Cable Test Capability?

Does the C5 / B5-L hardware have the ability to run basic cable tests? If so, I’d really like to see a cable test feature implemented.

Examples: AirFiber units show live cable data, Netonix switches show live cable data, and several MikroTik routers show cable data (but only when disconnected).

This past month, I’ve had 2 wire failures that could have been quickly diagnosed if cable test capabilities were included in the firmware.

Thank you - Chris


Hi Chris,

We don’t have cable tests built-in to the radios at the moment, but I’d be happy to check for you and submit as a feature request.

If the hardware supports it, it would be great to see it implemented.

I would extend the suggestion to the whole product line. Thank you.
