Fluke Networks CIQ-100 CableIQ Qualification Tester. Copper qualification tester troubleshoots and qualifies cabling speed (10/100/1000/VoIP). The network tech's vision into cabling bandwidth: 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. That means network techs can close trouble tickets faster, reduce on-call time, and save money by better utilizing their existing infrastructure.
Reduce escalated problems by as much as 30%: CableIQ's powerful troubleshooting capability and intuitive interface enable your frontline technicians to identify and troubleshoot a wider range of problems within your infrastructure. Is the port active? Are the duplex settings matched? Is it a network problem or a cable problem? Can the cable support the required network bandwidth? CableIQ is the only tool that can answer all these questions before trouble tickets are escalated to the next level reducing problem escalation by up to 30%.
The CIQ100 CableIQ Service Kit provides the most powerful combination of cable and network test capabilities. With the breakthrough technologies built into CableIQ, LinkRunner, and IntelliTone, network trouble tickets can be closed faster than ever. First use LinkRunner to verify network connectivity and proper speed/duplex settings of connected devices (e.g. switch ports and PC NICs). Once the network devices have been verified, then use CableIQ to qualify the cabling link. If the cable does not qualify for the desired network speed (10/100/VoIP/Gig), CableIQ’s qualification test can be used to locate and troubleshoot performance faults (e.g. crosstalk or impedance faults). Before closing the trouble ticket, use CableIQ Reporter software to document completion of the job.
Qualifies - Sees if your existing cabling has the bandwidth to support voice, 10/100, VoIP or Gigabit Ethernet
Troubleshoots - shows why existing cabling cannot support the network's bandwidth requirement
(e.g. crosstalk at 11 meters)
Discovers - detects what's at the end of any cable and displays device configuration (speed/duplex/pairing)
Identifies unused switch ports that can be reallocated
Graphically maps wiring configuration and shows distance to faults with Intelligent Wiremap
Tests all copper cabling media: twisted-pair, coax, and audio cabling
