Keysight Streamlines SD-WAN Adoption with Hawkeye


Keysight Streamlines SD-WAN Adoption with Hawkeye

Software-defined wide area networks, or “SD-WANs,” can reduce telecom costs, lessen the burden on operations teams, and improve application performance — if deployments go according to plan. Several challenges came into play when test and measurement market leader Keysight Technologies embarked on a global initiative to replace leased lines with broadband service from three global Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

Read the case study to learn how Keysight used the Hawkeye monitoring solution from Ixia to overcome initial and ongoing SD-WAN challenges including:

  • Qualifying ISP circuits on a global basis
  • Ensuring application quality before and after migration
  • Managing new vendor relationships and SLAs
  • Proactively monitoring voice and video quality

Learn more about SD-WAN adoption and why Keysight’s Senior IT Systems Architect Joe Giegel says, “Other monitoring solutions that are deployed centrally can monitor what’s happening at other locations, but they don’t give us the same insight into the actual user experience with applications.”
