SEATTLE (PRWEB) June 3, 2008
Poor network performance can be caused by a number of factors, such as several computers on a network competing for bandwidth, an Internet site that is not working, a busy wireless channel or wireless interference from common household appliances. One of the many benefits of Speed Meter Pro is that it proactively monitors a home network, reporting back on the overall performance of a local network, Internet connection and connected PCs.
Unlike other computer-specific performance monitoring software, Speed Meter Pro looks across the entire network to identify issues that could be causing slowdowns. Speed Meter Pro monitors connected PCs, wired and wireless networks, and the Internet, providing a complete visual picture of everything that's connected to the network, sending alerts when specific issues arise, and providing information and tools to help people resolve issues quickly and easily on their own.
"There is nothing more frustrating to people than their Internet connection slowing to a snail's pace," said Jeff Erwin, CEO of Pure Networks. "We created Speed Meter Pro to give people a simple way to monitor network performance and pinpoint the source of problems. Speed Meter Pro is built on a powerful expert engine that analyzes each network against common thresholds. It goes beyond troubleshooting and monitoring to help people improve the overall performance of their network, so they can enjoy a better, faster connected experience."

As broadband becomes mainstream and wireless capabilities within the home are increasingly desired, the market is expanding to "average" consumers who lack the technical abilities to set up, manage and use the new technologies in their homes. These consumers are increasingly relying on their service providers to help them with networking-related issues, adding significantly to the cost of support. The added insight provided by Speed Meter Pro is one more tool provided by Pure Networks to help service providers keep their costs in check.
