ICT solutions and services provider, Dimension Data, has globally launched its Network Optimisation Assessment, a service that promises to help organisations review traffic patterns, flows, and volumes running across networks, and improve visibility.
The assessment involves technical interviews and deploying an appliance on the client’s network for a defined period of time to collect data and a variety of information about the network.
“In addition to the dramatic growth in traffic volumes on network, the type of traffic is changing, and the number of networked devices is exploding,” Dimension Data network integration national manager, Gregg Sultana, said.
According to Cisco Systems’ Global Cloud Index: Forecast and Methodology, 2010-2015 report, Cloud IP traffic is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 66 per cent in the period, account for 30 per cent of organisational datacentre traffic by 2015.
According to Sultana, the assessment is able to cover traffic discovery of all voice, video and application traffic, alongside information relating to protocols, ports, VLANs, traffic direction, and active hosts.
“Our experts in protocols, networking, data centres and applications provide a detailed report and are able to make recommendations on how the network performance can be improved. This is critical as organisations ready their networks for the emerging trends of video, mobility and particularly Cloud.”
