SANFORD, ME--(Marketwire - Aug 28, 2012) - Plixer International, Inc., a leading provider of NetFlow-based network management solutions and a recognized thought leader in NetFlow and IPFIX development, today announced it will join Cisco to collaboratively deliver a series of informative webinars on NetFlow technology. The first of the series, titled Cisco Performance Monitoring with Flexible NetFlow (FNF) Reporting, will be held on Tuesday, September 4th, at 9am, 11am and 4pm EDT. The webinar will reveal tips and tricks to improve the health of packet flows traversing switches and routers.

"NetFlow and IPFIX have evolved into powerful network security and management tools," said Michael Patterson, CEO and co-founder, Plixer International. "There are two primary factors in flow technology that separate the innovators from the vendors who have fallen behind in this technology. Both are explained in this webcast: By combining NBAR2 and Performance Monitoring FNF technologies, Plixer has enabled Scrutinizer to now report on key metrics such as round trip time for reported applications such as WebEx, Skype,, and many more, all of which often hide behind the same TCP port 80. No other vendor currently supports this."

Plixer's strategic partnership with Cisco has enabled the company to be the first and only vendor to support many of the advanced and unique Cisco and other vendor exports. This, combined with Plixer's 100 percent focus on flow technologies, resulted in thousands of satisfied customers seeking a best-of-breed, scalable flow collection, reporting and analysis solution. 

The upcoming Plixer and Cisco webinars series will cover such key flow management topics as:

  • Unique attributes of next generation NetFlow and IPFIX solutions
  • Unique reporting capabilities when mixing FNF technologies
  • How performance routing can optimize connection times and priority traffic
  • How to gain hop by hop visibility of a flow as it traverses the network

Webinar attendees will obtain new insights into how to accurately diagnose application performance issues with detailed reports and analysis into cloud services and, in-house rich-media applications such as voice, video and data communications.
