l DATA SHEET l E N T E R P R I S E Product Overview As part of the nGenius ® Service Assurance portfolio providing end-to-end network visibility, nGenius ® PULSE is an always-on and automated solution for cloud, hybrid, and virtual environments that helps customers manage the user experience and isolate issues between corporate infrastructure and the variety of cloud and other service providers assets they use. nGeniusPULSE also correlates the health of the supporting infrastructure with end user experience, ensuring that the most critical elements of the business eco-system are connected and working. With automatic and continuous active (synthetic) testing of business services availability and performance, nGeniusPULSE provides 24x7 monitoring of critical applications and services from anywhere in the enterprise - in the data center, at remote offices or branches, for remote workers, and more. The nGeniusPULSE solution is centrally-managed and deployed in a data center on a hardware or virtual server appliance. Sensors, called nPoints, are deployed anywhere throughout the organization to run active tests – over wired or Wi-Fi connections, and send results to the nGeniusPULSE Server. From the Server, results are displayed in an intuitive interface that includes dashboards, drilldowns, and alerts, as well as easy-to-use configuration and administration and an API for data extraction or configuration. nGeniusPULSE can also be deployed as part of NETSCOUT Smart Edge Monitoring, via NETSCOUT's Edge Adaptor, to capture the packet-level data from synthetic tests. This packet data is analyzed by nGeniusONE to provide critical visibility into end-user experience.
