Application Assurance Solutions

In a highly-demanding digital world where slow is the new off, delivering uninterrupted, secure, high-performance services that delight end-users before, during and after migration of workloads to the public Cloud is often the difference between success and failure.

Network Performance Management

Network performance management is vital to assuring mission-critical business service availability and performance. Any disruption can negatively impact productivity, customer satisfaction and ultimately revenue. IT teams are challenged to respond to triggers - often in the form of a user complaint that “the network is slow” - then quickly identify the source of the problem in a complex service and network environment.


In today's era of digital transformation, enterprises are under increasing pressure to innovate by delivering IP services faster, at scale and with higher quality. Further complicating matters, the extremely large number of devices connecting to the network have caused connectivity issues to multiply. In this complex environment, service degradations and outages are simply not an acceptable option.

UC&C Performance Management

Underperforming Unified Communications & Collaboration (UC&C) services, such as voice over IP (VoIP), video conferencing, SIP, telepresence, and collaboration services can erode the promised benefits of improving teamwork, increasing agility, reducing costs, and boosting business productivity.
