Drilling Down on QoS: Drilling Down on QoS © 2014 ActionPacked Networks, Inc. dba LiveAction, All Rights Reserved. 4 QoS management is the collection of mechanisms that control how traffic is prioritized and handled during congestion All these QoS tools rely on traffic classification: the better the classification, the better the QoS Most common QoS tools Packets Packets Classify LFI Priority Queue Class Based Queue Class Based Queue Class Based Queue Default Queue Setting Mark Shape Police WRED Drilling Down on QoS: Drilling Down on QoS © 2014 ActionPacked Networks, Inc. dba LiveAction, All Rights Reserved. 5 To make the process as manageable as possible, QoS deployments need to take into account: QoS needs of the organization Current network architecture Applications used by the staff Traffic running over the network QoS capabilities available in the network devices With QoS Without QoS Visibility and analysis Protection of real-time and high priority data applications Free for all No protection of critical data, voice or video Key Considerations: Key Considerations © 2014 ActionPacked Networks, Inc. dba LiveAction, All Rights Reserved. 6 Ease of use Look for these capabilities : Visual Visio-like diagrams but with real-time and historical flows for quick diagnosis of performance issues Full visibility into devices and policies Key Considerations: Key Considerations © 2014 ActionPacked Networks, Inc. dba LiveAction, All Rights Reserved. 7 Flexibility Look for these capabilities : Copy and deploy an existing policy to multiple network devices Deploy cloud-based and on-premise business applications Work in MPLS, DMVPN, Performance Routing (PfR) and Intelligent WAN environments Accommodate on-the-fly QoS policy adjustments Key Considerations: Key Considerations © 2014 ActionPacked Networks, Inc. dba LiveAction, All Rights Reserved. 8 Power of solution Look for these capabilities : Powerful Monitoring Effective Management Scalability Deep application awareness Comprehensive monitoring and analysis Robust troubleshooting real-time and historical capabilities System intelligence to facilitate creation and execution of effective QoS policies Instant validation of QoS policy changes Fast resolution of application performance issues Synthetic traffic generation and analysis for measuring the impact of QoS policies in a controlled manner Thousands of network devices and millions of flows per second Works with Cisco advanced technologies Finding the Best Solution: Finding the Best Solution © 2014 ActionPacked Networks, Inc. dba LiveAction , All Rights Reserved. 9 End-to-end flow visualization for a holistic view of the network Easy to deploy, configure, monitor and analyze - with Cisco advanced technologies such as QoS, Medianet, PfR, AVC, AX, NetFlow and FnF Quick diagnosis of application performance issues through visual displays What to look for to find the best, most cost-effective solution QoS graphical control to troubleshoot and fix issues Instant validation of QoS policy changes LiveAction’s Solution Delivers on All Fronts: LiveAction’s Solution Delivers on All Fronts © 2014 ActionPacked Networks, Inc. dba LiveAction, All Rights Reserved. 10 End-to-end flow visualization for a holistic view of the network Easy to deploy, configure, monitor and analyze - with Cisco advanced technologies such as QoS, Medianet, PfR, AVC, AX, NetFlow and FnF Quick diagnosis of application performance issues through visual displays QoS graphical control to troubleshoot and fix issues Instant validation of QoS policy changes PowerPoint Presentation: © 2014 ActionPacked Networks, Inc. dba LiveAction, All Rights Reserved. 11 Download Software To learn more, visit http://liveaction.com/download-qos/
