Net Optics Spyke: Interop Tokyo Finalist for Best of Show Awards in Two Categories.
When Net Optics was asked to contribute 8 of our products to ShowNet 2012, the prestigious NOC behind Interop Tokyo 2012, we were delighted to meet their request. The International Net Optics team spanning from Sydney to California pulled together and worked within some tricky deadlines to get 7 x 40G taps and 1 Spyke unit out to our Japanese reseller and onto the ShowNet floor, ready for ”hot stage”.
Imagine our delight when we were informed that out of the hundreds of submissions that were made for show awards we had be named as finalists in not one, but the two following categories:
Monitoring Management & Testing - マネジメントモニタリング＆テスティング
ShowNet Demonstration - デモンストレーション
This is the second time that Spyke has been recognised by the Interop brand. Last month in May Spyke was an integral part in InteropNet, the NOC behind Interop Las Vegas, and was one of three finalists for a Best of Interop award.
Dave Britt, Director of APM Technology, explained the role that Spyke will play in the ShowNet NOC:
Spyke will provide ShowNet with more than just basic Network Performance Monitoring for traffic on the Interop Tokyo floor. In addition to the traditional network and application performance information, Spyke provides sophisticated deep packet inspection to provide a rich set of reports on actual application usage and performance. Spyke has the ability to identify specific user activity, monitoring a broad range of applications such as web mail, instant messaging and VoIP and display that data in an intuitive way on the streamlined dashboard. We bring to ShowNet the ability to look at traffic but also to analyze what users are doing and how applications are actually being used.
Interop Tokyo Best of Show winners will be announced on the 13th of June, during the week of Interop Tokyo.
Interop Tokyo and ShowNet are held at Makuhari Messe, Chiba Japan, 12th – 15th June 2012.
