Network Visibility – Synthetic Monitoring
In the quest for optimal user experience of applications, network teams are constantly challenged to ensure all applications and services traversing the network do so at a sufficient quality at the lowest cost possible. Today’s networks are highly distributed on the one hand and the traffic traversing them is highly secure through end-to-end encryption on the other hand. BYOD, Wifi, WFH, and IoT also make the edge of your network less defined than ever whilst connectivity to, and the location of a particular service could mean traversing SD-WAN, being hosted in the Cloud, or using local internet breakout.
Keysight Hawkeye provides a single pane of glass into your network’s ability to support networked services no matter where the services are hosted, how users are connected, and what network connectivity or path is chosen at any point in time. It does so by synthetically emulating network traffic and measuring its performance through the network through distributed monitoring endpoints, supporting both node to node as well as Real Services tests through the network. Network Path Discovery also aids in identifying how traffic traversed the network when multiple paths are available, especially in Software Defined Networks.
