The EtherScope nXG enables engineers and technicians to get more done faster, from deployment to maintenance and documentation of their ever-changing Wi-Fi and Ethernet access networks. It has a dedicated set of Ethernet and Wi-Fi management interfaces which support remote control and additional testing.
Benefits: As a light-weight, handheld, multi-function instrument, EtherScope is perfect for remote site validation and troubleshooting, eliminating the need to purchase multiple testers, and the need to carry a fragile laptop PC or tablet.
It allows you to quickly run a variety of test types and save their configurations and network credentials for access whenever you need them.
Benefits: AutoTest allows engineers to transfer their knowledge of network configurations to the instrument, empowering frontline technicians to run tests against various wired VLANs and Wi-Fi SSIDs with minimal training. The result is a repeatable, documented test with shortened overall test times, which otherwise would not be possible with other test methods.
The test results, along with connection log, comments and images can be uploaded to Link-Live for automated documentation and analysis by remote experts. Benefits Proper VLAN configuration of switch ports has become important to the operation and security of the modern network so that various traffic can be properly isolated.
The EtherScope nXG wired AutoTest provides the visibility and documentation of VLAN configuration of switch port automatically that makes this previously complex verification task simple. It continues to monitor the xDP traffic received, and lists the source devices and the content of xDP traffic in the Switch Test detail. Benefits The EtherScope nXG wired AutoTest provides quick visibility to the configuration of the nearest switch port connected in most cases.
Even when it is connected to a switch that has the xDP traffic function disabled or set to be transmitted very infrequently, the EtherScope nXG can still provide visibility to the nearest xDP-supporting devices. There is no need to use a protocol analyzer to verify xDP configuration, which is much easier for network technicians to handle.
It continuously monitors the channel, logs events, and provides hour trend graph of signal, noise, and utilization on the connected channel. Benefits: An engineer can program multiple Wi-Fi test profiles to empower technicians to validate one or multiple SSIDs with minimal training. Roaming event is noted as a red bar s on the trend graph. Screenshot of the trend charts and the connection log can be upload to the Link-Live cloud service for documentation.
Analyzing a Wi-Fi connection and roaming issues can be conducted without the need for a protocol analyzer. It is similar to conducting an active site survey of the coverage area.
Benefit: Using EtherScope nXG provides fast insight into network versus server response issues exactly from the point of view of the user in the access layer, enabling quick triage of who owns performance problems.
Benefit: Investment in Multi-Gig infrastructure is wasted if the cable plant cannot support the desired speed. It supports SNMP queries and automatically detects problems on the network. Its free-string search quickly identifies devices for analysis, and offers a jumping-off point for further diagnostics using other test apps, such as Wi-Fi, Path Analysis, and Connection Tests.
By default, discovery processes run out of all available test and management ports — wired and wireless — upon power-up. Benefits: The Discovery app provides quick visibility to network health without user intervention. An engineer can conduct detailed analysis of discovery results in real time on the unit, or after the discovery result is uploaded to Link-Live. Device details including VLAN configuration, interface traffic statistics, and visibility of connected devices. Remote engineers can take control of the unit and utilize a rich set of context-sensitive tools to conduct detailed collaborative analysis with the onsite technician.
Benefits: Analysis of Discovery results, such as filter and drill down, can be performed either on the analyzer or in the cloud for collaborative real-time troubleshooting or detail analysis after the fact.
Many of the EtherScope nXG testing apps feature time-based line graphs of recorded measurements, which you can pan and zoom to view different time intervals. To zoom in on a specific point in time, double tap the point on the graph. Benefits: Trending over time provides insight into intermittent issues, finding bursts of traffic or errors. Wi-Fi Analysis The Wi-Fi Analysis apps show the result from scanning the wireless channels in your environment to discover and gather data about the devices and traffic on your Wi-Fi networks.
Wi-Fi Analysis begins when you power on the EtherScope, and measurements update with each channel scan cycle. The EtherScope Channel Map shows unique correlated key performance indicators for each Wi-Fi channel: bandwidth utilization by Benefits: The Wi-Fi Analysis runs upon power-up and provides quick visibility to the network health without user intervention.
Remote analysis by an engineer on Link-Live or direct remote connection to the EtherScope enables collaborative analysis and reduce time to resolution.
Benefits: Identifying and gaining visibility to Wi-Fi health has never been easier. Detail information of the device can be easily viewed locally on the EtherScope nXG or via remote access.
Unique correlated analysis of RF traffic for a channel, BSSID, and client provides up-to hours detailed visibility to get to the root cause of Wi-Fi performance problems. Benefits: The ability to correlate and analyze RF traffic by channel, BSSID, and client with up to hours back-in-time trend graph offers unique visibility not commonly found in field-deployable Wi-Fi tools or mobile devices used by technicians.
Path Analysis uses SNMP queries to identify issues such as overloaded interfaces, overloaded device resources, and interface errors. It also shows how devices within your network and off-net devices are connected. The Path Analysis app can test through any one of the four network interfaces that have established a connection to the network and have an IP address. This test quantifies network performance in terms of target throughput rate, loss, latency, and jitter at a specified throughput.
Import a floor plan image. Click at various points on your floor plan to collect data; when done, click STOP, then touch the upload icon to send your results to Link-Live for sharing and analysis. The AirMapper app is ideal for quick site surveys of new deployments, change validation, and performance verification. Benefit: Faster and easier than using site survey software on a laptop or tablet with an attached dongle or tethered device, AirMapper is ideal quick site surveys of new deployments, change validation, and performance verification.
The ease and portability of this solution enables technicians to quickly troubleshoot or validate the Wi-Fi network by measuring the real-world experience of mobile device users.
Setting[ edit ] The setting is a Steampunk fantasy world in which the fifth Platonic element, Ether cosmic energy , is discovered and tapped as an energy source. Using their cutting-edge knowledge of this force allows the British empire to flourish and the culture and values of the Victorian Age to be artificially prolonged. Etherspace Technology[ edit ] In the s, American inventors created the Etherscope, a "difference engine" that could interact with Etherspace. Etherscopes are hand-crafted by technicians and are therefore prohibitively expensive items that are owned by the rich and powerful. Users vary from upper-class dilettantes to massive government bureaucracies and wealthy corporations. Enginaughts were originally the trained technicians that created, maintained, programmed, and used "difference engines" mechanical computers.
