VoIP and Unified Communication apps, such as Microsoft Teams, are more sensitive to network performance than other applications. So whether you’re working from an office, or your own home, you want to make sure your VoIP and UC apps are performing as they should be.

Whether you’re an IT pro or not, you can easily monitor Microsoft network performance and quickly find network problems affecting Microsoft apps.

Here's how... Choose a Network Performance Monitoring Software
A network performance monitoring software, like Obkio, monitors end-to-end network performance with more detail than you can ever achieve manually. Deploy a Microsoft Agent
To monitor Microsoft apps, you need to use a Public Network Monitoring Agent hosted within Microsoft’s network.
Public Monitoring Agents monitor network performance between your standard Monitoring Agents and the Microsoft Azure platform.

  • Choose the Right Agent Location

Microsoft applications like Teams and Office 365 store customer data in all of Microsoft's global cloud locations.
When monitoring the performance of these apps, choose a Public Monitoring Agent deployed in the Data Center located closest to the Microsoft Data Center closest to you.

  • Deploy More than 2 Agents
    We recommend deploying a minimum of more than two Agents to more accurately compare data.
    For example, if you’re monitoring Microsoft network performance between your head office and your Internet Use one Agent in our Head Office & Agents to monitor Internet performance (example, an Azure Agent and an AWS Agent). Start Monitoring!
    Once you’ve set up your Microsoft Public Monitoring Agent & created monitoring sessions, you're all set!
