PoE Issues… How to Find and Avoid Common Problems

Today, PoE is powering many mission-critical devices, including VoIP systems, Wi-Fi networks, surveillance systems, digital lighting, building access, IoT devices, digital signage, etc. As with bandwidth, PoE has also increased, evolving from 12W to 25W.

Wi-Fi Connectivity Problems? Here is why…

As network professionals, we have all encountered, the dreaded Wi-Fi-is-not-working complaints. You’re peacefully getting some work done at the office and then out of nowhere someone comes in and starts complaining about not being able to connect to the wireless network, about getting disconnected from the wireless network all the time, about not being able to connect to the internet, and so on. These are very common complaints, and all of them are very annoying since figuring out the root cause of these common wireless network problems can be very time-consuming and sometimes difficult.

Different Ways to Tackle Remote Troubleshooting – Step 3

Your evaluation of the on-site support situation will guide you in creating a plan and strategy. Ask yourself these key questions: Is there any IT staff on-site? What is their expertise level? What is the criticality of that site?

Differences between Wi-Fi Throughput, Bandwidth and Data Rates

if you want to validate Wi-Fi network performance you should always measure your network’s throughput. The best way to do so is by using a test tool that will allow you to measure your throughput against an endpoint on your network. An example of a commonly used endpoint is iPerf, which is a software application that can be used to measure incoming traffic and generate outgoing traffic from any device on the network

Validating Remote Worker Connectivity & Performance

Without remote technical staff and the inability to travel to troubleshoot, it’s difficult to isolate problems caused by bandwidth issues and packet loss. In this short video, we’re going to show how to use the Network Performance Test client software and the EtherScope nXG to diagnose the performance of links to/from remote sites.

Different Ways to Tackle Remote Troubleshooting – Step 1

organizations with no IT support on-site or lower-skilled technicians, we’ve worked hard to develop different technologies and methods with simplified workflows and remote visibility that will help you to get the job done – fast.

NetAlly – COVID-19 Operational Update

Multiple states have enacted ‘stay at home’ orders effective immediately to curb the spread of COVID-19. Under the various orders, governors of these states have mandated that all residents are to ‘remain at home’ and only essential businesses may remain open to provide critical services.

Understanding PoE Terminology

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that enables Ethernet cables to carry electrical power to devices such as Wi-Fi access points, IP cameras, VoIP phones, signage, and other networked devices along with data

PING Usage and Limitations

Ping is a protocol used to verify device availability, response time, and packet loss in a network by sending ICMP (Internet Control Messaging Protocol) Echo Request frames to an end network device and listening for the Echo Reply frames from the device. In other words, if the end device receives and returns the Ping, then you have connectivity to the device.
