Ideal supplement to the existing network management
ROA enables the planning, monitoring and optimization of static and dynamic routes in data networks and thus ideally complements existing network management systems. Network operators get a good overview of the condition, status and utilization of their infrastructure with SNMP tools. Likewise, NetFlow monitors give them insight into traffic flow. But it is only with ROA that they can see the paths (routes) of data packets in the network and thus estimate or weight the effects of path changes.
Recognize cause and effect
With ROA you get information about the cause of a path change, e.g. an unstable interface or the total failure of a line. In addition, ROA shows you the impact of this defect on the rest of the infrastructure, because now the data traffic has to be handled additionally by other lines. Longer transaction times and associated complaints from users or customers are a typical consequence that you can avoid with the help of ROA.
Satisfy customers in a dynamic environment
Dynamic protocols such as OSPF switch independently to new paths in failure situations. ROA helps to quickly resolve the negative effects of this switching, such as increased latency. ROA thus supports conventional fault management solutions by providing additional information about the effects.
