OutagesIO, or “Outages, Independently Observed”, means that problems and performance are measured from each location’s perspective, not from a centralized monitoring location only.
OutagesIO.com is a service that allows individuals, businesses, and enterprises to monitor internet connections and providers for outages, disruptions, and slow speeds with alerts in as quickly as 30 seconds.
The service can be used by network operators to find weak points in addition to their current monitoring solutions. It can also be used by organizations that need accountability for Internet outages and disruptions.
By using the service, users can track and document disruptions to internet services with reports on the frequency and duration of these disruptions and who was responsible no matter if reported or not.
In addition to its use as a tool for monitoring internet service, there are several other potential applications for OutagesIO.com’s technology:
