New Innovations Unveiled at Cisco Live 2024

Monitor Internet Service Provider Performance

Whether you're a digital business with revenue-producing websites and mobile apps, or an enterprise implementing new SD-WANs and branch dedicated Internet access (DIA) to apps running in IaaS or SaaS clouds, Internet access and transit is a critical dependency. Without insight into peering and transit from key ISPs, you can't ensure the connectivity you require to run your business. Unfortunately, legacy ISP monitoring tools and software don't offer visibility outside your internal networks into Internet connectivity and performance.

Using a combination of active and passive techniques, ThousandEyes enables you to monitor ISP connections, pinpoint specific ISP traffic links with high latency, and identify interfaces with loss across your entire service delivery chain. Continuously monitor Internet connections for ISP outages and other disruptions to Internet connections with hop-by-hop visibility across your layer 3 traffic paths, along with BGP information that shows you whether your routes are reachable.

How to Monitor Your Internet Connections

ThousandEyes can help provide global visibility with pre-deployed Cloud Agents that are located in nearly 200 cities around the world and can monitor and map connectivity to your external-facing web properties and apps from the vantage point of your customers and users.

To get visibility to or from a site that you manage or control—such as a data center, branch office or IaaS cloud—ThousandEyes Enterprise Agents can also be deployed to monitor outbound connectivity through your ISPs to the external services and servers that your users access.

Once you've identified the source of an issue and the responsible provider, you can save and share site performance or outage data with the ISP to resolve your ticket quickly and mitigate user impacts.
