Financial Services companies rely on their networks to provide market data to their customers without gaps and facilitate financial trades at high speeds. These networks require extremely low latency – far lower than most enterprises – and must be kept secure. This places great pressure on the IT teams supporting these networks to maintain these low latencies. Read the full article.
Network observability can provide significant value in the form of reduced Mean Time to Resolution, more productive employees, and more time for the IT team to spend on other projects.
Financial companies operating trading platforms have extremely high connectivity requirements for their networks; market transactions can be won or lost based on milliseconds and just a few individual data packets. Read the full article.
Network downtime can be incredibly expensive: the price tag can be up to $60 million per year for North American organizations according to IHS Research. The bottom-line impact entails both hard costs, such as lower productivity or lost sales, and softer costs such as customer or employee frustration. Read the full article.
cPacket Networks has introduced two new products designed to deliver ultra-low-latency, high-performance, high-density 100Gbps network observability in support of the latest enterprise automation, data center consolidation, and high-performance computing requirements. Read the full article.
Enterprise migration to 100Gbps network speeds continues to accelerate, with high-performance computing (HPC) data centers leading the charge. According to data from Crehan Research, 100 and 25 Gbps Ethernet speeds rose 40 percent year-over-year in 2020, with more growth expected over the next several years. Read the full article.
As data centers upgrade to 100 Gbps speeds to support the need for speed and high-performance workloads, they will need to maintain network visibility and security during and after the process to prevent bottlenecks and threats. However, many security and performance tools cannot ingest data at 100Gbps, which leaves blind spots that can be exploited by cybercriminals. Read the full article.

Troubleshooting network issues as data rates increase towards 100G is becoming more and more mission critical. In order to successfully identify and remediate service-impacting issues and lower MTTR (Mean-Time-To-Resolution), ITOps need to monitor a wide range of metrics and data sources, including packet data, in real time.

For many organizations, customer satisfaction, competitiveness, operational efficiency, and profitability all rely on secure and responsive applications. That in turn makes comprehensive network observability critical, because it’s impossible to manage, monitor, or secure what you can’t see. Read the full article.
Migration to 100Gbps network speeds in enterprise data centers continues to gain momentum. According to data from Crehan Research, 100 and 25 Gbps Ethernet speeds enjoyed a 40 percent year-over-year rise and accounted for 24 percent of total high speed NIC revenue in 2020. The Dell’Oro group predicted that 100Gbps Ethernet switches will make up over 30 percent of the data center switch ports sold over the next five years. Read the full article.
On the surface, most organizations have adjusted to the new work models brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet this shift to working from home has fundamentally changed the traffic patterns on most enterprise networks, and behind the scenes it is an extremely chaotic time for security and NetOps teams as they try to redo their policies, processes and technological solutions for this “new network normal.” Read the full article.
