What LinkRunner AT customers are saying:
“I was amazed .. this device was finished testing before I could even explain to one of my junior engineers what I was actually doing. I’ve been an engineer for more than 20 years and this device just gets me, it understands what my workflow truly is and what type of information I need to do my job.” Charles Morris, senior consultant at ACS, A Xerox Company
“After using the LinkRunner AT I can unquestionably say it will save this organization time and money while improving satisfaction. In fact, now that I’ve used it, I wouldn’t want to be without one.” – Thomas Franchina Senior Systems Programmer, United Health Services
“Not only is the LinkRunner AT fast, but it’s incredibly thorough with the essential Ethernet connectivity tests I need. So while it speeds troubleshooting, it also gives me a high level of confidence in the results. If the unit says the connection is okay, I know it’s okay.” – John Heidelberg Network Administrator, Jensen International
With a three second startup and a user-defined AutoTest that performs your required set of connectivity tests in seconds, the LinkRunner AT enables you to quickly and accurately identify and solve network problems.
AutoTest runs 6 connectivity tests in seconds
Connect using copper or fiber, turn it on, and the LinkRunner AT shows the link status, connection type, and signal strength.
Then the LinkRunner AT uses the 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.
The LinkRunner AT displays critical nearest switch information including:
100 MB link on copper with PoE on port 23
1 Gig link on fiber
You can 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, APs and phones ensures smooth deployment.
In addition to a ping, which is often blocked, the LinkRunner AT performs a TCP port open test to verify application connectivity through IPv4 and IPv6. Router, DNS and DHCP servers are reported, along with response time. Configure 10 additional devices to meet your requirements by URL or IPv4/IPv6 address and optional application port number.
Ping & TCP Port Connectivity
Verify access to secure networks using 802.1x and MAC Access Control Lists (ACL). The included LinkRunner Manager Software can be used to configure 802.1x EAP type, download certificates, and enter passwords.
MAC ACLs can be validated using MAC spoofing.
Locate cable runs with toning, port advertisement, link blinking, and wire-mapping with up to 6 cable identifiers. Toning supports both analog and digital IntelliTone modes.
Check patch cables using the built in wiremap port including pin-to-pin connection, or installed wiring for length, shorts, or opens or split pairs. The optional office locator kit allows identification of up to 6 unique ports for documenting cable plants.
Easily find opens, shorts, miswires, and split pairs three different ways:
A mis-wired cable with pairs 1,2 and 7,8 swapped using cable identifier #1
A cable with an open on 4 using the built in wiremap port
A mis-wired cable with pairs 3,6 & 4,5 split
The LinkRunner AT packet reflector mode allows it to be used as a remote device during throughput tests to validate LAN and WAN throughput capabilties up to 1GBps. Can be programmed to swap MAC and/or IP addresses.
LinkRunner supports packet reflection for:

Rockwell Automation Streamlines Network Connectivity Testing with LinkRunner AT Network Auto-Tester
Rockwell Automation’s Network and Security Services team focuses on deploying and optimizing networks to help manufacturing facilities meet production and business goals. When network problems arise, the Rockwell Automation team needs to be able to quickly isolate and fix the issue. With more than 200 service engineers and technicians in the field, evaluating the underlying infrastructure is often the first step – and it needs to happen fast. They needed a tool that could not only automate copper and fiber network testing, but could also provide detailed information in a consolidated view that was easy to understand.
Rockwell Automation found that Fluke Networks’ LinkRunner AT Network Auto-Tester, was the fastest way to solve network connectivity problems. In seconds, it delivered the information they needed to accurately isolate root cause and speed Mean-Time-To-Repair (MTTR). The device’s portability made it easy to travel with, and its bright color display allows engineers and technicians to quickly review information and store test results.
LinkRunnerTM AT Network Auto-Tester Helps Redstone Quickly Test, Verify and Demonstrate Network Connectivity for Major UK Deployments
Quickly testing, verifying and demonstrating network connectivity is a critical front-line task for the engineers at Redstone. The company supports IT infrastructure, spanning hundreds of thousands of network ports for some of the largest financial companies in the UK, and these customers demand to know that their network is operating to specification. Fluke Networks’ LinkRunner™ AT Network Auto-Tester delivers the testing, diagnostics and reporting that Redstone needs to keep customers up and running.
Redstone found that the LinkRunner™ AT not only saves time, but also improves productivity and reduces the need for multiple tools by quickly testing and diagnosing virtually any copper or fibre connection.
Jensen International is a diverse manufacturer founded in Coffeyville, Kansas more than 90 years ago. Today, Jensen International has two campuses, a mixture of Ethernet, wireless and wide area network connections, and limited IT resources. Staying on top of the company’s network operations and ensuring Ethernet connectivity is a constant challenge.
Jensen International began using the LinkRunner™ AT Network Auto-Tester to test and diagnose a broad range of issues, from IPv6 and PoE to wiremapping and protocol verification. The IT staff found that the LinkRunner AT made it fast, easy and cost-effective to complete network testing—in fact it’s so easy that employees can be directed to test a link even when IT staff is out of the office.
United Health Services (UHS) encompasses four major hospitals and more than 30 clinics across New York, with a 5,000 node Cisco® network keeping it all connected. This entire infrastructure keeps the IT staff very busy as they install new PCs or connect the latest medical devices and equipment to the network.
Getting in and out fast is a priority for the IT team at UHS, which has a heavy workload keeping the regional healthcare organization’s 5,000 node network and more than 30 facilities constantly connected. UHS found that verifying network links was not only faster with the LinkRunner AT, but the device’s accuracy and ease of use helped eliminate return trips and smoothed the workflow from cable installation through to VLAN configuration and PC support.
ACS works with organizations across the globe to design, install and maintain wired and wireless networks, ranging from a few thousand connections to tens of thousands of nodes throughout the world.
ACS needed to ensure the installation and operation of critical customer networks worldwide. Being able to quickly verify connections or identify and solve network issues is key to the company saving customers time and money. ACS found the LinkRunner AT to be the first device they’ve tested that allows them to quickly conduct either a standard set of connectivity tests or to customize their testing procedures to troubleshoot and maintain network connectivity. The tester saved their organization time and money, helped speed service and increased customer satisfaction.
In order to troubleshoot network faults, technicians have to carry around multiple items of equipment. This makes it awkward to manage all the verification instruments and complicates the troubleshooting workflow. Training costs money and creating reports is time-consuming.
As long as the profile has been set up in advance, the LinkRunner AT enables troubleshooting and training to be performed while reducing the time and effort involved. As network faults can be identified quickly, tech¬nicians experience much lower levels of stress on site visits. A report can be created at a keystroke.
