CableIQ, the first
cabling bandwidth
tester for network
As an IT professional, you have
a tough balancing act. You’re an
on-the-spot problem solver. And
you’ve got your eye on future
enhancements, seamlessly
upgrading the network to higher
speeds, while optimizing the
current infrastructure. All this
without adding staff and while
working with smaller budgets.
That’s why Fluke Networks
designed CableIQ – an easy-to-use
cable troubleshooting and
bandwidth qualification tester
specifically for network technicians. It has all the power you
need to see whether your cable is
qualified to support 10/100, VoIP
or Gigabit Ethernet and quickly
solve network connectivity
CableIQ: See network
infrastructure problems quickly
• Isolate cabling problems from network problems. Save time and money
by escalating fewer trouble tickets.
• See existing cabling bandwidth.
Four-second test quickly determines
if your existing cabling can support
voice/10/100, VoIP or Gigabit Ethernet.
• Troubleshoot cabling performance faults.
Determine why the existing cabling plant
cannot support the desired network speed
(e.g. connection fault at 7 feet).
• Free up 10% or more of your switch ports.
Discover what is at the far end of
any cable, whether it is an open cable,
a PC, an analog phone, or switch.
• Detect speed/duplex mismatches in a matter
of seconds. Determine a PC’s duplex settings
and compare settings to the connected switch –
all from one location.
• Isolate faults easier with intelligent
wiremap. Test for wiremap, length, shorts, split
pairs or opens, and graphically see the distance
to specific pin faults, such as “pin 1 break at
37 feet.”
CableIQ gives network techs
new vision into cabling bandwidth
• Locate cables and wires with superior
accuracy. Breakthrough IntelliTone™ digital
signaling technology precisely locates cables in
even the most chaotic wiring closet.

CableIQ is the first cabling tool designed
troubleshoot and qualify cabling bandwidth.
It gives even the most novice tech vision
to see what speeds existing cabling can

at the far end of any cable. That means
network techs can close trouble tickets
faster, reduce on-call time, and save
money by better utilizing their existing
problems in one intuitive,
handheld tool.
