The ability to view assets from a single-pane-of-glass in our present environment is the most valuable feature at this point-in-time. That role will be changing in the short term. View full review »

The topology correlation for layers one, two, three, and four significantly reduces the number of false positives (>98% ratio). By using Spectrum, we did not need to configure the network knowledge about redundancy. Rather, it learns the latest correlation between the monitored elements automatically. By adding the alerting from the Broadcom performance management tools, a comprehensive list of alerts is created. As a service provider, we added views for our customers to inspect their sub-domain in our whole network, which reinforces a high level of trust within the relationship to our customers.

I have found the cross-analysis feature to be the most valuable. The many alerts you get have an impact on the connectivity, so you need a very good correlation for layer 1, layer 2, layer 3, and layer 4, layered at the understanding of the technology, which locates the spectrum. It's really unique in this type of solution. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the auto-discovery, which is nice because you don't have to do anything to add a new component. It will just supervise the links. View full review »
