LAN and WAN Solutions
While traffic speeds on LANs and WANs have risen sharply since the advent of DPI technologies in the late 90s, so have the number and types of applications on these networks and the “bursty” nature of their behavior. Aggressive recreational streaming audio and video traffic including even mission-critical voice and video applications authorized by schools and businesses, can easily expand to consume all available bandwidth on a given link. Even worse, lack of visibility into network traffic make it impossible for IT managers to distinguish one from the other, often leading to “all or nothing” application admission policy implementations that can negatively affect business and learning processes and programs.
Platform developers and their customers who integrate Procera’s Network Application Visibility Library (NAVL) OEM DPI application classification engine give users the ability to see all of the traffic on their networks and to choose how each traffic type will be managed on the network. They can then apply the control technologies of their choice to regulate both the performance of the network as a whole and the individual applications on it, ensuring high quality experiences for users of sanctioned applications and helping ensure that recreational and other traffic has minimal negative impact on business and learning performance.
