BACKGROUND
The demands on today's enterprise WAN are unrelenting: networks must support numerous complex applications while delivering performance and cost-efficiency. How can enterprises manage these challenges?

A key component of WAN optimization, these tools provide comprehensive, visual representations of network activity and trends, offering the analysis needed to take action and make informed decisions.

In this webcast IT and network managers will learn:

  • How application performance management delves into applications and validates ROI for WAN expenditures;
  • Why it's important to identify top applications, rogue applications and monitor end-to-end performance;
  • How to look at VoIP performance in the context of the entire WAN;
  • What to look for in an enterprise-grade application performance management solution; and
