Work With the Best
Levels of Cable Testing
What are the Types of Cable Testing?
Requirements for the cabling infrastructure evolve, and so do the networks. As a result, new standards for cabling professionals are continuously introduced for cable installation, testing, troubleshooting, and certifying network cables.
That's why cable testing & cable certification is best done by certified professionals, who can perform all procedures according to the latest guidelines & standards.
Some of the common tests for datacom cables include wire-map cable test, cable attenuation testing, NEXT cable testing, DC loop resistance testing, return loss testing etc.
Specific requirements exist for the for various technologies - 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 1000-BASE-T - each has it's own pitfalls and things to watch for.
Who Can Benefit From Network Cable Testing & Certifications?
Cable testing provides a level of assurance that the network cables that were installed in your office, data center or another facility indeed provided the needed transmission and can support the needs of your enterprise.
In our experience, the majority of the network faults are not due to a coffee spill, it's due to faulty cabling. Faulty connections, splices, and data transfer issues are some of the most common problems we see with network cables.
This way almost any institution that has a network cabling infrastructure in place can benefit from the network cable maintenance & network cable testing services.
Our frequent customers include:
New & relocating offices
Industrial sites & manufacturing facilities
Other facilities that have network cables setup
What Types of Cable Testing Exist?
Network cable testing is available in three levels - cable certification, cable qualification and cable verification.
Cable Certification - a process designed to verify cable compliance to the industry standards. Tools used for the cable certification process provide the Pass or Fail verdict. The cable certification process also determines if the specific cable link is compliant with the ISO or TIA standards. Certification is the last step in providing warranties for the new cable installation.
Cable Verification - is my cable connected properly? In the cable verification process, our experts determine if a given cable link is connected to the proper termination points. During this process issues like split pairs are identified. In some cases, additional functions may be provided, for example - determining the length of a cable or the distance to break or short a circuit.
Cable Qualification - can my cables support the required speed & technology? The newest category. This way, we determine if existing cables can support Gigabit Internet, VoIP standards or Fast Ethernet (100BASE-TX standard) requirements. Powerful qualification testers we use determine cabling bandwidth, as well as identify defects that affect the bandwidth.
