NETSCOUT Unveils NextGen AirCheck Handheld Wireless Tester
WESTFORD, MA: NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, a provider of cyber security and service assurance solutions, has released AirCheck G2, which is an enhanced version of its Handheld Wireless Tester. It will be available through NETSCOUT’s CONNECT360 global channel partner program.
The new and enhanced tool includes features such as troubleshooting and diagnosing Wi-Fi networks built using the 802.11ac standard, access point backhaul testing, and free access to the Link-Live Cloud dashboard. The 802.11ac standard is a wireless networking standard that provides high throughput wireless local area networks (WLANs). In essence, the tester allows front-line IT to locate access points and unauthorized devices and identify problems like dead zones, slow speeds, and spotty connections. Further, it supports installation and troubleshooting of IoT wireless edge and IT infrastructure for applications including testing of wireless infrastructure for patient monitoring in healthcare, customer experiences for retail, industrial IoT and smart buildings.
AirCheck G2 provides free access to Link-Live Cloud Service—a centralized management, collaboration, and archival workspace for network connectivity test results, offering better visibility, fleet management and project control for large environments, The tools also features 802.11ac 3x3 radio support for next generation wireless initiatives, enhanced usability with a 5” touch screen display, and Ethernet tests for AP backhaul verification.
Additionally, the company’s patented technology provides trusted and comprehensive real-time insight into performance of the network, applications and user communities. All these capabilities enable IT staff members to predict, preempt, and resolve network and service delivery problems while facilitating the optimization and capacity planning of the network infrastructure. “By viewing the overall traffic patterns and analyzing transactional data, CIOs can better understand what the network and the other service delivery infrastructure components can handle and where they need to expand or contract in computing or bandwidth,” notes Anil Singhal, Founder, President and CEO, NETSCOUT.
