PULSensor Virtual

The ongoing transition from traditional hardware installations to the cloud has increased demand for software-based products, which can share a common, virtualized server platform and flexibly scale.

PULSensor Virtual are software-based performance measurement probes, which technically and economically fit various service provider use cases where virtualization is required. The PULSensor Virtual portfolio deploys the same, market-leading performance monitoring and SLA management technology as the PULSensor Appliance. It is fully managed by the PULScore service assurance platform, which provides clear visibility to all measurements and analytics both in real-time and as history reports.


With PULSensor Virtual at the core of your virtualization strategy, you can cost-efficiently and smoothly build the software-defined and closed-loop automated network of your future.
