In this discussion, we'll discuss the different types of testing challenges IT departments face in the midst of modern network infrastructure with more and more IoT connected devices that require PoE, and assurance of category cabling including CAT6A and 10GigE. We'll also do some hands-on live product demonstration to show how testing in these network environments can be done quickly and easily, with a cost effective test solution that spans both the wired and wireless network.
IT departments often find a need to ensure the cabling infrastructure meets a certain test standard. This is needed to ensure support for a given application, or simply to support moves/adds/changes. Historically, this requires the purchase of two or even three different types of testers, that span wired, wireless, and certification capabilities, which becomes cost prohibitive.
Introducing the Network Service Assistant (NSA), with Certi-Lite, a multifunction connectivity test solution that represents a new category in field test with Qualification+ grade testing function. The NSA is offered at a fraction of the cost for what you would typically need to spend in multiple testers to get this much test function. And, because the NSA is modular, adding more test function as needs change, and AEM continues to add capabilities, is as easy as hot swapping a test adapter.
