To certify Ethernet speed performance of cable runs, the Net Chaserô conducts Bit Error Rate (BER) tests (using Active Remote) by sending data packets down specifi ed cable runs at defi ned data rates to check for errors at the maximum throughput of the link. The Net Chaserô reports on signal quality that can impact high-speed data trans- mission by measuring signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Skew measurements report on the signal time delay between pairs that can impact Gigabit data transmission. Finally, the Net Chaserô unit provides continuity testing that detects opens, shorts, miswires, split pairs, reversals, and high-re- sistance faults while accurately measuring distance to faults and total cable length.
