MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the network performance and application monitoring market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes NetScout® Systems, Inc., with the Global 2010 Enabling Technology of the Year for Network Performance and Application Monitoring. In 2010, NetScout announced its Adaptive Session Intelligence (ASI) technology, a next-generation deep packet analysis engine that gives service providers and enterprises real-time visibility of application performance and end-user experience in multi-tier, multi-domain architectures.
Many current network performance monitoring solutions are incapable of monitoring the end-user experience in a complex environment such as a cloud. Vendors are also finding it difficult to cope with increasing traffic due to voice- and video-based services. In this scenario of higher complexity in IP networks, IT organizations will be hard pressed to analyze performance metrics in real-time. NetScout ASI technology will help alleviate this challenge since their next-generation deep packet analysis technology provides visibility of transactions within a given user session to increase the scale and speed of analysis in next-generation IT environments.
NetScout is a leading provider of service delivery and performance management solutions that provide enterprises, service providers, and government agencies with an end-to-end view of the services and applications in context with the user experience. The NetScout nGenius® Service Assurance solution incorporates NetScout technology with a packet-level network analysis and data mining technology when NetScout acquired Network General in 2007.
"NetScout plans to roll out ASI technology across all its nGenius modules, which will equip customers for new architectures and technologies that require a more comprehensive view of the end-user experience in real time," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Olga Yashkova. "Using deep-packet technology, NetScout ASI offers synchronization up to millisecond granularity to better track the end user experience regardless of their location within the network."
ASI technology increases the scalability and visibility of the nGenius solution for the rapid analysis of the performance of applications and services in multi-tier, multi-domain environments. NetScout solutions assure the delivery of application and services for a broad range of industries, including finance, consumer retail, government, healthcare and service providers.
ASI technology bolsters the competitive position of NetScout in the application performance and end-user experience management market as it caters to the market's need for a solution that offers in-depth visibility of transactions within a user session, which requires a unified view of multiple network domains.
NetScout has transformed simple performance management into a broader, more meaningful service delivery management solution. Leveraging the high demand for performance management solutions, NetScout can further strengthen their relationships with enterprise and service provider customers.
"Apart from helping enterprise and service providers address the challenges in the present market, ASI technology is also designed to support 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet links in future," notes Yashkova. "With the increased deployments of cloud-based services and adoption of virtualization in the enterprise segment, the multi-domain visibility feature of this technology is expected to set the standard in the application performance market."
