2 2 NetReality overview NetReality controls the assignment of bandwidth, ensuring delivery of critical applications Dedicated monitoring and traffic shaping device with central management software Integrated software & hardware solution WAN based or LAN based multi service platform – one device, multiple functions: 7-layer real time and historical monitoring, traffic shaping, SLM, CSU/DSU functionality, Accounting, Security, VoIP management

3 3 NetReality overview Without NetReality: Bandwidth is used inefficiently, creating uneven traffic flow, and dropped packets. Business suffers while non-critical applications crowd out critical ones. With NetReality: Assignment of bandwidth is controlled, ensuring delivery of critical applications

4 4 Key Principles Behind NetReality The WAN edge is the site of critical network application exposure – the bottleneck. NetReality WAN based platform protects the site of greatest bandwidth constriction scalable architecture: The NetReality system uses a central monitoring and policy management system with distributed remote devices, performing as both probes and shaping policy execution points User friendly, point & click, JAVA based Graphical User Interface

5 5 NetReality System Architecture The NetReality system is comprised of three basic modules: NetReality WiseWan Devices NetReality Server and Database - Central management server built on top of an industry standard SQL database NetReality Console (GUI)

10 10 NetReality Benefits Ease of Installation: Fully automated install scripts for software installation Modest system requirements WiseWan devices use auto-detect features to allow very simple installation on the WAN link Multiple remote management functions available after installation

11 11 NetReality WiseWan The WiseWan is a dedicated hardware device located on the WAN edge. It functions as a QoS Policy Execution Point, manipulating the traffic on the link to conform to the corporate policies In addition the WiseWan functions as a remote probe monitoring traffic at all 7 layers The WiseWan Classifies more than 700 applications and protocols and performs deep packet inspection classification based on content

12 12 NetReality WiseWan The WiseWan is a powerful network device, with multiple CPU architecture Based on an industry standard real time operating system - VXworks Remote management of the unit is done through the standard WanXplorer console Supports telnet, SNMP and FTP version download for maintenance

13 13 NetReality WiseWan The WiseWan is an SNMP agent: Generates standard traps to alarm on events in the network RMON2, MIB2, FR-MIB and other standards compliant (Concord support) compressed statistics are transmitted to the WanXplorer database using SNMP with a private MIB – reducing the telemetry overhead up to 5% of typical RMON2 solutions 2 management connection options: 10/100 Ethernet side-band IP connection 10/100 Ethernet or on-the-WAN in-band IP connection

14 14 NetReality WiseWan Multiple WAN & LAN Interfaces: Low speed serial lines – up to 12 mbps (V.35, X.21, X.24, RS232, EIA530, RS449) High Speed Serial Interface (HSSI) – up to 52 mbps Native DS1 E1/T1 lines – 4 wire (BNC, RJ48, DB15) CSU/DSU Model (DS1 and Serial) Channellized T1/E1 10/100 BaseT Ethernet

15 15 WiseCable The WiseWan WiseCable is an intelligent cable that bypasses any power failure or hardware breakdown. In such an event, the WiseCable ensures that the data continues to flow on the line by detaching the WiseWan from the network as soon as a breakdown occurs. The network continues to operate smoothly until WiseWan is operational again.

40 40 Classification and Prioritization Shaping policies are configured by the user using a point and click central policy console, and then distributed to the WiseWans WiseWans use advanced protocol and application decoding to classify the traffic in wire speed and determine if shaping is necessary Traffic to be shaped will be queued by priorities WiseWan releases the frames back at line speed, but different order - according to policy Low priority sessions will be delayed and slowed down, high priority sessions will be accelerated

41 41 Traffic Classification Applications and Protocol Support for more than 700 protocols and applications, including recognition of some applications using dynamic ports, user defined applications, and application header information – Citrix Published apps, Oracle information, HTTP URL and MIME type Direction Server and Client Host Source and destination: Hosts, networks, IP subnets and user groups, by defining their IP or IPX address Schedule Time of day, day of week Circuit Line or DLCI that the policy needs to be applied on

42 42 WiseWan Policy

43 43 Traffic Shaping Traffic shaping actions: Prioritization - the priority level of the rule by using the 6- level slider. The range is: Pass through, High, Medium- High, Medium, Low, and Block. Pass through allows data to be transmitted with highest priority with no constraints. Block prevents all data from being transmitted Bandwidth guarantee - minimum amount of bandwidth that this conversation/class should be guaranteed to Bandwidth limit - maximum amount of bandwidth consumption that you want this conversation/class to consume DiffServ Tagging – overwrite the DiffServ tag with a custom tag based on it’s calssification

44 44 WiseWan Bandwidth Policy Editor

45 45 Shaping Per PVC The Shaping Per PVC functionality allows WiseWan to guarantee bandwidth for congested PVCs regardless of the overall line congestion All WiseWan NAPS systems are defined by default for shaping per PVC. How Shaping Works - The user defines the Committed Information Rate (CIR) and the Maximum Information Rate (MIR) for each DLCI Shaping is triggered when traffic utilization on the PVC reaches ~85% of the MIR, and shaping stops when utilization drops below 60% Limits always work
