Tata Communications Launches Application Performance Visibility Service



    Global Service Helps Customers Ensure Optimal IT Performance

    MUMBAI, India, June 2 /CNW/ - Tata Communications, a leading provider of
a new world of communications, today announced the launch of Application
Performance Visibility Service, a suite of integrated, end-to-end, network and
application performance monitoring service with three-tiered service
options-Network Visibility, Application Visibility, and Voice over IP (VoIP)
Visibility.
    Application Performance Visibility Service equips IT managers with
in-depth, real-time, historical data on every network site. The service offers
comprehensive views across the infrastructure (Layers 1 - 7), that multiple
users can share simultaneously to plan capacity, create reports, troubleshoot
performance problems, and reduce mean time to resolve (MTTR).
    Enterprises can monitor events across the infrastructure, including the
local loop, port, site-to-site circuit, application, and server performance.
In addition, they can test performance of business-critical network
applications before rolling them out into production. In-depth visibility
options provided by this service can be combined with the Application
Performance Optimization Services launched in 2008, which offer optimization,
compression, and acceleration features for a complete WAN and application
performance management solution.
    Tata Communications will be the first Indian-based provider to offer
integrated network and application monitoring services.
    Application Performance Visibility Service includes cost-effective,
scalable architecture based on Fluke Networks' proven Visual Performance
Manager Platform, a complete system for monitoring end-to-end performance of
applications and services across the enterprise. While real-time monitoring
occurs, this platform archives network, server and application data in a
back-end database that delivers a holistic view of enterprise performance with
up-to-the-second granularity.
    "As global enterprises depend highly on their IT infrastructure to
deliver quality applications to end-users, they require efficient, end-to-end
view of network and application performance. To that end, Application
Performance Visibility Service facilitates improved performance and management
of all network elements, including managing remote sites from central
locations, while reducing costs and delivering detailed reports for wise
capacity planning decisions," said Genius Wong, Senior Vice President, Global
IP and VPN services for Tata Communications. "This is especially relevant now
during the global, economic crisis."
    According to a recent article "Poor application performance translates to
lost revenue" Aberdeen Research discovered that enterprises face significant
consequences in the absence of integrated network and performance monitoring
tools. Fifty-eight percent of respondents noted a decline in employee
satisfaction and revenue opportunities due to poorly performing applications.
At the same time, approximately 47 percent indicated that declining
application performance decreased their customer responsiveness and damaged
brand reputations.
    "Application Performance Visibility Service can help minimize these
business concerns by providing customers the flexibility to troubleshoot their
WAN and applications online and in real time while also enabling them to
proactively monitor application to eliminate potential degradation in
performance quality," Wong added.
    According to Mike Gengler, Director of Sales & Marketing for Fluke
Networks, Asia/Pacific, "We are pleased and proud to collaborate with Tata
Communications. Their broad range of IT capabilities, superior quality of
service, and esteemed customer base create an excellent opportunity to extend
our solutions to enterprises that can benefit from improved network and
application performance."
