Release notes, December 15, 2015

New features

Test and monitor mobile networks

It is now possible to test and monitor 2G, 3G, and 4G (LTE) networks. The HW-medium will have this optional capability, and will be equipped with a built-in mPCIe card, and have two antennas. 

You can switch between the different mobile networks, monitor and store parameters such as RSRP (Reference Signal Receive Power), and RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator), while at the same time running IP network and service level tests. In this way you can understand if service issues are due to the mobile network, or some other components part of the end-to-end service.

Full-mesh support for VoIP UDP

Adding possibility to start full-mesh tests for VoIP UDP.

Improvements

NTP Time-synchronization

To enable faster turn-up and troubleshooting tests, we have made huge improvements in getting the initial time-sync when the Probe is connected and powered up. This thus improves productivity for field personal that now can spend less time every site.

Possible to see Probe ID using Console

The Probe ID is the unique identifier of a Probe. Now you can log in to a probe using the console and see the ID, which simplifies correlation with the Probes you see in the GUI.

Execute multiple SIP tests concurrently on different interfaces

Previously it was only possible to run one SIP test per probe. Now you can run one SIP test per interface, which increases the flexibility.

New version of API documentation

A new version is available and can be sent upon request.

General performance improvements

As Netrounds is now used in larger monitoring configurations and in more advanced tests, we have started an ongoing effort to increase performance in terms of response times. We will continuously monitor and detect long response times when using Netrounds, and optimize our code, as well as scale out our infrastructure when required.

Fixed bugs

A few minor bugs have been fixed.
