Large-scale enterprise networks, by their very nature and design, feature large numbers of access points (APs) that demand access control. Providing reliable, private connections for different services is an effective way to improve production and maximize the value of your network infrastructure investment, especially for geographically dispersed enterprises. VPNs enable enterprises to use the Internet as a medium for secure, private data exchanges.
Meanwhile, concerns about quality of service (QoS) and traffic engineering mean enterprises must maintain minimum service levels and improve network resource utility to enable delivery of bandwidth-intensive applications such as streaming multimedia or video on demand. MPLS VPNs help enterprise networks meet these demands.
Established MPLS VPN standards enable flexible support for proprietary and standards-based networking equipment. This means MPLS VPN environments frequently involve a number of heterogeneous technologies - one of the challenges inherent in managing VPN deployment, operation, monitoring and service quality verification.
IMC MVM provides management functions such as VPN auto discovery, topology, monitoring, auditing, performance evaluation, VPN deployment and service deployment that enable IT managers to best allocate network resources. IMC MVM also contains a Traffic Engineering (TE) component that provides monitoring of TE devices, tunnel adding and publishing, and service quality protection. TE helps operators monitor the entire network and ensure service quality by distributing suitable network resources as necessary.
