Now you can detect every application in your network and optimize bandwidth with application-aware policies. Cisco AVC monitors application performance and troubleshoots issues that arise. It helps you deliver business-intent policies across the entire network. And it does all this without additional appliances in a simple and powerful way.
AVC uses stateful deep packet inspection (DPI) to classify more than 1400 applications. It can also combine DPI with techniques such as statistical classification, socket caching, service discovery, auto learning, and DNS-AS. Custom applications can detect native apps.
Reprioritize applications using our industry-leading QoS capabilities. Group applications using attributes based on traffic class and business relevance. Choose application paths based on real-time performance.
AVC’s embedded monitoring agent measures transaction times and latency for TCP applications. And it measures packet loss and jitter for voice and video applications. The data can be used for path selection, monitoring, and troubleshooting application performance.
IWAN uses AVC to measure the performance of applications for QoS as well as path control.
AVC supports rich visibility into end-user connectivity and application performance.
