Coaxial Network Cable Tester
 

CableIQ Qualification Tester

Copper qualification tester troubleshoots and qualifies cabling speed (10/100/1000/VoIP).

  • Qualifies - Tests if your existing network cabling has the bandwidth to support voice, 10/100, VoIP or Gigabit Ethernet
  • Troubleshoots - shows why existing network cabling cannot support the network's bandwidth requirement (e.g. crosstalk at 11 meters)
  • Discovers - detects what's at the end of any network cable and displays device configuration (speed/duplex/pairing)
  • Identifies unused switch ports that can be reallocated
  • Graphically maps wiring configuration and shows distance to faults with Intelligent Wiremap
  • Tests all copper cabling media: twisted-pair, coax, and audio cabling

Overview

The network tech's vision into cabling bandwidth
CableIQ qualification tester is the first cabling bandwidth tester for network technicians. This network cable tester gives even the most novice tech the vision to see what speeds existing cabling can support, quickly isolate cabling from network problems, and discover what is at the far end of any cable. That means network techs can close trouble tickets faster, reduce on-call time, and save money by better utilizing their existing infrastructure.

Reduce escalated problems by as much as 30%
CableIQ qualification tester's powerful troubleshooting capability and intuitive interface enable your frontline technicians to identify and troubleshoot a wider range of problems within your infrastructure. Is the port active? Are the duplex settings matched? Is it a network problem or a cable problem? Can the cable support the required network bandwidth? CableIQ network cable tester is the only tester that can answer all these questions before trouble tickets are escalated to the next level reducing problem escalation by up to 30%.

"I had sporadic and unusual customer calls that would crop up every few months on a particular link. After reviewing my case logs for several months I started to notice that this link seemed to have issues more often than other links. There were reports of packet loss and other transient symptoms. In a moment of down-time I was able to bring my Fluke Tester down to the link in question and it passed the first two times I ran the test, but it failed on the third. Problem isolated, cable replaced. Thanks Fluke!"
