Intel-Cisco’s ‘Connected Video Analytics’… “Collecting data from PCs to solve network problems”

Cisco and Intel are expanding their technology collaboration to improve the wireless connectivity experience. Cisco Wi-Fi devices collect data from Intel-based PCs to solve and optimize wireless connectivity issues for end-user devices. This new technology is called Intel Connectivity Analytics. It evaluates Wi-Fi connections and enables IT teams to monitor wireless resources.

This function utilizes an Intel-based PC with a Wi-Fi 6/6E chipset and a Cisco Wi-Fi device. System equipment includes the Cisco Catalyst 9800 Series family of wireless controllers, Embedded Wireless Controllers, and Meraki cloud access points.

According to Matt McPearson, Cisco’s CTO of Wireless, this feature can be activated from the menu of the Catalyst 9800 series wireless controllers (version 17.6 and later) and from the Meraki dashboard. McPherson’s blogFor example, Intel Connectivity Analytics extends analytics to the client itself. It collects information such as make and model, driver version, and connection path, providing IT teams with visibility both from the network side and from the cloud side.

“Using this technology, we can quickly gather device details to troubleshoot wireless driver issues or potentially large client connectivity issues. This means reducing the time to identify problems and isolating the root cause more quickly, so that the troubleshooting process can take place,” McPearson said. “It eliminates the most time-consuming process.”

The program is also important for IT teams to use in a hybrid work environment. This means that employee devices can more efficiently troubleshoot network-related issues in environments that are far from the corporate network. In fact, Cisco and many other vendors are now improving their products and services to help IT teams respond to the growing number of remote or hybrid network users.

Cisco has added ThousandEyes, a network management agent, to its WebEx collaboration platform. Southeye WebEx Agent is integrated into the WebEx data center to provide interactive visibility in the WebEx environment. IT teams can gain visibility across different user locations that need to support WebEx services.

In addition, the insights discovered by Southeye agents can be integrated with information from the Cisco Meraki Insights management package. This allows businesses to monitor the performance of web applications and WAN Links on the network in case of network or application problems.

Meanwhile, Cisco and Intel have been working closely for the past 12 years to develop networks, wireless, hyperconverged infrastructure, and server systems. Recently, they collaborated on porting the 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable process to Cisco’s Unified Computing System server. [email protected]
