MONTREAL, March 30, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- --- Why Obkio Vision ---
Businesses are increasingly moving to cloud-based applications, which increases the reliance on the Internet to deliver WAN traffic. Although people are more and more dependent on the WAN, it's always been a weak spot for IT people when troubleshooting problems.
This puts the responsibility of troubleshooting on the ISP, which creates a lot of back-and-forth to resolve the problem.
"We worked for telcos for 20 years and realized that most people had a lot of difficulty troubleshooting problems related to their WAN, on the Internet." - Pierre-Luc Charbonneau, VP of Sales & Marketing @ Obkio
To help people identify and troubleshoot Internet problems more easily, Obkio released 3 innovative Traceroute features in Obkio's app (live, triggered and historical). When they noticed people had trouble interpreting the results of the traceroutes themselves, the Obkio team wrote a free 32-page Complete Guide to Traceroutes explaining how to interpret the results.
But, their goal has always been simplicity. So, to simplify the process even more, Obkio worked for a year to create Obkio Vision.
"Obkio Vision is the tool we always dreamed of! Vision is an advanced Visual Traceroute feature that runs continuously to precisely localize problems in your network. We wanted to offer this tool for free because we wanted to be able to help the community without creating any barriers." Jean-François Lévesque, CEO @ Obkio
--- Obkio Vision Highlights ---
Still today, Traceroutes are the most popular tool to troubleshoot network problems. To modernize and simplify traceroutes, Obkio Vision empowers users by interpreting real data for you and identifying Internet and WAN problems more effectively.
It collects data about problems like packet loss and latency that users can share with their ISP - so your ISPs support can't just tell you to reboot your modem.
Some of Obkio Vision's next-generation diagnostic features include:
- Quality Matrix graphical diagram to view multiple destinations over time.
- Network Map with a visual representation of the network paths to the destinations and its own Quality Score that helps pinpoint network issues.
- Traceroutes to measure metrics like packet loss, latency and jitter.
