WARRINGTON, UK - IDEAL Networks, manufacturer of data cable and network testers, has expanded into Australia, opening new premises in Melbourne to support its distributors, as well as data cable installers and network technicians.
iOLM greatly simplifies Tier 2 OTDR certification and allows technicians with relatively little experience to certify and if necessary, analyze and troubleshoot fibre cabling regardless of the complexity of the link. Further, by testing each link with multiple configurations the OTDR will provide the most accurate reports ensuring that only good links pass and only bad links fail.
The NaviTEK NT Plus and Pro network testers from Ideal Networks are now faster and more user friendly, the company says, thanks to a number of time-saving updates that help technicians carry out network troubleshooting and maintenance on both copper and fibre cable even more efficiently.
Compact and handheld, NaviTEK NT network testers are designed to help technicians pinpoint and solve issues and offer fast detection of link and IP information, as well as the ability to detect services like ISDN, POTS and Power over Ethernet.
