Networking tools and their purpose

Computer networks are used to connect one computer to another to facilitate the transfer of data. The Internet, of course, is the largest network in the world. There are many different types of networks. The two basic types are wireless networks and wired networks. Wireless networks use Wi-Fi routers to wirelessly connect computers and other devices to the Internet.

Even though most homes and organizations today use wireless networks and Wi-Fi routers, there is still a widespread need for wired networks. Wired networks are known to be much more powerful and faster than wireless networks and are also cheaper than wireless networks. Another benefit of having a wired network is that you don't have to worry about interference from other users on the same wireless channel.

However, setting up and maintaining a wired network requires the use of many components such as bulk Cat5 and Cat6 cables, Ethernet cables, telephone cables, USB and FireWire as well as patch panels. Additionally, to maintain and troubleshoot a wired network, other networking tools and accessories are also needed.

At, we are proud to host all of these network accessories, tools and components. We make it easy for you to purchase because they are all available with a click.

Crimping Tools

A crimping tool is one of the most crucial tools for connecting to the network. To attach a connector to the cable, you will need a crimping or splicing tool.

Known as a crimping tool, this tool is used to attach RJ-45, RJ-11, and other connectors to the end of a cable. Some crimping tools have a built-in wire cutter near the handle. This wire cutter can be used to cut telephone cable or Cat5 cable.

When using a crimp tool, the wires that need to be crimped are first inserted into the connector. Once this is done, the socket with the wires is placed in the appropriate slot of the crimping tool and the handles of the tool are squeezed firmly.

This way you can make sure that whatever plastic connector you use pierces the cables inside and holds them all in place. This prevents the threads from loosening and coming out. If the wires are crimped securely in place, data can be transmitted easily from each wire. We offer several varieties of crimping tools such as the hex crimping tool.

Network Cable Tester

One of the problems with wired networks is that when they stop working, troubleshooting can be a bit more difficult than with wireless networks.

This is where a network cable tester can help. A network cable tester is a useful device that allows you to check cable continuity to understand if the signal is strong enough to pass through the network. This eliminates cable connectivity issues when troubleshooting.

It is important to remember that you should never connect a live wire circuit to a network cable tester. It should only be used after disconnecting the cable from the router, modem and a computer.

Generally, a network cable tester consists of two parts: the tester and the remote. Most testers work with two or three connectors. Typically they will have an RJ-45 Ethernet connector, RJ-11 telephone cable connectors, and a BNC for the coaxial cable.

The remote control has connectors for Ethernet and telephone cable. Using a network cable tester is simple.

All you have to do is plug the cable into the correct port on the tester and plug the remote into the other end. Once you run the network cable tester, you will be able to determine if the network problem lies in the connectivity. Otherwise, you will have ruled it out and can continue troubleshooting.

Coaxial Compression Tool

The coaxial cable is the cable that includes the metal exterior of the cable first. A central conductive core provides insulation from the metal.

High frequency signals are transmitted via this coaxial line. A coaxial compression tool is a useful device that uses connectors to properly compress coaxial cable. The side of the cable will tell you what type of cable it is.

You will need to use a connector that fits the cable properly. By using the male and female F-type and N-type connectors, you can connect the coaxial cable.

Once the connector is connected, it is simple to use the compression tool and squeeze the coaxial cable shutting off the level and sealing tightly.

Punch Tool

Punch is also known as Krone Tool. It is a small tool that is most often used by technicians for network troubleshooting. The main purpose of a punch down tool is to insert cables into various devices such as interlocking blocks, patch panels, surface mount boxes and more using insulation displacement connectors .

The impact type of the drill bit is the most popular and commonly used.

The impact drill tool consists of a slot for inserting removable blades, an internal spring-loaded impact mechanism, and a handle for holding the tool. In addition to inserting the wire, an awl can also be used to cut off excess wire. Some punch tools come with a fixed blade and may also not have an impact mechanism. Make sure you acquire the right type of drilling tool that meets your needs. If you need it for a large number of connections, an impact mechanism can make your life easier and prevent muscle fatigue.
