Fluke Networks expands network connectivity testing
Fluke Networks upgrade its LinkIQ Cable+Network Tester that expands the tester’s ability to test and troubleshoot IP networks, test industrial Ethernet cabling, and support users in 12 languages.
LinkIQ can now be configured to perform IPv4 or v6 ping tests and will display the response time for four pings to a target device of the user’s choosing. The test results display the DNS and DHCP servers and the gateway router. LinkIQ displays the IP address of the nearest switch. The new version of LinkWare PC includes this information in its test reporting.
“While systems integrators and network administrators need to verify cabling performance to ensure network performance, they also need to ensure that the user’s traffic can reach its destination,” stated Mark Mullins, product marketing manager and founding member, Fluke Networks.
“Our network test features give these professionals visibility into network connectivity and response time of key resources, allowing them to verify and troubleshoot end-to-end network issues.”
