Fluke Networks today announced a handheld dedicated wireless LAN test set.

The AirCheck Wi-Fi Tester can verify and troubleshoot 802.11 a/b/g/n network availability, connectivity, channel utilization and security settings. Its interface uses a 2.8-inch full color LCD screen and a menu-based system navigated using five buttons.

The AirCheck tester allows users to identify coverage and connectivity problems, find unauthorized or rogue access points (APs), see overloaded networks and channels, detect interference and validate security settings.

Fluke claims that the AirCheck can be used by network support staff irrespective of their level of WLAN training and expertise. The tester has a five-hour battery life and is suitable for one-handed use. Testing sessions can be saved and downloaded via a USB port to a PC for report generation or archiving with included AirCheck Manager software.

The AirCheck will be available in the second quarter at an MSRP of $1995.
