CORK, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 -- SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced it will exhibit at CiscoLive! 2014 in Milan on January 27-31. The event is an opportunity for the company to connect with the network engineer community, and for attendees to demo SolarWinds' IT management products as well as meet SolarWinds' product experts, including an official Head Geek.

"At SolarWinds, we place a strong emphasis on identifying the real-world needs of networking professionals as part of our product development process," said Chris LaPoint, VP Product Management at SolarWinds. "Events like CiscoLive! 2014 represent excellent opportunities to identify the evolving needs faced by engineers every day. Their input contributes significantly to the success of solutions such as SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer, SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor and SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager."

SolarWinds' Head Geek Lawrence Garvin (yes, that's his official title), who is also a nine-time Microsoft MVP, will be available at booth no. E50 for Q&A. Experts from SolarWinds' product engineering team will be demonstrating the following solutions:

  • SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) provides real-time network utilization and bandwidth monitoring, enabling IT pros to keep a close watch on network traffic data. The latest version of NTA 4.0 has the ability to process 50,000 flows or more per second (400 per cent faster flow processing speed than before), and up-to-the-minute reporting.
  • SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) provides powerful and easy-to-use fault and availability management for networks of all sizes. It detects, diagnoses and resolves network issues; tracks response time, availability and uptime of routers, switches and other SNMP-enabled devices; and shows performance statistics in real time with out-of-the-box reports. NPM provides at-a-glance insights into the health of network hardware by monitoring, alerting and reporting on the state of the key devices sensors, including temperature, fan speed and power supply.
  • SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM) automates network configuration and change management, enabling bulk change deployment to thousands of devices, performing scheduled network configuration backups, and protecting against unauthorised and erroneous network changes. NCM also includes an integrated database of end-of-sale and end-of-life dates for Cisco® and Juniper switches and routers.

As a member of the Cisco® Technology Developer programme, SolarWinds works with Cisco® to deliver enterprise-class IT management solutions that improve the performance of corporate networks.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at di...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

WebRTC is doing for voice what HTML did for web content.
