Structured Cable (Premise Wiring) Testing...

Although my job as a consultant is mostly programming, I've done a dozen or so premise wiring projects and UNIFI installs and have a few pending... Anyway, I now feel the need to be able to test and troubleshoot premise wiring. If you were paying for it, I'd own a $23,000 Fluke test kit for copper and fiber. Yet, back to reality. I'm only working with copper at the moment (Cat 6 & Cat 6A) with mostly Gigabit needs, although I'll need to support about 4 drops of 10G ethernet later this year. So, what test equipment do you own and that you fine indispensable? My needs include: mapping the drops, POE verification and testing, verifying that the pairs have continuity, any break in a conductor should be identifiable based on the length of the cable before the short or open...

So, what's in your bag?
