E N T E R P R I S E l CASE STUDY l Customer Profile The agency's innovative Network Operations (NetOps) team has earned notice for their efforts to maximize annual budget allocations while modernizing the technology platforms used to deliver government services to their employees. Their deployed NETSCOUT Smart Visibility and nGeniusONE real-time analysis solutions had long supported the agency's network performance monitoring and troubleshooting needs. The Challenge The NetOps team was tasked with assuring a successful data center operations technology refresh and migration to an on-premises environment. For years, this team had relied on NETSCOUT's nGeniusONE Service Assurance solution with InfiniStreamNG (ISNG) appliances to monitor the agency's existing network and application activity and knew from trended reports that the new data center was going to require an upgrade to high-speed links in their environment based on increased traffic volumes over time. This would also require that the nGenius Packet Flow Switches (PFSs) and ISNG appliances could monitor at the new network speeds to assure visibility as traffic transitioned to the new network and continue real-time monitoring after the migration. As part of ongoing agency data center transformation planning, NetOps had also identified a Cisco ® Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) software-defined networking (SDN) architecture as the next-generation solution best-suited to respond to their evolving network demands. In making the decision to move to Cisco ACI SDN, NetOps was motivated by potential reductions in cost, complexity, and IT overhead in managing performance across their distributed environment. Given the criticality of network performance to this agency's mission success, OVERVIEW The Challenge • Planned data center and Cisco ACI SDN projects required enhanced visibility and real- time monitoring for reliable performance • NetOps concerns regarding loss of visibility and IT control, security, and SLA compliance The Solution • nGeniusONE ® Service Assurance platform • NETSCOUT ® InfiniStreamNG ® appliances • nGenius ® 5010 Packet Flow Switches The Results • Seamless data center and Cisco ACI transitions • Uninterrupted service delivery to users across large-scale agency network Visibility During Cisco ACI Data Center Migration Strengthens Government Trust NETSCOUT Service Edge Visibility Assures Uninterrupted Agency Business
