What is most valuable?

It has many great features, but in most of the companies that I have done consulting for, they rarely use them as it requires an advanced level of knowledge of the tool. Event Configuration: A tool in its simplest form creates business logic... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Reduces the false positives, by creating our own business logic with the Event Configuration. Allows us to have a single console/notification point, with the alarms of all the tools that we use for monitoring.

What needs improvement?

It’s like having a Ferrari, without a professional driver. Most companies don’t use all the good features. The out-of-the-box features are just too poor: (Ping, CPU, Disk and Memory, Process, and File Systems). CA Spectrum is an... more»

What is most valuable?

* Planning module: I use it for wireless network deployment during construction stages. * Survey module: Provides a wireless coverage map and spectrum data integration. This is useful for checking wireless coverage and performance.

How has it helped my organization?

Before using this product, we did wireless project designs using a rough estimate of how the wireless networks will appear. Very often, the final quantity was not the same as it was planned on paper. With AirMagnet Survey, we can make a floor... more»

What needs improvement?

AirMagnet Survey very useful for designing and deploying wireless 802.11n/a/b/g/ac projects, in any companies from small offices to large campus buildings.

What do you think of OptiView XG?

Our county has more than 110,000 residents. The county’s IT department supports every elected and appointed county entity, including courts, law enforcement, fire, public works, tax, utilities, internal administration and more. The 3,000-node wired and wireless network provides access to more than 700 users and runs a variety of specialized applications, often from small third-party vendors. With 3,000 nodes spread over a 540 square mile area, 3 data centers hosting more than 100 TB of data, more than 20 buildings with indoor wireless, 70 servers and more than 40 virtual servers, and 700 users, our network is complex. My team needed the ability to monitor, and troubleshoot on a comprehensive, network-wide basis, as well as conduct application-specific testing. In...

What do you think of LinkSprinter?

This is by far the best tester we have used.  Every single wiring/network/telecomm technician should have one of these in their tool bag. It will immediately send you an email with the results of your network test or you may login to the link-live cloud service to view and export the information. In about 15 seconds the visual indicators on the tester will tell you:  Do I have POE? Can I ping the gateway? Can I acquire an address? Can I ping the internet? You can sync this to your mobile device if your looking for additional information - Like the switch name, port and VLAN you are using. No more tracing patch cords in the data closet! How about a quick cable test? Yep,...

What do you think of Netscout LinkRunner?

Valuable Features Solid body: Network engineers and technicians need devices that have hard bodies because they might drop it, pick it up with other equipment and so on. Authorized: It is stable and I am used to its reports. If you need to validate a cable, you can just calibrate it with a one-meter cable, and then test any cable again. Long-life battery • Improvements to My Organization It helps me because I don’t have to call another technician. • Room for Improvement No touch screen It doesn't support USB flash storage It doesn't support WiFi • Use of Solution I have been using it for about two years. • Deployment Issues Deployment was very easy. I did not even need a manual. • Stability Issues I never had any stability issues. • Scalability Issues I...

What is most valuable?

Provides long term capture and analysis capabilities.

How has it helped my organization?

Enables us to go back in time to capture an issue and analyze it for a solution. This after the fact analysis is key to overcoming the "bump in the night" issues.

What needs improvement?

* The Observer Console UI is consistent and stable, but could use some updating to be more modern. * There’s a web-based packet extraction interface that was recently added, but I’d like to see more web-based capabilities added so that the... more»
