What aspects of the cabling are you trying to test? Cat5 testing is much more indepth than what is needed for a standard POTS line.

I have checked out FLUKE and they appear to have something for what you are looking for. Its called their CableIQ Qualifier. You can check it out by going to: http://www.flukenetworks.com/fnet/en...egorycode=CPTT

This device is not cheap. You are looking at roughly $1300 - $1500 and up.

You might also want to check out testers from Test-Um or Byte Brothers.

Wow, $600 for the Byte Brothers unit that claims to certify to cat5e versus cat6. The website looks very non-tech, maybe even a bit snake-oil. But I have to admit that I've never had a customer ask whether I used a Fluke to verify far-end crosstalk etc.

I got a cheap one for $60 and it works great. What kind of tests are you looking for? That is what makes a difference. Connection test or further?
