SignalTEK 10G from Ideal Networks is a new handheld ethernet tester designed to measure the maximum bandwidth available on LAN networks, identify bottlenecks and find ways to increase bandwidth “without the need to replace expensive data cabling”.
By simulating actual LAN network traffic SignalTEK 10G enables users to test, troubleshoot and document network and data cable performance up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet standards.
With a max throughput test, the tester verifies what the maximum error-free bandwidth the cabling or infrastructure can support and establishes what hardware or applications would work on an existing link. Ideal claims this saves significant time and cost compared to replacing data cabling.
Once the upgrade is installed, SignalTEK 10G can be used again to test and prove performance to international standards.
With built-in Wi-Fi connectivity it connects to the free Ideal Anyware cloud test management system to generate professional reports for the client.
The Anyware Cloud management system also allows real time collaboration between Field Technicians and Project Managers, even those working from home.
Project Managers can pre-configure the jobs and tests in the Anyware Cloud from any web browser, eliminating potential mistakes and reducing the time taken to prepare reports for customers.
Via the TeamViewer Live Support feature, Project Managers can also connect from any location to SignalTEK 10G on the jobsite to troubleshoot failed links, minimising troubleshooting time and reducing call-backs. As well as providing accurate 10G transmission testing,
SignalTEK 10G can also be used as a wiremapper and for troubleshooting and maintenance of active and passive copper and fibre networks..
