NSA validates a cabling link for high performance Ethernet standards including 1 / 2.5 / 5 / 10GBASE-T. End-to-end Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) measurement provides a quick and objective assessment of link performance under network load condition. The Autotest feature of the NSA is the easiest way to ensure that a cabling link will the desired network rate.
Wireless access points (APs) are one of today’s most broadly deployed IoT devices and 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless APs require 2.5 and 5 GigE backbone speeds to run at maximum performance. Additionally, these devices can be PoE powered and by the nature of the link speed, require all four pair to be terminated.
- NSA’s Certi-Lite copper test uses most of the same ANSI/TIA 1152-A test parameters found in certification testing, but in a single ended Qualification+ test which includes DC Loop Resistance and DC Resistance Unbalance Pair-to-Pair, and can determine if the cabling infrastructure will support the required applications.
- NSA’s MultiGig Link Speed test can be used to verify link speed in accordance with IEEE 8023.bz specific to 1 / 2.5 / 5 / 10GigE, and verify loaded PoE++ in accordance with IEEE 802.3bt to 90W.
