Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO), the worldwide leader in IT, helps companies seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the previously unconnected.

The NETSCOUT/Cisco Solution Partnership

Building on a long history of joint technology development, Cisco and NETSCOUT continue to deliver value-added solutions to provide network and service delivery assurance with Cisco Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C).

Complementary to the management capabilities of Cisco, NETSCOUT solutions bring incremental value to joint Cisco and NETSCOUT customers and build on a base of synergistic customer and channel relationships.

nGeniusONE Platform for Cisco Unified Communications and Collaboration

UC&C management capabilities are part of the nGeniusONE Enterprise Performance Management solution and have specific support for Cisco Unified Communication (UC) IP telephony and Cisco Jabber technologies often adopted for collaboration services. Once adopted, these Cisco UC&C services become critical for business and require high availability and performance.

The nGeniusONE solution, with NETSCOUT’s innovative smart data technology, is uniquely capable of providing deep, comprehensive insights into the root cause of service quality issues with Cisco’s UC&C solution. Using contextual workflows, the precise location and source of service degradation can be easily identified with the help of system-wide visibility. This ultimately reduces mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR), keeping the UC&C infrastructure operating at peak performance.
