The nPoint 3000 supports advanced service testing over Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections that provides IT a way to compare the trended results for fault isolation and determine if any service impact is, or is not, due to Wi-Fi. Tests can also measure the difference in latency over Wi-Fi and Ethernet on the same nPoint 3000. These tests will help identify the cause of the issue as the Wi-Fi network, a device or the wired network. If the tests do isolate a problem with Wi-Fi, IT can also use nGeniusPULSE to provide further diagnosis and fault isolation by using wireless infrastructure monitoring to collect access point metrics such as channel utilization, retry rate, and error frame rate. These key performance indicators shed light on common issues such as co-channel interference and RF interference. With the problem isolated to Wi-Fi and a specific access point, the problem can be quickly fixed, and service can be restored. Our Approach The NETSCOUT ® service assurance platform is based on a top down-approach, providing clear insights into service performance across the entire IT environment from the network, application, and user perspective. This approach continues when monitoring business service availability and performance from a Wi-Fi connection using synthetic testing. Our Solutions NETSCOUT's nGeniusPULSE ® solution is an always-on and automated solution that uses synthetic testing to monitor business service availability and performance. Providing 24/7 monitoring of critical applications and services from anywhere in the enterprise, nGeniusPULSE give IT visibility to the edge of the network, while correlating service delivery with the health of the supporting infrastructure. With nPoint deployment options to fit multiple scenarios, tests can be run from the above-mentioned locations or wherever people need access to services.
