Why successful managed service providers (MSPs) rarely see their customers (and why that’s not a bad thing)
Traditionally, in-person contact can be the deciding factor when establishing a business relationship with a new customer.
<p>Exinda’s Advanced Application Monitoring Helps Prioritize Network Resources for Business Requirements
Media Release: Melbourne 13.07.06 Exinda Networks today announced two new Application Specific Analysis Modules (ASAM) that boost the network management capabilities for Voice over IP (VoIP) and Citrix application monitoring.
Exinda’s VoIP module tracks Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based call information including phone numbers, call duration and CODEC being used. The VoIP module tracks and reports in real-time on network utilization.
Exinda’s detailed reports help to identify top callers and receivers on the network and how they consume network resources. This information is highly useful for establishing network policies and network infrastructure planning.
According to an Infonetics Research study, “User Plans for VoIP, North America, 2006” 36 percent of large businesses are already using VoIP equipment and services. For these companies, and the many joining the VoIP telecommunications revolution, Exinda’s latest Analysis Module is a “must-have” for them to manage their VoIP services in this new technical frontier.
Exinda’s Citrix tracking module allows enterprises to classify and track Citrix Published Applications within Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) sessions. In a network running over Citrix, the Exinda module monitors which applications are being used, allowing the network manager to create the most efficient acceleration policies for the network.
More than 180,000 organizations around the world use the Citrix Access Platform including all of the Fortune 100 companies and 98% of the Fortune Global 500.
“Network managers need a solution that marries application acceleration and application visibility,” says Con Nikolouzakis, founder and executive director of Exinda Networks. “Exinda is one of the few vendors that provides customers with complete control of their infrastructure, both at a technical and a corporate level. And we deliver that control at the most competitive prices with industry-leading features to offer the best value in the market.”
Beta Testers Praise Exinda’s New Modules
Mornington Peninsula Shire, a local government organization, beta tested Exinda’s new VoIP and Citrix firmware. “With the new modules, we have gained greater visibility into our key Citrix application delivery system,” said Daniel Stacey, the Shire’s information technology administration officer. “We can now focus on the top five published applications being used. Exinda eliminates the guess work. Now, we can prioritize network services to better match business requirements,” he said.
The new modules can be downloaded from the Exinda website at no cost for the 4700, 4800, 6700 or 6800 hardware platforms. The new firmware will also be available with Exinda’s next service firmware in the third quarter of 2006.
