Copper cable in data networks my seem simple but the reality is that it is pretty high tech today. Consider that we are able to push upto 10 Gigabits per second (and more) across copper. At these speeds the wire becomes a decent antenna when configured incorrectly. This creates problems within our data networks.
Our range of certification and test tools helps pin point issues quickly. The following guide helps determine what solutions are needed:
Certification indicates that a test is done according to some standard that is traceable. The cable is tested according to the standard needed and you will get a certificate or report indicating pass or failure according to the standard with an indication as to how close to the standard your cable came.
Certification is a necessity if any new installation is done.
Versiv™ ProjX™ Taptive™ LinkWare™
Cable IQ Qualification Tester
When there is a requirement to check if a cable can do a certain speed then a “qualification” tool is required.
CableIQ 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.
Reduce On-Call Time Utilize Infrastructure Graphically Maps Wiring Device Configuration
MicroScanner² Cable Verifier
Sometimes it is necesary to check that the cable still maps correctly. So essentially we want to find out if all the pairs/wires within the cable are connected. For this we provide “verification” tools.
Next-generation MicroScanner verifies voice/data/video cable and services with a revolutionary user interface.

On a different note, this is just to say thank you for advising us to get the DSX 5000. The advice you gave after hearing our requirements was spot on. Our engineer is back from the Central Africa and had interesting interactions with the clients where 35% of the cabling failed tests due to length exceeding 100m and insertion loss errors. The client was very impressed with the quality that these tests have added to our delivery.I trust arming ourselves with Fluke tools and training will soon see us changing the order of the game for a small company in our space.

When installing copper cable network systems one needs to adhere to certain industry standards. This process is known as certification. In order to effectively gather this information one needs a reliable testing tool which delivers a simple “pass” or “fail” outcome. Not only will this ensure that your network is in compliance with industry standards, but it will also ensure that the network owner is protected while placing the network in the best possible position for future optimisation.
Testing is a vital process in evolving copper cable networks. These networks are always developing and growing, and in order to optimise these networks effectively one needs to test said network to identify its weaknesses. As a result, this testing is not simply reserved for new networks. On the contrary, it is crucial that old copper cable networks are regularly tested in order to constantly develop and upgrade. Therefore, testing is an extremely important process if you are concerned about the wellbeing and efficiency of your network, and a process that should not be overlooked.
Testing is also a crucial process in terms of troubleshooting your network. In this sense testers are not only used to certify installation, meaning the technician has evidence that the network has been established which he may then present to the network owner, but they are also used to pinpoint specific problems. Once these problems have been identified they can be easily rectified. In another sense, there is no doubt that technology is constantly evolving. This constant growth means that there is now a greater need, especially in business, to keep current and up to date with the latest developments in copper cable testing.
So, as you can see the need for effective, reliable and informative testers is vital. We supply Versiv, among other testing products, which speed up the certification process towards acceptance. In addition, these products always allow you to have control and manage multiple projects at one time. Ultimately, this superior control and design ensures that one can get the desired job done right the first time. This conserves time, saves money and eliminates unnecessary errors.
We have an extensive range of world-class copper cable testing products. Take a look through our available testing tools in order to choose the right option for you.
