Introducing the Network Next Analytics Portal
Updated: Dec 9, 2020
Network Next makes premium network performance accessible to everyone, without locking customers into a single vendor.
But how do developers really know their players are getting better network performance on Network Next?
Enter the Network Next Analytics Portal.
The Network Next Portal provides game developers with complete visibility into their player's online experience, both on and off Network Next.
Data that developers can see with the Analytics Portal includes:
This visual screen shows where players are realizing network performance improvements around the world from Network Next and also allows game developers to drill into smaller geographic areas, such as North America, Europe or the Middle East.
2) All Sessions
This screen enables game developers to drill down into the network performance data to see every player’s experience, even players not using a Network Next route. We also store historical session data per-player for 90 days, making it possible to see the complete history of a player's online experience over time.
3) Session Tool
The Session Tool allows game developers to drill into various aspects of each player’s session. The network performance improvements players are realizing -- lower latency, jitter or packet loss -- are displayed in easy-to-read graphics.
All data shown in the Analytics Portal is available in text format for download and further analysis.

In order to see data from their specific game’s traffic, they must sign up on the portal and install the Network Next open-source SDK into their game.
