Fluke Networks Enterprise Solutions broadens support for 802.11ac standard

Fluke Networks Enterprise Solutions is rolling out new 802.11ac functionality in two of its most popular portable network analysis and troubleshooting tools, the OptiView XG Network Analysis Tablet and the OneTouch AT Generation 2 Network Assistant. 

The appetite for Wi-Fi is growing faster than the infrastructure to support it 
According to the Wi-Fi Alliance, a non-profit consortium of companies that develop Wi-Fi products and services, more than 42 per cent of the world’s mobile data traffic and more than 90 per cent of the world’s tablet traffic ran over Wi-Fi in 2014,2. At the same time, the number of network-connected devices continues to grow at a staggering rate of nearly 20 per cent by 20163 , according to independent research firm Infonetics. 

The OptiView XG is the first tablet specifically designed for the network engineer. It automates root cause analysis of both wired and wireless network and application problems, saving the engineer significant time and effort. The new version of OptiView XG comes with the full suite of AirMagnet Mobile tools already built in, letting XG users leverage the industry’s premier wireless network planning, deployment, troubleshooting, and security solution in combination with the market leading wired analysis capabilities. 

The OneTouch AT is an automated handheld tester that network technicians use to troubleshoot both Ethernet and Wi-Fi network performance in real time by validating connectivity, service availability and path performance. 

Both products are rugged, portable devices, letting IT teams connect, analyse and troubleshoot issues from anywhere—from their desk, in the data centre or at an end user’s location—using a single, integrated wireline and wireless portable tool. This lets network engineers and technicians alike: 
·        reduce IT costs, simplify workload, and minimise user complaints with instant answers and guidance on security, performance, and voice issues 
·        simultaneously validate wired and wireless infrastructure performance, mirroring the actual experience of end users 
·        speed detection, location and resolution of faults, freeing up IT teams to work on other initiatives.
