Fiber Optic Power Meters and Fault Locators
Fiber optic communication systems require the right tools to commission new links and to troubleshoot existing links. Fluke Networks has a wide range of Fiber Optic testing products to help certify that power losses are within standards and to troubleshoot broken and high loss links on single mode and multimode fiber. Fluke Network fiber optic tools are designed to be rugged and reliable, and to get the job done.
Copper Cable Testers and Tone Generators
Companies expect their twisted pair cabling to work flawlessly, but corners cut during design, installation and testing result in network downtime which translates to wasted resources and lost revenue. This can be avoided by cable installers that are capable of installing copper cabling systems and locating faults quickly. From 100BASE-T to tomorrow’s advanced twisted pair technology, Fluke Networks is the industry’s most trusted partner for cabling testing.
Fiber Inspection and CleaningDust - just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. A 1-micrometer dust particle on a single-mode core can block up to 1% of the light (a 0.05dB loss). The only way to know it’s clean is to inspect it before you connect it. And if it’s dirty, it needs to be cleaned with the right tools or you might just make it worse. Know it’s clean with our cleaning and inspection tools.

ITM, a UK-based leading independent provider of specialist ICT infrastructure solutions and services, applies best of breed technology, in-house expertise and innovation to deliver standards compliant solutions and services to clients throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the World. Stuart Ayres, ITM Fibre & Equipment Engineer, reviewed the results of their investment in twenty Versiv Cabling Certification Systems.
After using the Versiv System for a few months it clearly offers several advantages when compared to the previous generation of test equipment. Not only is the Versiv System faster, the modular design and online connectivity dramatically reduces our engineers travel time as they no longer need to call into the office to have test results downloaded or firmware updated.
During the few months that we have been using the new equipment I have identified the following advantages that translate into productivity gains for both ITM and our Customers:
- Greatly reduced test cycle times for both copper and fibre.
- Easy and fast movement of test data from site to office enables better project progress reporting, quicker sign-off and invoicing.
- Ability to remotely configure and control the test units.
- Simplified logistics, we now only have to maintain one fleet of modular multi-purpose test equipment.
Migrating from the Fluke Networks DTX-1800 CableAnalyzer to the new Versiv DSX-5000 product line was caused less by a challenge and more by an opportunity to adopt a next-generation technology that leveled the playing field against shrinking budgets and project schedules.
Challenge: LanTroVision is a Singapore-based structured cabling and IT network installation company with subsidiaries and alliance partnerships across Asia, Australia, Africa, Europe, and South America. With annual revenue exceeding $106.8 million USD (S$133.54 million), LanTroVision is focused on continual growth by providing evolving product and service lines that meet or exceed customer expectations. The company has established a legacy of providing best-in-class network and cable infrastructure services, but maintaining this legacy grows more-and-more challenging as customer expectations increase despite shrinking budgets and project schedules. The company is constantly asked to do more with less.
Results: Migrating from the Fluke Networks DTX-1800 CableAnalyzer to the new Versiv DSX-5000 product line was caused less by a challenge and more by an opportunity to adopt a next-generation technology that leveled the playing field against shrinking budgets and project schedules. The Versiv DSX-5000 helps LanTroVision complete cable installation jobs to customer specifications in half the time. It allows them to test all kinds of cables used on the job and maintain maximum uptime in customer networks, all with little-to-no technician training. In addition, the DTX and DSX platforms are interoperable, allowing LanTroVision to make the most of their investments and migrate technologies as their budget and schedule allows.
By leveraging Versiv™ DSX-5000, CertiFiber® and LinkWare™ Live, PowerCom has significantly reduced the time and effort needed to test the systems and provide results to their customers.
Challenge: PowerCOM installs and services a wide range of information and communication systems including; voice, data, Wi-Fi, security and monitoring at a variety of both indoor and outdoor locations. With over 80% of employees working in the field on multiple client sites, delivery of test results to the PowerCOM office and/or client is often challenging. Historically, the process to set up test equipment and compile results has been manual and time intensive for both field and administrative staff. Additionally, some customers desired more frequent and periodic delivery of detailed test results, rather than only upon project completion. To address these issues, PowerCOM required a solution that could help their technicians and administrative staff be more efficient, as well as readily and more easily share data with their customers.
Results: By leveraging Versiv™ DSX-5000, CertiFiber® Pro and LinkWare™ Live, PowerCom has significantly reduced the time and effort needed to test the systems and provide results to their customers. Instead of requiring the field technicians to set-up test parameters and commute to the office to deliver/review the test reports, these tasks can be done remotely through the cloud. By leveraging LinkWare Live, PowerCom technicians can complete jobs faster, ensure test accuracy and reduce the potential for rework.
