Catchpoint announced a further expansion of its Global Monitoring Network to 825 locations extensively covering backbone, broadband, cloud, last mile and wireless infrastructure.

Catchpoint’s ongoing expansion, with 75 nodes added in 2019, highlights its commitment to improving digital experiences by monitoring from as many geographic, network and infrastructure vantage points as possible. This approach runs counter to some performance monitoring vendors which track user experiences only from public cloud locations.

“The breadth and diversity of our infrastructure make us the system of record for end-user experience telemetry. Our expansive footprint is necessary to protect and advance enterprise customer and employee digital experiences,” says Mehdi Daoudi, CEO and co-founder of Catchpoint. “Organizations are facing an increasingly diverse and mobile user base, requiring a solution which can support that scale. Catchpoint is committed to the growing need for ‘more eyes in more places’ because limiting monitoring locations to the public cloud does not reflect real user presence and behavior.”

Now covering 200 cities worldwide, Catchpoint focused its recent deployment of new monitoring nodes in Mexico and China. Catchpoint now has a total of 140 nodes in mainland China, comprising 16 percent of its global footprint - vital as businesses increasingly target the Chinese market.

Powered by its advanced synthetic and real-user solutions for both customer and employee experience monitoring, Catchpoint offers organizations a unique advantage with more monitoring locations in geographic proximity to end users.

In addition to monitoring critical backbone locations, Catchpoint’s 133 public cloud locations offer the largest regional cloud provider coverage, with nodes on AWS, Google, Oracle, Tencent, AliCloud and others. New cloud nodes were added in Mumbai, Dubai, Stockholm, Sydney, Johannesburg and other locations in Europe and the United States.
