Visual Networks Helps Enterprises Limit Streaming Media and Video

Visual Networks' flagship Visual UpTime Select application is helping enterprises optimize network performance by identifying authorized users who are utilizing bandwidth-intensive network resources for recreational purposes, such as streaming video or audio of the March Madness college basketball tournaments.

UpTime Select identifies over-utilized circuits, monitors application usage and auto-discovers applications that are being utilized at every site in the network. This can be used to pinpoint bandwidth hogs. Enterprises can thereby identify whether applications are business-critical, such as SAP or Siebel, non-work-related, such as streaming video or music file sharing, or unauthorized, such as a virus.
