Network Infrastructure Testing
Whether installing a new cabling infrastructure, or troubleshooting existing cabling, cable testing plays an important role in the process. Common tests for network cabling include length, wiremap, attenuation, NEXT, DC loop resistance, and return loss.
As networks evolve, so do the requirements of the cabling infrastructure to support them. New standards are continuously being developed to provide guidelines for cabling professionals when installing, testing, troubleshooting, and certifying both copper and fiber. Whether it’s 1G, 10g or 40G solutions there are specific requirements and potential pitfalls in implementing these technologies. And 10GBASE-T, it becomes even more critical to keep current with the latest proliferations in cabling and cable testing.
Cable testing provides a level of assurance that the installed cabling links provide the desired transmission capability to support the data communication desired by our clients.
Levels of Cable Testing
Certification guarantees cabling system compliance to industry standards
Certification instruments are the only tools that provide “Pass” or “Fail” information in accordance with industry standards. We at NDE comply with the latest testing procedures and utilise Flukes latest equipment to give piece of mind that our installations meet the latest high standards.
Certification test tools determine whether a link is compliant with the category (TIA) or our preferred standard EN 50173. Certification is the final step that proves our structured cabling meets manufacturer’s requirements to grant their warranty for our Cabling Installations. The Fluke Cable Analysers we use have become the premier certification tester in the market for professional data communication installers.
