|System Optimization Services -
Getting the best from your system
When your system is optimized, it provides accurate and meaningful data. This means you can detect when a fault is about to occur, and act fast to prevent it happening. You can reduce the time it takes to correct faults that have occured. You can increase your team's confidence in your monitoring system, save on maintenance costs, and boost customer satisfaction.
What is Optimization?
The quality of the service delivered is the ultimate measurement of a monitoring system's effectiveness. The quality of service can be measured objectively, independent of user expectations. Specific metrics test accuracy, throughput, and many other aspects of system performance. Reliability, scalability and availability of the monitoring system are also important considerations in the optimization process.
When Can I Optimize a System?
Optimization is not something you should add to a system as an afterthought. It should be a part of the process of analysing requirements, designing and implement your monitoring system. Before you start to design a system, optimization analysis will identify key areas to address, and from this,the design phase will indentify how optimal performance can be achieved. During system implementation further optimization can be identified to fine-tune thresholds configurations and hardware resource allocation.
Without optimization, what Do I Lose?
A system that is not optimized may not deliver adequate service data, making it more difficult to identify and correct faults. Without optimization, the system is unlikely to provide a proactive 'fault prediction' capability, so the operator will always be reacting to faults that have already occured. Inappropriate threshold settings will create false errors and 'alarm storms', leading to loss of confidence in the system. Without optimization correlation between probe faults such as packet loss detected at one probe may be difficult or even impossibe to isolate. The overall effectiveness of the system will be compromised by the inability to identify specific packet types when they are lost.
How Does the Optimization Process Work?
Bridge Technologies has a systematic analysis methodology based on established KPI's and thresholds - carefully tailored to each customer's monitoring system requirements. We identify required changes and then design the improvements to be implemented on the system. The optimization report we produce as part of this process, can then be used as a baseline for future enhancements.
Optimization is a Four Step Process
The process is in depth and methodical
• System review and Analysis based on (New/Existing)
- Customer input
- Automated retrieval of system information
- Condition unique to the deployment
• Optimization change recommendation (New/Existing)
- Based on subjective and objective information
- Tailored to customers environment
- Best practice
• Implementation and evaluation of accepted changes (New/Existing)
- In conjunction with local engineers
- Result evaluation
- Final adjustments
• Report generation creating a base line
"Failure to optimize can result in frustrated users and increased OPEX with unnecessary truck-rolls - and ultimately it will cost you the loyalty of your customers." - Randouth Tillery
Randouth Tillery has many years of international experience working as a consultant with optimization of monitoring systems and analysis for the Broadcast and Telecom industry.
