Cisco Network Analysis Module Software - ( v. 5.1 Product Details
In today's business reality, distributed enterprises heavily rely on applications for communication, collaboration, and effective day-to-day operations. At the same time, IT is challenged with managing application delivery in an environment that is rapidly changing. The number of business applications is growing, application architectures are increasingly complex, application traffic is proliferating, and traffic patterns are difficult to predict. In addition, driven by security, regulatory, and economic considerations, enterprises are embracing data center consolidation, desktop virtualization, and network and application convergence to maximize the value of their IT investments. This demands comprehensive application and network visibility to successfully deliver disparate applications in a complex IT environment.Cisco Network Analysis Module (NAM) is a powerful network-aware performance assurance solution that delivers unparalleled visibility into application and network performance to help ensure the consistent and efficient delivery of applications and services to end users. It combines performance monitoring, traffic analysis, and advanced troubleshooting to provide a comprehensive solution that meets the performance management needs of today's dynamic, evolving enterprises. The visibility enables IT to effectively use control and optimization mechanisms such as Quality of Service (QoS), and Wide Area Application Services (WAAS), to improve application performance.The unique design of Cisco NAM combines a rich set of embedded data collection capabilities and performance analytics with a remotely accessible, web-based management console, all of which reside on a single network module or high-performance appliance. The appliance extends the reach of the NAM in places in the network either not currently served by the blades or where higher performance monitoring is essential.
