Keynote Systems and OPNET Enter Alliance

Keynote Systems and OPNET Technologies announced a strategic alliance that focuses on maximizing the performance and availability of web applications for corporate enterprises and government agencies worldwide. Key initiatives of the alliance include technical collaboration and coordinated marketing and sales efforts that emphasize each company's best-in-class technologies.

The companies said their joint offering enables proactive, 24x7 visibility into the performance of critical applications from multiple geographic locations using a combination of real user traffic and synthetic transaction monitoring.

Keynote contributes synthetic transaction monitoring, alarms, and user experience monitoring from more than 2,500 locations outside the enterprise network, using the most popular browsers and mobile devices.

OPNET contributes real end user experience monitoring from within the enterprise network enabled by deep packet inspection, and tracing capabilities at the code level, enabled by low-overhead monitoring of thousands of metrics across all application tiers. OPNET's APM technology can distinguish between Keynote-generated synthetic traffic and real user traffic reaching production systems.
