IDEAL Lowers Cost of Certifying & Documenting LAN Cabling

Special Promotional Savings of up to 65% on SignalTEK Gigabit Ethernet Certifiers

SAN DIEGO, CA, APRIL 17, 2012 – IDEAL Industries Networks, the networking technology division of IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. (www.idealindustries.com), has dramatically reduced the cost-of-ownership for network cable testers by offering special promotional pricing on its professionally acclaimed SignalTEK Gigabit Ethernet Certifiers. The promotional pricing – available as up-front, no hassle discounts – makes an outstanding value even better.

"For any contractor or IT manager who is on the fence about buying a Gigabit certifier this is a huge motivation to buy now," said Dan Payerle, Business Unit Manager for IDEAL Industries Networks. "We are giving customers every incentive to pick up a SIgnalTEK, from an amazing new price to including with the tester our industry-leading warranties, software, and customer service."

SignalTEK™ is designed to verify that installed cabling can support bandwidth-heavy voice, video and data applications. Reliable and feature-rich, this handheld tester will stream live 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet packets to simulate real-world traffic on the network and then measure errors on the link in accordance with the IEEE 802.3ab Gigabit Ethernet standard. The tester also supports Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT) for VoIP, data and video over-IP applications.
