An Accurate, Easy-to-Use, Easy-to-Deploy Network Performance Tool

We provide Hosted VoIP Services to our customers, so having the ability to quickly and easily determine internet service performance is crucial, and no company that we have found offers the flexibility, accuracy and ease-of-use of Obkio.

Pros

Accurate internet performance measurement and monitoring Ease of use Ease of deployment Support for Raspberry Pi, Windows and Linux Detailed breakdown of performance issues using weighted scoring

Cons

The ability to generate detailed historical reports is missing, but I believe they are working on that. We would like to be able to have more options for exporting the current monitoring view with the titles and labels.

Reasons for Choosing Obkio

We looked at many options, but there was nothing close to Obkio for meeting our needs. We also like that they are responsive and easy to work with regardless of the issue or question.

Reasons for Switching to Obkio

PingPlotter has a service that only support Windows, and we don't want to be forced to deploy Windows appliances due to cost and complexity. Also, their solution was not reliable and didn't provide the same level of accuracy or low overhead.

Exceeds our expectations

We started looking for a benchmarking tool for our SDWAN projects, by the time we implemented Obkio we were already using it for 3 projects and Operations. The ease of use and data-rich interface helps our team resolve complex performance issues in no time.

Pros

Obkio is so user friendly and has so much power in simple views that has not only met our expectations and needs but is giving our organization added value in our Operations and Project teams.

Cons

The nice part about Obkio cons is that you can discuss these with the Obkio team and they will build those features for you.

Reasons for Choosing Obkio

Honestly apart from the power the tool has, the Obkio team is fantastic. The demo’s, the optimization of our environment and even simple day-to-day conversations were fantastic. They understood our problem and they put an effort to resolve it!

Obkio Network Monitoring

We have used Obkio in a variety of situations, both for managed service customers as well as network assessment projects. Non technical users at sites are able to quickly install the physical sensors in their offices allowing rapid assessment of WAN performance. With a few sensors we were able to diagnose a complex VPN based WAN servicing 2000 independent offices. We also were able to assess issues in a traditional MPLS architecture and provide actionable measurements to the service provider. Throughout the deployment and analysis process we received excellent support from the Obkio team.

Pros

Obkio was very easy to deploy and use, provides detailed network performance visibility without needing access to network equipment.

Cons

There are very few things I don't like about Obkio, however since I need to fill in this field The only issue we've had is with cost, especially for a network with a larger number of sites. The growing feature set is improving the value proposition over time and it's easy to adjust the size of your deployment monthly based on your needs at a specific time.

Very helpful troubleshooting tool

Obkio has been part of multiple projects with us and their support team was always there to help and work odd cases with us.

Pros

Ease of access and lots of data to work with when troubleshooting a problematic network. The Obkio device integrates easily onto the customer network and provides instant reports.

Cons

Not a con but more of a feature request; Have a more graphical dashboard that can be installed in a support center environment that will instantly flag any issues and show them on screen.

Reasons for Choosing Obkio

Support and ease of use.
