Product

GIGATEST LAN Tester is an innovative compact network test equipment in the market that constructs several pioneering features that make on–site cabling and analysis for network construction easy and efficient. It is a well designed LAN network testers assist in the installation and control of networks

For the network cabling of a new building or office, it is often done by third party contractor. The technical personnel may not care about the real throughput and most of contractor only do the simple test by network cable tester to make sure that cable are well arranged and connected. However, problems always happen when the MIS start to deploy the network equipment inside the office. They may find that the cables are either unable to reach the Wirespeed transmission or lots of error packets are received during data transmission.

GIGATEST is an ideal LAN tester for testing and troubleshooting potential problems of data transmission and bandwidth in the field. GIGATEST works by pair with roles of Lord and Servant. Without extra standby personnel at the other test site, two GIGATEST negotiate with each other automatically, start bi–directional symmetric/asymmetric Wirespeed transmission, synchronize the test result and store result at Lord GIGATEST.

For installation of asymmetric transmission network such as ADSL that downstream speed is much faster than upstream speed, it is difficult to test the network by general loopback method that data transmission speeds between two sides must be the same. Unique Asymmetric Loop Test of GIGATEST LAN Tester is able to do customized speeds asymmetric transmission test that can verify the transmission quality of ADSL for ISP or Telecom Company.

With this affordable price and excellent functions for network probe and test on–site, GIGATEST LAN Tester is comprehensive solution for data transmission test in cable wiring phase or troubleshooting phase in the field.
