Why Pay More?

Network operators have no choice but to keep up with network evolution. It’s really a “Evolve or Die” situation as competitors will embrace new network performance tools as they become available. All this continuous tool sprawl has resulted in many operators with ten or more network monitoring tools to manage an ever-evolving network and ensure mission-critical network performance and to remain competitive.

Over time, this has resulted in increased cost for managing networks for licenses, tool specific hardware and software that places a burden on your network operating budget. Cirries estimates that this has increased the cost of Network Performance Management (NPM) tools by 40%.

Fortunately, a new, cloud-based, much more affordable solution is now available to consolidate your silo-based NPM tools to a single tool. This Next-gen tool moves beyond outdated, often special hardware-centric network monitoring to deliver end-to-end visibility of all the traffic in your network across physical, virtual, software defined, and cloud network infrastructures. 

This is Network Performance as a Service (NPaaS) available from Cirries.

How do you measure Network Performance?

Network performance measures the service quality of a network as seen by the customer. 

A business with high service quality will meet or exceed customer expectations whilst increasing profitability and long-term economics.  Improvements may be achieved by:

  • Improving operational processes
  • Identifying problems quickly and systematically
  • Establishing valid and reliable service performance measures and 
  • Measuring customer satisfaction 

What is NPaaS?

Network Performance as a Service (NPaaS) is End-to-End management of the network monitoring, troubleshooting, configuration, and optimization using a subscription model.

Benefits Include:

  • Always on-line with the latest release
  • Proactive management, rules, workflows, auto-discovery, remote diagnostics
  • Lowest Total Cost of Ownership 
  • Elastic capacity as needed
  • Pay one low price per month (as low as $500/month)
  • Optimize staff to perform more important duties
  • Always the latest software at a fixed cost

NPaaS can achieve significantly lower costs than multiple application monitoring tools, and is easily adaptable for ever-changing network environments. At the same time, it has a much better ability to detect network faults that can be missed by single-focused network tools.

All your existing Network Performance Management (NPM) tools, Application Performance Management (APM) tools and Digital Experience Management (DEM) tools by themselves do not provide an overall and complete view of the network performance as seen by the user resulting in lower customer experience statistics. Multiple tools also result in operational silos, poor end-to-end visibility, longer average resolution times, and the expense of multiple licenses.  

It is no longer sufficient to look for failures or breaches and resolve them after-the fact, you must monitor traffic volume, analyze in real-time end-user experience, and perform data trending analysis in real time. High quality End-User Experience Management is a priority for any business in 2022.

How Do I Implement NPaaS?

You deploy ready-to-use inexpensive Packet Forwarding Agents in your network to capture and forward network performance metadata to a platform in the cloud as shown below:

You can then discover and analyze network anomalies whether caused by hardware, software, or security breach. 

Replace your plethora of network monitoring tools with a single real-time solution with a time-series database to evaluate all network data and discover suspicious trends in the data that allows you to investigate and resolve issues before they affect your customers.

This tool ensures the network performance, application performance and digital experience KPIs are met. It also automatically identifies and resolves network connectivity issues to maximize end-user’s quality of experience (QoE) and overall network performance. High quality network performance management and application performance management can save a lot of time and effort.

What are The Benefits of NPaaS?

  • Early Anomaly Detection proactively protecting your network
  • Increases network efficiency
  • Minimize network outage time ($300K/hour)
  • Reduce breach detection time to minutes instead of days (168 days)
  • Automated workflows to reduce Mean Time To Repair ($475K/hour)
  • Ensure network optimization and plan network growth
  • Auto discovery of network elements

This economical Network Performance as a Service solution (NPaaS) only requires an out-of-the-box-ready to install appliance, your own server or VM connected to the network.  All network data is then forwarded to the hosted DART Performance Management Center. NPaaS allows for easy monthly payments and a choice of provided all-inclusive server, your own server or VM.


Existing solutions must evolve, be supplemented or replaced to guarantee the best possible End User Experience.
