Fluke Networks’ Industry-Standard DTX CableAnalyzer Sets New Industry Sales Benchmark
November 30, 2011
EVERETT, Wash. – November 30, 2011 – Fluke Networks announced today that it has exceeded sales of 50,000 units of the DTX CableAnalyzer™ Series, highlighting the ongoing need for reliable testing and the continued worldwide growth of the network and cabling certification industry.
When Fluke Networks launched the DTX CableAnalyzer Series in 2004, it redefined the market by providing testers with faster certification results – 75 percent faster – establishing it as the de facto industry standard. Subsequent innovations, such as Category 6A support in 2006 and an integral Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) in 2007, further solidified its position as the leading testing and certification solution across access networks and data center environments.
“Fluke Networks’ tools have certified more than one billion copper links and 250 million fiber links,” said Jason Wilbur, vice president of datacom cabling and installation tools at Fluke Networks. “When you combine our long-standing record of trust and reliability with the speed and functionality our products deliver, it puts us in a unique position to continue to help contractors take advantage of growth opportunities.”
Along with leveraging its strength in the copper market, Wilbur said the company sees opportunities to drive innovation in the fiber and wireless markets. For example, with data center consolidation and virtualization, there will continue to be a wave of deployment and certification momentum throughout the industry. This momentum will also apply to data communication installers as companies shift from storage area network (SAN) technologies to Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). “While the SAN industry is tremendous, given the momentum of FCoE systems we expect to see continued market acceleration,” Wilbur said.
