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.
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.
EtherScope nXG’s AutoTest feature that consolidates many different diagnostics into one easily executable test, can now be run in “Periodic Mode” t
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?
NetAlly Announces Availability of Four Major New Capabilities for its EtherScope nXG Network Analyzer
“We continue our unprecedented pace in expanding the all-in-one versatility of the EtherScope nXG with new Wi-Fi survey, network monitoring, media validation and remote collaboration features,” says James Kahkoska, NetAlly CTO.
While automated testing can uncover a wide variety of problems on its own, not all problems can be found using this method so the tools should also be flexible enough to provide additional diagnostic capabilities
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
While 802.11ax can co-exist with older technologies, it can only deliver the promised gains if a careful migration strategy is put in place.
It’s true that Wi-Fi network documentation isn’t the most fun thing to do. In fact, it can be such an eye-rolling task that engineers in
Packet drops and jitter can greatly reduce the quality of a Voice Over Wi-Fi call. When troubleshooting Voice Over Wi-Fi call quality issues the following
