IDEAL Networks R157001
SignalTEK 10G FT Ethernet Troubleshooter and Bandwidth Tester with Fiber Testing
IDEAL Networks R157001 SignalTEK 10G FT Ethernet Troubleshooter and Bandwidth Tester with Fiber Testing measures the maximum bandwidth of the network cabling up to 10 Gigabits per second. By simulating actual network traffic users can test, troubleshoot and document network and data cable performance up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet standards.
R157001 SignalTEK 10G FT has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity to connect seamlessly to the free AnyWARE Cloud test management system. AnyWARE Cloud offers pre-configuration to eliminate errors on-site, label printer connectivity to save time and create "proof of performance" PDF reports for clients.
Why do users need a 10G Ethernet Tester?
LAN networks are at risk of expensive downtime and lost productivity due to the ever-increasing demand of bandwidth hungry services such as video streaming, video conferencing, CCTV cameras and Wi-Fi access points. R157001 SignalTEK 10G FT will measure the maximum bandwidth available of the network, identify bottlenecks and discover opportunities to increase bandwidth without replacing expensive data cabling.
Increase the network speed from 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s
There are 111 billion metres of Cat5e/Cat6 cabling installed globally that is limited to 1Gb/s bandwidth speeds due to the current switches deployed. Upgrading to Multi-Gigabit switches could increase speed but it is unclear what bandwidth the existing cabling will support. Use R157001 SignalTEK 10G FT to verify what the data cabling will support (up to 10Gb/s) before spending money on new Multi-Gigabit switches that deliver 2.5/5/10Gb/s speeds.
What is the maximum error-free bandwidth the cabling / infrastructure can support?
The max throughput test takes the guesswork out of existing cabling infrastructure. With one test users can easily see what hardware or applications would work on an existing link saving time and reducing the cost of replacing expensive data cabling.
Meets network needs today and tomorrow
The R157001 SignalTEK 10G FT will help to increase network bandwidth without replacing expensive cable infrastructure, troubleshoot PoE and Ethernet issues and prove the maximum bandwidth up to 10 Gigabits per second.
PoE testing eliminates guesswork
The R157001 SignalTEK 10G FT eliminates guesswork when installing, maintaining and troubleshooting where PoE is deployed up to 90W (PoE++).
Adoption of Power over Ethernet (PoE)
In just a few short years we have seen many different applications increasing adopt PoE, such as monitors, digital signage, phones, security cameras, lighting and access control.
Previously technicians had to understand all the various standards, device power outputs and cable lengths to be sure a device will operate successfully.
The R157001 SignalTEK 10G FT identifies the Class of the PoE source and power available up to 90W to a PoE device regardless of cable length, cable quality or other factors. A clear pass/fail is provided to IEEE 802.3af/at/bt standards.
Verify fiber link speed for up to 1G or 10G, and measure optical power and data throughput.
- Validate fiber link speed - The fiber link speed test confirms the connection is 1G or 10G which can be affected by cable length or signal loss.
- Troubleshoot fiber cable issues - The optical power measurement is compared to the expected power level to determine attenuation in a fiber link. This indicates if the connector is dirty or damaged which is the number one cause of failure.
- Easy to understand traffic light status - The simple traffic light indicator displays Good, Marginal or Poor power level based on IEEE 802.3 1G/10G limits.
- Max throughput test - The SignalTEK 10G will prove the maximum available bandwidth over the fiber link up to 10Gb/s.
- Discover a faulty SFP - The SFP temperature is measured to help understand if it has become faulty.
Test Management Software
The AnyWARE Cloud management system allows real time collaboration between Project Managers and Field Technicians. There is no need for Field Technicians to setup the R157001 SignalTEK 10G FT, Project Managers pre-configure the jobs and tests in the AnyWARE Cloud, eliminating potential mistakes and compressing the time taken to prepare reports for customers.
TeamViewer Live Support
Project Managers can connect to a R157001 SignalTEK 10G FT on the jobsite using AnyWARE Cloud to troubleshoot failed links therefore minimising troubleshooting time, increasing collaboration and reducing call-backs.
Access can be granted to IDEAL Networks Technical Support to allow further troubleshooting if required.
