In addition, specialized collectors are available to gather call detail records (CDRs) from call control servers, session border controllers and end point data metrics from Microsoft® Lync™ and IBM® Sametime® deployments for comprehensive Unified Communications (UC) service monitoring.
NetScout offers a comprehensive family of intelligent data sources that provide packet flow-based visibility for all applications and services that flow across global networks.
All NetScout intelligent data sources leverage Adaptive Session Intelligence™ (ASI) technology developed by NetScout. ASI technology dynamically tracks, captures and analyzes complex service delivery transactions across multi-domain IP networks allowing comprehensive real-time analysis of the performance of applications and services across physical and virtual environments. ASI technology dramatically increases the speed of detecting and troubleshooting service delivery problems across distributed service delivery architectures such as cloud-based services, enterprise data centers and branch and remote offices. nGenius Intelligent Data Sources derive traffic intelligence regardless of interface type--IP, NetFlow, etc. ASI provides a highly scalable technology foundation that feeds into the nGenius Service Assurance Solution and enables consistent metrics across a broad range of interfaces and data sources.
