DeKalb County Schools Case Study

DeKalb County School District Sees Clearly with TruView and OptiView XG

Challenge:
The DeKalb County School District’s infrastructure includes more than 1,700 switches and routers, three core network sites on a 10Gb fiber ring and 16 head-end locations. The entire system consists of more than 140 locations, including schools and centers that serve 14,000 employees and 100,000 students. The network also supports thousands of personal Wi-Fi enabled devices each day. With a wide range of users and technical abilities, the team needed to be able to quickly identify, isolate and solve network and application performance issues before they impacted the district.

Results:
DeKalb County Schools found a winning combination for network and application performance monitoring with TruView and the OptiView XG Network Analysis Tablet from NETSCOUT. The addition of TruView allowed the district’s network team to establish a performance baseline for comparing abnormal traffic, which helps them address network and application issues proactively and resolve performance anomalies before students or staff are affected. Once the team identifies a problem, the OptiView XG gives team members a portable solution to isolate root cause and fix the problem in the field.
