Fluke Networks Surpasses Milestone for LinkWare Live Report Uploads

Fluke Networks — worldwide provider of tools to configure, certify, maintain, and troubleshoot cabling infrastructure — recently announced a significant milestone of 100 million certification reports uploaded through LinkWare™ Live.

LinkWare™ Live is a cloud-based certification project management service that lets users manage assets and test results, set up testers and labellers, securely share project details and results, and keep track of every test on every job, including those delegated to (sub)contractors.

Network certification testing demonstrates that networks are installed correctly and meet manufacturer warranty requirements; LinkWare™ Live allows contractors to manage test results and equipment and provides proof that their work was done correctly.

“The rapid growth of LinkWare Live — up over 30 percent in the last 12 months — validates the far-reaching benefits it is giving contractors on a consistent basis,” stated Mark Mullins, product marketing manager and founding member of Fluke Networks. “It enables them to work more efficiently and saves operational costs in the certification process and provides their customers with assurance that the network complies with manufacturer warranty requirements.”

LinkWare™ Live is an included feature for Fluke Networks customers and works with the company’s Versiv product line to certify the performance of installed copper and fiber links.

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 Wi-Fi 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.

NetAlly Launches Industry’s First Handheld Analyzer for Wi-Fi 6/6E Testing

An upgrade for the wired and wireless EtherScope® nXG network analyzer provides full visibility of Wi-Fi 6 across all three 802.11 bands.

Colorado Springs, Colorado. USA – May 19, 2022 – NetAlly, a leading innovator of Ethernet and Wi-Fi test and analysis solutions, today announced the upcoming availability on June 8, 2022, of the industry’s first handheld Wi-Fi 6/6E test instrument with the latest model of their EtherScope® nXG Portable Network Expert.

“Wi-Fi 6/6E brings a myriad of advantages from greenfield 6GHz spectrum to mandatory WPA3/OWE security,” says James Kahkoska, NetAlly CTO. “The EtherScope nXG has been fully updated with new hardware and software to ensure connectivity, provisioning, and monitoring of the new Wi-Fi protocols and frequencies, in addition to all legacy Wi-Fi technologies.”

But successful Wi-Fi 6/6E deployments need more than just visibility of Wi-Fi signaling, with access points needing multi-gig link speeds and higher-power PoE. In addition to Wi-Fi 6/6E connectivity and scanning capabilities, EtherScope provides full 90 watt TruPower® load testing and NBASE-T LANBERT™ performance testing to ensure both rock-solid power and signaling for new access point deployments.

Kahkoska continues, “From providing visibility into Reduced Neighbor Reports and Multi-BSSID provisioning, to surveying 6Ghz coverage, capacity, and performance with AirMapper® (NetAlly’s site survey and cloud-enabled heatmapping software), and even 2.5GBASE-T backhaul qualification over existing Cat5 cabling, EtherScope is the single tool to ensure all aspects of your network as you venture into the new spectrum.”

Rowell Dionicio, Managing Director of Packet6, specializing in enterprise Wi-Fi solutions, says, “Wi-Fi 6/6E brings a plethora of complexities to our Wi-Fi networks. I am amazed with the swift innovation from NetAlly to produce a handheld tool that prepares network engineers for the next-generation of Wi-Fi. I feel absolutely confident in understanding and validating the latest technologies and features brand-new to our industry using a tool like the EtherScope nXG.”

Mike Parrottino, NetAlly CEO adds, “The Wi-Fi 6/6E EtherScope nXG is the latest in a long line of ‘firsts’ for our company. Twenty years ago we launched the WaveRunner, the industry’s first handheld Wi-Fi tester. Now once again with the latest EtherScope, NetAlly is putting critical visibility of this new technology into the hands of our customers.”

Current EtherScope nXG owners will be able to take advantage of NetAlly’s customer loyalty program to acquire this new technology at a significant discount. For more information about Wi-Fi 6/6E and the EtherScope nXG Portable Network Expert, please visit https://www.netally.com/wifi-6e
