Ixia announced new Wi-Fi readiness capabilities have been added to the company’s network assessment and monitoring platform - Hawkeye.

Ixia’s Hawkeye, which proactively generates and analyzes synthetic network and application traffic to assess how applications and services will perform, now includes proactive monitoring of Wi-Fi readiness.

Expanded coverage in Hawkeye spans wide area networks (WAN), local area networks (LAN) virtual private networks (VPN) and cloud access to wireless LAN (WLAN) architectures. As a result, Hawkeye can validate that complex business-critical services over Wi-Fi are available 24x7.

Hawkeye simulates application traffic and sends key performance metrics to a central console enabling IT professionals to easily detect, diagnose, and fix network performance issues before they impact end users. Hawkeye also includes a cloud option that can be run with the central console, hosted from a single site or data center, and accessed publicly by teams at multiple locations.

Hawkeye enables customers to:

- Rapidly deploy new services with pre-launch assessments for business applications (e.g. VoIP, UC, video conferencing, business critical applications) over wireline and wireless, including cloud migration projects.

- Automate day-to-day IT tasks needed for managing complex network and application environments across offices, campus networks, and virtual data centers.

- Control network and services performance with cost-effective software endpoints or turnkey probe distribution that delivers expansive coverage.

- Proactively detect problems and implement tests with clear demarcation points to locate network and application issues for quality of experience (QoE) against expected service levels.
