Case Studies
University of Nottingham Case Study

The University of Nottingham Expands Fluke Networks Use to Baseline and Solve Complex Issues Faster

Challenge:
Must support a wide range of proprietary and off-the-shelf applications and individual department silos can cause long delays in troubleshooting.

Results:
With Visual Performance Manager, the IT team detected, isolated and resolved performance problems with less time and effort and lessened the negative impact on the institution - reducing time to resolve complex problems from days to hours.

Cadence Bank Case Study

Visual Performance Manager Gives Regional Banking and Financial Services Company Complete Visibility Into Application and Connection Performance

Challenge:
Cadence Bank is a regional banking and financial services company operating more than 100 locations across Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. Like many companies in the financial services world, Cadence is growing through acquisition, which presents some unique challenges around network integration. Without proper visibility into these networks, the IT team struggles to effectively combine, optimize and manage network resources. In addition, with the company relying heavily on the network and key financial service applications, being able to quickly identify and remediate performance issues are key to business success. Unfortunately, without a window into key performance data, the team can’t accurately assess or manage network and application usage.

Results:
Combining the networks of previously separate companies into a single, integrated network requires a deep level of understanding about how all of the legacy hosted applications, third-party cloud-based services and users are interacting with the network. Cadence chose Visual Performance Manager (VPM) from Fluke Networks to provide network and application performance monitoring. In addition to quickly helping Cadence identify areas of overlap among applications and services, VPM allows Cadence to uncover the underlying causes of performance bottlenecks resulting from unknown or unplanned application activity. Cadence estimates that VPM will pay for itself in 6-8 months by helping identify poorly utilized or redundant broadband circuits across its branch office network, and allow them to better manage and isolate problems with key applications.

Packaging Manufacturer VPM Case Study

Fluke Networks’ Visual Performance Manager™ Ensures Network and Application Performance of Packaging Systems for Large Manufacturer

Challenge:
Filling machines and aseptic beverage packaging systems at a large manufacturer in Germany play a vital role in helping hundreds of companies worldwide bring products to market. These complex systems include heavy manufacturing equipment run by proprietary software that is all networked into backend systems that a customer and staff from the large manufacturer monitor and work with. In order to ensure the successful deployment and operation of these systems, the manufacturer must have complete insight into a customer’s network and application performance, and be able to identify issues and remediate them in real-time. If problems emerge with network performance, a stoppage or slow production cycle could occur, costing the organization both time and money.

Results:
To ensure complete insight into network and application performance, the manufacturer selected Visual Performance Manager (VPM) from Fluke Networks. This network and application performance monitoring solution allows the team to guarantee the reliability of its packaging systems to customers. If a problem does emerge, or a change on the network impacts performance, it can be investigated from a centralized dashboard with just a few clicks, and remediated in just minutes. Without this level of monitoring and performance data, the manufacturer would not be able to provide some of the most reliable packaging production systems in the world.

Shipping, Logistics, and Transportation

The MSC Home Terminal in Antwerp uses Visual TruView™ to Keep Critical Logistics and Shipping Moving

Challenge:

The primary application is based on a central database containing information about all containers and a combination of many smaller programs. Performance issues could have a serious impact on the charging and discharging of cargo from the vessels, trains and trucks.

Results:
With Visual TruView™, the IT team was able to have an independent view of overall performance which led to faster problem isolation and troubleshooting, and lessened the risk of service impacting performance related issues.
