xNET 2.0 — FAQ

What is xNET?

xNET is the industry’s leading Artificial Intelligence Powered Network Performance Analytics Software that delivers real-time network visibility and quick drill-down diagnostics to localize mission-critical issues and provide actionable insights to achieve optimal network performance.

How does xNET work?

xNET is delivered via a SaaS platform. A light-weight machine is deployed in your operating environment that transmits specially-crafted synthetic probes to collect performance data over cloud infrastructures, and, collects and pre-processes data such as NetFlow, SFlow, Syslogs, etc. The resulting metadata is then crunched through proprietary Artificial Intelligence Inference Engines to yield insights that are accessible through a visual interface or APIs.

What will xNET do for me?

Whether you are managing a digital enterprise, operating a web-based service, or managing a network that spans either public, hybrid or cloud infrastructures — xNET will help you to map out what’s happening in your network in real-time and improve user-experience, based on detailed, current as well as historic information.
