The Swiss Army Knife for IT admins.
Pockethernet is here to help any IT admin dealing with Ethernet network installation and maintenance. It lets you check the ethernet link, find cable faults, PoE voltage, VLAN, DHCP results and much more with the press of a button. Finished? Then export those results in a detailed measurement report and send them to yourself or your client.
Ethernet network analyser
In the Box
1 Remote terminator (for Wiremap and BER tests)
Protective carrying pouch
USB cable for charging and firmware updates
50 cm Ethernet cable to connect to wall outlets
User manual in English
Wiremap including shield
Check whether pins on RJ45 jacks have been crimped in the correct order. Pockethernet as well tests the shield for continuity.
Advanced cable testing with only one end connected to Pockethernet. Determine how long a cable is and if it contains any short circuits, split pairs or bad terminations. Pockethernet also detects if a cable is connected to a switched-off computer or switch.
Generate a graph of signal reflections throughout the entire cable length. You can view the length of connected cables and any imperfections they may have (such as extenders or patch panels).
Set the VLAN tags, PCP and DEI for outgoing DNS, DHCP, HTTP and Ping .
Network discovery (CDP, LLDP)
View the content of CDP and LLDP messages to identify network ports more easily. If the switch port supports it, you can instantly view the connected chassis and port ID as well as the native VLAN.equests. View tagged and untagged traffic with the traffic monitor.
Find out if any pairs have a phone line or passive PoE connected to them. This allows you to detect services and to protect your network equipment.
PoE supply detection
Measure the presence and voltage of Power over Ethernet to ensure a sufficient power supply for your PoE devices.
Cable toner with customizable tones
Determine the location of cables in a wall and identify single cables in batches or at patch panels. You can set different tones and even control their volume to keep signals separate.
Bit error rate test (10/100/1000)
Real-world cable quality measurement at gigabit speeds. Measure packet length, payload and configure the number of test packets.
Let Pockethernet toggle the Link LED on switches and routers to easily find the cable you are looking for. Set the link speed to toggle a change of colour for the port
Link speed and duplex identification (10/100/1000)
Find out the Ethernet capabilities of that unused port you're wondering about and rule out duplex conflicts.
Link establishment test (10/100/1000)
Determine whether a link can be established at different speeds and make sure the wiring is up to date for gigabit.
DHCP, DNS, Ping, HTTP tests (10/100)
Test the network connection to see if you are able to get an IP address on a port, and connect to internal servers or the Internet.
Traffic detection (10/100)
View which other devices are reachable on a specific port, as well as the type and amount of traffic that is being directed there.
Generate PDF reports
Keep a detailed, up-to-date database and log of your work just by noting locations and port IDs.
Export your results
Email reports for your own records, or share them through a phone’s OS's native share menu with the press of a button. No more lost reports, tedious downloads from the device or manual editing.
