Network/T delivers a powerful centralized management 
solution for distributed networks that are delivering 
today’s eBusiness solutions. Through policy-based 
management, Network/T aligns service levels with 
business objectives to provide ongoing availability, 
optimal performance, and management of networks 

in a business context. 

With the increasing trend for eBusiness, the network plays an 
increasingly vital role in today’s business arena. The transforma- 
tion of business to the electronic and digital age has brought 
performance and user experience to the forefront. Network 
management can make the difference between an eBusiness 
initiative being a success or failure. Effective network management 
requires a solution that treats your network as an integral part of 
your business. Network/T Advanced Edition Option Pack offers 
extended functionality and manageability to today’s business 
owners. Options include: 

Network/T™ Application Response Option 

Application response time has become the critical measure of 
overall Quality of Service for network users. The Network/T 
Application Response Option monitors the actual end-to-end 
response time for targeted applications across enterprise infra- 
structures. It precisely reflects the performance of the application 
as experienced by end users throughout the organization, even 
enabling performance management of applications not designed 
for such management. 

Network/7 ATM Management Option 

In today’s dynamic and competitive inter-networked marketplace, 
businesses are increasingly dependent on ATM networks to carry 
various types of information, such as voice, video, and application- 
specific data, and require the means to manage such networks in 
the same manner as their LANs. The Network/7 ATM Management 
Option provides monitoring and administration for the entire ATM 
network, including hardware, software, services, and devices that 
provide connectivity, and individual ATM circuits. 

Network/7 DECnet Manager Option 

The Network/7 DECnet Manager Option provides comprehensive 
network management capabilities to improve DECnet network 
availability and performance, resulting in better service for end 
users and a higher return-on-investment for the enterprise. 

Network/7 Frame Relay Option 

The Network/7 Frame Relay Option provides monitoring and admin- 
istration for the entire frame relay network. This includes hardware, 
software, services, and devices that provide connectivity — as well 
as individual frame relay circuits — from a user perspective rather 

than the network provider’s perspective. 

Neiwork/7” Response Probe Option 

As network usage increases, network response time has become a 
critical factor in overall Quality of Service. The Network/7 Response 
Probe Option automatically collects end-user response time and 
performance metrics for major network protocols, including TCP/IP, 
NetBIOS, IPX/SPX, and SNA. Working with Network/7, the Response 
Probe Option helps managers ensure the availability and optimal 
performance of their networks improving delivery of applications 
and services to business users. 

Network/7 SNA Manager Option 

The Network/7 SNA Manager Option provides an easy-to-use 
graphical interface for viewing enterprise-wide information pertain- 
ing to SNA network subsystems. This option is a client/server 
application that integrates CA-NetSpy® on the MVS platform, with 
SNA Real World Interface™ and SNA Manager Problem Analysis 
components on Windows NT workstations. It also enables 
CA-NetSpy to feed performance and alert data to Network/T.
