Visualware Introduces Internet Speed Test Tool
MySpeed™ Server adds popular download, upload connection speed measurement capabilities to any Web site
TURLOCK, CALIF. – June 2, 2004 – Visualware Inc. today announced the availability of MySpeed Server, an Internet speed test tool that can be added to any existing Web server to provide connection testing services for visitors.
MySpeed enables Web site visitors to easily test their bandwidth performance for both upload and download data transfers. The results are provided in an easy-to-read comparison chart showing the spectrum from slow dial-up connections to high-end T4 lines. In addition to upload and download speeds, MySpeed measures quality of service, roundtrip time and maximum pause. An upload burst speed result is provided when supported by the modem being tested.
“MySpeed not only enables customers to easily test their connection speeds on demand, but it’s also a valuable tool for networking support staff, since it provides fast, accurate results useful for troubleshooting connection problems,” said Jerry Jongerius, Visualware’s chief technology officer. “And because Internet speed tests are very popular with Internet users in general, MySpeed provides a good value-added service that can help attract new visitors to a Web site.”
MySpeed’s key features include:
- Upload and download speed testing -- measures transfer speeds in both directions
- Quality of service test -- reports the overall consistency of download speeds,
- Highly accurate results -- measurements are calculated with a high level of precision,
- Easy implementation -- files are simply added to an existing Web server,
- Customizable display -- the MySpeed applet is easily incorporated into existing Web pages.
MySpeed Server licenses start at $249 for a single-domain, single-server license. MySpeed is a Java applet and can be hosted on any platform running a standard Web application server, such as Apache or Microsoft IIS. Evaluation versions may be downloaded from www.visualware.com.
