you’re responsible for the financial impact of your company’s IT organization,
there is one word that can send chills up your spine: downtime. Let’s face it,
downtime is bad. It is often measured in tremendous losses in time, talent,
brand-recognition and direct financial impact. Decisions to invest in preventing
these network incidents are typically quantifiable, but adding these numbers and
measuring the impact is not the issue here.
often difficult to measure—and can be a thorn in the side of any IT group—is
underperforming, sluggish and latent networks. These affect the productivity of
the average enterprise end-user as well as the sanity of an IT group trying to
troubleshoot the problem. Quite often, a network administrator’s approach
towards fixing a down network is more tactical when compared to the late night “shots-in-the-dark”
troubleshooting efforts for a slow and unpredictable network. The intuition of a
network administrator, in these circumstances, often goes unheard and underfunded.
You'll be glad to know there is a solution available to help prevent costly downtime
– the Traffic Access Point (TAP). To learn how building TAP modules into your
physical layer can help avoid downtime and improve the capability of your IT
group, be sure to attend the IT Roadmap Conference
and Expo August 6 at the Javits Center in New
York. Stop by booth #320 to see CommScope and Virtual Instruments demonstrate the
capabilities of an inline fiber optic TAP. The real-time data analysis will
show why building TAP capability into your physical layer fiber network, to
monitor the health of your Storage Area
can prevent downtime and lost time.
