3) It includes a flexible and visual reporting tool that gives users the flexibility to run a test and analyze single instance results or group of tests results to quickly identify problematic links. Users can run trend reports on historical data and analyze network behaviors to detect anomalies. It allows users to export and send reports via email to share results between teams.

Brief Overview

The Hawkeye Active Network Assessment and Monitoring Platform helps network and security operations professionals learn proactively where their applications are failing to perform, before their users do.

Hawkeye helps operations teams monitor their Wi-Fi network from consumer perspective with advanced Wi-Fi monitoring tools which saves staff time through leveraging an industry-leading library with 100’s of application tests that enable assessment of network throughput, class of service, unified communications, WI-FI connectivity tests. It allows operations to understand the performance of your entire network and services using cost-effective endpoint probes such as IxProbe. Hawkeye testing includes injection of real traffic into a network continuously based on schedules, between nodes or in a mesh to ensure that applications are running well and securely.

Hawkeye is a Web-based platform for multi-user access, test scheduling, data storage, and real-time analysis, with additional endpoint hardware. Users can deploy endpoints with turnkey hardware or software endpoints. Users also can verify virtual infrastructure with software and VM endpoints. Finally users can automatically install endpoints within complex network topologies that include network address translation (NAT) and firewalls.
