Manually, Low Efficiency Generating Reports


Waste much time and manpower. Meanwhile mistake happens due to manually calculation.

Mass Data, Isolated Analysis


Hard to do correlated analysis among mass data in order to locate the problem.

Manage Network Performance


Troubleshooting Monitoring

Un-visualized, No Trend
Difficult to have a visualized view of the network performance status and to sense the changing trend.
