Agilent Technologies Introduces WireScope Pro Cable Tester

Agilent Technologies introduced its new handheld cable and fiber tester for Cat 3 to Cat 6a/7 cable certification. It is said to be the first to provide Alien Crosstalk (AXT) measurements for testing LAN cabling's suitability for running 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE).

An expandable platform, the WireScope Pro is available at Cat 3 to Cat 6 test capability and can be upgraded to Cat 6a/7 capability at a later stage, making it a safe investment.

According to the press release, WireScope Pro boosts the test throughput by a factor of three, compared with previous models. New Fiber SmartProbes cut test times of optical links by eliminating the need to swap fibers for bidirectional testing and calibration. Furthermore, Agilent's newly developed AXT test solution, based on WireScope Pro, employs a new, fast and cost-efficient methodology, based on real-life crosstalk stimulation. Today's network analyzer-based, one-hour measurements now run in five minutes.

WireScope Pro exceeds TIA (Telecommunications Industry Association) Level IV accuracy specifications, with compliance independently certified by ETL SEMKO (formerly Edison Testing Laboratory).

The Agilent N2640A WireScope Pro handheld cable and fiber tester is available in April 2006 at a list price of $7,700.
