Network Utility Download

Description

The 8x8 Network Utility simulates phone calls from your location to 8x8 data centers and gives specific measurements indicating network performance.

Click the appropriate version below to download and install the application on your computer. Please work with your 8x8 Support representative to review and interpret results.

Note: You will need a product activation key to use the Network Utility. Please contact 8x8 Support for assistance.

The Network Utility provides a snapshot of network settings and diagnostic results. While the test is comprehensive some network settings that affect phone service may not be captured in the test. In the event of issues occurring that are likely related to network configuration, the firewall configuration may still need to be reviewed despite passing the Network Utility test.

What's New?

  • 8x8 has updated the Application Layer Gateway (ALG) test to use a random local port during testing. We have removed ALG test for TCP on port 5060 as it is no longer used by 8x8 applications.

With some versions of MAC's you will get the following pop up when installing the application "8x8 Network Utility can't open because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed." This is because this needs to be manually allowed in the security and privacy settings, which can be seeing from the image below
