About Us

Infrastructure-independent. Continuous measurements. End-to-end visibility.

Ennetix delivers Network Performance Management, purpose-built for multi-domain networks. With the increasing adoption of Private and Public Clouds in IT infrastructures, critical resources required for application or service delivery are distributed across multiple data centers. Each data center, and the network infrastructure that connects it to other data centers, may have very different performance characteristics, and can potentially be under the administration of a different entity. A new approach is required to gain granular network performance visibility in such multi-domain networks and to ensure that the end-to-end infrastructure delivers the performance levels needed for highly responsive application or service delivery.

Ennetix offers a unique Network Performance Management service based on its Performance Measurement Overlay (PMO) technology. Ennetix PMO is independent of the underlying networking infrastructure and provides continuous measurement of end-to-end performance of all network paths, including those in public domains.


Ennetix performance management solution is called XNet.

XNet is a scalable, secure, and multi-tenanted cloud-based platform designed for storing, analyzing, and serving large datasets in a responsive and cost-effective manner.

The XNet solution architecture consists of two key components:

XNet Cloud

Houses the core intelligence of the XNet platform.

XNet On-Site Management Entity (XOME)

A data collector deployed inside the customer network.


Continuous measurements. Advanced analytics. Central data repo. Intelligent visualization.

Continuous Performance Measurements

XNet continuously measures the end-to-end performance of all network paths and all network segments, using the Performance Measurement Overlay augmented by granular data it collects from a variety of sources in the network.

Centralized Repository of Measurement Data

XNet serves as a cloud-based repository for performance data collected from multiple locations in the customer’s hybrid cloud or multi-domain network.

Advanced Network Analytics

XNet applies advanced data correlation algorithms on the network and performance data it collects from disparate sources to generate network state, health, and performance indices that are easy to understand and track over a period of time. Using these algorithms, XNet produces insights that are predictive, contextual, and actionable.

Context-Aware Visualization

XNet provides visual analytics that is context-aware. The visualization represents network state, health, and performance in a holistic manner by enabling visual correlation of significant events.
