Fluke Networks CIQ-KIT CableIQ Advanced IT Kit
CableIQ qualification tester is the first cabling bandwidth tester for network technicians. It 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.
- Documents that residential cabling systems are defect-free and TIA-570B compliant
- Qualifies - Tests if your existing cabling has the bandwidth to support voice, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, VoIP, or CATV
- Graphically maps wiring configuration and shows distance to faults with Intelligent Wiremap & TDR
- Tests all copper cabling media: twisted-pair, coax, and audio cabling
- Locate and trace cables with IntelliTone digital signaling technology (Requires IntelliTone 200 Digital Probe)
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 tool that can answer all these questions before trouble tickets are escalated to the next level reducing problem escalation by up to 30%.
When to use a qualification tester
If you are a network technician, and need to see whether the existing cabling will support your 1000BASE-T network, a qualification tool is the right choice. If you need to troubleshoot connectivity problems and isolate cabling problems from network problems, then qualification is the perfect solution. If you have an existing network and are doing small adds, moves, and changes, or are setting up a temporary network and just need to qualify it for a specific network technology, a qualification tool is a good option.
When you deploy Voice over IP (VoIP) or Gigabit Ethernet, you want to make sure that the existing cabling will support the bandwidth requirements of your new equipment. Your cabling was certified, but moves adds and changes have rendered many links incapable of running desired speeds. CableIQ quickly reveals whether a link, including patch cords, is qualified for voice, 10/100BASE-T, VoIP, or Gig. Knowing your cabling's bandwidth capabilities before upgrading can prevent countless hours of future downtime and labor hours wasted on unnecessary troubleshooting.
Plug into any cable, patch panel, or wall jack and see both the cable details (length/wiremap) and far-end device details (speed/duplex settings) at once. A series of both cable and network test functions help you isolate connectivity problems. For instance, if Discover mode shows duplex settings are matched but the problem persists, run Autotest to see if the cabling can support the required bandwidth. If a link is not qualified, CableIQ provides detailed information on the nature and location of cabling performance faults such as crosstalk or large impedance changes. With CableIQ your techs can close trouble tickets faster by cutting cable troubleshooting time in half.
The CableIQ tester's 'intelligent wiremap' feature tests for length, shorts, split pairs, or opens and displays with an intuitive graphical interface where a fault is located. Unlike other testers that just show a series of numbers for a wiremap, the unit displays an easy-to-read graph with distance to faults proportional to the cable length. It also identifies breaks and shorts by pin, rather than by pair. This dramatically reduces the time to locate and troubleshoot a poorly terminated jack, or a break in the middle of a cable.
