LinkRunner® AT

Network & Cable Tester

Network cable and link testing has never been easier with NetAlly’s LinkRunner AT. This network tester validates copper and fiber Ethernet connections in less than 10 seconds.

About the LinkRunner AT:

LinkRunner AT lets network technicians run pre-set tests for a wide range of important tasks. Its automated testing can quickly test cables and identify switches, making it easier to find and solve connectivity problems.

Test results can be automatically sent to the Link-Live™ collaboration, reporting and analysis platform, helping network engineers and technicians work together more effectively. It improves job visibility, project control, and fleet management. LinkRunner AT can also be used as a network PoE tester.

Home Screen

This is the Home Screen

The LinkRunner AT is a rugged, fast, and complete copper and fiber Ethernet network connectivity tester. It performs an essential set of network connectivity tests, enabling you to quickly and accurately identify and solve network connectivity problems.

Home Screen


Allows you to quickly validate switch connectivity and configuration.

Quickly view switch information, such as name/port, detected link speed/duplex, and VLAN configuration. If PoE is enabled, test the power that the switch can offer under load, against what the switch advertises.

Switch - Flashport

Flash Port

Causes the switch port on which the LinkRunner At is connected to flash rapidly.

Quickly and easily identify on which switch port the LinkRunner AT is connected.



Runs a suite of functional tests, from PoE, link to network service availability, and support drill down for detail results. Result can be saved on unit or upload to the complimentary Link-Live Cloud Service.

Reduces time and effort by replacing the need to use multiple tools and follow multiple procedures to functionally verify the network’s ability to support clients or IoT devices.

AutoTest - Add Device

Add Device

Add targets for which you want to validate availability.

Simplify the process of validating available network resources on the intranet or even the internet.



Validate cable wiring and distance, or identify cable faults.

Quickly identify cable faults like opens, shorts, or split pairs. You can also validate the wiremap, cable length, or see if the other end of the cable is connected to a switch/station.

Cable - Tone


Apply a tone to the cable.

Simplify the process of tracing a cable by applying different types of tones. No need to disconnect the cable from the switch.



Provides multiple configuration options, such as date/time, language, PoE, IP Address and VLAN, etc.

Quickly adjust to your test environment by easily creating configuration profiles that can be used when needed.

Tools - POE

PoE Configuration

Select PoE Class to test against.

Easily validate PoE configuration by selecting the class you want to test against. You can also use the TruePower option to actually measure the voltage being received.

The LinkRunner AT Network AutoTester is available in two models: LRAT-2000 and LRAT-1000.


Features LinkRunner AT-2000
Several features of the LinkRunner AT-2000 cannot be added to the LinkRunner AT-1000.

These exclusive features of the LinkRunner AT-2000 include:

  • Fiber support TruePower™ PoE Power Test up to 30W (PoE cable tester)
  • IPv6 support Reflector support
  • More reports: 50 instead of 10
  • Uses Li-ION rechargeable battery instead of an AA battery pack

Locating Cables
Find cable routes using toning, switch port advertisement, switch port link light blinking, and remote cable identifiers. Toning supports both analog and digital IntelliTone modes.

Cable Wire Mapping and Length Measurement
Verify the integrity of patch cables by utilizing the wiremap port, which allows for pin-to-pin connection checking, as well as measuring length, detecting shorts, opens, and split pairs in the installed wiring.

Effortlessly identify opens, shorts, miswires, and split pairs through three distinct methods:

  1. On non-terminated cables.
  2. Using a WireView Cable Identifier.
  3. Through the built-in wiremap port located on the side of the LinkRunner AT.


The LinkRunner AT offers a packet reflector mode, which enables you to conduct end-to-end network path performance tests remotely. This mode validates LAN and WAN throughput capabilities up to 1Gbps. The reflector mode can be configured to swap MAC and/or IP addresses.


LinkRunner AT-2000 supports packet reflection for:

  • OneTouch™ AT Network Assistant
  • EtherScope™ Network Assistant
  • Any device generating 802.3 frame or IP packet streams


While the LinkRunner G2 and LinkRunner AT are both network testers that help IT and System Integrators verify and troubleshoot Ethernet access networks, the LinkRunner G2 is has an Android-based operating system and a smartphone-like user interface. The LinkRunner G2 includes test features that provide visibility, versatility, and value beyond the LinkRunner AT. Explore the full product comparison.
