VIAVI

The Challenge

Analytics of the network of an organization is very complex and definitely not popular these days. Hybrid environments make it even more complicated. Moreover, without the application and the servers connected, it becomes a self-fulfilling providence, as our networks today simply work - and still receive many blames.

We know that and have searched for years for a technology that provides us with a smart way out. The industry provided non-matching platforms, never intended to work together. Finally we found a technology that allows us to show the network, who is connected and who is communicating. All this in combination with a data platform like i. e. Splunk, can be described as the following result: We do not look for the needle in the haystack. We plug a strong magnet and let the needle come to us.

We are now in the position to provide network and security teams with the best possible data - detailed and correlated. In fact, we are about to change the game by offering a “never seen before” visibility.

VIAVI Gigaflow and Gigastor/Apex – the solutions of NetDescribe

With the Gigaflow solution and Apex/Observer, VIAVI has become the clear technology leader. Across the whole network, brought about by intelligent packet capture and extended conversation session records. Gigaflow utilises Flow, Syslog, SNMP, NBAR, IPFIX along with interrogation of the existing infrastructure devices, via API. The input of contextual information about a conversation given by a load balancer, firewall, proxy server and many more network devices. This gives highly enriched data to both Network tools and Security teams. Gigastor then provides the “evidence” via intelligent packet capture.Since 6 years VIAVI is highly recognized in the Gartner Magic Quadrant** for NMPD (Netzwerk Monitoring Performance & Diagnostics) and leads since 2018. NetDescribe supports organizations during the implementation phase of VIAVI technologies to assure top performance of your teams.
