Network testing is more complex now than ever. The foundation of any Ethernet network is the physical cabling. So much of our daily lives depends on reliable, fast network connections. Unfortunately, as networks become faster and faster, they are more susceptible to disruption. The IDEAL family of companies designs testers to be quick, intuitive, and easy to use. From installation testing to troubleshooting, Ideal’s comprehensive line of network testers delivers productivity, value and reliability.
The newly released SignalTEK CT proves that cables can transmit Gigabit Ethernet at full speed with no errors by performing data transmission and wiremap testing. Simply by pressing the “Autotest” button, over 823,000 data frames are transmitted between the two handsets. Any transmissions errors against IEEE 802.3ab standards are reported automatically. Autotest also measures link length and tests for faults (i.e. crossed or split pairs, opens, and shorts). For an installer, this is a cost-effective way to confirm the cabling has been installed correctly and is capable of supporting all Ethernet applications. For the network owner, SignalTEK CT provides peace of mind by assuring the installed cable will support bandwidth hungry services like VoIP, video streaming, and IP CCTV.
