DALLAS -- MASERGY, a global service provider specializing in simplifying business networks for enterprises, announced it has released Network Analyst 2.0, featuring the industry’s first Active Network Map for near real-time visual insight into traffic and application performance across the wide-area network (WAN) .

Network Analyst 2.0 delivers the next generation of WAN-embedded management services, including a comprehensive “network dashboard” for unmatched WAN visibility and control. Using a Web-based portal, businesses can view and filter inbound and outbound network traffic by application, protocol, port, IP address and QoS service plane. Upgrades for version 2.0 include traffic sorting by “Top Talkers”—IP address pairs that generate the most traffic.

Additional upgrades to Network Analyst 2.0 include increased control and more granular detail for day-to-day management, troubleshooting and performance analysis across the entire enterprise WAN:

  • Active Network Map – Top 15 Sites Data Exchange View

  • Application profiler

  • Customer-defined site names

  • Enhanced filtering

  • Dropped packet thresholds

  • Configurable applications

  • Printer-friendly reports

The new Active Network Map displays the quantity, quality and content of traffic among the enterprise’s top 15 network sites. The tool visually indicates traffic patterns and direction, bandwidth utilization and recent bandwidth changes in one comprehensive, intuitive view.

From a view of the top 15 sites users can drill-down to the activity of a specific IP address and its traffic with just a few clicks. The main, multi-site view of the Active Network Map updates red- and green-shaded connections between each network node in 10-minute cycles, accompanied by a Tree Map, which enables users to immediately spot network traffic patterns and exceptions. A click of the mouse details the inbound or outbound traffic of a particular site, as well as traffic exchanged with other sites and all associated IP addresses for that traffic. For any specific IP address, a detailed graphical display of traffic is revealed.

“Network Analyst 2.0 delivers embedded network services that combine industry-leading capabilities with innovative customer-controlled tools,” said Linda Austin, senior vice president of strategy and product management for MASERGY. “These service upgrades demonstrate MASERGY’s continued commitment to delivering the strongest network experience to enterprises.”
