The Trend Network SignalTEK 10G CT (R157000) is a handheld Ethernet troubleshooter and bandwidth tester (No Fibre or Network Testing) that will measure the maximum bandwidth available of the network, identify bottlenecks and discover opportunities to increase bandwidth without replacing expensive data cabling. The SignalTEK 10G is a feature-rich tool for data cable installers, system integrators, IT enterprises and AV installers. The SignalTEK can be used as a wiremapper, PoE tester, and for troubleshooting and maintenance of active and passive copper networks.

Why do users need a 10G Ethernet Tester?
Lan networks are at risk of expensive downtime and lost productivity due to the ever-increasing demand of bandwidth hungry services such as video streaming, video conferencing, CCTV cameras, and Wi-Fi access points.
The SignalTek 10 Gigabit Ethernet tester will measure the maximum bandwidth available of the network, identify bottlenecks and discover opportunities to increase bandwidth without replacing expensive data cabling. By simulating actual network traffic users can test, troubleshoot and document network and data cable performance up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet standards.
In addition, the SignalTEK 10G CT can conduct cable tracing and wire mapping, or discover cable length and distance to fault to support troubleshooting. Then prove performance to copper IEEE standards and produce professional reports quickly and easily.
Increase the network speed from 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s
There are 111 billion metres of Cat5e/Cat6 cabling installed globally that is limited to 1Gb/s bandwidth speeds due to the current switches in use. Upgrading to Multi-Gigabit switches could increase speed but it is unclear what bandwidth the existing cable will support.
A technician can use the Trend SignalTEK 10G to verify what the data cabling will support (up to 10Gb/s) before spending money on new Multi-Gigabit switches delivering 2.5/ 5 /10Gb/s speeds. Following the upgrades, use the SignalTEK 10G again to prove performance to the client with the “proof of performance” PDF reports.
What is the maximum error-free bandwidth the cabling / infrastructure can support?
The max throughput test takes the guesswork out of existing cabling infrastructure. With one test users can easily see what hardware or applications would work on an existing link saving time and reducing the cost of replacing expensive data cabling.
Adoption of Power over Ethernet (PoE)
What is PoE? PoE (Power over Ethernet) is a technology to provide both data connection and electric power to the PoE enabled devices over a single Ethernet cable. Since PoE technology comes with lower cost, less downtime, easy installation, and maintenance, the Power over Ethernet market demands has been increasing sharply over the years. The PoE applications have penetrated everywhere including, monitors, digital signage, phones, security cameras, lighting, and access control.
In the past, technicians had to understand all the various standards, device power outputs, and cable lengths to be sure a device would operate successfully.
The R157000 Trend SignalTEK 10G CT provides features which eliminate guesswork when installing, maintaining, and troubleshooting where PoE is used up to 90W, as maximum power can be measured accurately, and installations can be verified to IEEE standards. A clear pass/fail is provided to IEEE 802.3af/at/bt standards.
Test Management Software
SignalTEK 10G has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity to connect seamlessly to the free Trend AnyWARE Cloud test management system, where reports can be generated quickly and easily with accurate data. The Trend AnyWARE Cloud offers pre-configuration to eliminate errors on-site, label printer connectivity to save time and “proof of performance” PDF reports for the clients.
The Trend AnyWARE Cloud management system allows real time collaboration between Project Managers and Field Technicians. There is no need for Field Technicians to setup the R157000 SignalTEK 10G CT, Project Managers pre-configure the jobs and tests in the AnyWARE Cloud, eliminating potential mistakes and compressing the time taken to prepare reports for customers.
TeamViewer Live Support
Project Managers can connect to a R157000 SignalTEK 10G CT on the jobsite using AnyWARE Cloud to troubleshoot failed links therefore minimizing troubleshooting time, increasing collaboration and reducing call-backs.
Access can be granted to IDEAL Networks Technical Support to allow further troubleshooting if required.
Meets network needs today and tomorrow
The R157000 SignalTEK 10G CT will help to increase network bandwidth without replacing expensive cable infrastructure, troubleshoot PoE and Ethernet issues and prove the maximum bandwidth up to 10 Gigabits per second.
Optional upgrades available
The Trend SignalTEK 10G model R15700 Ethernet troubleshooter is a future-proof investment as you are able add additional testing for Fibre and Network Testing if needed.
