Catchpoint offers 4 types of testing products:
Backbone: Backbone nodes are located in Tier 1 data centers and ISPs all around the globe. Backbone testing allows you to test performance and quality without a lot of the noise and data pollution present on the public internet. This can help you locate performance problems that are within your control faster.
Last Mile: Last mile testing helps you understand performance from consumer ISPs. Each last mile node is installed on a dedicated machine in the US, UK, or France and gives you a better idea of what real world performance looks like to an end user.
Wireless: As more and more people connect to the web via wireless devices it is important to understand their specific performance problems. Catchpoint monitors mobile performance via 60+ 3G and 4G LTE nodes throughout the United States. Each node location connects to multiple carriers.
OnPrem: OnPrem Agent lets you monitor your applications from the first mile within your data center. This helps you understand connectivity from your branch offices to the cloud and SaaS services they connect to.
