The Fluke Networks CIQ-VOIP CableIQ Enterprise Service Kit with CableIQ qualification tester, NetTools Series II network tester, and IntelliTone Pro 200 probe qualifies existing cabling for support of voice, 10/100, VoIP, and gigabit Ethernet services. The CableIQ qualification tester tests the transmission capabilities of voice, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, VoIP, or CATV on copper cabling, including twisted-pair, 75Ω coax, and audio cabling. Its autotest function qualifies cabling in less than 4 seconds. The meter identifies wiremap faults, bridge taps, and port characteristics; detects and displays the strength of RF coaxial television signals; and automatically reports whether the cable is connected to a device. A wiremap function supports up to seven unique ID numbers and can be performed to verify that cables are installed correctly. The MultiMap function tests multiple segments through bridge taps to detect faults on individual conductors. The tester detects and locates crosstalk faults on twisted-pair cabling and impedance faults on twisted-pair and coaxial cabling. The continuity toner tests security switches at door and windows and the speaker test verifies speaker connections. The port light on a hub or switch blinks to verify connectivity and cable routing. The built-in toner function works with standard analog probes to locate and isolate cables behind walls, at patch panels, or in bundles. The IntelliTone function works with optional Fluke Networks ITK100 and ITK200 probes. The meter stores up to 250 sets of test results. An autosave function ensures that test results are captured and saved. Results can be downloaded to a computer for long-term records retention, or imported to the CableIQ Reporter software for analysis and generation of certification reports to provide evidence that the installation has been completed according to standards and best practices (software and USB cable included). Copper and fiber testers are used by network technicians to troubleshoot, maintain, and optimize performance of copper and fiber optic cabling, hardware connections, and network settings in enterprise networks.
When you deploy Voice over IP (VoIP) or Gigabit Ethernet, you want to make sure that the existing cabling will support the bandwidth requirements of your new equipment. Your cabling was certified, but moves adds and changes have rendered many links incapable of running desired speeds. CableIQ quickly reveals whether a link, including patch cords, is qualified for voice, 10/100BASE-T, VoIP, or Gig. Knowing your cabling's bandwidth capabilities before upgrading can prevent countless hours of future downtime and labor hours wasted on unnecessary troubleshooting.
Plug into any cable, patch panel, or wall jack and see both the cable details (length/wiremap) and far-end device details (speed/duplex settings) at once. A series of both cable and network test functions help you isolate connectivity problems. For instance, if Discover mode shows duplex settings are matched but the problem persists, run Autotest to see if the cabling can support the required bandwidth. If a link is not qualified, CableIQ provides detailed information on the nature and location of cabling performance faults such as crosstalk or large impedance changes. With CableIQ your techs can close trouble tickets faster by cutting cable troubleshooting time in half.
The NetTool Series II inline VoIP network tester isolates and diagnoses network device and application connectivity issues, troubleshoots gigabit-to-the-desk deployments with dual 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps Ethernet interfaces. The tester detects and flags unexpected ports and network traffic to identify suspicious activity caused by spyware, malware, and viruses. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) measures current and voltage and displays pair information either in-line or single-ended. The VoIP functionality monitors IP phone boot-up and VoIP conversations, and measures key call quality metrics including jitter and dropped packets. The tester qualifies links for VoIP during pre-deployment assessments. Wiremap functionality verifies that cables are installed correctly and displays distance to faults. The meter is powered by four AA alkaline batteries (included).
The IntelliTone Pro 200 probe detects IntelliTone digital signals, rejecting noise and false signals, to locate and trace data cabling on active networks. It detects 500 to 1,200 Hz analog signals to isolate individual wire pairs and trace voice, audio, and video cabling on non-active networks. The probe detects signals at cable racks, in patch panels, and even behind walls, and identifies detected signals audibly and with eight LEDs that light successively as the signal strength increases for prompt isolation of a single cable within a bundle. A sync LED shows battery strength at power-up and confirms reception of IntelliTone signals, and the cable map function allows the probe to validate the cable map on RJ11 and RJ45 connectors, testing continuity and finding shorts, opens, and crossed-pair wiring faults on all four pairs of UTP and STP twisted pair cabling. RJ11 and RJ45 jacks plug into a port on the bottom of the probe. The probe turns off automatically after one hour of inactivity.
