Netrounds, the leading provider of active, programmable test and service monitoring solutions, today announced its technical partnership with CA Technologies to improve network experience and analytics for enterprise customers. By nature of the new integration capabilities, Network Operations and Analytics from CA Technologies, when used with Netrounds’ active testing capabilities, will offer customers proactive assurance to address modern rapid service creations in SDN and Cloud.
“Using CA’s infrastructure monitoring with Netrounds’ active testing and service quality monitoring is a necessity for providing a superior customer experience in today’s rapidly-changing physical, hybrid and virtual environments,” said Stefan Vallin, Director of Product Strategy at Netrounds. “We are proud to be partnering with the performance monitoring leader to deliver capabilities that better equip enterprises to assure their network quality.”
The collaboration between the companies will greatly enhance operational analytics and allow enterprises to validate the dynamic creation of network services in automated SDx environments including Cisco ACI, Viptela and iWAN. Netrounds adds active test results and continuous monitoring KPIs to the Network Operations and Analytics platform from CA Technologies for enterprise network services, SD-WAN reroute validation, and public cloud network performance visibility. The combination of active service quality data and passive infrastructure metrics also provides automated, CA-triggered troubleshooting and root cause analysis for infrastructure faults or anomalies.
“Enterprise IT is faced with an increased frequency and rapidity of network changes enabled by SDN, cloud and self-service provisioning resulting in critical network services that are often deployed incorrectly,” said Tim Diep, Senior Director of Product Management at CA Technologies. “The integration provides customers with the unique ability to test drive SDx services before end users do so that needed improvements can be made before customer experience is impacted.”
