If you are in the market for a small portable network tester and analyser you might be interested in a new piece of hardware called the Netool which has been launched over on the Indiegogo crowdfunding website this month looking to raise $25,000 to make the jump into production.
Netool has been designed to be the smallest network analyser, testing and mapping tool and allows you to discover everything about you port, watch the promotional video below to learn more and see it in action.
Its developers explain a little more about the devices inspiration, design, construction and functionality.
Netool is a diagnostic tool for testing and discovering information about any given network port on any switch, router or any other network device. Just plug Netool into a port and gain access to information that you have never had access to before.Reduce labor by cutting out the amount of time it takes to trouble-shoot a misconfigured port and having the power to send and access info with a network engineer who does not need to physically be in the area.
Netool is designed to be simple to use and understand. It enables anyone to find network port information they would not have had before such as DHCP, switch port, switch host name, current VLAN, tagged VLANs and more. Netool also runs ping and other tests on the same port making trouble shooting easier.Because Netool is software based, Netool’s features list will keep growing, giving you an endless number of options to troubleshoot and discover network based systems.
