the duration that the analyzer can capture packets with the latest capture, storage and analysis technology.
The goal of network monitoring is to provide a depiction of operations so potential problems can be proactively avoided, and anomalies that do occur can be detected, isolated, and resolved with a minimum mean-time-to-repair.
Telco OSS systems contain data sources and elements such as Customer Information, Network Inventory, Equipment Inventory, Work Force Management, Service Offerings, Network & Service Monitoring, and others. Learn about the relationship of remote users such as field techs or call center personel and how they access and utilize these data sources and process systems.
Learn about (OTDR) technology as well as OTDR testing and types of OTDR testers used to maintain fiber infrastructure performance.
Outside plant (OSP) testing testing helps your workforce easily access results, focus on the problems and take corrective action to condition the network. Learn how Butt sets, telephone test sets, and effective workforce management are integral components of a proper outside plant testing strategy.
Learn the root causes of LAN problems and best practices, tools and training for successful LAN troubleshooting.
Today, 10 Gigabit/sec Ethernet (10 GbE) finds application over fiber optic cabling in the data center, in riser cabling, and in campus backbones, but widespread use of 10 GbE over twisted-pair copper cabling (10GBASE T) is going to take off soon. Learn more about 10G Gigabit cabling certification and standards, test parameters and more.
Learn about the benefits of deploying VoIP as well as the challenges therein and best practices for successful VoIP management and monitoring.
Get the basics on wireless network standards, wireless lan security and wireless troubleshooting and tools as part of an overall Wireless Lifecycle approach.
