Carrier ethernet test set

Friday, 17 July, 2009



Fluke Networks has introduced the LinkRunner Duo CE carrier pocket ethernet test set, which it says reduces costs by offering a simpler go/no-go test set that permits fast, efficient and affordable testing of both fibre and copper links, while eliminating costly callbacks and the resulting troubleshooting sessions.

LinkRunner Duo CE is designed to go into the field with every technician who has to turn up and test a carrier ethernet service. The tester is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, lightweight and offers both low initial purchase price and low total cost of ownership.

A mini-USB port on the LinkRunner Duo CE allows software upgrades in the field in just minutes and optional gold support provides upgrades at no additional charge. LinkRunner Connect software records test results for easy preparation of customer documentation, showing the condition of the service as delivered.

It provides additional cost benefits by pinpointing problems on the customer side while the technician is still on site. Port identification, 802.1x testing, cable and connectivity tests and identification of speed and duplex mismatch issues all reduce finger pointing and callbacks.

For service providers engaged in fully testing carrier ethernet links, the LinkRunner Duo CE can act as a remote device for the MetroScope service provider assistant and other carrier ethernet test sets. It supports testing for ProVision, RFC 2544 and BERT across layer 1, 2, or 3 connections. It can be programmed to send back all frames, all non-broadcast frames, or only frames addressed to it and can be placed in the network without affecting service and replying only when tests are sent to it.
