Dolph’s Pick: Fluke Connectivity Tester

I see a new generation of test equipment emerging, and Fluke Networks is leading the way with its compact network device called the LinkSprinter. What can I say about this new and cool piece of test equipment? It is small, very versatile and reasonably priced. Yes, you heard me right; this is something every tech should be able to budget for. First, what makes this a new concept is that it connects to a tech’s smartphone via a free cloud-based service. What can it do? It can check PoE, perform an extensive network switch test, DHCP server testing, gateway connection testing and Internet/cloud connectivity, verifying DNS server lookup and application ports. All this information can be accessed and read via the cloud by the tech manager or other support personnel.
