Cisco aims to further strengthen its network and application performance with ThousandEyes’ visibility features. By utilizing ThousandEyes’ services, customers now have an end-to-end view of the digital delivery of applications and services over the internet. This combination enables customers to pinpoint deficiencies and improve network and application performance across enterprise and cloud networks.
ThousandEyes is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) company that uses synthetic monitoring to measure network performance. The product includes elements of network tomography for loss and latency, route analytics to visualize BGP advertisements, DNS monitoring, VoIP monitoring, website monitoring for HTTP and HTTPS, and SNMP device polling.
Cisco will incorporate ThousandEyes’ capabilities across its core Enterprise Networking and Cloud, and AppDynamics portfolios.
