10G Ethernet tester for copper and fiber optic networks
The 1T10G-1000 OneTouch AT 10G Network Assistant incorporates one 100M/1G/10G RJ-45 Ethernet test port and one 1G/10G SFP fiber optic transceiver port. Easily troubleshoot 10G connectivity issues and measure end-to-end network path performance at rates up to 10 Gbps.
Configurable profiles for standardized testing
Use the intuitive touch interface and the Setup Wizard to create test profiles, where a profile is a set of tests tailored to your network, services, and applications. Create simple profiles with only a few tests or advanced profiles consisting of dozens of tests. You can build profiles to accommodate different types of users, devices, locations or technologies. Once created, profiles can be saved for quick and easy reuse later. Create a library of standardized profiles to elevate the troubleshooting know-how of network support staff. Share profiles with other OneTouch AT users. Use profiles to establish best practices for consistent, faster, more productive troubleshooting and network acceptance testing.
End-to-end path performance measurement
The OneTouch AT 10G Network Assistant features 10G and 1G Wired Performance tests for validating and troubleshooting end-to-end network path performance. These Wired Performance tests facilitate measurement of throughput, frame loss, latency and jitter across wide area networks, local area networks and within sites and datacenters.
One Hour of Testing Time in Just One Minute
Test everything defined in a profile automatically with the one-touch AutoTest. The AutoTest progresses from the physical layer of the network, through the wired infrastructure, to network services and user-defined applications tests. Clear pass/fail and warning indicators highlight potential problems. A top-level pass/fail indicator provides the overall AutoTest status at a glance.
Client view of network performance
Most network trouble tickets start where a client device is connected to the network—where the device could be a PC, tablet, IP phone, printer, POS terminal, industrial equipment controller or a medical imager. Troubleshoot common issues—or prove that the network is not the cause—by emulating the client device and measuring network performance.
Infrastructure to application testing
The cause of a network problem can be elusive. Identify the root cause of a problem by measuring and analyzing the performance of the critical network elements: the network cabling, the connection to the nearest switch, and the performance of key network services and server-based applications.
Network services testing
Test DHCP server responsiveness. Identify the DHCP servers and view the offer and acceptance timing and lease information. Test DNS server responsiveness. Identify the DNS servers and view the DNS lookup time.
Network application testing
Determine if a server-based application is the root cause of a reported problem by measuring availability and responsiveness metrics. Add to the AutoTest profile the performance test appropriate for the application: ping (ICMP), connect (TCP), web (HTTP), file (FTP), multicast (IGMP), video (RTSP) or email (SMTP). Each test is graphically represented on the OneTouch AT home page as an icon. After running the AutoTest, touch a test icon on the home page to get a detailed breakdown of application performance including DNS lookup time, server response time and data rate.
The test results are presented side-by-side for easy IPv4/IPv6 performance comparisons. A few examples: connect to port 2000 on your VoIP call manager, download a page of an application with a web interface, upload or download a file from a server, subscribe to a multicast group, access video content from an on-demand streaming video server or email a text message to your mobile phone.
Local, intranet and internet performance
Understand the performance of network services and server-based applications wherever they are hosted: locally in the datacenter, on a corporate intranet server or on a server reached via the public internet. Create location centric AutoTest profiles by grouping together co-located services and applications. Measure service levels to the different groups to quickly spot problems.
The Trending feature automatically and repeatedly uploads AutoTest results to the cloud for additional analysis. Control the number of AutoTest results uploaded by setting the trending duration and interval. Trending runs automatically once launched, untethering the user from the tester. The user does not need to be present to gather test results; simply launch Trending and leave.Trend results for up to 1 week, or until manually stopped. Long duration testing is invaluable when trying to troubleshoot sporadic, intermittent problems that frequently occur when network support staff is away.
Open a OneTouch AT Cloud Service account to view and analyze AutoTest results uploaded via the Trending feature. Correlate network events by viewing multiple test results simultaneously in side-by-side charts. All the test results uploaded during a single Trending session are available for analysis. The number of tests is defined by the complexity of your AutoTest profile and the number of results is defined by the Trending duration and interval. Select one or more of the tests within the trending session to analyze the results. The Cloud Service plots sequential results on a single color-coded chart to simplify analysis over time. Charting makes it easy to see performance irregularities. Zoom permits an even more detailed analysis of the sub-processes that comprise each individual test.
Access the Cloud Service over the web at anytime from anywhere using a web-connected smart device with a web browser. View and analyze results when and where convenient using a PC or smart device.
Remote control and file access
Use the built-in RJ-45 management port or optional USB Wi-Fi adapter to remotely control the tester and access saved files. Any action that can be performed directly on the instrument using the touch screen can be performed remotely using a PC, laptop, tablet or smart phone. Manage the tester remotely when and where convenient using using a device at hand. Minimize the time, expense and inconvenience of traveling to the client location where the problem was reported. Webcam support enables live, remote viewing of the physical environment near the tester.
Remotely control the OneTouch AT 10G tester and access saved files from the Cloud Service web application. Increase productivity by remotely managing the tester and viewing trended AutoTest results all from a single location. Remote management via the Cloud Service web application also allows traversal of NAT devices, which is very advantageous when troubleshooting outside the office.
Problem avoidance and performance optimization
Cloud trending and analytics let you use the OneTouch AT 10G tester for proactive problem avoidance and performance optimization. Set a long trending duration – up to one week – and use Cloud Service analytics to identify potential vulnerabilities and performance bottlenecks. In this use model, the tester serves as a 24/7 portable network probe and the Cloud Service as the analytics engine. Identify and correct potential network, service or application vulnerabilities before they become problems that adversely impact users. Identify performance bottlenecks and reconfigure the network to optimize end user response time.
The OneTouch AT 10G tester excels at both “firefighting” - reactive troubleshooting of both persistent and intermittent problems – and daily network management - for proactively avoiding problems and optimizing performance.
Wired network discovery and analysis
Automatically discover copper and fiber-connected devices and key device properties. Select from among fourteen different sorts to obtain different views into the wired network. For example, sort by IPv4 or IPv6 address to identify used and available addresses. Or sort by switch name/slot/port to understand where on the network devices are connected. Sort by discovered problems to quickly identify potential issues. Additional discovery-assisted analysis tools aid with troubleshooting and profile creation. For example, the Multiport Statistics tool provides visibility into switch, router and AP port statistics including speed, duplex, slot, port, VLANs, host count, utilization, discards and errors.The Devices on Port tool provides visibility into the devices connected to an individual switch port.The Path Analysis tool provides a layer 2 and 3 trace route from the OneTouch AT to a target device including time to each hop and SNMP switch and router port statistics.
Capture network traffic when a packet-level view is required to solve a complex network or application issue. Filter the traffic to capture what is most important. Export the capture file to a PC for decoding and analysis using protocol analysis software. Capture traffic on either the copper or fiber optic port at rates up to 100 Mbps. Optionally capture traffic while the AutoTest runs.
