Product Overview: Fluke Networks CableIQ Qualification
Fluke Networks CableIQ Qualification Tester
Fluke Networks CableIQ qualification tester is the first cabling bandwidth tester for network technicians. This Ethernet network cable testergives 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%
Fluke Networks CableIQ qualification tester’s powerful network troubleshooting capability and intuitive interface enable your frontline technicians to identify and troubleshoot a wider range of problems within your network infrastructure. Is the port active? Are the duplex settings matched? Is it a network problem or a Ethernet cable problem? Can the Ethernet cable support the required network bandwidth? CableIQ network analyzer is the only Ethernet cable tester that can answer all these questions before trouble tickets are escalated to the next level reducing problem escalation by up to 30%.
- Qualifies – Sees if your existing cabling has the bandwidth to support voice, 10/100, VoIP or Gigabit Ethernet
- Troubleshoots – shows why existing cabling cannot support the network’s bandwidth requirement (e.g. crosstalk at 11 meters)
- Discovers – detects what’s at the end of any 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
Cable types supported
UTP, STP, FTP, SSTP, RG6, RG59, audio and security
1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 10BASE-T, VoIP, 1394b S100, TELCO, Wiremap only, Coax
Wiremap, length, cable signal performance, digital toner, analog toner, Ethernet port detection and identification, analog telephone detection, blink port light, continuity, speaker test, cable fault finding, video signal detection.
Can detect single wire faults and supports MultiMap mode with up to seven remote office identifiers. Draws proportional wire length to breaks. Detects split pairs.
Measures crosstalk and impedance and compares against appropriate limits based on qualification test selected. Detects location of large point sources as well as distributed sources in the cabling if they are sufficient to disqualify the application
Up to 250 qualification test results
