Network Instruments Reports Revenues Rise 11 Percent
MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Jan 25, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Network Instruments, a worldwide leader in network and application
performance monitoring, today announced the company's total revenue
grew to record-levels, increasing by 11 percent over 2011. The
company achieved double-digit growth chiefly by addressing the needs
of Global 2000 organizations for performance monitoring solutions --
providing comprehensive unified communications (UC) coverage with
in-depth and contextual monitoring of complex multi-tiered
"Our performance monitoring innovations and ability to deliver
solutions that lower overall total cost of ownership have fueled our
consistently strong growth rate," said Douglas Smith CEO, president,
and co-founder of Network Instruments. "We offer deeper analysis and
a more streamlined troubleshooting process that yield immediate and
actionable resolutions. With our ability to provide unified
performance views from the application to infrastructure, we're
adding more than one new customer every day."
Significant growth has been achieved by
addressing the needs of network teams to monitor complex applications
with in-depth visibility and analysis for fast issue resolution.
"Organizations that do not have full application performance
monitoring capabilities reported their IT staffs spent an average of
46.2 hours each month in war-room meetings," said Bojan Simic,
president and principal analyst for TRAC Research. "Utilizing
application-aware network performance monitoring solutions like the
Observer platform offer a cost-effective way to immediately slash
troubleshooting times, optimize service availability, and ensure a
positive user experience."
A great example of in-depth transaction analysis contributing to
revenues can be seen in the number of IT teams utilizing the Observer
platform for assessing the performance of VoIP and videoconferencing
"UC monitoring and management solutions like the Network Instruments
Observer platform are in demand because they leverage deep-packet
inspection combined with detailed analysis and correlated
infrastructure viewpoints," said Jim Frey, managing research director
of Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). "Such comprehensive views
of the complete communication and services platform in full context
of the shared delivery infrastructure are of great value for assuring
success across the entire lifecycle of UC, from planning to piloting
to operations monitoring and troubleshooting."
Network Instruments has been a long-time
leader in delivering performance monitoring solutions that unify
Layer 4-7 application management with underlying network and
infrastructure health. This was demonstrated through multiple
industry-leading achievements in 2012:
-- First 40 Gb Data Center Monitoring Platform: Network Instruments'
hardware and software interface was the first to capture and analyze
full-duplex 40 Gb. Coupled with the GigaStor retrospective network
analysis appliance, IT teams are able to store up to 5 PB of traffic
to manage performance on critical 40 Gb links.
-- Mobile Carrier Market Expansion: The Observer platform expanded its
Internet Protocol (IP) Expert Analysis into the mobile market,
offering end-to-end visibility for tracking the flow of control and
data services across high-speed LTE networks.
-- Comprehensive UC Innovations: Through the integration of communication
protocols such as IPTV and infrastructure tracking including
Cisco(R) endpoints, Microsoft(R) Lync, and Cisco Medianet, the
company continues to lead the way in providing unified monitoring of
-- Streamlining Application Problem Resolution: The newest Observer
platform release streamlined performance assessments, triaging, and
root-cause analysis via new application dependency maps, performance
matrices, and performance correlations.
