Leading Analyst Firm Ranks Fluke Networks’ Visual TruView Best Hybrid ANPM Solution and Value Leader

leave a comment »

— New Application-aware Network Performance Management Radar Report released by Enterprise Management Associates
EVERETT, Washington /PRNewswire/ — Fluke Networks’ Visual TruView was ranked the best Hybrid ANPM Solution and a Value Leader for large enterprise and service provider deployments, according to the new 2013 Application-aware Network Performance Management (ANPM) Radar Report from Enterprise Management Associates, a leading industry analyst firm. The report evaluated 24 vendors including NetScout, Riverbed/OpNet and CA Technologies.
Visual TruView, introduced in late January, integrates the separate disciplines of network and application performance monitoring, element managers and Stream to Disc (S2D) with up to 10G performance, (1) so engineers never have to waste time performing “swivel chair “correlations across multiple tool sets.
“Fluke Networks is a Value Leader due to the progress made with their new Visual TruView product. It’s an integrated, unified appliance that includes packet monitoring technology, packet storage technology, NetFlow/xFlow, and SNMP, all in a single appliance rated and verified for 10G,” said Jim Frey, vice president of research at Enterprise Management Associates. “We also recognized Fluke Networks for the best Hybrid ANPM Solution because Visual TruView shows more capability in a single box than we see from any other solution in the market at this time.”
To ensure this integrated functionality operates without degrading performance, Visual TruView has 2.5 times more analytical processing power than any competing solution. Plus, TruView features a single, correlated dashboard that makes it easy for engineers to drill down to individual or group of flows, packets or transactions of any user, site or period of time in just a few clicks. Furthermore, it offers automatic identification and configuration of applications and networks, so set up takes just 15 minutes or less. (2)
“ANPM is all about giving networking and application teams visibility into their infrastructure so they can clearly see what issues affect their network and end-users. We designed TruView to help teams collaborate in the monitoring and troubleshooting of issues so they can quickly respond to changes before they impact the business,” said Daryle DeBalski, vice president and general manager of the Fluke Networks’ Visual business unit. “EMA has a keen understanding of this market and we’re excited to be named a value leader and be awarded the best hybrid ANPM solution.”
This EMA Radar™ Report focused on core capabilities and features associated with network operations’ need to recognize, characterize, troubleshoot, and communicate details of how applications and services perform as they transit the network. Twenty-four vendors were covered in the report, including: AppNeta, CA Technologies, Compuware, ExtraHop, InfoVista, Lancope, NetScout Systems, Network Instruments, Riverbed and SolarWinds.

leave a comment »

Latest cutting-edge innovation from cellular uplinking pioneer boosts smartphones with additional cellular channel (MiFi) and battery for extra resiliency and performance
HACKENSACK, N.J./PRNewswire/ — LiveU (www.liveu.tv), the leader in portable live video-over-cellular solutions, is unveiling its new patent-pending Smart Grip device in a handheld monopod for its LU-Smart mobile app at NAB 2013 (booth #SU5511). The new Smart Grip device holds a chargeable battery and MiFi channel (or any other mobile hotspot) that is bonded together with the smartphone’s internal 3G/4G connection to create two combined cellular connections beyond the smartphone, boosting the phone’s live video transmission time, quality, reliability and performance, without any need for Wi-Fi connectivity.
Supporting all iPhone and Android devices, the LU-Smart software-based app represents the next level in mobile app newsgathering. Without requiring any set-up time, LU-Smart can be used for rapid news coverage. Reporters can simply take out their personal smartphone and transmit high quality live video back to the studio, whenever and wherever they may be. Live reporting capabilities can be extended to any person in the news organization.
Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO, said, “LiveU is again pushing the boundaries of innovation in the cellular uplink space, this time with a new smartphone jacket. LU-Smart enables any person with a smartphone to be a bona fide video journalist by simply downloading the software. We’ve had tremendous positive feedback for our smartphone app from broadcasters, complementing other LiveU units in the workflow and extending their newsgathering capabilities. It’s an ideal solution for breaking news coverage, especially in locations far from urban centers, and the new Smart Grip boosts its capabilities even further.”
The LU-Smart app includes other new features, such as: virtual matrix for simple workflow management, enabling newsroom operators to monitor and switch between content from different devices for live broadcasts; and ad hoc usage, which can be code-activated for 24 hours by the newsroom when a reporter or dedicated freelancer arrives at the scene.
LU-Smart is incorporated into the LiveU ecosystem by LiveU’s unified management platform, LiveU Total™, enabling control rooms easily and effectively to manage multiple video feeds from LiveU units operating in diverse locations.
LiveU owns the patent for cellular bonding for remote news gathering in the US and other countries. All LiveU products are based on this fourth-generation patented technology.
LiveU is presenting its Smart Grip device and full range of live video uplink solutions at the 2013 NAB Show®, April 8-11, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth #SU5511.
The LiveU Xtender, mounted on KOVR-TV (CBC Sacramento) weather truck, can be seen in the NAB Outdoor/Mobile area at the E-N-G Mobile Systems booth #OE820.
