Fluke Corporation

We used ours mainly to test the wireless. Wireless could be several different things so the preconfigured tests on this device allowed us to quickly eliminate certain areas and allowed us to focus on the real problem. It’s easy enough a PC Technician could use it.

VMware

It is best suited for customers having premier support services and looking for faster remediation. The VCenter server and VSAN environment are covered in the VMware Skyline. The environments which are critical and run very secure applications and do not have access to internet connection on the Virtualization environment can not use the VMware skyline as it is unable to send the logs automatically to the VMware support team.

      Alternatives Considered

      Fluke Corporation

      We briefly tested a NetAlly LSPRNTR-300 LinkSprinter 300 Network Tester with WIFI and Distance to Cable Fault Indication and it was a worthy testing unit it but we quickly discovered that it did not offer the large range of testing in both the copper and fiber network drops, nor was it as complete with regard to wireless testing. But in it's defense it was not quite as pricy as the Fluke.
