Super Product and Time Saver
Pros: Great trouble shooting tool. Reduces the time tracking down network drop to switch port. Displays real time network switch info, port, vlan, speed, duplex etc. Also identifies if POE is enabled. Can display complete detailed switch port info in less than 30 seconds.
Cons: There is a firmware/software issue when checking vlans on the CISCO Nexus series switches. The unit detects LLDP first and discards CDP. I am working with the Product Director at Fluke and they are working on a solution.
Other Thoughts: If you are going to be testing fiber, there is a kit that includes a fiber scope, fault locator, light source and power receiver.
