Fluke Networks has unveiled a tablet designed to provide more information on any network issue, as well as an iPhone app to give IT managers real-time updates on network issues uncovered by its tools.
The tablet, called the OptiView XG v10, allows network engineers to plug the device into any point in the network and gain insights into traffic levels, infrastructure issues, and find out where problems are occurring, Fluke claimed.
It can also measure network performance for bandwidth, latency, jitter and loss on networks running speeds of up to 10Gbit/s. The firm said the new device would help over-worked network managers better keep pace with the demands of their organisations.
“Until now, test solutions provided only results and couldn’t do both network performance testing and problem isolation in the same test, or even the same solution,” said Dan Klimke, OptiView XG product manager at Fluke Networks.
“OptiView XG gives IT professionals one comprehensive test to speed the process.”
In conjunction with this, the firm has also launched a new iPhone app called HeadsUp XG. This is designed to give administrators instant access into any issues the Optview XG tablet identifies from their workers so they can react instantly to any urgent issues.
The app enables staff to browser the responses from multiple OptiView XG tablets and offers detailed insights into the issues being thrown up with its Problem Log display (pictured below).
