Ixia’s Hawkeye is an active network monitoring solution that can be deployed across entire company locations and campuses, acting as the eyes and hands of the IT and network operations teams to monitor Wi-Fi connectivity, coverage, and end-user services over Wi-Fi networks.
XRPi: YOUR ON-SITE WI-FI EXPERT
XRPi probes connect to Wi-Fi networks in remote locations and run scheduled verification of the Wi-Fi network health together with proving services like speed, latency, DNS, web browsing, voice, Skype for business, and Office 365 over Wi-Fi.
XRPi probes dispatched into your network will send real-time test results to Hawkeye central consoles in network operations centers (NOCs), data centers, or cloud networks for analysis, alarming, and reports.
XRPi-reported metrics will provide end-users perspective on the connectivity and quality of services running on Wi-Fi. When issues are detected, remote endpoints can be instrumented to run diagnostics and localize defaults, reducing mean time to diagnose and repair problems.
Without truck rolls, you can proactively find out about issues affecting your end users and quickly isolate likely root causes and identify what is to blame: Wi-Fi, WAN connectivity, applications, etc.
SOFTWARE ENDPOINTS: TURN END-USERS INTO TROUBLESHOOTERS
Deploy performance endpoints into end-user devices by installing Hawkeye app on their smartphone, tablet, or Windows PC and take remote control of their device to perform ad-hoc verifications of their service over Wi-Fi.
Quickly isolate issues with running remote tests and find out about specific performance characteristics of the end-user terminals connected to Wi-Fi
* Proactive detection of customer-affecting problems: be the first to know about problems in the network
* Reduce site visits: avoid unnecessary truck rolls by running remote Wi-Fi troubleshooting
* Track Wi-Fi coverage over time: be able to detect potential service degradations based on trend analysis
* Verify Wi-Fi connectivity: identify user connectivity issues to Wi-Fi and root cause (bad coverage, DHCP, IP connectivity…)
