Wireless access point speeds at the end of the network are out-pacing the speeds of the installed cabling in the middle of the network. Is it possible that your installed cabling will handle speeds beyond design spec and will keep up with speeds of the new wireless access points? Is it possible to leave your CAT 5e and CAT 6 cables in place, and achieve 10G speeds?
To find out, with the single press of a button, three key tests are run with the NetXpert XG. In one click, NetXpert XG performs a live speed test sending 10Gb/s through your 1Gb cable (BERT), and will prove if the cable will perform beyond design spec and keep pace with the speed of newly installed access points.
NetXpert XG is the only cable tester and active network manager to perform BERT (bit error rate test), SNR (signal-to-noise ratio), and delay skew to 10G speeds at the press of a button. Now you can perform real-time bit throughput tests to see if your 1G cables will run up to 10Gb.
By performing a Bit Error Rate Test (BERT) and standards based tests as per IEEE 802.3an, the NetXpert XG proves the error-free data transmission up to 10Gb/s. A one touch auto test includes BERT, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and delay skew, all of which can impact Gigabit transmission. Signal-to-noise ratio checks to ensure noise is low enough and signal is high enough for reliable transmission. Delay skew indicates the signal time delay between the wire pairs. Excessive delay from one pair can result in a serious degradation of transmission performance making it impossible for the receiver to interpret the data stream correctly. All three crucial measurements for determining reliable data transmission are performed at the touch of a button.
Continuity test results of all 8 wires and the shielding are displayed in wire map format in full color, while showing cable faults such as opens, shorts, miswires, and split pairs on a clear and easy to understand graphical display. NetXpert determines the cable length and the distance to faults performing full TDR (Time Domain Reflectometer) measurement in combination with a capacitance measurement, for increased accuracy.
Get Faster Results
The simple one touch autotest can be initiated either from the main unit or from the Active Remote, which saves time spent walking between outlets and reduces the overall task time. When troubleshooting, all cable tests can be performed individually to minimize fault-finding time.
The large high-resolution touch screen is visible in bright daylight and in poor lighting conditions. The 7" touch screen provides space to navigate with excellent readability of results.
Rugged casing with hanging straps
Equipped with hanging straps at both sides, the NetXpert XG allows for one-handed use, leaving a hand free to connect the NetXpert XG to the next cabling channel under test.
For troubleshooting active PoE++ networks, NetXpert XG offers a comprehensive tool set. This includes load tests for voltage drop to verify stability of PoE supplies, identification of the devices connected to the network, and detection of availability of critical devices such as IP cameras, wireless access points, and network routers.
NetXpert XG offers internal storage even for large projects and generates complete standards-based measurement reports.
Extensive accessories turn the NetXpert XG into the ultimate multi-tool – from locating individual cables with the built-in tone generator or the remote identifiers, to generating measurement documentation, and active network troubleshooting of PoE++ networks.
The NetXpert offers full flexibility regardless of whether you are measuring fiber or copper cabling. Using the available SFP/SFP+ ports, various active fiber tests such as protocol detection (CDP/LLDP), network ping test, and network discovery can be performed. In the area of passive tests, a throughput test of the fiber optic cabling is also possible.
NetXpert XG ensures platform extensibility for high-speed qualification.
The NetXpert XG offers simple firmware upgrades, and a license system allows for upgrades even after your initial purchase.
There are 3 license-able speed options: 1G, 2.5/5G, and 10G. The purchase of an upgrade license extends the speed of the device one step upwards.
All wear parts (e.g. RJ45 jack) can easily and conveniently be replaced.
