Integration with Cisco UCS Express Platform
Optimizing the branch network and IT footprint is a key focus of reducing IT complexity today. The Cisco® Integrated Services Router Generation 2 (ISR G2) has traditionally helped in consolidating the network infrastructure to lower the total cost of ownership for network infrastructure at the branch. The Cisco Unified Computing System™ Express platform (UCS Express) enhances the capabilities of the Cisco ISR G2 by bringing service and application virtualization to the ISR G2 platform. This allows the consolidation of all branch networking and application services into a single device with remote management capabilities, which further reduces the total cost of ownership, and provides the flexibility to grow applications with the needs of the branch. The Cisco UCS Express service platform, with its own dedicated processor, hard disk, network interfaces, and memory, operating independently of the host router resources, provides the ideal platform to power the nGenius Integrated Agent.
The nGenius Integrated Agent for Cisco UCS Express
The nGenius Integrated Agent for Cisco UCS Express provides the same proven functionality of a hardware-based probe in a cost-optimized, software-based form factor.
The nGenius Integrated Agent for Cisco UCS Express can be deployed within Cisco 2900 and 3900 Series ISR G2 with Cisco Service Ready Engine (SRE) modules. By leveraging Cisco UCS Express to integrate award-winning nGenius virtualized probe technology from NetScout into the Cisco ISR G2; service visibility and real-time user experience monitoring is cost-effectively extended to the branch environment. The nGenius Integrated Agent for Cisco UCS Express maintains always-on visibility into WAN and LAN traffic from the branch office to assure the user experience and optimize service delivery, as well as delivering real-time application and network performance information into the nGenius Service Assurance Solution for an end-to-end view of the global network.
