TCPWave's Switch Port Utilization Report explores the network frontier


Unlock network insights with TCPWave's Switch Port Utilization Report.

As networks expand and the number of connected devices increases, it becomes crucial to maintain an up-to-date inventory of device information, including switch port utilization. Tracking switch ports manually can be time-consuming and challenging for network administrators. This whitepaper focuses on the importance of switch port utilization reporting in maintaining network efficiency, enhancing security, and meeting compliance requirements. Our Switch Port Utilization Report offers insights and solutions to address these challenges effectively.

Our Switch Port Utilization Report provides a comprehensive overview of the entire network, enabling users to monitor the status of all switch ports from a single interface. This report scans the organization's network to identify available ports and provides IP address details connected to each port. We support multi-vendor switch integration, including CISCO, Huawei, Juniper, Arista, and more, ensuring compatibility across various network infrastructures.
