With BPOS and the first iteration of Office 365, Microsoft provided the Speed Test web tool to assist in determining if an organization’s internet connection could support Microsoft Online services, mainly focusing on Exchange Online and Lync Online. This tool was available from www.microsoftspeedtest.com.
However, for some reason, this tool has not been available for many months now, leaving organizations and IT professionals without a tool to evaluate the impact of Microsoft Online services on their internet connection.
Fortunately, the Office 365 Network Analysis Tool is now available! Similar to Speed Test, this new tool is also web-based and runs several checks such as port connectivity, route paths between the client and tenant, bandwidth speed and capacity tests, and VoIP readiness. At the end of the test the tool generates a nice report.
