TechTell, Inc. Provides 24×7 Monitoring Services to Increase the Value of an Organization?s Cisco Investment

Elma, WA (PRWEB) August 28, 2006

Cisco products’ credibility and reliability is regarded across the IT and business community as one of the best. However, just as with all IT, 100% self-monitoring and 100% uptime are taboo words that yield significant caution to experienced IT professionals. Real-time metrics of performance and faults with today’s complex network infrastructures continues to be among the top business and IT priorities, and emerging practices in the industry being regarded a necessity, not a luxury.

Organizations globally continue to employ Cisco’s latest technologies to create business efficiencies and capture new market share; Aironet wireless routers, VoIP gateways, etc. To offset purchase costs, competitive organizations are finding ways to lower the total cost of Cisco product ownership through monitoring solutions by improving trouble isolation and rapid resolution capabilities, and subsequently increasing employee productivity and customer satisfaction. Some have deployed Cisco’s Network Analysis Module for traffic monitoring to foresee network failures, but this is still limited solution.

The challenge continues to be “how does an organization effectively monitor itself internally”. Furthermore, Cisco devices each report network information individually, facing organizations with the challenge of aggregating disparate monitoring data from multiple products without a single comprehensive reporting source. This can be frustrating to the IT department, expensive to the accounting department, and inefficient across the entire organization. To address this, organizations have flocked to outsourced external monitoring solutions that afford them the value of monitoring professionals and single source reporting at an extremely cost effective price point relative to in-house solutions.
