SLA Monitoring — Now Available on the Edge

Whether you're a large corporation or a network service provider, connectivity is the heartbeat of the business. SLAs are increasingly tough to meet, and expectations around quality of service (QoS) are ever rising.

However, it is hard to meet those expectations without monitoring last-mile connectivity — threatening your ability to satisfy customers and maintain network access across branch sites.

In a landscape of costly, complex monitoring solutions, IxProbe is scalable and streamlined — enabling you to:

  • Take control of branch SLAs
  • Find and fix issues faster with active/synthetic monitoring
  • Reduce costly truck rolls
  • Deploy at enterprise scale with fast, simple installation

What Is IxProbe?

A One-Of-A-Kind Solution For SLA Monitoring

An inline monitoring probe, IxProbe combines real-time performance monitoring and synthetic quality-of-service (QoS) testing via Hawkeye — putting you in control of your network's edge. With faster troubleshooting and SLA verification, you can ensure peak QoS across your branch offices.

Keysight Hawkeye – The Source of Truth

Synthetic Performance Monitoring for Your Remote Sites

When it comes to monitoring, passively waiting for live network data only gets you so far. If you want to find connectivity issues or performance problems before your subscribers do, you need to be proactive.

That's why every IxProbe integrates seamlessly with Hawkeye, Keysight's active network monitoring platform. By sending a persistent pulse of simulated application traffic to your branch sites, you won't just know not if the link is up, but if your network is capable of supporting the applications you depend on.

Moreover, Hawkeye's central controller gives you an integrated dashboard to monitor your data (inline and active) and control your devices at scale.

Monitoring the Last Mile

A Challenge for Service Providers and Enterprises Alike

Monitoring branch sites is important, but not as easy as it may sound. Service providers often partner with peers for last mile delivery — sacrificing visibility and control to deliver outside their geographic footprint.

A solution for the last mile, IxProbe is designed to sit between a service provider's cable modem/NTU and a client's firewall/router. By tapping directly into your edge sites, you get an end-to-end view of your network's performance — putting you in the driver's seat.

Designed for Deployment at Scale

Engineered for Easy OSS Provisioning

For service providers and enterprises alike, scalability is critical. Monitoring branch-site SLAs can potentially mean relying on hundreds, or even thousands, of devices. The last thing you need are tools that are hard to deploy and costly to install.

We built IxProbe with scalability in mind. Designed to easily integrate into your existing operations support system (OSS), IxProbe makes deployment quick, easy, and painless. All you have to do is dispatch a pre-configured device from your warehouse, mail it to a client site, and have the branch manager plug it in. No costly truck rolls or on-site technicians required.
