Cisco and NetQoS tool checks Wan optimisation

John-Paul Kamath

Cisco and NetQoS have released network monitoring software for use with Cisco's Wide Area Application Services devices. The software will allow IT managers to validate the results of Wan optimisation deployments.

The aim of the integration between WAAS and NetQOS's NetQoS Performance Center performance measurement, analysis and reporting software is to help enterprises take before and after measurements for pilot testing WAAS appliances determine which locations and applications can best exploit the benefits of WAN optimization and cost-justify larger-scale deployments by better calculating the ROI.

"NetQOS and Cisco only see what happens on the network. There is a lot that goes on inside the applications and databases that they don't have an understanding of," said David Williams, an analyst with Gartner. "They show a piece of it, but not the whole thing."
