• At Softing, our mission as a manufacturer of IT infrastructure measurement technology is to optimize your work processes whether you are certifying copper and fiber optic cables after installation with the WireXpert, or troubleshooting a copper or coax office network with the NetXpert Ethernet network tester. Our handheld certifiers and testers are approved by vendor independent testing and by internationally recognized test labs.  Make the switch to Softing and join the cable installers and network operators around the world that are now experiencing improved efficiency and an optimized work process.

  • WireXpert 4500

    Softing’s hand-held WireXpert certifies network communication cable installations for offices, malls, stadiums, universities, and industrial facilities. The WireXpert platform is the only certifier on the market that comes with the Dual Control System™ standard.  The Dual Control System™ increases your efficiency on every project with a graphical display, and control, on both certifiers at both ends of the cable. 

    WireXpert is available as a copper network only certifier, or in a version that certifies both copper and fiber optic cables. WireXpert is deployable today for Standard CAT 8, Class I, and Class I in data centers. A range of quick-change adapters equip the WireXpert with numerous functions for copper and fiber optic measurements including adapters for Class FA, M12 and Coax as well as MPO/MTP, EF multimode and single mode. 

    FiberXpert OTDR 5000

    Additional measurements and troubleshooting for company networks using fiber optics can be performed with Softing’s FiberXpert OTDR 5000. The optical reflectometer tests multimode and single mode fibers in short measurement times, saving time and money. The fiberXpert provides graphical display and depiction of fiber optic component, fault, and distance to fault.

  • Softing’s NetXpert is a complete solution for network operators to manage and troubleshoot copper and coax network communication cabling.  NetXpert qualifies Ethernet cabling to rates up to 1Gb/s with a pass/fail result you can document.   NetXpert determines S/N ratio, measures delay skew, distance to fault, and provides wiremap.

    Testers for data, telephony and TV cables are available from the CableMaster product family. Two models in different configurations offer copper and coax cable testing and network diagnosis functions.

  • Based on careful consideration of reliability, market reputation, and over-all cost of ownership, I made the decision to move to the Softing WireXpert 4500 for the IES National Services Team. The service team does everything from small adds, moves, and changes, to roll-outs consisting of several hundred locations nationally. The Dual Control System feature of the Softing WireXpert has allowed us to work more efficiently with less interruption for the customer. The labor efficiency alone has increased our margins while reducing costs for the customer. And our technicians have found the software to be intuitive and especially appreciate the light weight and durability of the units. Thank you, Softing, and I would appreciate it if you didn’t sell to my competition!!!
