Integrated Ethernet tester for copper, fiber optic and Wi-Fi:
Be ready for a broad range of troubleshooting scenarios with the handheld OneTouch AT G2 Network Assistant. The tester incorporates dual copper and fiber optic test ports to facilitate troubleshooting of 10 / 100 / 1000 Mbps twisted pair and 100 / 1000 Mbps fiber topic Ethernet networks. The dual ports simplify inline packet capture and VoIP monitoring by eliminating the need for mirror ports or taps. For troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks the OneTouch AT tester incorporates dual-band Wi-Fi radio with a 3 x 3 antenna. When connected to both wired and Wi-Fi networks the tester displays test results side-by-side on a single page to aid in problem domain isolation.
Configurable profiles for standardized testing:
Use the intuitive touch interface to create test profiles, where a profile is a set of tests tailored to your network, services, and applications. Create simple profiles with only a few tests or advanced profiles consisting of dozens of tests. You can build profiles to accommodate different types of users, devices, locations or technologies. Once created, profiles can be saved for quick and easy reuse later. Create a library of standardized profiles to elevate the troubleshooting know-how of network support staff. Share profiles with other OneTouch AT users. Use profiles to establish practices for consistent, faster, more productive troubleshooting and network acceptance testing.
One hour of testing time in just one minute:
Test everything defined in a profile automatically with the one-touch AutoTest. The AutoTest progresses from the physical layer of the network, through the wired and wireless infrastructure, to network services and user-defined applications tests. Clear pass / fail and warning indicators highlight potential problems. A top-level pass / fail indicator provides the overall AutoTest status at a glance.
Client view of network performance:
Most network trouble tickets start where a client device is connected to the network - where the device could be a PC, a tablet, a smartphone, an IP phone, a printer, a POS terminal, an industrial equipment controller or a medical imager. Troubleshoot common issues - or prove that the network is not the cause - by emulating the client device and measuring network performance.
Infrastructure to application testing:
The cause of a network problem can be elusive. Identify the root cause of a problem by measuring and analyzing the performance of the critical network elements: the network cabling, the delivery of Power over Ethernet (PoE), the connection to the nearest switch, the connection to the nearest access point and the performance of key network services and server-based applications.
Network services testing:
Test DHCP server responsiveness. Identify the wired and Wi-Fi DHCP servers and view the offer and acceptance timing and lease information. Test DNS server responsiveness. Identify the wired and Wi-Fi DNS servers and view the DNS lookup time.
Network application testing:
Determine if a server-based application is the root cause of a reported problem by measuring availability and responsiveness metrics. Add to the AutoTest profile the performance test appropriate for the application: ping (ICMP), connect (TCP), web (HTTP), file (FTP), multicast (IGMP), video (RTSP) or e-mail (SMTP). Each test is graphically represented on the OneTouch AT home page as an icon. After running the AutoTest, touch a test icon on the home page to get a detailed breakdown of application performance including DNS lookup time, server response time and data rate.
Cloud-based Trending feature:
The Trending feature automatically and repeatedly uploads AutoTest results to the cloud for additional analysis. Control the number of AutoTest results uploaded by setting the duration and interval of the Trending. Trending runs automatically once launched, untethering the user from the tester. The user does not need to be present to gather test results; simply launch the Trending and leave. Long-duration testing is invaluable when trying to troubleshoot sporadic, intermittent problems that frequently occur when network support staff is away.
Remote control and file access:
Use the built-in RJ-45 management port to remotely control the OneTouch AT and access saved files. Any action that can be performed directly on the OneTouch AT using the touch screen can be performed remotely using a PC, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone. Manage the OneTouch AT remotely when and where convenient using a device at hand. Minimize the time, expense and inconvenience of traveling to the client location where the problem was reported. Webcam support enables live, remote viewing of the physical environment near the tester.
