Every day, your network infrastructure generates vast amounts of data about your traffic. Effectively utilized, this data — NetFlow, IPFIX, sFlow, BGP, GeoIP, and SNMP — can be a rich source of insight for traffic analysis, day-to-day diagnostics, capacity planning, and peering optimization. So why are your network operations, engineering, and security teams often short of the actionable intelligence they need? Because they’re up against the limits of legacy tools.
Traditional network analytics systems weren’t architected to handle the scale of today’s networks. To cope with ever-increasing traffic, they discard nearly all raw data and focus instead on predefined summary reports. In the process, they waste most of your data’s value. The result is that engineers are left with a tiny fraction of the detailed intelligence they need to support real-world decisions in operations, security, and planning. Productivity, efficiency, and service-assurance are all compromised, and opportunities to enhance your business through innovation are lost.
