Fluke Networks' OptiView XG v10 First to Simultaneously Stress Test the Network and Diagnose Issues in Real-Time

EVERETT, Washington, Apr 17, 2013 (PR Newswire Europe via COMTEX) -- -- Company also announces new iPhone App that lets users see network problems from the palm of their hand EVERETT, Washington, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fluke Networks [ ls=PRxg10&lsd=PR] today announced a new version of the OptiView(R) XG v10 Network Analysis Tablet [ ls=PRxg10&lsd=PR] that allows users to simultaneously stress test and diagnose network problems in real-time, as well as a new iPhone App, called HeadsUp(TM) XG [ mt=8], that receives instant notifications of issues identified by the tablet.

(Photo - []) Simultaneous testing is key to quickly isolating intermittent network performance issues, a top concern of more than 75 percent of IT professionals.* With the OptiView XG v10 stress-test capability, network engineers can inject test traffic to measure network performance, examine the traffic's impact on infrastructure, spot ongoing problems and/or expose many intermittent issues, and map out exactly where problems are located. The new functionality is compliant with International Telecommunications Union standards**, and works in conjunction with a peer or reflective endpoint, such as another OptiView XG or LinkRunner, allowing users to measure end-to-end network performance in terms of bandwidth, latency, jitter, loss and availability up to 10Gbps.

"The new capabilities of the OptiView XG have a huge impact both when we're diagnosing problems and when we're rolling out new services like VoIP," said Tommy Pruitt, vice president of operations at Pruitt Communications. "It reduces our problem resolution time by isolating root cause in minutes instead of hours or days, and allows us to eliminate having to use a variety of tools. Whether trying to find an existing problem, or when trying to validate performance, OptiView XG v10 gives us a strategic advantage and helps us resolve the issue immediately." "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." The HeadsUp XG App, now available for free in the iTunes store [ mt=8], alerts administrators when an OptiView XG identifies a problem and gives them instant access to critical information about issues on the network, speeding response times for urgent problems. The App can also be used to browse multiple OptiView XG units and drill down into problems on the Problem Log. Via a synchronization capability, resolved problems cleared on the App will also be cleared on the OptiView XG and vice versa.
