On the Way: Standards for Plug and Jack Testing

Ron Tellas 06.23.2017

Whether a category cable can deliver the bandwidth and capacity you need comes down to installed performance: Does the cable hold true to its promises once it’s installed?

If the cables are damaged during pulling, connectivity isn’t terminated properly, cables are manufactured incorrectly or the environment isn’t conducive to desired network performance, the cable may not perform as expected. For this reason, it’s crucial to make sure cabling and components pass certain parameters after installation is complete.

Cable testing verifies that the installation work was performed to required standards, no damage has occurred and all connectivity is terminated properly to provide the performance you expect. If problems are found, they can be fixed early to prevent issues with unexpected downtime and frustration.
