WAN Monitoring
This guide goes through the process of enabling and disabling of monitoring for your WAN Service via the Hosted Network Partner Portal

Overview

Through the Hosted Network Partner Portal you can enable monitoring of your WAN Service. Monitoring with this function will allow you to view ICMP response times of your service and track the most recent outages.
The WAN health monitoring can be used for all connectivity services with a static public IP and is a great way to identify underlying problems caused by internet outage, helping partners to troubleshoot issues faster. If an end-customer has VoIP or website issues, the monitoring tool can help correlate and pinpoint the main cause, giving partners an idea on what needs to be fixed.
You can follow the steps below to login and access the monitoring function in the partner Portal.
