The Observer Suite of network performance monitoring and diagnostics (NPMD) error analysis tools developed by Viavi have several components that can be used individually or jointly.
Observer GigaFlow allows end-to-end evaluation of individual data streams for the first time; therefore, any disruption can be assigned to a specific network level, application, or even end device.
Observer GigaStor records and archives the entire operation of an IT network. This data can be used to perform a comprehensive analysis. The user can easily navigate to the point of error and obtain detailed status information at the package level from before, during, and after the event. This enables the user to quickly and accurately identify and locate the cause of the error. The security forensic functions can also be used to determine whether a security breach has occurred, and which resources are affected.
The Observer Apex software summarizes the monitoring results from the error analysis tools in a few clearly understandable performance indicators to also be easily understood and interpreted by IT technicians without in-depth knowledge of fibre optic technology.
The security requirements for telecommunications and data networks are constantly growing. At the same time, digital services are expected to be available with high bandwidth at all times. NPMD systems such as the Observer Suite allow these requirements be met, and are available through LASER COMPONENTS.
