Thousands of dollars are spent installing and upgrading network equipment, but the cabling often gets little, if any attention. This is ironic because if the cabling does not work, the network does not work.

Cable Certification is the process by which a network connection is put through a series of tests in accordance with Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards. Certification proves that a cabling system adheres to rigorous standards for performance and installation workmanship.

Canaan Technology certifies copper (Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, etc.) and fiber connections installed by anyone. Although there are many reasons to certify a network, three of the most common are:

  • Certifying is less expensive than repairing;
  • Certifying ensures wires behind walls, under floors, and in the ceiling are performing 100%;
  • Certifying provides a clean and documented hand off between a wiring contractor and a Network Administrator.

Canaan Technology uses Cable Certification products from Fluke Networks. We own our equipment, we do not rent it. Our technicians are trained on the proper use and how to analyze the results. Unlike companies that only offer certification, you can engage our services right on the spot to make any necessary repairs, and then have the certification run again.

At the conclusion of a Cable Certification you are provided both an electronic and hard copy of all test results, as well as an analysis based on the results.
