AEM Network Service Assistant

Key Capabilities
NSA
NSA

A New Class of Hybrid Testing

  • Single-ended ANSI/TIA 1152-A cable certification
  • Autotest feature for testing cabling links
  • PoE Load Testing – includes 802.3 af/at/bt and UPOE
  • Multi-Gig Link Speed Testing for 1/2/5/5/10GBASE-T
  • Network Connectivity Testing
  • Real time results acquisition and sharing via the Cloud

Key Capabilities

Certi-Lite – Single-ended ANSI/TIA 1152-A complaint RF testing.

Certi-Lite provides single-ended ANSI/TIA-1152-A complaint channel testing of CAT3 – CAT6A with a clear Pass/Fail indication. For cable contractors, a regular dual ended certification test is necessary for new installations for cable manufacturer's warranty purpose. For network owners and those that do not have a requirement for dual ended certification, the NSA's Certi-Lite capability is a perfect tool for qualifying existing cabling for its suitability for new applications, particularly smart building where PoE will be heavily used, but at a significantly lower price point.

Certi-Lite use cases:

Reassessing the performance of existing cabling against standards requirements such as CAT6A
Troubleshooting network connectivity and link speed issues
Documenting cable plant performance
Auditing certification testing jobs
Moves, Adds, Changes
Test results can be saved to internal memory for later upload to the included TestDataPro results management software. Test Results can also be uploaded to the free TestDataPro Cloud service for offload from tester via wired or wireless network connection.

Pass/Fail Criteria:

Length, Delay, Delay Skew, Loop Resistance, Insertion Loss, Return Loss, NEXT, PSNEXT, ACRF, PSACRF

Informational:

Network Compliance, Resistance Unbalance P2P, TCL, ACRN, PSACRN, Impedance, RL Locator TDR, NEXT Locator TDR, Shield Locator TDR

PoE Load Testing.

NSA provides the most comprehensive test functionality for verifying PoE deployments. All PoE standards to include 802.3at/af/bt are supported up to 90W, as well as 60W UpOE. The PoE source is tested with actual load connection.  NSA offers the unique ability to test internal and external load test over a sustained time period to monitor issues with the Ethernet/PoE link over time. NSA will also check that the cable installation meets the required power to turn on a PoE devices.

Multi-Gig Link Speed Testing

NSA validates a cabling link for high performance Ethernet standards including 1 / 2.5 / 5 / 10GBASE-T. End-to-end Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) measurement provides a quick and objective assessment of link performance under network load condition. The Autotest feature of the NSA is the easiest way to ensure that a cabling link will the desired network rate.

Wireless access points (APs) are one of today's most broadly deployed IoT devices and 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless APs require 2.5 and 5 GigE backbone speeds to run at maximum performance. Additionally, these devices can be PoE powered and by the nature of the link speed, require all four pair to be terminated. NSA can ensure the cabling infrastructure passes category cabling in accordance with ANSI/TIA XYZ standard, verify link speed in accordance with IEEE 8023.bz specific to 1 / 2.5 / 5 / 10GigE, and verify loaded PoE++ in accordance with IEEE 802.3bt to 90W including DC resistance measurements.

Network Connectivity Testing

Useful for moves/adds/changes/troubleshooting, NSA will connect to a live network either through the built-in 10/100/1000 or when through the AD-NSA adapter that comes with the NSA and connecting to the Multi-gig network interface. Once NSA is connected, the auto-discovery feature displays connected devices on the network. Ping any other device on the local network or the internet to determine connectivity and latency.

Display list of IP & MAC addresses for connected devices. Useful for identify devices, including unknown devices attached to network.

Select any IP address to view that device details, MAC address, and more.

View Local Area Network details such as Gateway, Subnet Mask, DHCP Server.

Use Ping to verify point-to-point connectivity or out to the Internet by selecting pre-defined or custom website URLs and see latency details.

Traceroute is useful in determining if internet connection latency is within the local network or beyond.

Network Autotest includes the network discovery, connected devices, network map, ping and LAN speed.

WiFi Network Connectivity Testing

Wireless connectivity testing may be performed using the optional Edimax WiFi USB adapter (EW-7822ULC ).

NSA's auto-discovery will display all detected SSIDs and their associated RSSI (received power level) and channel. This is useful in determining if the WiFi network to which a customer is trying to connect has sufficient signal to a specific location.

Determine WiFi "dead zones" by checking the RSSI in various locations.

Connect to any SSID using the appropriate credentials for that network

Auto Connect and WiFi handoff with user-definable signal threshold for handoff can help in troubleshooting coverage issues while using the Signal Strength tool.

All Network Test tools used in wired network tests also function in WiFi.

Use Ping to verify point-to-point connectivity or out to the Internet by selecting pre-defined or custom website URLs and see latency details. Traceroute is useful in determining if internet connection latency is within the local network or beyond.

TestDataPro Cloud

TestDataPro Cloud is a free service that allows users to transfer test results from NSA to the cloud while on a job site. Users can connect to the network with NSA through a wired or wireless network connection (such as connection to your cell phone hot spot while on a job site). This allows users to offload test results throughout the project, giving managers visibility into progress being made and facilitates a quick and easy transfer of result off NSA. Once results are in TestDataPro Cloud, users can go into detail for each test on-line or get individually printed test reports.

If more in-depth capability is needed, such as creating a single .pdf report for multiple test results, creating a logical hierarchical view of test results, and more, test result can be transferred to the more full featured TestDataPro. However, most users will find everything the need in TestDataPro Cloud.

AEM’s new Network Service Assistant (NSA), is the first Qualification+ test tool on the market that provides those responsible for general wired and wireless network troubleshooting, as well as assurance that the cabling infrastructure meets industry test standards with features that approach what professional cabling contractor certification tools can measure, yet at a much lower price-point.


With NSA Certi-Lite, network owners no longer have to choose between wire testers for basic cable continuity, a network tester to qualify real-world multi-gig, PoE load, and network connectivity testing, or a cable certifier for those times when a deeper-dive test on cabling is required.
