The JDSU ValidatorPRO-NT NT1155 builds on the capabilities of the JDSU Validator-NT, and offers a complete solution to test copper and fiber optic Ethernet network cables. The ValidatorPRO-NT Ethernet Speed certifier with integrated optical power meter and accompanying Plan-Um cable management software delivers the power to test both copper and fiber cabling, determine if cables can support Gigabit Ethernet, and perform troubleshooting for cable installations.
The ValidatorPRO-NT performs speed certification of the data-carrying capabilities of copper Ethernet network cables up to 1 Gb/s by testing for noise in the network, detecting faults in the cabling wiring, and ensuring that cables can support the speed capabilities of active equipment.
To certify Ethernet speed performance of cable runs the ValidatorPRO-NT conducts bit error rate (BER) tests by sending data packets down specified cable runs a defined data rates to check for errors at the maximum throughput of the link. The ValidatorPRO-NT also reports on signal quality that can impact high-speed data transmission by measuring signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Skew measurements provide the signal time delay between pairs that can impact Ethernet data transmission. The ValidatorPRO-NT delivers continuity testing that detects opens, shorts, miswires, split pairs, reversals, and high-resistive faults while measuring distance to faults and total cable length.
In addition, the ValidatorPRO-NT adds an integrated optical power meter that measures optical power at 850/1300/1310/1490/1550nm on multimode or singlmode fiber to provide all-in-one testing of the increasing number of Ethernet networks that now include both twisted-pair copper and fiber optic links.
The NT version of the ValidatorPRO includes a comprehensive set of features for testing a networks active network capabilities: measure Power over Ethernet (PoE) to ensure correct power is available on the correct pins, use port discovery to ensure the correct speed and duplex capability available; connect at Gigabit Ethernet and run Ping tests to verify connectivity to IP hosts; discover network devices using Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) or Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), discovery and display essential information regarding functionality and configuration of 802.11 b/g/n wireless networks.
The ValidatorPRO-NT comes with the main ValidatorPRO-NT unit, smart remote, 8 wire-mapping remotes, two Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries, two universal AC adapter/charger units, USB cable, 8 alligator clip cord sets, two sacrificial cables for RJ45 mod plug, one coupler F-jack to F-jack, USB drive including Plan Um cabling installation and planning software, user guide, firmware, and quick start guide, Deluxe carry case, 100 "speed certified" cable labels and one vehicle charger.
