Extends Breadth of Network Intelligence with Deployment of Enterprise Agents Directly on Cisco Routers at Branch Offices
Ahead of Cisco Live in Las Vegas, Nevada, Cisco's annual IT and communications conference, ThousandEyes announced support for Cisco Enterprise Routers. This support enables organizations to extend the breadth of network visibility and insights with ThousandEyes Enterprise Agents that use containers to run directly on Cisco equipment at branch offices. With this announcement, ThousandEyes becomes one of the first technology partners to certify support for application hosting on Cisco Integrated Services Routers (ISR) 4000 Series and Aggregation Services Routers (ASR) 1000 Series, part of Cisco's move to enable additional capabilities from trusted third parties directly on Cisco routers.
"ThousandEyes' support for Cisco Enterprise Routers means that our customers can gain additional network visibility and insight at branch offices with minimal deployment effort," said Kiran Ghodgaonkar, director of Enterprise Routing Marketing at Cisco. "Being able to monitor the performance of external and internal networks at branch locations, remote offices and distributed organizations is key to maintaining high levels of application performance and user experience. Openness is a key principle of Cisco Digital Network Architecture and it is exciting for Cisco customers who want to take advantage of our application hosting capabilities using ThousandEyes."
ThousandEyes delivers unique insights into and across an enterprise's network with vantage points derived through a combination of Cloud Agents and Enterprise Agents. Support for ThousandEyes Enterprise Agents that use containers to run directly on Cisco ISR 4000 series and ASR 1000 series routers enables organizations to rapidly deploy and manage these agents without additional complexity or hardware, such as a services blade or a co-located server rack. Network teams will benefit from accurate visibility of network operations and performance, as well as the impact on critical applications and services at branch locations, such as retail stores and medical offices.
"Cisco and ThousandEyes customers can now benefit from network intelligence with expanded vantage points through the deployment of smart agents that run directly on Cisco routers," said Sanjay Mehta, Chief Marketing Officer at ThousandEyes. "We're excited to be one of the first to certify support for application hosting on Cisco Enterprise Routers using containers. This support enables network teams to more quickly gain visibility of application delivery all the way to branch offices, which is more important than ever in this era of Internet-delivered cloud services, distributed WANs and increasingly borderless networks."
