Accedian announced that the latest release of its Skylight performance sensor software that the Company claims dramatically increases its granularity by several orders of magnitude.
This release significantly advances the performance monitoring granularity and network utilization management capabilities available for enterprise and communications service provider (CSP) networks. Available now, Accedian customers can deploy Skylight sensors with built-in flowmeter functionality to perform continuous bandwidth measurements down to one millisecond, gaining even greater capacity to detect and resolve the microburst storms that are often hidden from other monitoring tools and significantly improve customer experience.
The flowmeter feature of Accedian’s Skylight performance sensors allows enterprises and CSPs to extend highly accurate, detailed bandwidth utilization all the way to the edge in a TCO-disruptive manner. This passive metering function and reporting engine uses Accedian’s performance sensor modules—which combine small footprint, pluggable hardware and NFV-powered test control, computation and analysis—to measure throughput and packet statistics.
Accedian’s latest release is a cost-effective alternative to traditional network testing solutions, which typically only measure and analyze network utilization in one- to 15-minute time interval averages – an interval that leaves many network issues unidentified and unresolved. The highly-granular and detailed performance data is also a critical input for big data and AI systems related to performance and customer experience.
