NetScout Systems has unveiled a fully web-based network application and management system. The company is now offering capacity planning and service-level management, which is in direct competition with Concord and Infovista.
Jon Axon, area vice president of international sales at NetScout, said: "The service-level management and capacity planning are new products which came as a result of the acquisition of NextPoint earlier this year."
"NetScout acquired NextPoint because the company wanted to expand its already strong portfolio in real-time networking," said Axon. "They had already won a number of important awards in the US in technology, had good synergy and did not overlap our products."
The acquisition also allowed NetScout to broaden its product offerings and gain access to new markets, as well as recruit many highly skilled engineers.
Axon pointed out that there were no redundancies at NextPoint and that all the staff at the company were transferred to the nearby NetScout headquarters.
The nGenius product is the first joint venture between the two companies, but Axon said there will be more new product releases in January.
