Once a communication infrastructure is installed, it must be measured and tested. This is necessary not only to ensure a good, reliable, and fast data connection, but also to comply with applicable standards and guidelines such as ISO, CENELEC, and TIA. For example, Kannegieter offers the modular Versiv CableAnalyzer from Fluke Networks, which facilitates the entire process of copper certification, fiber certification, Optical Loss Test Set (OLTS), and Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer (OTDR).
At the core of the Versiv portfolio is a Versiv Mainframe, which can easily be linked to inspection and certification modules. Examples include the DSX-5000 and DSX-8000 modules for certifying copper cabling up to Cat6a and Cat8, respectively. The CertiFiber Pro OLTS and OptiFiber Pro OTDR fiber optic inspection modules are also popular. The Versiv stands out for its fast testing time and high ease of use. Moreover, the system is designed so that certification processes can be streamlined. Thanks to full integration with the LinkWare PC Cable Test Management Software and LinkWare Live cloud service with an intuitive graphical user interface, IT project managers can easily set up the test modules remotely, track the progress of their tasks, and view real-time measurement and test results, based on which they can deliver a certified network.
All inspection and certification modules from Fluke Networks can be supplied with a GOLD Support warranty contract, which includes service and support, annual calibration, and replacement for calibration or defects as standard. This ensures that you are not surprised and that the operation and reliability of your measuring instruments and all accessories are always guaranteed.
Also popular in the Fluke Networks product portfolio is the LinkIQ network and cable tester for easily and quickly checking twisted-pair cabling and solving connectivity problems. The tool provides insight into cable performance such as maximum speed and the number of switches. In addition, the LinkIQ performs a diagnosis of the nearest switch to identify important network problems and validate the switch configuration. Additional features include analog and digital tone processing, Port Blink, 802.1x authentication, external cable IDs, and the ability to manage results via the LinkWare PC Cable Test Management Software.
To be able to measure and test wired and wireless systems at the protocol level, we offer various Ethernet testers from NetAlly. How is communication between connected switches and other components proceeding? Are the correct protocols being used? The NetAlly EtherScope makes it easy to understand! Also interesting is the NetAlly LinkRunner, which supports professionals in the field with their daily IT work, from receiving tickets and reading documentation to testing networks and documenting measurement results.
