nGenius Performance Manager provides government and enterprise customers with a comprehensive view into service delivery performance of today's modern IP networks. It is uniquely architected to scale to the massive amounts of converged voice, video and data traffic modern IP network deliver today.
nGenius Performance Manager is a key component of the nGenius Service Assurance Solution. It provides a comprehensive view to application and network performance -from the data center, thorough the core, and out to the branch office. Highly optimized to support the most complex and demanding network environments, nGenius Performance Manager leverages robust and pervasive packet-flow data collected by a comprehensive family of nGenius intelligent data sources, including nGenius lnfiniStream appliances, nGenius Probes and nGenius Virtual Agents and nGenius Integrated Agents software probes. Strategically deployed across the network and within virtualized server environments, these data sources capture and analyze real-time IP traffic flows. In addition, nGenius Performance Manager also leverages nGenius Collectors which utilize NetFlow, sFlow and jFlow data
from deployed network devices to gain additional insight
