NetAlly Releases Private Edition of Link-Live™ Collaboration, Reporting and Analysis Platform

On-premise/private cloud deployment for NetAlly’s Link-Live service provides same functionality for organizations with “no cloud” policies.

Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA – July 26, 2022 – NetAlly today announced the availability of a containerized version of their Link-Live cloud service, for licensed on-premise server or private cloud installation. Until now, organizations with “no cloud” policies were unable to take full advantage of the many capabilities in Link-Live.

Serving as a centralized site survey, test results, analysis, and tester management system, Link-Live transforms team workflows with the ability to quickly and easily log, document, and report test activity from all NetAlly hand-held network testers and analyzers.

“Link-Live has evolved from a basic repository and reporting engine for test results from our instruments to an in-depth network analysis and management platform,” says James Kahkoska, NetAlly CTO. “Over time,” Kahkoska adds, “the addition of WiFi and Bluetooth site surveys, network topology mapping, in-depth analysis, and real-time collaboration tools has made Link-Live a key part of our customers’ network management arsenal, but one that could not be used by public cloud-averse organizations.”

Link-Live Private is available as downloadable software with an accompanying annual subscription. Utilizing Docker Compose, it is easily installed on Linux-based servers, and is has no limitation in terms of number of users, test results, or reports for NetAlly’s LinkRunner® 10G, AirCheck™ G2, and EtherScope® nXG instruments.

Once the instrument is connected to the Link-Live server, test results are automatically uploaded to the dashboard for project management, analysis, collaboration and reporting. Users also have the option of uploading additional files, screenshots, images, profiles, packet captures, location information, and comments.
