ActionPacked Networks Designated by EMA as a ‘Vendor to Watch’
LiveAction Visualization and Control Solution Praised for Its Application-Aware Network Performance Management Innovation that Helps Enterprises Save Time and Money
Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) November 08, 2013
ActionPacked Networks™, the leader in application-aware network performance management (ANPM), announced that Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading industry analyst firm, has awarded and certified the company as a Vendor to Watch 2013. The EMA Vendor to Watch designation recognizes companies that provide unique customer value by solving problems that had previously gone unaddressed.
LiveAction earned the Vendor to Watch 2013 recognition for its innovative ANPM network visualization. LiveAction provides network visibility into Layers 4-7. This visualization enables network administrators to see how applications are traversing the network and provides an understanding of network connectivity, congestion, and configuration. Another distinguishing feature that LiveAction allows is to enable network administrators to make quality-of-service (QoS) policy changes to fix network performance issues affecting application delivery.
Network administrators seek deeper insight into end-to-end application performance quality to ensure media-rich applications work properly. LiveAction’s ANPM visual representation and correlation of multiple performance sources enables them to quickly deploy, monitor, analyze, troubleshoot, and fix underlying application performance issues. As a result, LiveAction helps resolve poor application quality in just minutes, compared to hours, days, or even weeks using traditional command line methods.
“Application-aware network performance management solutions are increasingly becoming essential tooling for enterprise network engineering and operations teams,” said Jim Frey, vice president of research, network management, EMA. “While LiveAction has long offered impressive and innovative visualization of network activity, the newly incorporated support for advanced Cisco® features such as AVC, PerfMon, and Mediatrace are significant extensions for recognizing and presenting performance insights into mixed networks and applications, even including information on QoS classes. Further, the solution goes beyond visibility by providing options for acting upon the operational intelligence, via features for directly adjusting network policies and configurations within the same platform.”
