In seconds, the LinkRunner AutoTest provides these answers and more on a brightly colored display that's easy to read under desks or outdoors.
You can document your test results to prove the job's done right. With a six hour battery life and rugged design, the LinkRunner AT Network AutoTester can work wherever and whenever you need it.
LinkRunner AT Features
Instant-on operation — ready to run your first test in less than three seconds.
Get answers fast — user-defined AutoTest performs your required set of connectivity tests in seconds, enabling you to accurately and quickly
identify and solve network problems. The AutoTest facilitates standardized troubleshooting by ensuring that everyone on the support team tests in
accordance with the organization-defined, network-specific best practice. Create up to 10 AutoTest profiles for a variety of troubleshooting
Take control — use the Link-Live Cloud Service to manage thousands of test results and multiple testers. Easily view and sort results. Organize
results by job-specific folders. Tag individual results with detailed comments and images. Create professional reports customized with your logo
and project specific information. Know who on your staff is testing what, where and when by assigning a tester to a technician.
Verify connectivity at 10/100/1G over copper or 100/1G over fiber — connect using copper or fiber, turn it on to see link status, connection
type, signal strength and traffic.
Nearest switch and VLAN information — uses IEEE Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) plus the Cisco® and Extreme Discovery Protocols
(CDP and EDP) to display the VLAN and nearest switch model, slot and port.
TruePower™ PoE testing — quickly validate PoE performance by drawing actual power up to the 802.3at standard 25.5W. Load the circuit to
stress switches, cabling and patch panels, all while measuring the voltage and pairs being used. The ability to validate the TruePower delivery
before installing cameras, AP's and phones ensures smooth deployment.
802.1X authentication — verify access to secure networks using 802.1X and MAC Access Control Lists (ACL). The included LinkRunner AT
Manager software configures 802.1X EAP type, downloads certificates and enters passwords.
Cable verification and toning — check patch cables using the built-in wiremap port including pin-to-pin connection, or installed wiring for length,
shorts, opens or split pairs. The optional office locator kit allows identification of up to six unique ports for documenting cable plants.
IPv4/IPv6 ready — supports both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
Key device and application availability — in addition to ping, which is often blocked or disabled, the LinkRunner AT performs a TCP port open
test to verify application connectivity to up to 10 user-defined servers using IPv4 and IPv6. Router, DNS and DHCP servers are reported.
Document results — Save test results locally on the tester or select the Link-Live Reporting Mode to have results automatically uploaded the
Link-Live Cloud Service. Results on the tester are downloaded to your PC and managed locally using the LinkRunner AT Manager PC
application. Results uploaded to cloud service are managed using any smart device with a browser and an internet connection.
Designed for field use — six-hour Li-ion battery life, one-handed operation and a rugged design.
