When to use Backbone and Broadband Nodes

backbone-monitoring-from-smartphone
Monitor beyond the firewall

Monitor a digital service from outside of the infrastructure it resides in.

Digital experience monitoring minus the noise

Analyze performance excluding the variations brought in by the end user’s network.

Alerts you can trust

Trigger alerts based on variations in performance or availability.

Eliminate alert fatigue

Improve signal to noise ratio

Reduce false positives and false negatives by definitively knowing whether performance issues are happening on the backbone.

Filter out noise

Get a view of end user experience without the noise of shared bandwidth contention, mobile dead spots, and other issues on the local access link to external customers.

Trust your alerts

Trigger alerts based on variations in performance or availability.

Extensive global node coverage

node-location-map
Compare performance with multiple providers per geography

Pinpoint performance degradation from over 200 cities and across over 160 ISPs.

Troubleshoot from more locations

Utilize the world's most reliable node network that is three times larger than any other monitoring provider.

Evaluate and optimize network routing

Detect network instability and identify BGP changes, route hijacking, and network flapping.

“We decided to move to Catchpoint because it was the best solution for the volume of transactions, as well as the ISPs, locations, and the types of delivery that Flashtalking deals with. Catchpoint had the largest geographic footprint, as well as the availability of ISPs to satisfy a wide variety of needs.”
Joseph Keiling, Director of IT
