  11. 11. PUBLIC 11 • Connectivity is managed by the Global Connectivity team with operational support from two external vendors. We are part of the Generic IT Services & User Experience (GIT-UX) team • Team of 12 FTE’s (3 in Bangkok, 4 in the US and 5 in The Netherlands) • Working Agile within all departments • Main focus on Total quality, Zero defects and First time right IT Within NXP
  12. 12. PUBLIC 12 Our Journey With ThousandEyes • The original driver came from complaints on O365 – Especially Skype – A significant portion of users were reporting poor audio quality • We realized we did not have an end-to-end view of the user experience • We were reliant on vendors to report on their performance • Unable to respond to the assumption that bad performance was always a network based issue
  13. 13. PUBLIC 13 Deploying ThousandEyes • We finally have a complete overview • At last we have ammunition if somebody states ”The network is slow” • Detect what your vendors didn’t detect • We shared our experience with other IT departments. • Our engineering department is using it to monitor their critical applications • Our application support department uses it for troubleshooting • Endpoint agents are used for specific cases • Integration with ServiceNow has been tested and is ready for production
  14. 14. • In the past IT had it’s focus mainly internal. We have decided to share more information with our customers and started to build an internal Connectivity Portal • Combining all relevant output from different tools into a single portal • Demo on our portal Using ThousandEyes Reports
  16. 16. PUBLIC 16 Way Forward • Deploy enterprise agents on all sites • More cloud agents for our external services • Extend alerting to more services • Automatic ticket creation towards ServiceNow • Standard reporting/monitoring for other departments

  21. 21. Hamburg-Kaohsiung LAN Issue Detected Network path visualization Issue is in the Hamburg LAN 99% packet loss issue
  22. 22. R&D “DoorsNG” Application Not Reachable Cause: Routing Loop NXP-XFSL Packet loss 100% DoorsNG application not reacheable
  23. 23. WEB Application Troubleshooting Web application fault Result: Thousandeyes found 16 Web application faults in the R&D “DoorsNG” Application that are now corrected by IBM. The network was not the problem Thousandeyes shows detailed breakdown of user waiting time accessing a WEB application
  24. 24. PUBLIC 24 Microsoft Skype Issues in Austin • Many skype complaints in NXP site Austin • Installed a TE Enterprise Agent in Austin to investigate • In one hour after the install we already found 5 possible causes We want to highlight two: (1) Internet Service Provider issue towards Office 365 cloud (2) Microsoft Skype Egress point
  25. 25. (1) Microsoft Skype ISP Issue Austin Level 3 ISP issue, 30% packet loss Packet loss occasion
  26. 26. PUBLIC 26 (2) Microsoft Skype Egress Point Issue Austin • NXP was connected to Microsofts Skype Dublin Backend • Microsoft just implemented the multiple egress points for Skype • Since then, about 20-30 % of the Skype calls in Austin had serious issues: Bad audio quality • We found that we hopped between Skype backends in Iowa, Texas and…
  27. 27. (2) Microsoft Skype Egress Point Issue Austin MS Skype Instance Canada! Latency > 100 ms
  28. 28. Lessons Learned • It took a while before we interpreted all TE test results well • TE Endpoint Agent usage needed “works-council” approval • ThousandEyes test data is also useful outside of IT • Manage TE tests carefully, duplication of tests is very easy and is causing EA overload • We have used the support of ThousandEyes many times • ThousandEyes Support personnel is very knowledgeable and helpful
