Whitepaper: Network Monitoring 2.0

Whitepaper: Network Monitoring 2.0

The journey toward a converged all-IP
network comes with a whole new set of performance and management
philosophies toward which IT organizations must adopt and evolve.
Real-time monitoring, troubleshooting and provisioning of the network
must be implemented strategically and methodically, as they are driven
by the need to maintain and manage the experience of the end user. In
particular, real time monitoring of network traffic is proven to be
essential in diagnosing and analyzing the performance of the network and
the services, and consequently the quality of experience (QoE) of the

It is the purpose of this paper to address the complexity challenges
associated with the existing network monitoring approach, which can be
termed broadly as "Network Monitoring 1.0" environment. As the network
has evolved from 2G to 3G and now 4G, the network monitoring also has to
evolve to a "Network Monitoring 2.0" model -- in which a single,
distributed capture layer creates a simplified and elegant architecture
that many large network operators have begun to adopt today.
