Traditionally, Application Performance Management (APM) is usually associated with solutions that instrument application code. There are two fundamental limitations with such associations. If instrumenting the code is what APM is all about, then APM is applicable only to homegrown applications for which access to code is available ...
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.
