Product Announcement – Lakehorn AG of Bern, Switzerland has released a full suite of Network Speed Tester apps for all Apple devices. Network Speed Tester lets users measure and visualize network and WiFi performance between any Apple device on the same network.
Advertised and actual networks speed can vary quite a lot – this is why we’ve created the Network Speed Tester suite of apps, to dig deeper, and find weak spots or bottleneck in any network. In larger houses, WiFi-repeaters are used to improve the range of the WiFi signal, but sometimes the actual performance gets worse because of bad placement or configurations. This can all be detected by Network Speed Tester.
We use client-server technology to measure speed, i.e. various amounts of random data is sent between devices, to get accurate real-world results. The results are then displayed in a graph in realtime, so that any change is visible immediately. E.g. The user can walk around to house and find the best spots for video streaming. Or he moves or even just tilts the WiFi router to see changes in speed.
Network Speed Tester requires any two devices to operate. One device will act as the server using the server app (on iOS or tvOS) or the combined app on macOS. From the second device, the client app will connect to the server via bonjour and visualize the results.
