Information Assurance and Accreditation

It is surprising how many SMEs take time to carry out active network baselining, taking empirical statistics of the performance of their functioning systems in order to determine their optimal resource performance. With network baselining, the availability of systems and network resources are measured to determine their normal performance with, and without peak utilisation, performance under no load, load and heavy load utilisations.

  • Capability planning,
  • Infrastructure and network optimisation,
  • Control plane resource utilisation and optimisation,
  • Accurate decisions about network thresholds
  • Identify current network problems
  • Predict future problems
  • Gain situation awareness
