Network Transmission Tester - SignalTEK NT

Network Transmission Tester - SignalTEK NT image
  • Gigabit performance testing on passive cabling and active networks
  • Generates test reports to IEEE 802.3ab standard
  • Simulates VoIP/CCTV/Web/IP video network traffic
  • Tests connection speed, port ID, ping, traceroute, IPv4/IPv6
  • Advanced PoE/PoE+ testing

If you install, maintain or troubleshoot data cabling and Ethernet networks, SignalTEK NT allows you to prove the performance up to Gigabit Ethernet transmission rates.

By simulating actual network traffic users are able to test and document network and data cable performance to Gigabit Ethernet standards.

Where system warranties are not required the SignalTEK NT is a cost effective way of proving your copper and fibre networks provide error-free performance.

SignalTEK NT automatically generates test reports in PDF or CSV format. Use the free IDEAL AnyWARE™ app from IDEAL Networks to view / send data cable and network test reports to colleagues and clients anywhere.

Cable Installation

Cabling:

  • Network traffic performance test on copper and fibre to IEEE802.3ab standard
  • Wiremap test for open, shorts, miswires and split pairs to TIA-568 standard
  • Gigabit link verification for copper and fibre cabling

Active network:

  • Network load testing through switches simulating CCTV/IPTV/VoIP/Web traffic
  • PoE/PoE+ verification that displays available voltage at device location
  • Check Ethernet connectivity at device location to 10/100/1000 Mb/s
  • Verify network configuration (device IP/gateway address/subnet mask)
  • Switch port identification via LLDP/CDP protocols

Troubleshooting/Diagnostics

Cabling:

  • Distance to fault using TDR technology (copper only)
  • Ability to identify and trace cables with a compatible amplifier probe (62-164)
  • Optical power indication (with compatible SFP modules)

 Active network:

  • Network load testing through switches simulating CCTV/IPTV/VoIP/Web traffic
  • Stress test network before installing bandwidth hungry devices
  • Port blink to visually trace cable from work area outlet to network switch
  • Displays port ID of LLDP/CDP enabled switches to eliminate manual cable tracing
  • Identify network connection problems as hardware, network or configuration faults
  • Ping local network devices and Internet URL’s
  • Count number of hops between network points with traceroute tests
  • PoE load testing to confirm available power meets PoE device requirements

  • SignalTEK NT is used to quickly prove that Ethernet will work correctly after installation in cable installations such as SOHO or residential cabling where cable certification is cost prohibitive or where the end customer does not require the cable manufacturer’s warranty programs. 
  • Workstation or Laptop has an extremely slow network access. SignalTEK NT can be used to run a simplified transmission test to check network performance. 
  • A 100Mb/s LAN environment gets upgraded to 1 Gb/s. SignalTEK NT can be used to check if the existing (old) cabling can support up to 1Gb/s Ethernet. 
  • An existing LAN installation gets upgraded to VoIP. SignalTEK NT can be used to check if both the cabling as well as the active components can support VoIP traffic. 
  • After MACs (Moves/Adds/Changes) of active devices, SignalTEK NT can be used to ensure minimum bandwidth requirements are met. 
  • In industrial Ethernet applications, SignalTEK NT can be used to verify cabling performance to 100Mb/s or Gigabit requirements. 
  • SignalTEK NT can be used to test throughput of an industrial Ethernet LAN.
