Keysight Technologies has expanded the Ixia visibility portfolio with Hawkeye Express, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) extension to the Hawkeye network assessment and monitoring platform.

Hawkeye Express enables customers to monitor and test cloud applications on any third-party public cloud platform to ensure a consistent quality of experience (QoE) for end users.

“As enterprises migrate their applications to the public cloud, they are faced with diminishing control of their application performance,” said Recep Ozdag, VP, Product Management for Keysight’s Ixia Solutions Group. “The Hawkeye Express active monitoring solution provides visibility and troubleshooting capabilities that provide users access to their cloud and WAN services. Using Hawkeye Express allows customers to truly understand network and application performance to ensure a consistent quality of experience for their end users.”

Hawkeye Express is a cloud-based SaaS solution based on active, synthetic monitoring that delivers visibility into public and private infrastructure and services.

Hawkeye Express enables users to:

- Gain visibility into infrastructure between sites – by deploying endpoints on each site, they can monitor network performance between sites using performance assessments, regular reporting and alarms when services degrade

- Monitor cloud access infrastructure continuously – they can monitor and troubleshoot problems at third-party service providers networks by performing access verifications and pinpointing to problems

- Understand capacity of a network or equipment – they can verify equipment and infrastructures in the lab or in the network using software or hardware endpoints as traffic injectors and benchmarking equipment and traffic models.
