Working Group Update: How Aryo Kresnadi of FedEx is Helping to Change the Future of Traffic Monitoring and Visibility

Managing the Network becomes far more challenging with today’s networks. Given fast-enough transmission and sufficient load, traditional data collection methods are unable to cope with data volumes. The result: traffic monitoring and visibility may be flawed or inaccurate.

As a board member of ONUG, Aryo Kresnadi is spearheading an effort to provide a set of tactical and strategic requirements aimed at guiding enterprise organizations in their design and selection criteria for traffic monitoring and traffic visibility solutions. Here’s what he has to say: (more…)
