Fluke Networks Revamps Premium-Priced Network-Testing Tool
The OneTouch AT has three buttons, only one of which a network technician needs to push to kick off a comprehensive set on wireless and wireline network infrastructure tests.
My test unit came with two copper ports, two empty slots for optional optical interfaces and an active wireless 802.11 a/b/g/n adapter.
This view shows from top to bottom: Secure Digital (SD) card slot, micro-USB, USB and headphone jack.
Seen from top to bottom are the RJ45 management port and AC power.

Capture and report data can be stored on this multi-format media adapter.
Optional Directional Antenna
The directional antenna and locating application can help track down access points.
