A Category 6 cable tester shall be used to test each cable to Category 6 standards, such as distance, attenuation; NEXT, cross talk, opens, shorts, pair polarity, and connector pin-out.


Test results will be saved on the tester and then downloaded to the campus network.  Any cables not passing all tests shall be investigated, the cause(s) resolved, and the cable re-tested until all tests are passed for warranty submission.  Final test results must be provided to the UIT Communication Wiring group.


Test data will be submitted to Commscope for the 25-Year Warranty program.
