Network operations teams can no longer ignore the application layer. Application experience can make or
break a digital enterprise, and today most enterprises are digital. To deliver optimal performance, network
operations tools must be application-aware. However, application-awareness in the network and security tool
layer is expensive and difficult to scale. Enterprises can mitigate these challenges with a network visibility
architecture that includes application-aware network packet brokers (NPBs).
EMA recommends that today’s network operations teams modernize their approach with full application
visibility. EMA research has found that network teams are increasingly focused on directly addressing security
risk reduction, service quality, end-user experience, and application performance. All of these new network
operations benchmarks will require deeper application-level visibility. For instance, a network team focused
on service quality will want to take a top-down approach to perfo
Many companies that need to deliver content online at scale use Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to improve performance. However,
even with a reliable CDN, there can be issues with service quality in different regions, insufficient capacity during peak periods, and lack of
resiliency and diversification. To address these concerns, some companies distribute their delivery load across more than one CDN, a concept
often called a multi-CDN implementation. In this paper, we’ll explore frequently-asked questions and best practices for implementing
multi-CDN workflows based on extensive experience.
VoIP’s extreme sensitivity to delay and packet loss compared to other network applications
such as web and e-mail services, presents a real challenge. A basic understanding of VoIP traffic
and of the quality metrics provided by VoIP monitoring tools will help keep your network
running smoothly. Follow our 10 VoIP best practices to ensure quality service for your network.
Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) is a major breakthrough in network function virtualization (NFV). When
asked where they have deployed NFV in production networks, communication service providers (CSPs) consistently name vEPC as one of the top answers. Why is that?
In order to maximize their processing capacity, CSPs virtualize a subset of their network applications, including
mobile edge computing (MEC), base stations (small/macro
cells) and the mobile core, because these systems use a
The mobile packet core builds the foundation of the core
network on which mobile CSPs offer IP-based services to
their customers. Implementing vEPC solutions can help
CSPs obtain the scale necessary to accommodate growing
numbers of subscribers and large amounts of traffic or
connections while controlling costs and improving on quality of experience (QoE). In the past, evolved packet core
(EPC) solutions were deployed on purpose-built hardware.
NFV enables operators to deploy EPC c
