Join other ISPs in deploying SamKnows measurements inside your existing or next generation CPE that you provide to customers. Deploying our lightweight tests across your network can provide you with unparalleled visibility of end-user performance.
A UK ISP started receiving complaints of intermittently slow downloads and delays when connecting to websites during peak hours. However, speed tests from the same customers via web-based tests did not show any degradation in performance. Through analysis of results collected by SamKnows Whiteboxes, the ISP was able to determine that there was a peak-hour increase in latency (a very significant one for some customers) that was ultimately driven by localised congestion. Speed tests using many parallel TCP connections were masking the effects of this, which was harming real application performance.
SamKnows was selected by BT in 2012 to build out a nationwide deployment of Whiteboxes in BT homes.
This deployment provides BT unparalleled visibility into their end users' Quality of Experience (QoE). BT also leverage this panel to test new products, benchmark themselves against competitors and identify operational issues.
