Appneta Introduces Free and Highly Accurate Internet Speed Testing Tool, Speedcheckr

With network infrastructures becoming increasingly complex, the “slow Internet” trend has been haunting both the business and the end user – and both have little tolerance for slow websites and poor Internet connectivity.

Realizing the need for a more efficient performance management solution, AppNeta has unveiled a new Internet speed testing tool called SpeedCheckr, expected to help resolve performance-related issues more quickly and accurately.

“We are excited to bring to the industry a more intelligent, lightweight approach for measuring and continuously monitoring performance so that users can be confident in their results and resolve performance issues quickly,” CTO at AppNeta commented in a statement.

When it comes to measuring Internet speed and performance, SpeedCheckr offers easier and more accurate results than any other free speed testing tools available in the market. It helps to measure Internet speed from multiple targets, assuring that users always have the historical performance data they need when performance problems arise.

The tool helps users to understand how fast individual network connections are from the user's location, computer and network, out to multiple independent, high-speed targets.

Unlike existing free tools, SpeedCheckr is unaffected by network latency.  

While other tools require many test locations to run effectively, SpeedCheckr allows users to get much more accurate results not affected by test location either.

SpeedCheckr runs as a background service and continuously measures performance while the computer is on and connected to the Internet, not just when a user manually runs a test.

SpeedCheckr provides detailed visual charts of the most recent performance data, so that users clearly understand the amount of data loss and latency, total available network bandwidth, utilized bandwidth and available bandwidth.

AppNeta delivers an industry-first SaaS (News - Alert) portfolio of End User Experience monitoring services with broad, cross application performance visibility and unprecedented network performance insight. The free SpeedCheckr tool incorporates the company’s patented technology and trusted by more than 10,000 corporate networks.  

AppNeta's award-winning PathView Cloud network performance management service provides integrated insight from every element of the network performance stack, including active path performance analysis, application-aware traffic flow analysis, automated remote-site packet capture and on-demand device status using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Delivered from the cloud, this complete suite of services is aimed at providing superior End User Experience monitoring to customers worldwide.

AppNeta recently added new Real User Monitoring (RUM) capabilities for its TraceView application performance management (APM (News - Alert) ) solution. The SaaS-delivered RUM functionality brings Web developers and operations teams visibility into critical client side latency and errors; an integrated view of client- and server-side performance data; and proactive alerting to ensure consistent end user performance.
