19th December 2016 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

ixia-logo-Mouseworld-NowBangalore, December 19, 2016: Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA), a leading provider of network testing, visibility, and security solutions, today announced new Wi-Fi readiness capabilities that have been added to Hawkeye – the company’s network assessment and monitoring platform.

Delivering innovative services such as Voice over IP (VoIP), unified communications, and cloud migration of business services is critical to an organization’s survival. However, Wi-Fi issues in accessing these services can seriously compromise a company’s network performance and required business services. Effective management of Wi-Fi connectivity is therefore a serious business, so much so that, according to IDC, the market for cloud-managed WiFi is growing, and will be worth $1.7 billion by 2018.

Ixia’s Hawkeye, which proactively generates and analyzes synthetic network and application traffic to assess how applications and services will perform, now includes proactive monitoring of Wi-Fi readiness. Expanded coverage in Hawkeye spans wide area networks (WAN), local area networks (LAN) virtual private networks (VPN) and cloud access to wireless LAN (WLAN) architectures. As a result, Hawkeye can validate that complex business-critical services over Wi-Fi are available 24×7.

“Enterprises are introducing new business applications and unified communications, and are migrating servers and services to private and public clouds, which can impact their ability to deliver on their customer expectations,” stated Tim Courtenay, managing director, ATIO telecoms division. “Hawkeye provides effective information relating to the availability and performance of the key services our customers deliver over an IP network. Extending Hawkeye’s technology coverage to Wi-Fi will provide them with greater control over this critical aspect of the customer experience, eliminating any potential issues associated with their network and Wi-Fi access.”

Hawkeye simulates application traffic and sends key performance metrics to a central console enabling IT professionals to easily detect, diagnose, and fix network performance issues before they impact end users. Hawkeye also includes a cloud option that can be run with the central console, hosted from a single site or data center, and accessed publicly by teams at multiple locations.

Hawkeye is a key component of Ixia’s growing network visibility portfolio which includes network taps for access to security and management devices, network packet brokers for amplified security and efficient monitoring, and bypass switches for automated failover protection.
