Microsoft, back in 2016, released the Microsoft Network Assessment Tool for doing a basic check of connection quality to Skype for Business Online / Teams / O365 (see Randy’s blog for more info). This tool gives you a Pass/Fail based on four network metrics (Packet Loss, Round Trip Time, Jitter, Packet Reorder) for the 90th percentile average of the time you ran the tool.
I decided that while the tool is pretty helpful it could do so much more, so with a bit of PowerShell and a splash of PowerBI I’ve hopefully transformed its output into something richer and far more useful.
Come explore your network with me 🙂Read More
