Efficient Network Testing with New NaviTEK NT from IDEAL Networks

IDEAL Networks has launched a new series of NaviTEK® NT network testers, designed to help networking professionals quickly pinpoint and solve issues for both copper and fiber optic cabling.

“This is a more convenient and efficient alternative to network troubleshooting using a laptop or software tool,” explains Tim Widdershoven, IDEAL Networks Global Marketing Manager. “Not only is the NaviTEK NT tester compact enough to fit into small, restrictive areas where important cabling is often found, but it offers faster detection of link and IP information, and can detect services like ISDN (Integrated Services for Digital Network) and Power over Ethernet.”

NaviTEK NT can simply be connected to a network or plugged into a cable to clearly display useful information and an Autotest function makes initial testing quick and easy, running a suite of network tests. Summary information on the home screen provides an at-a-glance snapshot of the network.

The network tester also enables access to detailed network parameters, including LLDP and CDP port information, Power over Ethernet (PoE), VLAN detection and operation, and Ethernet utilisation, indicating broadcast network traffic in real time.

The Netscan feature displays the IP and MAC addresses of everything on the user’s network, and the Network Probe feature gives a visual illustration of the user’s network.

NaviTEK NT can also be used for accurate cable testing. Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR), is used to locate common wiring faults such as open and short circuits in copper cabling. For fiber optic cabling, NaviTEK NT shows the optical power received from the switch. An optional inductive amplifier probe detects tones generated by any NaviTEK NT to facilitate cable tracing and the hub blink feature will aid port identification.

Once testing is complete, test reports can be downloaded to a USB memory key or to an Android or Apple mobile device via the free IDEAL AnyWARE™ app. Users can view the PDF reports and send them using their preferred file sharing method including email or file sharing app. Cable installers and IT technicians can share test reports with project managers, resulting in greater collaboration, more on-time job completions and reduced costs.

IDEAL Networks provide data cable and network testers that simplify, demystify and improve the productivity of those installing, testing & maintaining network cabling & devices. To find out more visit www.idealnetworks.net.
