Nyansa; A Clearer Picture From a Data Gathering Powerhouse at #MFD3

Nyansa made a return to Field Day presentations last month, presenting at Mobility Field Day. Mitch Dickey looks at how Nyansa’s Voyance analytics platform is able to ingest massive amounts of data, creating a full client picture of wireless performance and experience. Mitch seemed particularly interested in how Voyance can help bring visibility and sense to the increasing volume of IoT devices on networks.

CTS 141: Analytics Data & Wi-Fi

Rowell Dionicio gives an overview of what he saw from Nyansa at Mobility Field Day this year. Nyansa Voyance gathers together a massive amount of information across the network to represent a full client experience within their dashboard. All of this helps drill down to the root cause of problems, and surface actionable solutions.

Analyzing analytic offerings

Sam Clements reviews some of the recent analytics solutions, including many from Mobility Field Day earlier this year. He looks at solutions from Nyansa, Mist Systems, Meraki, Aruba, and Cisco.

Nyansa Brings a Social Aspect to Network Analytics

Lee Badman has seen quite a bit of Nyansa’s Voyance analytics platform, both at Mobility Field Day last month as well as in use over the last year. The most recent ability shown by Nyansa is the ability to share non-anonymized performance baseline data with selected parties and peer institutions. Voyance has always excelled at gathering a large amount of WLAN data and establishing performance metrics with perspectives. Providing the capability now adds a social aspect to the platform for additional context.

Nyansa; A Clearer Picture From a Data Gathering Powerhouse

Mitch Dickey looks at what Nyansa presented at Mobility Field Day earlier this month. The company provides an analytics platform that “delivers a crazy amount of data and insight into your network.” Mitch looks into how the company presents and makes sense of all the data they collect, how they approach putting agents on client devices, and how they handle IoT devices. Overall, Mitch thinks they can be a player in the analytics market, provided the company molds how they present the data collected to their clients, and not overwhelm them with noise.

Figuring Out What Bothers Me About Wi-Fi and “Analytics”

Lee Badman heard about a number of wireless analytics solutions at Mobility Field Day last week. But one thing stuck in his mind. Outside of the merits of any solution over another, the underlying assumption behind many was that an analytics solution was needed because the wireless network is in some way being managed poorly. For Lee, WLAN problems often come from problems in vendor code, not something an admin can really be proactive about. This isn’t to say that these analytics solutions aren’t needed, but Lee wants them put in the proper context of why WLAN problems most often arise.

Mark Your Calendars: Mobility Field Day 3

In this video, Rowell Dionicio discusses coming back for his third Mobility Field Day. He discusses what he expects to hear from each of the presenters, including Arista, who recently acquired previous presenter Mojo Networks. There are a lot of new faces on the delegate side, and Rowell is looking forward to the discussions and perspectives that they will bring.

Management Frame Detection?

Samuel Clements considers the acronym MFD. What could be better than Management Frame Detection? Mobility Field Day of course! He’s heading out to the event later this month. In this post, he reviews the announced presenters and what he expects to hear about from each. Remember, you can follow along with all presentations during the event on our live stream, and engage with the conversation on Twitter using #MFD3.

Nyansa Voyance at NFD18

In this post, Aaron Conaway takes a look at Nyansa’s Voyance, which he saw at Networking Field Day last month. This network analytics solution focuses on user experience. He focuses on how the Voyance Crawler sits inside a network, looking at a variety of data points, from wireless controllers to API calls and more. This is correlated to get a full understanding of how a user experiences a network, and provides suggestions on how to remediate issues.

Network Field Day 18 – Some Preparation and Review

Greg Ferro does his homework for Networking Field Day 18, giving a brief explanation of his thoughts and the facts about each presenting sponsor. He also goes over what themes he think will be consistent talking points throughout the event, such as Multi-cloud, Kubernetes, and SDN.

CTS 105: Measuring User Experience with Voyance

Rowell Dionicio and the Clear to Send podcast take an updated look at Nyansa’s Voyance network analytics platform. Since initially seeing this at Mobility Field Day in July, Rowell reviews how the platform visualizes network information and can help you get to root causes of issues faster.

Voyance – Visibility into the User Experience

Keith Parsons wrote up some impression of Nyansa’s Voyance networking monitoring solution, after speaking with their Director of Product and Technical Marketing, GT Hill. GT presented for Nyansa at Networking Field Day last year. Keith reviews how Voyance helps track network changes, its recommendation engine, and visibility into user experience.

Nyansa Takes Analytics Beyond the Controller

Lee Badman is currently doing a long term evaluation of Nyansa’s Voyance analytics platform. The company recently updated its User Performance Monitoring in Voyance to include an API interface to better integrate into workflows, adding a remediation engine, and much more. Lee thinks this is an interesting, and necessary, evolution of the platform.

It’s Probably Not The Wi-Fi

After Mobility Field Day, Tom Hollingsworth has one important takeaway, “it’s Not The Wi-Fi.” So often problems are blamed on the wireless network or firewall, etc. when that actually was not the case. Tom argues that the solution to this issue is accelerating the time to diagnose and resolve by involving professionals that manage systems that are actually down and telling users to make sure it is actually a wireless issue before proclaiming that its the wireless.

Here comes Mobility Field Day 2!

Brennan Martin previews each Mobility Field Day presenting company and talks what he is anticipating from each. This includes more info on Mist System’s BLE beacons and APs, Nyansa’s work in turning large amounts of Wi-Fi client behavior data into informative insights, and Mojo Network’s plans for Wi-Fi on open hardware. Brennan will be posting additional articles post-event to recap the presentations.

One week to MFD2: What’s in store

Less than a week from Mobility Field Day, Jake Snyder introduces what he will be looking forward to from each presenter. This includes Mist Networks’ approach to big data analytics, Cape Networks’ cloud based wireless network monitoring, as well as the future plans of Nyansa, Mojo Networks, and Netscout.

PQ Show 106: Whitebox, SD-WAN & More – An NFD14 Wrapup

It’s a Networking Field Day delegate super show on the latest episode of the PQ Show podcast! Greg Ferro, Drew Conry-Murray, Eyvonne Sharp, and Kevin Myers all give their impressions from Networking Field Day from January. SD-WAN, Whitebox networking, analytics, and orchestration are all on the table. Give it a listen and check out our video coverage for more details.

Nyansa Measures Network Performance Using Mobile Devices As Sensors

Drew Conry-Murray shares his thoughts on Nyansa, who presented at Networking Field Day last month. The company has an interesting approach to analytics, they use measure user experience by using mobile device endpoints as sensors, effectively turning any phone, laptop or tablet into a sensor. These on-prem metrics are then sent to Nyansa’s cloud for further analytics and to establish baseline network performance. This can be used to easily assess problems when they deviate from these baselines, and also let you see how performance of your network stacks up to others in your vertical.

Nyansa’s Comparative Analytics

Rich Stroffolino reviews Nyansa’s networking monitoring solution from Networking Field Day last month. He was really impressed how the solution allowed you to measure not just objective measures like latency, speed, and packet loss, but also compare performance among similar network configurations. In a crowded networking monitoring space, it’s a key differentiator that really allows Nyansa to stand out.
