The team at Broadcom is proud to be a sponsor of ONUG Fall 2021. At the event, we will be showcasing our DX NetOps network monitoring software, which is powered by next-generation silicon and telemetry from Broadcom. This one-of-a-kind integration was recently recognized as a value leader in the Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) Radar Report for Network Performance Management, 2021. In the report, Broadcom received the highest vendor strength score and was rated as having the best alert and alarm management. According to the report, “Broadcom offers one of the strongest suites of network analytics capabilities with outstanding scores for traditional network analytics functionality.”
Today, complex networks support hybrid and cloud-native business applications. In this new paradigm, the traditional methods of network monitoring are no longer sufficient to guarantee the reliability of a company’s core business services. An AI-driven approach is now required for establishing true observability and accurately understanding the customer experience business services deliver.
At the event, we’ll be hosting a panel discussion with Shamus McGillicuddy, Vice President of Research at Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). Shamus will highlight some of his recent network observability research and outline the main reasons that he placed Broadcom DX NetOps network monitoring software at the forefront of the industry in the latest Radar Report on Network Performance Management.
The panel will also include Broadcom's AIOps Chief Strategic Advisor, Tony Davis, who has a 27-year track record as an IT operations practitioner and advisor. Tony will discuss how an AI-driven NetOps platform can provide many of the real-time analytics required to implement Broadcom’s unique business service reliability methodology, which is enabling organizations to realize continuous business innovations. I’m looking forward to being the moderator of this informative session.
With over 80% of enterprises deploying SD-WAN, this technology promises to reduce costs, enhance security, and streamline application delivery. But do you really want to add another monitoring tool to your arsenal of network management systems just to monitor another technology?
Join us at this session and see how you can get a single network monitoring dashboard that offers easy, informative, one-click access to all your multi-vendor SD-WAN deployments. Through this one solution, you can get everything you need to maximize the value of your SD-WAN initiatives. Broadcom has the most comprehensive, full-stack visibility into the hottest SD-WAN vendors and technologies in the market today, including Cisco (Viptela), VMware SD-WAN by Velocloud, Cisco Meraki, Silver Peak, 128 Technology, Nokia Nuage, Juniper, HPe, Versa Networks, and so much more.
“DX NetOps outstanding overall scores for functionality, particularly for its network discovery functions, alarming and alert management, troubleshooting workflows, visualization, and reporting capabilities.”—2021 EMA Radar Report for Network Performance Management.
IT operations teams often struggle to assemble an effective network performance management (NPM) toolkit because the landscape is becoming increasingly complex every day. Historically, operations teams would use low-fidelity data collection methods based on operations, administration, and management (OAM) approaches, such as SNMP and ping, to monitor and diagnose networks in traditional data centers. With modern high-definition network telemetry data from SDN, SD-WAN, and hybrid clouds, real-time observability becomes a challenge, resulting in blind spots and higher MTTR. Given the sheer volume, velocity, and variety of network monitoring data streams, human operators can’t efficiently act on this information anymore; it’s only suitable to be consumed by machines.
As the industry-leading network performance monitoring and diagnostics (NPMD) solution, DX NetOps network monitoring software from Broadcom is positioned at the forefront of the AI-driven operations revolution. We are transparently pairing fault, performance, flow, and log data with appropriate downstream machine learning algorithms, giving operators contextual analytics within a single-pane-of-glass monitoring console. Join us in this session as we describe the journey towards modern network observability, bringing the power of embedded log analytics into the network realm. This session will reveal how our solution is defining the smart NetOps operator workflows of the future, harnessing advanced insights from our AI engine, which is available via SaaS and on-premises deployment.
“Broadcom pushes the limits of modern network monitoring, delivering features like chipset network visibility, high scalability, and one of the strongest suites of network analytics capabilities in the industry,” says Shamus McGillicuddy, VP of Research, EMA.
Join us in this session as we uncover why Broadcom is recognized as the leading network observability vendor, one that delivers a new approach to monitoring network congestion caused by dynamic and unpredictable workloads. Congestion events and microbursts are hard to detect using traditional monitoring techniques, which are mostly polling based. In this session, we will explain how Broadcom leverages gNMI (gRPC network management protocol), a highly efficient open-source technology, to stream telemetry data to the collector. We will demonstrate how, by using gNMI and Broadcom silicon, operators can easily identify network hotspots and correlate them with affected applications.
We would like to personally invite you to join Broadcom at ONUG Fall 2021, and provide you with a complimentary pass for you and your entire network operations team.
