Q: Is this free from control hub?
A: For the cloud agents, you need a ThousandEyes account. For the enterprise agents all the Webex orgs have this option, you only need to have a ThousandEyes account and the Webex App 42.7 and later.
Q: Are there plans to add multicast as a test in ThousandEyes?
Q: What kind of packets are generated by AST? Are they TCP/ICMP packets or they RTP packets?
A: ICMP packets for the Webex integration for now.
Q: I have a Webex Video device facing audio/video call quality issues (packet loss/latency) while joining a Webex call or joining a Microsoft Teams call, can we use ThousandEyes to troubleshoot that issue?
A: For Webex video devices we have a feature request to have endpoint agents available, for now we only have available the cloud agents and endpoint agents for windows and mac machines.
Q: Why did ThousandEyes remove thousandeyes.webex.com?
Q: Can Thousand Eyes tool be used to troubleshoot call quality issues with Webex devices?
A: Do you mean VoIP or PSTN? For PSTN it's not possible because the traffic would use the telephony providers' side and the metrics would be available for the telephony providers. For VoIP experience, it is possible by using this monitoring options.
Q: The current offering on internet insights doesn't give the most up to date data for the webex CDN. Is that the same as using the test show in the slides?
Q: For AST, saw the option in TE; however don't see the ability to set alerts for AST
A: That is right, currently there is a feature request to have this available in the future. There is no ETA or warranty it would be applied but this feedback was provided to our developers team already.
Q: Are there any plans to integrate ThousandEyes Endpoint agent into Cisco Secure Client?
