E N T E R P R I S E l CASE STUDY l Customer Profile This agency provides statistical reporting and financial recommendations to help guide the federal government's efforts to sustain this country's economic health. The agency's Network Operations (NetOps) team has for years relied on NETSCOUT solutions to assure high-quality data center operations, as well as monitor the network that supports business applications used by researchers and analysts. The Challenge As part of continued service delivery improvements across the agency environment, information technology (IT) leadership had secured federal budget commitments to upgrade their network to accommodate increased 40GB speeds, as well as establish a secondary data center to complement their primary data center operations. While the NETSCOUT nGeniusONE Service Assurance platform and deployed InfiniStreamNG (ISNG) smart data sources provided visibility into, and real-time monitoring of the data center core and across their external network, the IT leadership team was well aware establishing a second data center and adopting faster network speeds would require additional instrumentation beyond that in the production footprint. Given the complexity of their multi-vendor technology environment, IT leadership wanted to approach this project with an agility that would support successful deployment of these new solutions without adversely impacting the day-to-day work of subject matter experts completing critical financial analysis on the nation's behalf. HIGHLIGHTS The Challenge • Upgraded network speeds and data center environment require visibility and monitoring • Cost containment and uninterrupted service delivery project requirements The Solution • nGeniusONE ® Service Assurance platform • NETSCOUT ® Certified InfiniStreamNG ® software appliance technology, supporting 40GB network speeds The Results • Agile deployment, uninterrupted service delivery, extended NETSCOUT ROI • Improved visibility & monitoring for remote users, including VPN & Microsoft Teams Federal Agency Enhances Data Center and Network Monitoring Operations With NETSCOUT Software-Based Smart Visibility Approach Meets Government Cost Containment Goals, Improves ROI
