Network Quality is key to the user experience, so why doesn't anyone measure it?
Accurate measurement of a networks ability to deliver time dependent data, such as VoIP, collaborating & conferencing.
Increasing bandwidth doesn't always mean an improved user experience. Capacity utilization is vital to the user experience
Delivers an inbuilt web architecture designed to eliminate Internet threats
Performance measurement of critical network services, such as DNS, FTP, Routers etc.
A single test does not define how a network performs. Consistent testing over time is essential for application success.
MCS tests, measures & reports the performance and health of any network connection, LAN or WAN. MCS is an access everywhere web based enterprise solution.
The MCS distributed satellite architecture delivers a powerful, low-cost, centrally managed, deployment model which is able to address the measurement requirements of global enterprise networks.
The MCS unique Access platform technology also integrates into satellite architecture to deliver a virtually impenetrable platform, void of an operating system, that is able to measure quality as well as performance, for any network connection anywhere in the world. Finding, isolating and reporting quality problems quickly removes threats to the user experience.
No matter how much bandwidth is provided our desire always seems to be 'I want more'.
This desire is encouraged by the persistent publicity from a myriad of bandwidth providers that more bandwidth is faster.
In short bandwidth is synonymous with speed, and more speed is better for the experience than less speed...
In the digital era, consumers have more choice than was ever imagined a little over a decade ago.
With more and more customers complaining about their online experience, is network monitoring up to the job?
Over the last 20 years the number one recommendation to resolve network experience problems has been 'get more bandwidth'. However, despite bandwidth increasing by several orders of magnitude, a poor user experience still remains the no. 1 complaint.
Part 2 extends this discussion to introduce the importance of network quality and the user experience. Reading Part 1, see left, is recommended for better understanding of key network measurement concepts.
The Access Series platforms were designed to be immune to virus, dos and hack attacks that continually threaten business networks and applications. The Access solution is void of the layers that fall victim to such threats, no commercial operating system, file System, memory management structure, executables, scripts or other corruptible binaries. Through design the Access platform eliminates the common network threats, especially in the public domain where the these threats originate.
The unique design of Access solution delivers an efficient architecture with overhead below 0.05%. So, unlike commercial platforms which are vulnerable to these threats, the Access Series solution delivers an accurate, robust, low cost, measurement platform that can be deployed in the public/private domain.
