‘Interactive’ and ‘user-friendly’ are important features in the consumer market, but the corporate network testing market is a few steps behind.

All that might change however, since Mississauga, Ont.-based Fluke Electronics Canada Inc. released its new icon-based OneTouch Series II Network Assistant family of web-enabled hand-held test tools.

Although the interactive touch screen feature on the Series II is a key ease-of-use element, Fluke’s director of marketing David H. Green said that user-friendliness is stressed, but “not over-played because it’s really what it (OneTouch) does against how you interface with it that is critical.”
