Revolutionary Tablet for Network Professionals On the Move - Supports up to 10 Gbps, NetFlow and Virtualisation

Phoenix Datacom Ltd, the UK’s leading provider of solutions to enhance the performance and security of networks and applications, has announced that it is to sell and support Fluke Networks’ OptiView XG, a network analysis tablet that provides the fastest1 solutions to network and application problems for both wireless and wired access – anywhere in the network. The tablet expedites network and application problem solving by automating root cause analysis and providing guided troubleshooting to address problem areas.

“Our customers rely on us to provide cutting edge solutions and support for the building, monitoring and troubleshooting of their communications networks - we are therefore extremely critical when identifying and selecting new solutions that become available.” said John Carson, Managing Director at Phoenix Datacom Limited. “Using the OptiView XG, our customers have an instant, integrated window into their networks in a contemporary form - the tablet - that can easily be taken from the data centre to the production floor, to the office desktop. In addition to this, the OptiView XG integrates the key technologies network engineers need into a single, portable tool which helps them solve network and application problems faster and improve overall IT efficiency.”

The OptiView XG is designed to provide a wide range of functionality necessary to adapt to the dynamic and diverse networks of today through various features, including:

Intuitive user interface and customisable dashboards:

With a bright, easy-to-read screen, the OptiView XG features customisable dashboards to help transform data into reports for employees at all levels of the organisation – from technicians to managers.

Path and application infrastructure analysis:

Automatically discovers the path between two points in the network and monitors performance along that link to identify network issues that can impact application performance. This decreases the time required to isolate network versus application problems.

Guided/proactive troubleshooting:

Provides a head start on solving problems by collecting and analysing granular data (including NetFlow) collected for 24 hours, so users can go back in time to analyse when the problem surfaced. It also automatically identifies more than 40 different network problems and offers possible causes, impacts and solutions.

Integrated WLAN solution:

Three-radio design reduces deployment and troubleshooting time with simultaneous network discovery, wireless performance analysis and interference detection using industry-leading AirMagnet technologies. When mobile, this allows users to monitor the health of key network devices, while performing real-time analysis of Wi-Fi environments.

“The OptiView XG will help solve problems and get networks up and running faster than ever before,” said Robert Pocock, Head of Product Support, Phoenix Datacom Ltd. “The dashboards let users configure the information the way they want to see it, and it automatically discovers both wired and wireless sides of networks, which is incredibly important to users in a portable tool.”

The OptiView XG’s portable tablet design delivers advanced hardware features:

  • 10.25 inch, 1024 X 768 screen displayed on a two inch-thin tablet weighing less than five pounds
  • Battery powered for freedom and portability
  • 10G SFP+ port , 10/100/1000M RJ-45 ports and 100/1000M SFP+ port
