SIGNALTEK™ provides a technically innovative method to test and document performance of voice, data, video, and VoIP applications for cabling installers and network technicians. It tests the link's ability to support application by transmitting Ethernet packets on the wire and measuring the link performance according to IEEE 802.3ab Gigabit Ethernet standard. By monitoring transmitted and received data packets, it can report the BERT (Bit Error Rate Test) for the link. It uses the latest generation of Gigabit Ethernet technology to provide the best performance to this new class of testers.
