The new APM solution package puts an end to this problem. It consists of three modules. Using the first module, the customer lets Swisscom analyse the data traffic on its corporate network. Measuring and monitoring devices for this purpose are placed at strategic points in the network so that the performance of all applications can be visualised in real time.
On the basis of these findings, the second module is used to optimise the available network resources for each location. The individual connections are correctly dimensioned according to an exact calculation of the bandwidth actually required. This enables the customer to establish internal quality agreements for business-critical applications, for example.
The third module, which monitors the traffic behaviour of the applications, enables the customer to guarantee compliance with these agreements. To ensure this, Swisscom supports the customer round the clock with continuous data network monitoring.
APM is available as a supplement to the Swisscom LAN-Interconnect Service. Customers opting for this solution will have the expenses incurred for the first module (network analysis) reimbursed. The prices for the network optimisation and monitoring modules are calculated individually based on the specific needs of a company and the size of the corporate network. Customers purchase APM as a service at a fixed monthly price and do not need to invest in a costly infrastructure themselves.
