Key Features


  • Visibility into WAN user experiences with application-based context
  • End-to-end user impact analyses based on WLAN, LAN, and WAN telemetry data
  • Automated identification and correction of gateway misconfigurations and faulty interfaces
  • Health insights into Session Smart Routers, SRX Series Firewalls, and WAN links
  • Simplified configuration and deployment of Session Smart Routers

Features + Benefits

Monitor and enforce service-level experiences (SLEs) using key metrics on application response times, WAN link status, gateway health, and other network conditions. Gain insights into how these metrics impact end-user experiences and use them to proactively identify the root causes of any service degradation.
