Networking Tools: Punch Down Tool & Loop Back Plug

In addition to our cable testing, we have a punch down tool and loopback plug.  These tools are used to setup cabling for a fixed placement setting such as wall.

We’ll demonstrate how these is works in an installation setting by diagramming what the cabling would look in exploded view and what the wall block would be receiving.

You’ll learn how the connection on both ends requires consistency for compliance with the A & B Standards.

A loopback plug is an easy, simple tool used for diagnosing port and NIC card issues on the network.

Similar to the RJ45 but smaller, they typically come with software you use to test and confirm that outgoing and incoming ports are transmitting or the NIC card is functioning correctly.
