Discover the next generation of mobile application performance management
Traditional application performance management (APM) tools have given network managers little, if any, visibility into what causes performance problems in mobile apps. And yet, they're often caught between frustrated users complaining about slow loading times and developers insisting their application architectures are pristine. As usual, the network gets the blame.
But, as we explore in this issue of Network Evolution, more vendors are getting serious about mobile APM -- developing dashboards and controls more granular than ever for mobile apps.
Also in this issue, find out what's behind the biggest news in Ethernet: a 25 Gigabit Ethernet specification being developed by a vendor consortium, which plans to ship 25 Gbps network devices by 2016. We also dive into new ways software-defined networking can be used in wireless networks.

As more businesses move to mobile platforms, enterprises have to make sure their mobile applications perform like they're supposed to. Vendors are trying to address that need with more granular mobile application performance management (APM) tools.
If you blinked, you may have missed it: A consortium formed this summer to develop a 25 Gigabit Ethernet specification, with plans to have 25 Gbps switches shipping in two years. Here's why the industry is in such a hurry.
SDN proves it isn't just for the data center, as wireless LAN vendors consider new architecture options for improved interoperability and performance gains.
In this Q&A, an engineer at the Ryan Seacrest Foundation describes how his organization is using Polycom video conferencing in pediatric hospitals to improve the quality of life for young patients receiving care there.
Columns in this issue
Networking pros have little insight into why a mobile app misbehaves, but they can be sure the network will be blamed. Newer mobile APM tools with more granular visibility and controls aim to identify and resolve problems faster.
