NaviTEK NT Boosts Troubleshooting Efficiency and Overcomes Software Limitations


Author : Molokini

The new series of NaviTEK NT hand held testers from IDEAL Networks is helping technicians to work more effectively, with a comprehensive suite of test and troubleshooting functionality only found on dedicated hand-held testers.

Today, network technicians have a broad selection of software troubleshooting tools at their disposal and while useful in certain situations and environments, some management software can have challenging limitations. However, the NaviTEK NT provides one option which is compact, flexible and functional for a range of needs.  It can be easily connected to a network using copper and fibre interfaces; detects services such as ISDN, POTS and PoE; performs wire mapping including length measurement; displays distance to fault and is not susceptible to virus and malware attack.

Since its release, many technicians and IT professionals have benefitted greatly from the NaviTEK NT’s compact size of just 175mm x 80 mm x 40mm, which fits perfectly into the type of small, restrictive areas where important cabling is often located. Previously, laptops and other types of bulky computer systems would have been used, either taking up valuable working space in already cramped connection points or creating the need for extra cables which could contribute to an untidy and potentially dangerous workplace.

“This tester has been developed to respond to the real challenges that technicians and installers face on a daily basis when conducting network testing. To make the task at hand simpler and more efficient, NaviTEK NT provides them with not only a convenient and efficient alternative to network troubleshooting using a laptop, but also a faster way of detecting link and IP information, services like ISDN (Integrated Services for Digital Network) and Power over Ethernet.” explains Tim Widdershoven, IDEAL Networks Global Marketing Manager.

The new NaviTEK NT series is carefully designed to help networking professionals quickly pinpoint and solve issues for both copper and fibre optic cabling. The device’s built-in screen displays useful information including test summary information and at-a-glance snapshot of the network.

Other features include an Autotest function for quick and easy initial testing, Netscan, which displays all IP and MAC addresses on the user’s network, and the Network Probe feature which gives a visual illustration of the user’s network as a helpful visual aid.

Once tests are complete, the results can be downloaded from NaviTEK NT onto a USB device or to an Android or Apple mobile device via the free IDEAL AnyWARE app. Users can also view and share PDF reports with colleagues and clients, without ever having to involve a laptop or computer.

The NaviTEK NT  is the latest series of innovative network testers and aims to provide IT technicians with equipment that not only compliments a laptop in terms of relevant features, but offers a far more lightweight, convenient and cost efficient  way of troubleshooting networks.

IDEAL Networks provides data cable and network testers that simplify and improve the productivity of those installing and maintaining network cabling and devices. Visit www.idealnetworks.net to find out more.
