Fluke Networks LRAT-2000 LinkRunner AT Ethernet Network Tester
Fluke Networks LinkRunner AT Network Auto-Tester is the fastest way to solve network connectivity problems. This rugged, handheld network tester takes the guesswork out of troubleshooting with its complete one-button AutoTest. The AutoTest performs your required set of connectivity tests in 10 seconds, enabling you to accurately and quickly identify and solve network problems.
AutoTest accurately identifies network problems in 10 seconds
With a three-second boot-up and a one-button AutoTest that performs a customized set of connectivity tests in ten seconds, the LinkRunner AT enables quick and accurate problem identification to solve network problems fast. The AutoTest includes TruePower Power over Ethernet measurement, negotiation of link speed and duplex, discovery of switch port and VLAN information, negotiation of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, availability of the gateway and the DNS servers, and the connection to user-defined devices and TCP applications. Save and share AutoTest profiles to standardize the troubleshooting process and create best practices.
Test twisted pair and fiber optic Ethernet links at Gigabit rates
Troubleshoot copper and fiber links with the integrated 10/100/Gig copper RJ45 and 100/Gig fiber optic SFP interfaces. Test twisted pair cables for length, shorts, opens or split pairs with a remote cable identifier, the built-in wiremap port or on non-terminated cables. Test fiber optic cables for continuity and received power. Digital and analog cable toning and switch port light blinking help locate and identify twisted pair cables. The optional office locator kit allows identification of up to six different RJ45 jacks.
Discover the nearest switch and VLAN
Using discovery protocol analysis (LLDP, CDP or EDP) the LinkRunner AT tester identifies the nearest switch and the VLAN IDs. Nearest switch information includes switch name, model, IP address, port/slot, speed/duplex (actual and advertised), signal strength, connection type (MDI or MDI/X), PoE voltage and power (actual and test limit), and a graphical representation of power on pairs.
Document test results
Run the LinkRunner Manager application to transfer saved test results from the tester to a Windows PC. Generate customize reports to close trouble tickets, escalate problems and prove acceptable connectivity. Use the management application to create and manage AutoTest profiles and to upgrade tester firmware.
The right LinkRunner AT for the job
The LinkRunner AT tester is available in two models: LRAT-1000 and LRAT-2000. The LinkRunner AT 2000 adds the following exclusive features: a fiber optic SFP interface, the TruePower PoE load test, IPv6 support, 50 results saved on the tester (versus 10) and a Li-ion rechargeable battery. The LinkRunner AT 2000 also features packet reflection facilitating use of the tester as a performance test remote device.

It's really nice being able to plug into drop and having it tell me how long the cable is (gives me an estimate as to what network closet the switch is in), what switch and port number the drop is connected to along with what VLAN that port is pulling the IP from. We are using Cisco switches and everything works great. Another network tech did tell me that the Fluke AT 1000 won't pull the VLAN info from some brands of switches though, however our Cisco's work great.
Where is this user even connected? If it's not your network, how would you know? And users and management think we all "just know". Well, this tool is a part of that. Assuming the network is made up of Cisco switches and such you can find out which VLAN and switch the user is actually connected to. You will see speed. If the wire is broken you will know where the break is. You can add tests and save the additions as a profile. So I can make a profile for home and one for the office and one for xx client and so on. Just plug in and get answers in a few seconds.
Wish it were cheaper but then I guess there isn't a big audience for these kinds of things. I'm an individual and I bought it with my own money. A company should be buying these for their techs. You'll get a bit of sticker shock, but a tool like this is just makes a lot of sense. Techs can solve problems faster and be less stressed about troubleshooting a problem. That means they waste a lot less time which is good for the tech and the user waiting for resolution. I guess the buzz word is that it pays for itself. The stress factor is enough for me. I'd like to be able to easily troubleshoot connectivity. I'd like to know what's going on with the wire and what the port is. Unless you built the network yourself odd are you could use help understanding it.
-The LinkRunner works as a tone generator as well. You should probably purchase an Intellitoner Pro 200 to go with this for when you need to tone cables or switchports.
-The higher-end LinkRunner AT 2000 also does fiber, and some PoE tests, and comes with a rechargeable battery pack, which is insanely expensive as an add-on and is hard to find. If you do not need to test fiber, and are okay with using alkaline batteries, the AT 1000 will be fine for you.
-I have a couple of stacked Dell switches linked via fiber to another Dell switch where this tester traces back to the fiber uplink of the main switch rather than to the Cat5 ports of the stack. Unfortunately, Dell doesn't want to help me without their ProSupport, so I'm stuck there. This could be a Dell issue or a Fluke issue; I'm subtracting one star for it.
