Internet Outages Map

About the Internet Outages Map

The Internet Outages Map is an at-a-glance visualization of global Internet health over the last 24 hours, showing the frequency of Internet outages as seen across ISP, public cloud and edge service networks. You can use this map to quickly understand if an ongoing outage in a provider you rely on is the source of an issue you are experiencing.
  • Network Telemetry Data

    The Internet Outages Map leverages aggregated network telemetry data from ThousandEyes' global sensor network to detect network outage events taking place across ISP, public cloud and edge service networks like CDNs, DNS and SECaaS.

  • Algorithmic Outage Detection

    Network outages are algorithmically detected based on billions of measurements to hundreds of apps and services crossing thousands of Internet Service Providers each day. Outages are events with 100% packet loss in the same AS during a period of time, and where there is a certain level of impact on the infrastructure, sensors and services.

  • Geographic Visualization

    When terminal nodes are identified in provider networks, they are visualized on the global map above in near real time, so you can always have an at-a-glance understanding of significant outages in the regions you care about that may be impacting you, your customers or your employees.
