DeKalb County Schools Case Study
DeKalb County School District Sees Clearly with TruView and OptiView XG
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.
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.
