Networking Tools: Cable Tester

A cable tester is a vital tool for making sure cables work properly and each component is correctly matched up/aligned with its partner component – think leads aligned correctly with the wires they’ve been assigned to.

The cable tester is a dual device tool the cable tester itself used with the cabling unit and a remote testing for facilitating the testing process and providing output results.

We’ll demonstrate its use with an RJ45 cable, then as an example, we’ll diagram the pin to cable connectivity and demonstrate what functions the cable tester will perform and the results reveal.
