Fluke Networks Adds Cloud Services to its Award-Winning OneTouch™ AT Network Assistant Handheld Tester

-- Automated testing and new cloud-based analytics promise to save time, increase productivity and eliminate the torment of network technicians everywhere: the intermittent issue

EVERETT, Washington, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Fluke Networks today introduced cloud services for its OneTouch™ AT Network Assistant. Free with any new handheld OneTouch AT tester or as a software upgrade for existing units, the cloud service enables the OneTouch AT tester to provide visibility into network performance over time—an invaluable aid in troubleshooting intermittent problems that often occur when the network technician isn't available. The new OneTouch AT software also offers "launch-and-leave" remote testing and more in-depth analytics, which not only help technicians solve existing problems, but also help them pre-empt new ones.

According to a recent Fluke Networks survey*, network technicians spend up to 25 percent of their time troubleshooting end-user issues. Survey respondents also noted intermittent issues take twice as long to resolve because they tend to reappear when the technician isn't available to fix them. According to the survey, intermittent problems comprise roughly 30 percent of all end-user issues.

Using Cloud Services to Diagnose Intermittent Problems Reaps Rewards
The OneTouch AT tester and new cloud service make it easier to see network irregularities, with sequential test results automatically uploaded to the cloud service and plotted on color-coded charts. Technicians can now view trended results from multiple tests side by side to identify correlated events. They can even zoom in to see details for an event within a narrower time window, and then print or download charts as documentation.

"Diagnosing network issues has gotten easier with the new OneTouch AT Network Assistant," said Cecil Bunn, a network engineer at the Shelby County Board of Education in Columbiana, AL. "Using the automated testing and cloud-based trend analytics, I could see that my DNS server was a huge bottleneck during peak network usage times. By increasing the RAM on the server, we sped up the network and made everyone happy, including me. The OneTouch helped isolate the issue and solve the problem in near record time."

Autonomous Remote Testing Enables "Launch-and-Leave" Troubleshooting
Network problems are never convenient, especially if they occur at a remote site, during non-business hours or on an intermittent basis. Using the cloud-enabled OneTouch AT tester, technicians can launch a series of autonomous tests and walk away. The OneTouch tester measures network performance, uploads the results to the cloud service and repeats the cycle as frequently as every 60 seconds for as long as a week, greatly improving the chance of catching intermittent problems. With results automatically saved to the cloud, technicians don't even need to stay with the tester, knowing they can view and share results at any time from any Internet-enabled device.

"With the new cloud-enabled OneTouch AT Network Assistant, Fluke Networks has effectively untethered technicians from their testers," said Doug Roberts, director of Product Marketing for Fluke Networks. "While convenience is certainly a benefit, the real value is in reducing time and effort spent solving problems that impact productivity."

The OneTouch AT cloud service can also be used as a daily management and problem avoidance tool. Network administrators can set up the OneTouch AT tester as a generic client device accessing one or more services or servers and leave it running. By periodically signing into the cloud service, they can view performance results and look for degradations. If something suspicious appears, technicians can use the OneTouch AT tester to identify the root cause and fix issues before employees complain.

Version 3 software is now shipping on all versions of the OneTouch AT Network Assistant. Existing Fluke Networks customers with Gold support will receive the upgrade at no additional charge.
The OneTouch AT tester is the second in a series of Fluke Networks products to take advantage of cloud services. The company announced its all-new LinkSprinter—a pocket-sized Ethernet tester—last month.
