Point of Sale Terminal Monitoring: Removing Vulnerabilities

With the bulk of corporate budgets being spent at the datacenter, most IT people and their monitoring and security solutions are deployed in a datacenter or at corporate headquarters, leaving little if any visibility out to the edges of the distributed network. Although network-enabled POS systems have been around for a couple of decades now, it is only very recently that businesses have begun to understand how critical it is to monitor them. Fortunately, performance and security technologies seen more commonly in the datacenter space have become small enough and affordable enough to be deployed at POS location

How to Perform Multi-Channel Analysis for WLAN Mobility

Clients roam. It’s what they do. Today’s wireless networks are primarily about mobility, and rarely about portability. If clients roam, then troubleshooting tools must follow. For a long time, analysts have captured frames (aka packets) traversing a single channel, but what happens when a client roams to another channel as it is designed to do? Poof! The client vanishes from the analyzer's view and troubleshooting stops right there. This has been a particularly perplexing problem for Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) analysts given that they are troubleshooting highly-mobile connectivity.
