Problem: Preventing Network Problems and Ensuring a Consistent User Experience


Network services are critical to an organization’s survival in today’s highly IT-centric and distributed environments. However, bottlenecks, latency, Wi-Fi issues, and other hard-to-pinpoint network issues can seriously compromise a company’s network performance, business operations, and brand reputation.


Whether you are operating your own network or a service provider delivering network services, having a reliable way to continuously verify network performance and digital experience of your end users is key to ensure business continuity.


Solution: Proactively Monitor Network Performance with Active Monitoring


Hawkeye quickly and effectively validates network performance, isolates problems, and proactively detects issues by running scheduled verification tests on any site using wireline or wireless connections. Using a combination of hardware and software agents called performance endpoints, Hawkeye simulates application traffic and sends key performance metrics to a central console for fast action. The agents provide both remote-site end-user perspectives on network performance — offering network managers a proactive way to detect, diagnose, and fix issues. Measurements range from network quality to user experience, enabling network operators to improve overall uptime and detect network performance issues before they impact end users.


Easy to deploy and simple to use, Hawkeye helps IT ensure peak network performance with proactive insight.
