Alpine Patrol

Alpine Patrol EMS provides simplified WAN intercept via a single pane of glass for managing NetQuest appliances and automated cyber applications.

Simple WAN Monitoring

Alpine Patrol simplifies WAN monitoring by generating graphical representations of the optical network infrastructure and the devices used to access these networks.  Patrol provides a persistent monitoring approach ensuring critical surveillance is maintained via automated responses to network provisioning changes.

Alpine Patrol’s graphical interface for network discovery results and its rich array of long-haul & metro network statistics help to create a cloud-based network analytics tool that is simple to understand and react to.

All Optical Switch Management

Alpine Patrol enables monitoring access to large scale fiber optic networks by managing industry leading all optical switches.  Optical switches from HUBER+SUHNER Polatis can be managed directly from Alpine Patrol.

Automated Fiber Scanning Application

NetQuest’s Alpine Patrol’s Fiber Scanning Application automates the scanning of large groups of communications cables to generate persistent network survey information across hundreds to thousands of optical fibers. Alpine Patrol leverages management of Polatis all-optical switches to connect individual fibers to NetQuest Interceptor auto-discovery engines and report changes to signaling structures over time by raising real-time alerts.

Optical Network Analytics

Cyber threat hunting missions are empowered to efficiently monitor network infrastructure via Alpine Patrol’s optical transport network analytics application.  The analytics application provides both current and historical tracking of the transport network’s physical and virtual attributes via a user configurable dashboard view.  By leveraging Alpine Patrol’s advanced analytics, administrators can quickly locate and respond to threats.

Analytics For Optical Transport Networks

Tech Note: Today’s long-haul and regional networks are rapidly evolving in order to handle the growing bandwidth demands being placed upon them.  As these networks evolve, network service providers are adopting new transport technologies including SD-WAN, DWDM, OTN and 100G+ coherent in order to make the most efficient use of the deployed fiber network.  Those responsible for network surveillance must understand how the network is evolving in order to ensure critical monitored traffic is not being dropped and the proper monitoring solution is employed.
