Cariden Further Aligns Network Engineering to Business Goals New flow collection and analysis sets the standard for business visibility

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cariden Technologies, the leading supplier of network visibility and traffic control solutions, today announced new products and services in its MATE portfolio designed to extract accurate business-relevant information more quickly and easily.

MATE Collector's new Flow Interface provides the ability to collect and analyze NetFlow, S-Flow and J-Flow data to determine the cost of traffic flows and monitor their use of network resources. This includes being able to analyze peering traffic compliance to agreements and calculate bit-mile costs for that and other services, thus providing operations staff the ability to meet their obligations for transparency to the commercial side of their business. The new functionality also provides the most accurate way of collecting a traffic matrix for capacity planning, allowing even greater accuracy and lower cost of ownership at a time when efficiency of resource allocation is essential for business competitiveness.  

Cariden's approach differs from existing NetFlow collectors in three key ways:

  • Fully integrated with MATE, the industry's leading network planning and simulation tool, making data collection and analysis easy
  • Enhanced accuracy of the collected flow data is achieved by ensuring results match existing traffic counter data and adjusting the final matrix accordingly
  • Much higher scalability than existing solutions, being able to instrument an entire network at the fraction of the current cost

Frank Hellemink, VP of Network Engineering of Kabel Deutschland, said, "As Germany's largest cable operator, service quality is paramount for our customers; any network congestion will hurt customer satisfaction so we are always looking for ways to increase the control and predictability we have. Cariden's solution gives us the flow visibility we want and provides greater accuracy in our traffic matrix measurement. This fully integrated approach makes understanding and planning changes to our network straightforward."

Cariden also announced additional features such as allowing for intuitive modeling of the impact to the network when peering connections change due to outages, as well as other new features for MATE Live, MATE Design and MATE Collector. The new version is Release 5.3 and all products are available now.

"Business visibility to the network is a must in today's hypercompetitive environment," said Sarah Wallace, Analyst at Heavy Reading. "Successful solutions need to combine discovery and collection with the network and business model. Taking advantage of the technology and expertise a company like Cariden brings to the table provides operators with reliable results and enables better decision making."
