DX Spectrum Review

Good overall network views, but overly complicated to configure

Valuable Features

Overall network topology views. Device connection status. Alerting on multiple provider devices.

Improvements to My Organization

CA Spectrum enables us to have an overall view of the state of our network. We are able to view device health and be notified of issues prior to the user reporting a fault.

Room for Improvement

There appears to be no intelligence within Spectrum itself, for example if we were to move a network device to a different switch port, it will see the neighbor as being available, but the link / switch port as down. Configuration of new events and alerts is overly complex.
