The Fluke Networks DTX-AXKIT Alien Crosstalk Kit is used with the DTX-1800 network test meter to test and certify alien crosstalk performance on fiber networks. Copper and fiber testers are used by network technicians to troubleshoot, maintain, and optimize performance of copper and fiber optic cabling, hardware connections, and network settings in enterprise networks.
A copper cable tester is a device for troubleshooting, inspecting, and certifying copper network cabling. Devices range from one-button tools for checking connectivity to complex tools for certifying network installations. Three types of testing include verification, to test whether a connection or cable is functioning correctly; qualification, to test a network's ability to support specific speeds and functionality; and certification, to verify whether a network installation meets industry standards. Cabling contractors, installers, and network technicians use copper cable testers to set up and maintain networks within a building or on a campus in corporate, academic, manufacturing, and other enterprise network environments.
Fluke Networks, a division of Fluke Corporation, manufactures tools and software for network deployment, performance management, and troubleshooting. The company, founded in 1992, is headquartered in Everett, WA.
