Frontier Airlines: A Case Study in Application Performance
By Network Physics
Frontier Airlines is a low fare airline that provides service from its Denver hub to 47 destinations in 29 states, spanning the nation from coast to coast as well as in seven cities in Mexico and one in Canada. Frontier´s MPLS WAN is a critical resource for the airline. It connects the company´s data center in Denver to offices and airports throughout North America. It supports both important customer-facing applications, such as seat assignment, electronic ticketing, curbside and online check-in, as well as all the logistical and management applications necessary for running a major airline. But even as the network was rapidly expanding to support Frontier´s business objectives, performance was slowly degrading, and the company´s traditional SNMP device-based management system couldn´t give the IT staff the visibility they needed to meet their Service Level Objectives (SLOs).
