Using Network Analytics and SDN to Optimize Converged Infrastructure


Network analytics have long been used to troubleshoot bottlenecks and performance problems. Enhanced analytics based on context – user, role, device, time of day, location, application – coupled with SDN can now be leveraged to improve user experiences, increase insight to the business, and reduce operating expenses.

In this session, you’ll gain a practical understanding of how SDN can solve real world challenges today, including:

  • Using Application vs. Network Response Times to troubleshoot user-related issues faster and more effectively
  • Leveraging contextual analytics of devices, location, and applications to program the network for better user experiences
  • Applying Application Analytics to speed deployments and increase user adoption of critical applications like Microsoft Skype for Business
  • Gaining holistic insights into the entire Application and Network ecosystem to better target future investments and resource requirements
