SYCAMORE, IL -- Today's networks demand that frontline technicians be equipped with testers that quickly validate, troubleshoot and resolve challenges that cause slow performance and downtime. The IDEAL NaviTEK II LAN Tester perfectly meets those needs, featuring a suite of advanced testing capabilities such as IPv6 and IPv4, PoE detection, VLANs, Trace Route, ID port and link speed, and an large color LCD screen to view pin-by-pin wiremap with distance to faults.
Affordable and offering value at every step of the testing process, the NaviTEK II lets technicians literally see into copper or fiber networks to identify complex connectivity problems. It makes delving deep into LAN physical and network layers more efficient than ever before.
NaviTEK II features a simplified user-interface that empowers even inexperienced technicians to get their networks back up and running fast. Steering through the tester's full capabilities poses no challenge thanks to its 5-way navigation buttons, an on-screen keyboard, and an intuitive set of icons. Another key to its time-saving design is the ability to test both cabling and network performance using the same RJ45 interface, eliminating the need to disconnect the cable from the unit to switch between cable and network tests. This is especially important because errors in cable and fiber connections account for 80-90% of network problems.
NaviTEK II supports VLANs commonly deployed to address scalability, security, and network management. The tester can be used to verify the correct transmission and prioritization of Ethernet traffic with a specific VLAN ID and priority setting, saving the technician the expense of buying a separate VLAN tester. In addition, it will check the availability and capability of PoE and higher power PoE+ sources in real time, including telling the technician the source voltage, current and supported PoE/PoE+ standards.
The NaviTEK II will store a maximum of 250 tests plus allow the technician to organize tests into five unique job folders. This large storage memory and job folder system helps organize results for multiple jobs without having to offload the information onto a hard drive.
