Free Webinar - Explore WAN links, Latency, Loss and More with Wireshark!

In this month’s "Know Your Network" webinar, June 11th at 10am PDT/1300 ET,

Mike will be covering a number of topics surrounding the transport of data across WAN links. We will look at the impact of latency and packet loss on data throughput and how to analyze that traffic using Wireshark.

From a physical level, I’ll be talking about MPO/MTP cabling and connectors as well as looking at how we can quickly test it.

Topics for this months webinar:

  • MPO/MTP Cables, Connectors, and Testing

  • Using iPerf to measure TCP and UDP throughput and packet loss

  • Sending traffic with the Apposite TrafficJam

  • Impairing WAN traffic with the Apposite Linktropy WAN Emulator

  • Analyzing WAN traffic with Wireshark

At the conclusion of the webinar attendees will have a good idea of how WAN traffic is impacted by various impairments, what to analyze that traffic and what to do to make it better.
