Ixia announced that the company’s network assessment and monitoring platform – Hawkeye – has been certified by Microsoft as an IT Pro Tools Solution for Skype for Business.

Ixia’s Hawkeye enables network readiness assessments for Microsoft Skype for Business by actively injecting traffic and measuring the performance and associated user experience over the network.

Ixia's Hawkeye enables customers to rapidly deploy new services with pre-launch assessments for business applications (e.g. VoIP, UC, video conferencing, business critical applications) over wireline and wireless, including cloud migration projects.

With Hawkeye, enterprise customers and their service providers can proactively monitor, manage, and measure the health and performance of their entire Microsoft Skype for Business pre-launch assessment.

Ixia’s Hawkeye proactively generates and analyzes synthetic network and application traffic to assess how applications and services will perform from an end-to-end perspective. Certification under Microsoft’s IT Pro Tools Program for Skype for Business is expected to further bolster confidence among partners and enterprise clients.

Hawkeye’s coverage 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 help validate that complex business-critical services will be available 24x7.

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.
