National Instruments (NI) is a supplier of test, measurement, and control solutions making it possible for engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges. National Instruments relies heavily on their IT teams to ensure their employees and company are able to conduct business. Part of that effort belongs to the network team, which ensures the network paths are optimized and can handle the traffic between offices and the outside world. Increasingly, the company realized that they were experiencing performance issues with the applications running on their networks and that traditional network monitoring and WAN optimization tools were not giving them the comprehensive visibility they needed.
