Intelligent Last-Mile Management

Cato gives customers the peace of mind that their network can effectively support the business while offloading the resource-intensive task of continuous network availability monitoring from the customer’s IT team.

The network is the technical foundation of every business. Smooth business operation and continuity require 24×7 monitoring of the enterprise network for transport failures (blackout) or a prolonged degradation of network performance (brownout). Effective and proactive monitoring requires continues network analysis, dedicated tools, and collaboration with last-mile providers in different countries, languages, and time zones.

Cato Networks provides a new Intelligent Last-Mile Management service (LMM), which will run 24×7 as part of Cato’s Global Network Operations Center (NOC).

Cato’s LMM ensures customers’ networks are running in a predictable and consistent way by initially profiling every managed link for normal traffic patterns. Cato is using its wealth of real-time network analytics data to rapidly detect and capture the full context of every network problem. The Cato NOC, with proper customer pre-authorization, works with local ISPs to troubleshoot and resolve any network outage or degradation. Beyond the last mile and the ISP equipment, Cato monitors end-to-end network behavior, including latency, loss and jitter, between branch locations to the Cato PoPs, and the reachability and performance of key Internet destinations.  

Cato gives customers the peace of mind that their network can effectively support the business while offloading the resource-intensive task of continuous network availability monitoring from the customer’s IT team.
