How much bandwidth and data are the devices on your network using? SNMP and CDR sound familiar? We will talk about it later.

Bandwidth hogs can slow down your entire network, and per-device data usage is important if your Internet service provider imposes a bandwidth cap.

Unfortunately, it’s tough to get a complete picture of your bandwidth and data usage on a normal home network. 

Typically, it takes a network interruption to alert IT technicians to a problem. At that point, they are forced to be reactive rather than proactive. But if you always have your finger on the pulse of the network, you have a distinct advantage: You can spot and address issues more quickly because you know where to look.

This is where network bandwidth monitoring comes into play. With the right network bandwidth monitoring tool, you can:

– Identify bandwidth needs: While servers can be reconfigured if needed, it’s best to calculate your company’s bandwidth requirements at the start to avoid major overhauls down the line. 

This means determining the bandwidth needs of your enterprise’s local area network (LAN) or a wide area network (WAN). A network usage monitor will allow you to monitor WAN bandwidth and LAN bandwidth, pick a comprehensive understanding of the bandwidth capacity your network requires, and better evaluate when it may be time to upgrade your bandwidth; for example, if your company converts to laptops from PCs or adds a new division of employees. 

When you are monitoring network performance on an ongoing basis, you better be prepared to spot trends indicating a need for greater bandwidth far in advance. Put simply, planning for an upgrade should never take place as the result of a crisis.

– Boost network performance: The solutions to bandwidth complaints are often obvious, once you know where to look. 

Bandwidth analyzers provide a complete picture of your bandwidth and network health, empowering you to identify the applications using the most bandwidth and how they’re being used, spot bottlenecks at a glance, analyze and monitor traffic patterns, track response time, availability, and uptime of routers, switches, and other SNMP-enabled devices, and drill down into all of these details as needed. 

This allows you to be proactive about spotting emerging problems and quickly get to the root of a performance issue before end users complain and productivity comes to a grinding halt.

It is necessary to calculate bandwidth usage with SNMP, for example, if an in-depth detail about data displayed in NPM is needed, or to check the validity of the information displayed. 

Bandwidth utilization is calculated via the SNMP core. Also, it is calculated using the difference between two timestamps. Therefore, the calculations to manually perform this is considered time-consuming. And why going manual when you have the possibility of optimized remote management?

Asignet is capable of automating this process along with its driven technology platform using Robotic Process Automation and Artificial Intelligence.

– Enhance security: Hackers are abounding, ready to jump on an opportunity to inject malware into your company’s system, and prey on highly sensitive data and information. 

Monitoring bandwidth usage will enable you to readily identify suspicious activity and hosts by providing a detailed snapshot of potentially malicious traffic flows. 

Armed with this level of insight, you can stop hackers in their tracks and protect your company from a data breach.

– Save your budget: While it’s sometimes necessary to add bandwidth, it can be an expensive undertaking. The dream is to accomplish all we said before at a low cost and is possible with Asignet’s ability to optimize operations along with automation to make an impact on your companies’ cost savings.

Monitoring allows you to head off issues and troubleshoot slowdowns, but are you getting what you are paying for? Is the usage of your bandwidth proportional to its cost? SNMP and CDR

This is a huge deal for companies that don’t know how much bandwidth they are using and how much they are spending each year and access to wireless infrastructure is a necessity for today’s workers. 

Ensuring full wireless coverage and optimal wireless performance can be a challenge. However, through Asignet’s workflow Driven Technology, wireline TEM can reach the DNA of each infrastructure, each component of your voice and data network, ensuring that the services being paid are working and are correctly configured without misspending.

The CDR (Call Detail Record) integration provides the proper information to analyze VoIP calls including its quality components and metrics. With an optimization plan, you will be able to monitor performance by analyzing CDRs and proactively identify and eliminate distortion, latency, and noise. 

Asignet’s disruptive platform monitors the calls performance metric per location found within the CDR of all VoIP calls for tracking VoIP network workflows and makes sure that voice quality efficiencies are on track. It also allows you to report on CDRs to locate low-performance quality VoIP metrics, identify potential patterns, and find if other calls are affected. 

This helps companies to make huge cost savings and to assure the quality of every call made with real-time monitoring and alerting using SNMP and CDR analysis to precise VoIP performance problems.
