The CableIQ Advanced IT Kit is designed to maximize the efficiency of any cable qualification job. Use the included IntelliTone 200 Probe to find cables quickly and definitively, even on active networks. Use the included six smart cable IDs to perform a high volume of qualification tests in a short period of time. Each smart ID has the capability to perform a simple wiremap test or a full qualification test. Up to seven qualification tests can be performed without returning to the patch panel. The rugged carry case can be used to easily transport tools from one job to another.

First Cabling Bandwidth Tester for Network Technicians

As an IT professional, you have a tough balancing act. You’re an on-the-spot problem solver. And you’ve got your eye on future enhancements, seamlessly upgrading the network to higher speeds, while optimizing the current infrastructure. All this without adding staff and while working with smaller budgets.

That’s why Fluke Networks® designed CableIQ – an easy-to-use cable troubleshooting and bandwidth qualification tester specifically for network technicians. It has all the power you need to see whether your cable is qualified to support 10/100, VoIP or Gigabit Ethernet and quickly solve network connectivity problems in one intuitive, handheld tool.

CableIQ: See network infrastructure problems quickly

Isolate cabling problems from network problems. Save time and money by escalating fewer trouble tickets.

See existing cabling bandwidth. Four-second test quickly determines if your existing cabling can support voice/10/100, VoIP or Gigabit Ethernet.

Troubleshoot cabling performance faults. Determine why the existing cabling plant cannot support the desired network speed (e.g. connection fault at 7 feet).

Free up 10% or more of your switch ports. Discover what is at the far end of any cable, whether it is an open cable, a PC, an analog phone, or switch.

Detect speed/duplex mismatches in a matter of seconds. Determine a PC’s duplex settings and compare settings to the connected switch – all from one location.

Isolate faults easier with intelligent wiremap. Test for wiremap, length, shorts, split pairs or opens, and graphically see the distance to specific pin faults, such as “pin 1 break at 37 feet.”

Locate cables and wires with superior accuracy. Breakthrough IntelliTone™ digital signaling technology precisely locates cables in even the most chaotic wiring closet.

Empower frontline techs with an easy-to-use tool. Intuitive user interface and graphical display guides users with little or no training required.

Avoid disputes over cause of network problems. Save results or upload them to a PC with Cable IQ Reporter Software (included).

CableIQ gives network techs new vision into cabling bandwidth

CableIQ is the first cabling tool designed for network technicians who need to troubleshoot and qualify cabling bandwidth. It gives even the most novice tech 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 frontline technicians to identify and troubleshoot a wider range of infrastructure problems. 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.

Troubleshoot cabling faults in half the time

CableIQ shows you whether your cabling is qualified to support the network’s required bandwidth, and provides detailed information on the nature and location of cabling performance faults. Intelligent wiremap graphically displays the cable‘s wiring configuration, and shows the distance to opens and shorts. Advanced diagnostics also identifies and locates non-wiremap related connection faults, such as crosstalk or large impedance changes. Built-in IntelliTone digital technology allows you to tone and trace without disconnecting from the network. With CableIQ, your techs can close trouble tickets faster by cutting cable troubleshooting time in half.

Ensure a smooth transition to VoIP or Gigabit Ethernet

When you deploy Voice over IP (VoIP) or Gigabit Ethernet, you want to make sure 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.

Choosing the Right Tool for the Job

When to use a qualification tester: If you are a network technician, and need to see whether the existing cabling will support your 1000BASE-T network, a qualification tool is the right choice. If you need to troubleshoot connectivity problems and isolate cabling problems from network problems, then qualification is the perfect solution. If you have an existing network and are doing small adds, moves, and changes, or are setting up a temporary network and just need to qualify it for a specific network technology, a qualification tool is a good option.

When to use a certification tester: If you’re a commercial installer or network owner who needs to prove that all cabling has been installed correctly, and meets TIA or ISO link specifications, you must certify it. If you are in a troubleshooting environment, and need to show unequivocally that the link under test is failing category 5e or 6 performance requirements according to TIA or ISO standards, your only choice is a certification tool. If you have a mixture of fiber and copper cabling, and often need to test both, cable certification tools do that best.

To receive the support and financial security of a manufacturer’s warranty, certification to TIA/ISO standards is your only option. Anything else makes the installer liable for the performance of the installation which can be quite costly. For example, a large 1000 link installation could represent a $100,000 (USD) project, which can be a hefty liability if manufacturer warranty is not obtained.

When to use a verification tool: Verification tools are typically used by any technician who pulls and terminates cable or performs basic moves, adds and changes. These tools are used as a first line of defense in finding connection and wire-pairing faults.
