Afternoon All ~
With our budget year coming up, we finally have the dough to buy some network testing equipment to verify some of our Cat5/Cat5e installations.
Before doing a ton of research, I figure I’d check to see what is being used. Our uses will be:
- Testing Copper Length (total run of the wire)
- Line certification (Speeds/Termination)
- Presence of PoE on the line
- RJ-11 phone testing/toning a bonus (most come with this)
The other question to piggy back on this is a cheap unit to light up ST 62.5 Fiber. Cheapest one I’ve found is about $200 bucks. Curious if that’s the norm.
Our overall budget is $1,000.
