Fluke Networks Canada today released the iDistributed Network Analysis and Monitoring Solution, a product set that provides network operation professionals with centralized vision and troubleshooting capability of both local and remote networks from the network operations center (NOC).
According to Fluke, it allows network managers to take a proactive approach to managing the distributed enterprise, providing higher levels of service to users and reducing Mean Time To Repair (MTRR).
“Central management of branch offices is key to the distributed enterprise 45% of organizations manage their branches centrally; another 19% manage centrally and use service providers for some tasks,” said Robin Gareiss, executive vice president at Nemertes Research, an independent research firm that specializes in quantifying the business impact of technology.
“Nearly 90% of employees work away from headquarters, and maintaining their productivity requires a solid IT infrastructure and centralized tools to manage it.”
There are also significant cost savings involved. Nemertes estimates that remote troubleshooting, combined with the ability to view a problem from the NOC and drill down to find the cause, is approximately 10 times more efficient than traveling to a remote location.
The core of the new offering is the OptiView Server, which collects and correlates detailed performance information gathered from OptiView Workgroup Analyzers and OptiView WAN Analyzers placed at remote locations.
