New Toolset | Fluke Linkrunner Pro
We have added a new tool for our field network technicians, a Fluke Linkrunner Pro. This device provides a multitude of layer one-three network tests. The device provides layer one tests including continuity, wiremap, TDR, and can inject tone into a network cable for cable location. Layer two tests include advertised and connected link speeds and reads CDP, LLDP, and EDP for switchport identification. It also will show port CLAN information. Finally it provides layer three tests including acting as a DHCP client and pinging the default gateway, DNS server, DHCP Server, and predefined hosts. This tool will help our field technicians identify more complex problems quickly and will assist cable managemnt planning and documentation.
