How to terminate and test copper cable.

Video showing How to terminate and test copper cable.

This hands-on Tips for Techs video takes you inside the Black Box Training Center to show you how to terminate and test cabling for a copper installation. The video begins with a step-by-step demonstration of terminating a patch cable up to the CAT6 specification, with special focus on how to cut and strip the cabling in a way that ensures good signaling integrity. Next, it covers how to validate and verify a backbone link between a patch panel and workstation. The video tutorial then demonstrates what kind of tester you’ll need if you must certify and document a copper link, then ends with a discussion on what you’ll need to simply verify the Ethernet performance of a cable run.
