We're just getting ready to deploy Prime Infrastructure 2.0 and are wondering if the Assurance piece in Prime Infrastructure is the same as in the Prime Collaboration 10.0.

Hi Brad,

They are different ,though some of the feature looks same:

In Cisco Prime Infrastructure ( Assurance ) piece cover the below piece :


Network-based end-user experience monitoring

• Detailed analytics dashboards to monitor end-user experience of business critical applications and their key KPIs.
• Site-based tracking of user endpoints.
• Time-based filtering of data lets users narrow the issue down  to a particular timeframe or to look at related network/application  events given a timeframe in which the problem was observed.

Flexible NetFlow Version 9 support and advanced troubleshooting

•          Flexible NetFlow templates and raw records collection.
•          Standard NetFlow support with the ability to update/add new fields based on heuristics.
•          Trigger packet captures on multiple NAMs based on common software filters.
•          Access to packets, flows, and MIBs data for detailed real-time and off-line analysis.

Configuration/monitoring templates

•          Predefined  collection plans are provided to collect application response time,  traffic analysis, and Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) metrics,  reducing the complexity in setting up data sources and KPI collection.
•          Threshold templates are provided to monitor key indicators and alert the operator/engineer of any anomalies.

Dedicated dashboard for voice, video monitoring, and analysis

• Analysis of voice, video, and RTP traffic in general is available at branch or individual user level.
