How network visibility can impact the user experience *


Network Visibility

The user experience (UX) is a critical factor in the success of any organization, and network visibility can play a crucial role in ensuring that users have a positive experience. In this blog, we will explore the relationship between network visibility and user experience, and discuss strategies for optimizing network visibility to improve UX.


Network visibility refers to the ability to monitor and analyze network traffic, which enables organizations to identify and address issues that can impact the user experience. For example, network latency, bandwidth limitations, and connectivity issues can all have a negative impact on UX.


By having network visibility, organizations can identify and address these issues quickly, minimizing their impact on the user experience. For instance, network administrators can identify when network congestion is occurring and prioritize network traffic to ensure that critical applications have the necessary bandwidth to function smoothly.


There are several strategies that organizations can employ to optimize network visibility and improve UX:


  1. Monitor Network Performance in Real-Time: To ensure a positive user experience, it's essential to monitor network performance in real time. Real-time monitoring enables network administrators to quickly identify issues that can impact UX, such as network congestion, and address them before they have a significant impact on users.

  2. Prioritise Network Traffic: Prioritizing network traffic is another strategy that can help improve UX. By prioritizing critical applications, such as those used for video conferencing or collaboration, organizations can ensure that these applications have the necessary bandwidth to function smoothly.

  3. Implement Network Segmentation: Network segmentation is a technique that can help improve network performance and security. By segmenting the network into smaller subnets, organizations can reduce the impact of network congestion and limit the spread of cyber threats.

  4. Use Network Analytics: Network analytics tools can provide valuable insights into network traffic patterns, enabling network administrators to identify issues that can impact UX. For instance, by analyzing network traffic data, network administrators can identify which applications are consuming the most bandwidth and prioritize them accordingly.

  5. Utilise SD-WAN: Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) is a technology that can help organizations optimize network traffic for UX. SD-WAN enables network administrators to dynamically route network traffic based on performance and bandwidth requirements, ensuring that critical applications have the necessary bandwidth to function smoothly.

The user experience is a critical factor in the success of any organization, and network visibility can play a crucial role in ensuring that users have a positive experience. Network Critical’s SmartNA-XL™ is a Network TAP and Packet Broker which offers optimum visibility to the network. By monitoring network performance in real-time, prioritizing network traffic, implementing network segmentation, using network analytics, and utilizing SD-WAN, organizations can optimize network visibility and improve UX. By doing so, they can improve user satisfaction, boost productivity, and drive business success.
