Hawkeye enables enterprises and service providers to proactively monitor
CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 13, 2016--
XXIA), a leading provider of network testing, visibility, and security
solutions, today announced new Wi-Fi readiness capabilities that have
been added to the company’s network assessment and monitoring platform - Hawkeye™.
Delivering innovative services such as Voice over IP (VoIP), unified
communications, and cloud migration of business services is critical to
an organization’s survival. However, Wi-Fi issues in accessing these
services can seriously compromise a company’s network performance and
required business services. Effective management of Wi-Fi connectivity
is therefore a serious business, so much so that, according to IDC,
the market for cloud-managed WiFi is growing, and will be worth $1.7
billion by 2018.
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.
“Enterprises are introducing new business applications and unified
communications, and are migrating servers and services to private and
public clouds, which can impact their ability to deliver on their
customer expectations,” stated Tim Courtenay, managing director, ATIO
telecoms division. “Hawkeye provides effective information relating to
the availability and performance of the key services our customers
deliver over an IP network. Extending Hawkeye’s technology coverage to
Wi-Fi will provide them with greater control over this critical aspect
of the customer experience, eliminating any potential issues associated
with their network and Wi-Fi access.”
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 is a key component of Ixia’s growing network
visibility portfolio which includes network taps for access to
security and management devices, network packet brokers for amplified
security and efficient monitoring, and bypass switches for automated
