When connected with Link-Live, you can also add comments to your testing results for further documentation.
When paired with your mobile device, users can view a detailed depiction of the cable it is connected to, showing each cable pair, cable length, and any misswires such as opens, shorts, or split pairs.
Pair your LinkSprinter with your mobile device to discover detailed information on:
– Port name
– Nearest switch name, port #, and link speed
– PoE voltage
– DHCP server, DNS server, and gateway address
– Server addresses
Speed & Duplex
The LinkSprinter can test the actual link speed against the advertised speed of a switch. First, the Link Test LED will turn yellow, indicating a warning. Then, detail test results can be obtained via Link-Live and will show the advertised versus the actual link speed when a Gigabit Switch port is only capable of linking at 100 Mbps.
Not being able to connect can be caused by an open, short, or split pair. Using the LinkSprinter, users can further troubleshoot the problem by performing a cable test.
LinkSprinter Team Packs
The LinkSprinter was designed to be a personal tool that allows organizations to become more efficient at problem identification and trouble ticket escalation from the PC help desk on up.
Outfit your entire staff – Team packs include quantities of 5 or 10 units at a discounted price. (See Models & Accessories for more information). Note: The LinkSprinter holster is sold separately.
Blink Light on Switch Port
Verify the connection path between the jack location and the switch port using the LinkSprinter. LinkSprinter will identify the switch name and port number by analyzing the CDP/LLDP packet from the switch. The tester can blink the link light on the switch port it is connected to, allowing users to identify the full connection path.
