The LinkRunner G2 Smart Network Tester simplifies network validation and the configuration of copper and fiber Ethernet networks, streamlining workflows by combining essential functions of installation and triage in a single, ruggedized unit. The LinkRunner G2 features an intuitive design that runs Android-based apps with smartphone-like features. This next-generation tester will help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of network operations by accelerating network deployment and problem identification.
The LinkRunner G2 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 G2 displays critical nearest switch information include:
– Switch name and model
– Switch chassis, slot, and port #
– Switch IP Address
– VLAN’s supported
– Duplex and speed (actual and advertised)
– Signal strength
– Connection (MDI or MDI/X)
– PoE voltage and power (actual and test limit)
LinkRunner G2 is the first field tester able to validate loaded PoE performance by drawing actual power up to 802.3bt 90W across all four pairs. Load the circuit to stress switches, cabling, and patch panels, all while measuring the voltage and pairs being used. Using the TruePower test to validate the power delivery before installing IoT connected devices ensures a smooth deployment and helps to alleviate finger-pointing.
The LinkRunner G2 Li-ION battery can be charged via PoE and can power up in standby mode within a second. Enhanced, user-defined AutoTest can perform a required set of connectivity tests within seconds. The LinkRunner G2 Smart Network Tester enables you to quickly and accurately validate network health, and solve problems fast.
– PoE loaded test up to 90W
– Link speed and duplex (actual and advertised)
– RX pair, polarity, and signal level
– 802.1x authentication
– Discover the nearest switch/slot/port and Data/Voice VLAN
– DHCP discovery with vendor classification ID and Option 60 and 150 response, and show subnet and DHCP server addresses
– Gateway and DNS server availability and responsiveness
– Ping or TCP port connectivity tests to an unlimited number of user-defined targets
The LinkRunner G2 packet reflector mode can be used as a remote device during end-to-end network path performance tests to validate LAN and WAN throughput capabilities up to 1Gbps.
LinkRunner G2 supports packet reflection for:
– OptiView® XG Network Analysis Tablet
– OneTouch™ AT Network Assistant
VLAN Monitor & Packet Capture
The LinkRunner G2 can monitor and show traffic distribution of the top 9 VLANs and capture 2GB of packets at line-rate.
Serving as a centralized test results and device management system, the complimentary Link-Live cloud service transforms team workflows with the ability to quickly and easily log, document, and report test activity from all LinkSprinter, LinkRunner AT, LinkRunner G2, AirCheck G2, and OneTouch AT hand-held network testers. Once the instrument is connected to the Link-Live Cloud Service, your test results are automatically uploaded to the dashboard for project management and reporting. You have the option of uploading additional files, screenshots, images, profiles, packet captures, location information, and comments anytime. Also, certain NetAlly instruments with AllyCare Support can receive firmware updates “over the network” from Link-Live as they become available.
An API is available to retrieve and integrate data from Link-Live into other management platforms, such as your trouble-ticket application or network management system. This gives you the ability to easily provide proof-of-performance and better manage jobs and staff efficiency.
This unified dashboard of both wired and Wi-Fi network connectivity results enables you to:
– Reduce results management overhead for multiple testers and users
– Enables seamless collaboration between site personnel and remote experts
– Simplify report generation across media types for network deployment documentation
– Attach photos, user comments to each result, adding context for future changes and troubleshooting
– For asset management, ability to associate serial numbers of installed devices, and/or cable/wall jack label to specific test results
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 a new class of Network Tester, with 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. Below is a comparison chart between LinkRunner G2 vs. the LinkRunner AT 1000 / 2000.
