How to View WAN Applications in LiveNX

Wide-area networks (WAN) have undergone a great transformation over the past decade. An enabler of this evolution, cloud services, has been a major driver of this change; as has the emergence of the internet as a source of affordable, high-bandwidth WAN connectivity. A few years ago, a set of technologies emerged to enable these transformational drivers. The industry referred to this technology as software-defined WAN (SD-WAN).

An SD-WAN deployment is a challenging undertaking for any NetOps team. In fact, there are common challenges we’ve seen repeatedly over the years. For example, deployments typically start with a proof of concept, followed by the actual deployment, which can be broken out into day 0, 1, and 2 phases. The steps are similar across customers but differ in terms of vendor, architecture, and SD-WAN technologies used.

Blindspots in SD-WAN Monitoring

Organizations often lack visibility to WAN application traffic, and IT professionals need advanced performance and analytics capabilities to gain insights into performance – that’s where LiveNX comes in. LiveNX provides application performance visibility that validates WAN Application performance and business investment.

With LiveNX networks management teams can see the entire network by unifying data from virtually anywhere – WAN, SD-WAN, WiFi, remote sites, data centers, and multi-cloud including AWS and Azure.

To see how to get started with LiveNX’s WAN Application Dashboard check out our video below!

Through the LiveNX WAN Application dashboard, a user can view the application group, application status, input bit rate, output bit rate, voice and video, and application performance. Drill down for a more granular view and check out an application’s entity page and see data for inbound and outbound performance including the packet loss rate and the bandwidth rate. Network and application performance data is also shown in context on the network topology view for an easy to interpret visual display.
