Fluke Networks Etherscope

Fluke Networks Etherscope is really in it's element when troubleshooting and diagnosing connectivity issues. It is an excellent tool for example if you have an end user or even an entire room (lab) of computers that have lost all connectivity or are experiencing serious performance issues, mostly speed. You can start at the end user (or one of the lab computers in a lab environment) and begin to test and sample the network infrastructure. It can locate line breaks, or identify the location of even a bad connector. It does work very well in a wireless environment as well, but is just a bit more cumbersome to get it exactly where it needs to be so you can see results that actually show you what may be causing the problem.

It automatically goes through the customer's behaviour to give you an enriched overview of customer engagements. Thus a production or any business company can make the infrastructure stronger by reading their customer's demand & interest points. It can save a lot of time, money & the brain since it works automatically. The data collected by VMware is secured & has no chances of getting lost.

Alternatives Considered

Fluke Networks Etherscope

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.

It is lacking when after installation and requires more manual configuration. and more expensive according to VMware skyline.
