QoS for Enterprises: ManageEngine and Cisco Demystify QoS
Webinar on the Design and Validation of QoS for Enterprise Networks
April 5, 2012 — ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, has announced its joint webinar with Cisco titled, ‘QoS Design and Validation for Enterprise Networks.’ The webinar, focused on QoS, will be presented by Ken Briley, technical lead, Cisco Systems, and Don Thomas Jacob, technical marketing engineer, ManageEngine. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, April 12, 2012, at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time.
Enterprises as well as service providers typically use a single IP network to carry data, voice and video traffic, be it business critical or otherwise. When different applications - which include mission critical, bulk data, scavenger traffic and latency sensitive applications like voice and video - converge over the same link, application delivery takes a hit. Congestion, delay and packet loss seriously impact the performance of your business applications and affect the quality of your voice and video calls.
A well designed Quality of Service (QoS) is a key factor in ensuring optimal application performance and service delivery in converged networks. QoS, available in almost all Cisco switching and routing platforms, can help control data loss during congestion, prioritize rich-media traffic and provide the right network resources to applications using the network. Despite its many advantages, QoS is still not widely implemented due to many considering it complex to design and difficult to validate.
Ken Briley from Cisco Systems will demystify QoS by explaining QoS design principles, application control using QoS and monitoring QoS. Don Thomas Jacob from the ManageEngine team will talk about how you can use NetFlow Analyzer to monitor and validate your QoS policy performance. These insights should help you create a high performance network that is robust, efficient and ensures application delivery. The key details about the webinar are as follows:
