Solving the network measurement puzzle - case studies and solutions

01/01/2012 00:00 - 01/01/2012 00:00  


Managing a network in its entity requires a thorough understanding of the entire network and its modules, as well as modelling, measuring, securing and improving of them.

Welcome to the seminar, which offers you

- information about managing networks and their security
- information about various aspects of measuring the network
- concrete examples of network measuring setups and principles
- solutions how to utilise the network measurement data

Do you understand your network puzzle?

Today, almost all industrial and enterprise information systems are highly networked and complex. Typically, these are composed of an integration of numerous heterogeneous modules, where the complete operational picture is difficult to grasp and manage, and the overall composition is constantly evolving as a whole and in parts. This makes their management as a whole difficult and causes various operational issues, resulting in security threats and other problems. This is becoming increasingly visible and important as major related events, incidents, and associated losses are constantly reported in the news.

We invite you to come, listen and participate in discussions on

  • companies telling concrete examples of their problems and solutions

  • research organizations telling about international world-class research advances and how these solutions could help your company

  • discuss and gain ideas about your network management related needs and how they could be fulfilled

  • hear about Tekes funding possibilities for R&D projects in this field.
