Fluke LinkRunner Duo CE Tester

A pocket-sized test set for turning up and troubleshooting carrier Ethernet circuits. Tests incoming links, customer networks and acts as a remote for performance testers.

Fluke LinkRunner Duo CE TesterProduct Capabilities

If you’re installing carrier Ethernet, you’ve been forced to choose between thorough testing of the service with a dedicated performance test set or plugging it in and hoping for the best.

Dedicated test sets allow your team to thoroughly test the links, but they can be costly, and “plug and pray” can result in callbacks and extended troubleshooting sessions.

Fluke Networks’ LinkRunner Duo CE Pocket Carrier Ethernet Test Set can reduce your costs and increase customer satisfaction. It’s designed to help technicians quickly turn up and troubleshoot Carrier Ethernet. And, it works with your existing performance testers when you need more complete testing.

Stop the Guesswork
Is it the link or the UNI that’s not working? Quickly verify the link integrity and signal strength. Was the link provisioned properly? Use PING to verify connectivity to expected devices, response time, and VLAN settings. Suspect a customer equipment problem? LinkRunner Duo CE quickly finds speed and duplex mismatches, authentication and addressing problems, and bad ports on copper or fiber.

Get more out of your test sets
Use LinkRunner Duo CE as a remote target for performance testers such as the Fluke Networks MetroScope™ and those from other manufacturers. It supports even the most complex RFC 2544 and ProVision™ tests including multiple streams, TOS and VLAN settings on Layer 1, 2, or 3 network.
