CES logoFluke Networks has announced a low-cost pocket-sized network tester.

The LinkSprinter is a pocket-sized Ethernet network tester that identifies Ethernet problems in less than nine seconds.

Users simply connect an Ethernet cable, push a button and check Cloud, Gateway, DHCP, Switch, Link and Power over Ethernet (PoE) connection issues in under 10 seconds.

The simple LED interface indicates each test result with a green, yellow or red LED, while simultaneously sending detailed report information to the cloud and, optionally, smartphone via Wi-Fi.

The cloud management system tracks test results, providing a dashboard viewable from any remote location or smartphone. The user can even receive an email of the test results. No standalone application is required, as an embedded Wi-Fi hotspot within one of the LinkSprinter models allows any device with Wi-Fi and a browser to access detailed test results, even when Internet connectivity is spotty or down.
