CUPERTINO, Calif., Dec. 3 -- Packeteer, the global leader in WAN application delivery, today announced the company’s strategic vision of Intelligent Service Assurance to guide its “Network That Thinks” product roadmap slated to roll out over the course of Q4 2007-Q1 2008. Packeteer’s vision of Intelligent Service Assurance is based on an enterprise’s need to increase the quality and performance of key applications for any user, any time, anywhere throughout the organization.
In order to achieve this vision, enterprises must realize the business value of complex IT infrastructures through intelligent solutions that align application service delivery with company priorities. This model will enable IT organizations to intelligently identify, discriminate, measure, optimize and control end-to-end application delivery -- operating under constantly changing workloads, across disparate applications, systems and network access points through a centralized portal to assure uninterrupted services. Packeteer’s Network That Thinks product roadmap contains the next generation solutions that will deliver this model of Intelligent Service Assurance to the enterprise.
“The convergence of file-based, transactional, voice and video applications traversing increasingly complex global networks is rapidly transitioning from the pilot and limited deployment phase to a firmly entrenched reality,” said Michael Brandenburg, enterprise network systems analyst with Current Analysis. “The real challenge that lies ahead is ensuring that these disparate classes of applications, which exhibit very different network behaviors, can effectively co-exist to meet companies’ business requirements. The bottom line is that each of these business-critical applications must be delivered securely and reliably with optimal response time performance to every authorized user, regardless of where they reside in the enterprise, without having to over provision the network. Packeteer’s service-oriented model is a compelling approach to application delivery.”
Network That Thinks Product Roadmap
The cornerstone of Packeteer’s Network That Thinks product roadmap is IntelligenceCenter, a comprehensive application and WAN management platform that enables enterprises to easily monitor, enforce and optimize application performance for all applications across the entire distributed network. The IntelligenceCenter platform intelligently identifies and monitors performance and quality for transactional, voice, video and bulk transfer files from the datacenter core to individual remote users. IntelligenceCenter can scale to manage up to 2,500 Packeteer appliances concurrently and provides a new Application Service Level portal, customizable end-user reporting and a single sign on, unified Web-based interface.
To fully deliver on its vision of Intelligent Service Assurance and to meet the growing enterprise need for higher performance networks and mobile edge solutions, over the next few months Packeteer will also be announcing the following:
When added to Packeteer’s recently introduced iShaper solutions for branch and remote offices, these new products provide Packeteer customers with the industry’s most advanced, end-to-end application delivery solutions.
Intelligent Service Assurance
Because its new product family consists of datacenter core, network edge and remote user services working in concert with IntelligenceCenter, Packeteer is moving well beyond commodity data and application acceleration technologies to deliver Intelligent Service Assurance for uninterrupted, end-to-end application delivery.
Packeteer defines enterprise services as those essential business processes that depend upon the reliable interaction of applications, networks and systems to move information and workflows. Based on in-depth customer feedback and leading analyst forecasts, Intelligent Service Assurance represents the next major stage of application delivery optimization to address the full spectrum of IT needs for today’s enterprises. Intelligent Service Assurance is meant to raise the bar on what organizations should come to expect in the way of high performance data, information and application delivery from network optimization vendors.
“Packeteer’s vision of Intelligent Service Assurance is predicated on the increasing need for enterprises to extract much greater business value from their significant worldwide infrastructure investments in LANs, WANs, VPNs, Mobile and wireless networks,” said Packeteer president and CEO Dave Côté. “Actively controlling the application service delivery experience to any user no matter where they operate is one of the most imperative IT initiatives for the enterprise. Packeteer’s Network That Thinks product roadmap is much more than a slogan. It’s going to become a defining requirement for organizations competing in the global economy.”
