Troubleshooting & Repair

Nearly half of all network failures may be caused by inadequate cable installation and labeling. We regularly receive calls asking us to evaluate networks that run slowly, run inconsistently, drop connections or simply don’t work, and often find that incomplete, improper or inferior cable installation is to blame.


Axiom Solutions offers experienced network troubleshooting of all types of networks, using advanced testing equipment to locate problems quickly and accurately. Our technicians can detect and repair all types of problems which can slow or stop your network connectivity.

Issues we test for include:
  • Open, shorted or damaged cable.
  • Installed cable, cable segments, or patch cable has improper characteristics.
  • Damaged or worn cable or connector.
  • Poor punch-down.
  • Factory splice in cable.
  • Poor connector termination points.
  • Excessive cable length.
  • Incorrect or poor quality adapter cable.
  • Incorrect cable.
  • Installed cable or patch cable not correctly rated.
  • Defective, poor quality cable or too many connectors.
  • Poor quality installation at the connection points.
  • Too much insulation stripped from the wires at termination.
  • A pair of wires untwisted too much at termination.
  • Split-pairs.
  • Poor quality connectors or connectors not rated to desired category.
  • Delay skew.
  • Incorrect cable management resulting in pinching, kinking or overloading.

Proper labeling is crucial to a high quality, efficient structured network environment.

Do you have one or more of these problems?
  • No labeling
  • Labeling is falling off
  • Labeling is unreadable, especially when handwritten
  • Labeling is incorrect

Labeling problems can be a major contributing factor in network performance problems. In addition, a poorly labeled network wastes valuable IT personnel resources and make it nearly impossible to implement upgrades. Axiom has state-of-the-art equipment specifically designed to identify every cable in your network. Once all cables are identified, we test and label your network according to the ANSI/TIA/EIA-606-A Label Standard.


Axiom Solutions can help, no matter who originally installed your network. If your network isn’t performing as intended, contact us. We’ll give you a thorough assessment of your network and help you reach your goals.
