There are many reasons that call for effective gathering of business intelligence data. These include billing, predict new revenue sources, verify and measure Service Level Agreements (SLAs), analyze and predict traffic patterns and to strategically forecast resource requirements as per the newer business demands. Still, the most of the current network equipment lack the facility to deliver these essential data. And even if they do, the network performance is severely impacted in the process. Taking care of this issue is Foundry's VM1 for the BigIron and the newly released FastIron 4802 with its JetCore ASIC, which is designed to enhance building business intelligence from the network without any impact to network performance. This network usage data can be used by service providers, carriers, and large enterprises to provide competitive advantage. For increased profitability, it is important to effectively employ new business models and management policies based on accurate, real-time accounting for the use of network resources.By Using Foundry Networks' usage-management solutions, network operators can improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of their infrastructure investments to a large extent. Apart from this, the Foundry Networks' usage-management solutions also allow service providers and carriers to migrate their customers from single-fee, flat-rate billing to more flexible plans, including separate service billing options based on time, traffic volume and/or resource usage.
