announces the release of ExamiNet, a remote LAN assessment tool designed specifically to meet the site prequalification and technical support needs of VoIP providers. ExamiNet provides a quick and convenient method of assessing a client's LAN to determine its ability to support VoIP services. The ExamiNet platform also provides a secure and efficient means of collecting the assessment data and allowing access to the data via a web portal. This assessment process is achieved with use of an application that was designed with the chief principle of simplicity for the client end-user. This simplicity removes the need for any technical understanding of networks, PCs or VoIP telephony by the client to collect this information and making it available to the technical support staff responsible for interpreting the data.
ExamiNet executes a suite of low level network tests from a clients host PC that is directly connected to a candidate LAN for the purposes of determining that network's current ability to support VoIP services. The ExamiNet test suite includes procedures that determine the status and support characteristics for key network protocols, services and settings necessary for hosting an acceptable level of quality VoIP service. These tests include: DHCP, DNS, firewall, routing, bandwidth, and QoS.
