LMTV LIVE | How to Improve Network Troubleshooting (with Keith Bromley and Bill Coon)

With Paul Offord of Advance7 hosting, Keith Bromley from Keysight Technologies (formerly Ixia) and Bill Coon from Riverbed will be talking about how to use network visibility to improve troubleshooting.

According to an Enterprise Management Associates report (Network Management Megatrends 2016), IT teams already spend around 36% of their daily efforts on reactive troubleshooting efforts. In addition, pressure can increase exponentially on IT personnel as problem resolution time increases, since it directly correlates to network and application slowness and downtime. There is a new LMTV event happening on February 21, 2018. Keith Bromley from Keysight Technologies (formerly Ixia) and Bill Coon from Riverbed will be talking about how to use network visibility to improve troubleshooting. According to an Enterprise Management Associates report (Network Management Megatrends 2016), IT teams already spend around 36% of their daily efforts on reactive troubleshooting efforts. In addition, pressure can increase exponentially on IT personnel as problem resolution time increases, since it directly correlates to network and application slowness and downtime. 

Network visibility solutions allow you to get a clearer picture (in a faster way) as to what is happening on your network. This allows you to reduce your mean time to repair (MTTR) performance.

Some key thoughts we will discuss during the event:

  • A Visibility Architecture is an end-to-end infrastructure which enables physical and virtual network, application, and security visibility
  • There are several possible ways to optimize your troubleshooting activities:
    • Insert taps between the network and monitoring tools (or network packet broker) to improve the quality of monitoring data and time to data acquisition
    • Deploy network packet brokers (NPBs) between those taps and the security and monitoring tools to optimize the data sent to the tools, like Riverbed
    • Deploy NPBs that support floating filters to further decrease the time to data acquisition
    • Use NPBs that support adaptive monitoring, which speeds up the data filter deployment process by using automation to replace manual intervention
    • Implement proactive troubleshooting with application intelligence to create a macroscopic troubleshooting approach that reduces fault localization time
  • Network analysis tools, like those from Riverbed, can provide capabilities to help you improve your network operations. Riverbed's SteelCentral application performance monitoring solution let’s you identify network problems to optimize your network.
  • A visibility architecture typically yields immediate benefits such as the following:  eliminating blind spots, improving data flow to security tools, and maximizing network and tool availability
  • A visibility architecture typically yields immediate benefits such as the following:  eliminating blind spots, reducing costs while maximizing ROI, and simplifying data control

Join us for the second of several discussions to learn how to unleash the power of network visibility.

LMTV LIVE | How to Improve Network Performance (with Keith Bromley and Jim Sullivan)

Keith Bromley from Keysight Technologies (formerly Ixia) and Jim Sullivan from ExtraHop will be talking about how to use network visibility to improve network performance. In short, network visibility is what enables you to quickly isolate and resolve performance issues; ultimately ensuring the best possible end-user experience.

Since tactical data loses 70% of its value after 30 minutes, the speed and accuracy of data analysis is critical. A proper visibility architecture addresses the strategic end-to-end monitoring goals of the network, whether they are physical, virtual, out-of-band, or inline security visibility.

LMTV LIVE | Wireshark Week (with Brad Reinboldt and Tony Fortunato)



Wireshark_email_header_17_200_3This week Tim, Tony and Denny spoke with an old friend, Brad Reinboldt, Senior Solutions Manager from Viavi Solutions, about their upcoming free education webinar series Wireshark Week.

We looked at the challenges of getting started with Wireshark, uncover quick tips from Tony that make troubleshooting in Wireshark easier, and talk about other tools that work alongside Wireshark to simplify root-cause analysis. Additionally, Brad went into detail on the Wireshark web sessions offered from November 6-11.

LMTV LIVE | General Data Protection Regulations

Join Tim, Tony October 4th when we’ll speak with Steve Brown, Director of Solutions Marketing, at Viavi Solutions about upcoming EU privacy and security regulations that will any organization that does business  in Europe. We’ll outline the impact of EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) regulations on  network and security teams, clarify the global nature of GDPR regulations, and outline solutions and strategies for ensuring compliance.

When GDPR goes into effect on May 28, 2018, any organization that operates in, or does business in the EU will have just 72 hours to report detected breaches concerning personal information to relevant authorities and impacted parties. In addition to the LMTV discussion, resources can be found at: www.viavisolutions.com/gdpr
