Step 2 Data collection

Using network fault and performance tools, our -staff proceeds with the systematic, through collection of data in accordance with your established goals. This procedure occurs over a specified period depending on the number of segments/rings being monitored, An initial assessment through trace capture and data review. A monitoring period for traffic load patterns Statistical analysis; load and data Areas addressed include: Transmission reliability: Retransmission errors, connection problems and congested routes Load patterns: Analyze% network utilization, frame size Traffic type: Determine# protocols and distribution Station traffic: Uncover slow response times, Talkers/Listeners: Identify the most active stations Error type: Number, type and severity

Step 3 Report generation

In addition, we can conduct extended base line activity to provide detailed characterization of network traffic, exception reports and the behaviour of specific network devices.
