“What’s absolutely crucial for us is to understand how our network is being utilized. For our particular requirement, we needed to understand how fibre was being used. We needed to be absolutely clear if there were capacity issues and to understand the behaviour. The other advantage of the (AppQoS) appliance is that it doesn’t add to the burden of network traffic and can handle 10 Gbit Ethernet traffic. If we’re taking an aggregated view, we didn’t want to stress the network by broadcasting from these appliances as well.”
