Short Take: Extreme's new software monitors networks

Extreme Networks has released new software that allows service providers and businesses to monitor the health of their networks. The software, called ServiceWatch, can scan the network and ensure that services, such as email, Internet and software access, don't go down. It can also scan the length of time it takes for people to access Web pages, for example. If there's a slowdown or problem, the software can notify network administrators or be programmed to fix the problems by itself.
