Fluke Networks LinkSprinter Continues to Impress Industry Experts, Garner More Honors
31.08.2015

The LinkSprinter network tester from Fluke Networks has recently been named a finalist for two industry awards. In addition to being named Best in Show runner-up in the Testing category at Interop Tokyo, LinkSprinter has won the Voice, Data, and Video (V/D/V) Test and Measurement Equipment category for Electrical Construction and Maintenance (EC&M) Magazine’s 2015 Product of the Year Awards. As a category winner, the LinkSprinter is now eligible for the overall Product of the Year award, which EC&M will announce in August.

EC&M Magazine began its Product of the Year competition in 2000 to recognize excellence and innovation in product design, safety, and efficiency. A panel of electrical professionals from the engineering, contracting, and plant facilities and maintenance industries evaluated each of the entries submitted in 2015. The LinkSprinter 200 earned top honors in the V/D/V Test and Measurement Category for its speed in helping technicians test and validate network connectivity in less than ten seconds. It is one of 42 categories represented in this year’s awards, and EC&M subscribers will determine the Product of the Year Platinum, Gold and Silver Awards by voting in an online poll. EC&M will announce the winners in August 2015.

Interop-s Best of Show Award is highly competitive and aims to identify products, solutions, services and companies that best represent the theme of the event and key trends in the industry. The Interop Tokyo award recognizes those companies with products and solutions that meet the stringent technology advancement and product quality requirements of the Japanese market.

"Feedback from customers about the way they work and what they need in a connectivity tester played a huge role in the design process of the LinkSprinter," said James Kahkoska, CTO of Portable Network Tools at Fluke Networks. "We set out to make this device small, affordable, rugged and easy to use, and our customers tell us we succeeded. To receive customer confirmation and industry validation of our approach to LinkSprinter is truly an honor. "

The LinkSprinter 200 provides easy-to-understand network connectivity testing using a single button and five LED indicators to give troubleshooting information for Power over Ethernet (PoE), link to the switch, DHCP, Gateway and Internet connections. The LinkSprinter 200 has a built-in WiFi access point so users can instantly access additional details such as VLAN, switch name and port, via the browser on any smart device. The LinkSprinter line of products includes a lower-priced LinkSprinter 100 model without built-in Wi-Fi, and a LinkSprinter 300 model (introduced earlier this year that adds features such as cable length and status, as well as the ability to flash the hub port).

All LinkSprinter models connect to the Link-Live Cloud Service for test results management and storage where they can’t be lost or accidentally deleted. Link-Live offers two levels of service:

  • Link-Live Essentials is a free service offering a standard set of capabilities and reporting
  • Link-Live Job Pro is a subscription-based service that includes all Link-Live Essentials functionality and adds organizational tools such as job folders, the ability to attach sticky comments and photos to test results, and more customizable reporting.
  • Link-Live consolidates test results from all LinkSprinter models and the LinkRunner AT Network Auto-Tester into a browser-based dashboard.

Since its introduction in early 2014, the LinkSprinter has garnered numerous industry awards for its portable design, ease of use and affordable pricing. For more information about the LinkSprinter network tester, visit the LinkSprinter home page.
