This case study provides a deep-dive into CSX’s new rugged, small form factor deployable network monitoring and analysis solution used to analyze CSX’s wayside PTC network. The system utilizes enterprise technology from Net Scout that integrates with CSX’s enterprise level network monitoring and is packaged into a small transportable kit enabling rapid, in-field spot monitoring at a moment’s notice. The speakers will share requirements and environmental constraints, the solution architecture and detailed design and lessons learned. Attendees will learn how to build similar systems for themselves.
1. Review a case study for networking troubleshooting, diagnostics at the wayside locations ensuring integrity and availability of PTC networks
2. VoIP and RoIP performance monitoring at the edge of the network
3. Environmental constraints in deploying technology at wayside locations
4. Methods to deploy enterprise commercial off the shelf (COTS) solutions for ruggedized operational IT solutions at the edge of the network
