Link-Live Cloud Service

Welcome to Link-Live Cloud Service, a centralized management, collaboration and archival workspace for network connectivity test results from NETSCOUT's Handheld network testers.

Test results are automatically sent to your secure Link-Live cloud account, providing organizations with a newfound ability to quickly and easily document their network, provide proof of performance and better manage jobs and staff efficiency. In addition, an e-mail of every test result is sent as it occurs, allowing the technician to annotate information about the test and even attached a photo. That annotation is then automatically added to that record in Link-Live, creating a very in-depth understanding as to the performance of each link and mapping endpoint images (wall jacks, devices, serial numbers) directly their switch slot and port.
