In most cases, appliances are located within branch offices and represent points along the enterprise WAN. These appliances measure all network traffic generated through business-critical applications at the branch. There are several other appliance types collecting traffic that connect to the main network controller, including virtual appliances, which can be installed on a white box or within a data center, as well as “tele-engine” remote appliances used to reduce TCO. The controller will send information back to the appliances that dictate traffic flow to ensure optimal user experience, helping to remove service degradation including jitter, packet loss and latency errors.
|Regional/Enterprise Data Center||
In the regional DC, the central controller has a global view of the network and connects all information from the independent appliances/branch offices in real time via a centralized, highly-scalable and user-friendly viewing portal. This central controller matches information from individual appliances to predefined performance objectives or KPIs. Based on this information and predetermined objectives, the controller can manage traffic between branch offices/appliances, steering flows via the best pathways to avoid network congestion or service degradation. Additional appliances for troubleshooting purpose can be deployed in the DC and managed by the central controller for a consolidated view of application performance.
|Transport Network Elements – including optical, copper (physical) and MPLS (logical)||
Information provided by these network appliance elements allow for improving the performance and planning of the network via reporting and user data analysis. For CSPs, provide a multi-tiered reporting solution to differentiate their services and a multi-tiered self-service portal.
|L3 Routing Capabilities||No|
|Application-Aware QoS Capabilities||Yes|
|Application-Aware QoS Capabilities||
Per session-based application visibility and control, automated dynamic WAN selection, and WAN optimization. All features act together according to a single set of user-defined business performance objectives. Top priority applications receive first access to bandwidth to protect performance. Performance objectives can include dynamic WAN selection rules applied per application session.
|Description of Multi-Network Capability||
InfoVista’s Dynamic WAN Selection (DWS)provides user-centric, dynamic path selection. It automatically chooses the best WAN connection for each application flow, taking into account the end-to-end performance of all available links. Metrics including capacity, availability and quality are used to maximize end-user experience and optimize usage of all network resources.
|Built-in L4 Security Capabilities||No|
|Built-in L7 App-Aware Security Capabilities||No|
|Top Use Cases||Creating virtual networks for cloud applications (private, public, hybrid network virtualization), Virtual networks for enterprise campuses, Wide area networks for enterprises (SD-WAN) and Others|
|If Others, please specify||
Software solution set enabling CSPs to offer NFV-based vCPE solutions and Network as a Service solutions with service assurance feedback loop for SLA management for enterprise customers. Multi-tiered customer reporting for CSP customers ensuring new services will fulfill SLAs through self-service portal interface.
