Challenges of Monitoring at 100G: The High-Speed Dilemma

The trend towards 100G adoption rates have increased, but do higher speeds solve all problems? In a recent podcast, cPacket’s Vice President of Product Management, Kerry Takenaka sat down with Douglas Green from Telecom Reseller to discuss the challenges of monitoring at higher speeds and how cPacket is helping companies overcome these challenges. Several highlights from the podcast include:

  1. Higher speeds don’t solve all network problems: With the transition of 1G to 100G, higher speeds tend to exacerbate the problem. Traditionally, many network problems are a result of insufficient bandwidth and the inability to accurately process the sheer volume of data.
  2. Divergence between delivery and processing: The network is overwhelming the ability for purely software-based tools to do the necessary processing in order to provide users with accurate data.
  3. Decision making with uncertainty: How can network operators justify and be confident with their decisions without accurate information?

cPacket Networks is addressing these challenges by combining the capabilities and benefits of both hardware and software solutions. Contact us to learn more about our products and solutions.
