Priced-well, easy to scale, stable, and straightforward to set up

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and Ixia Hawkeye is one of the products that we implement for our customers. We have a customer in Central America that is in the telco industry and needed to have greater visibility. When they tried it, they loved it and bought it.

Pros and Cons

  • "Our customer was happiest with the price of this product."
  • "Ixia has one flaw, which is that they do not print the license code on the paper licenses that are shipped to the customers."

What other advice do I have?

So far, this product is doing exactly what it is promised to do. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

A user-friendly tool that makes it easy to deploy real flow through the network

What is our primary use case?

I use it mainly for proof of concept for our customers, for example, to validate the internet service with different applications. The most common application is Netflix throughput and checks on the website.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the deployment because it's very easy to deploy real flow through the network."
  • "The customization of tests and even the results can be improved."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Ixia Hawkeye because there are some KPIs that are very useful. You can see how you work, how your network is, and if there is a problem with certain sites. It's a useful tool, and I recommend it. On a scale from one to ten, I would give it a ten.
