VOSS Insights: NetFlow

Unleash all of your data with NetFlow

Home » Resources » Product Brochures » VOSS Insights – NetFlow

VOSS NetFlow offers a deep network understanding across performance, usage, and degradation areas. Combine this with collaboration data across on-premises and cloud deployments for increased fault isolation, user experience, security vulnerabilities, and network planning.

Collaboration solutions rely on other technologies, namely the underlying IP network to enable a successful deployment and experience.

Understanding and monitoring collaboration applications, in areas like voice quality and alarms, is an important piece. However, this data cannot be treated in isolation and does not give you an end-to-end service or solution picture. Voice is impacted by poor design and congestion on the network. Recently, this network pain has changed from a business-inoffice problem, to a remote working or cloud problem.

Being able to access and use data about the network and understanding where voice calls transverse speeds up the troubleshooting process and improves user experience, increasing collaboration and productivity.

NetFlow handles this diversity, complexity and velocity of data, which is beyond human capability, making it possible to ingest, enrich, correlate, and unearth potential problems in real-time or before they happen.

Why VOSS Insights with Netflow?

Most network monitoring tools only focus on the macro, taking sample data to show top talkers or top applications, but this approach misses the micro; the detail which paired with collaboration data can solve the intermittent but frustrating issues which exist across all solutions. Some areas where VOSS Insights with NetFlow helps your business:

  • Take all the raw flows of data from source to destination, and add historical and near-realtime data about the flows of traffic across the network
  • Combine the voice data (such as CDR) with the NetFlow traffic to see where calls are routing over the network to understand and resolve issues
  • See changes in flows over time and see how the network is changing and what the impact is
  • Capacity manage the network to ensure optimum performance
  • Use a big data platform and not a MIB-based “fetch in hope” approach
  • Combine flow data with GeoIP information
  • Access all data across all time, not just a subset over a limited period
  • Support different flow types – NetFlow v9, v5, IPFIX, s-Flow, j-flow
