Service Providers have unique networking challenges as compared to other environments. Factor, differentiating Service Provider`s network from others, is the requirement for 100% uptime. The network stability is crucial to their customers’ business and is, therefore, intolerant to disruptions or outages, which may damage the company`s reputation and market position, or even affect it irreversibly. Downtime risks can no longer be mitigated by simply over-engineering the network, but rather deploying network optimization solutions, based on the intelligent monitoring and automated response, versus manual network troubleshooting and brute force time spending.
