Research and education networks are the original “hybrid” networks — part service provider, part enterprise. With the global pandemic putting remote learning on the rise, managing the complexity of these networks is harder than ever. On top of that, students and researchers are demanding better performance, higher availability, and more bandwidth for critical applications, while the pressure remains for network teams to do more with less. Fortunately, the Kentik Network Intelligence Platform can turn the tide by leveraging data you already have to reduce network costs, increase availability and performance, and improve team efficiency.
Proactively detect network performance, availability, and security issues campus-wide. Get the data to resolve incidents quickly with lightning-fast queries, months of retained details, and flexible filtering and grouping.
Get the industry’s most accurate and automated DDoS detection and triggering, and give security and operations teams detailed forensic capability. Drive automated mitigation actions via routing policy, or trigger mitigation services like Zenedge.
Automatic CDN and OTT service name labels provide deep understanding of per-service network utilization, regardless of where traffic originates: public or private CDNs, on-net or off-net caches.
When applications from e-learning to online course registration move to public cloud, the network is often an afterthought. But understanding what happens on cloud networks is still essential to understanding cost and ensuring application performance and security.
