MONTREAL, October 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Live AMS-IX network data empowers customers to optimize connectivity based on traffic, performance, and price
For AMS-IX, network performance transparency and service level agreement (SLA) assurance recently reached a new milestone. The Dutch IP traffic exchange platform-located in Amsterdam and used by large ISPs, fixed and mobile operators, content providers and other communications companies across the world-is now able to publicly publish its own connectivity performance. This transparency is made possible using technology from Accedian, the end-to-end network performance experts, to monitor and measure the performance of the AMS-IX IP network.
AMS-IX is using Accedian's solution to provide customers with service level agreement (SLA) reports and real-time statistics, through a web-based portal. This empowers users of the traffic exchange to check if their SLAs are being met, and to verify reliability of the platform.
- AMS-IX conducted extensive research performance measurement methods for an IP-based exchange network, before choosing Accedian's solution.
- AMS-IX's ability to publish network performance in real-time underlines their exceptional SLAs.
- AMS-IX's SLA-backed interconnect services AMS-IX are becoming increasingly critical to their customers-who include direct connection and preferred-peering-to-cloud providers.
- The Accedian solution continuously measures detailed network performance, including microsecond-precise latency, packet loss, and link capacity.
- Uniquely, Accedian's integrated monitoring measures metrics in each direction, with microsecond accuracy.
"Enterprises' connectivity needs are continually expanding and evolving, and IT infrastructure is increasingly cloud-based today. Direct connections and peering between enterprises and cloud providers are also more vital than ever for access to critical applications, and for wider business performance as well. Accedian's real-time monitoring solutions give us in-depth visibility of how our network is performing, which allows us to be completely transparent with our customers. This level of visibility and control is a significant reason why AMS-IX is an interconnect leader."
