Product Description

The World’s First Android-based Smart Network Tester for the Connected World

As the world’s leading network connectivity tester, LinkRunner™ provides immediate visibility and value to network professionals responsible for delivering network services. By combining Ethernet test capabilities for copper and fiber links with the Android™ OS1, LinkRunner G2 represents a breakthrough in handheld network test that elevates the prociency and productivity of network technicians responsible for troubleshooting as well as deployment and validation of network connected devices.


Importance of Automated Network Connectivity Testing

Paramount to the deployment of any type of network-connected device is validating link and network services from the point where end devices connect to the network. By automating those many tests in a simple but complete AutoTest, instead of requiring specialized expertise to understand the many underlying elements of network connectivity, even the least experienced technician can execute the test. AutoTest performs a default set of key network connectivity tests in seconds, providing a standardized test process that enables technicians to quickly and accurately identify if the problem is in the connected device, the network, or lack of proper PoE being supplied to the RJ-45 jack.
