Fibre and copper cable testers are used to test and certify networks to identify faults and check that the network infrastructure cabling be it copper cable or fibre optic cable is giving optimum performance.
Many networking bids and Requests For Quote (RFQ) are citing cabling standards to a specific set of guidelines that the network installer must follow. Adherence to such standards is meant to ensure the quality of the installation and that the performance of the network will meet the requirement for which it was designed. In order to achieve this network installers must test and certify the network through the use of fibre and copper cable testers depending on the type of networking cable installed. High quality fibre and copper cable testers are able to test the network cabling including patch leads, identify any issues and store data that can be used to produce reports for certification.
