Fluke Networks Incorporates CommScope Link Loss Calculator into Optical Loss Test Sets

CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, has partnered with Fluke Networks®, the worldwide leader in cable certification, to help ensure optimum fiber optic cabling performance. CommScope’s exclusive SYSTIMAX® link loss calculator will now be incorporated in Fluke Networks’ CertiFiber® Pro Optical Loss Test Set (part of the company’s Versiv™ Cabling Certification System) and the company’s LinkWare™ Live cloud service. This marks a transformational change in the certification of ultra-low-loss singlemode and high bandwidth multimode fiber optic network projects in data centers.

The SYSTIMAX calculator (available to CommScope partners on is a tool that accurately computes total link loss performance for SYSTIMAX low and ultra-low loss systems. The proprietary test requirements set performance targets that greatly exceed the industry standards, providing superior support for high speed data network applications and architectures. フルーク・ネットワークスの Versiv に SYSTIMAX リンク損失計算機を組み込むことで、シングルモードおよびマルチモード・ファイバー・システムのパフォーマンスの保証認証を自動化できます。

“Our research has shown that eliminating errors in the certification process leads to significant savings for cabling contractors,” said Eric Conley, vice president and general manager of Fluke Networks. “By building the calculator into Versiv and LinkWare Live, customers can reduce complexity and ensure that certification is done right the first time.”

The CertiFiber Pro improves efficiency of fiber optic certification, simplifying set-up, eliminating errors and speeding up troubleshooting – and features a three second two-fiber / two-wavelength test. Its modular design also supports optical time-domain reflectometry, fiber end-face inspection and copper certification modules. Fluke Networks’ LinkWare Live cloud service allows project managers to configure and track multiple testers and projects from their office, saving time and further reducing the chance of setup errors. With over eight million test results uploaded to date, LinkWare Live is the leading cloud service for cable certification projects.

Both Fluke Networks and CommScope will expound on their new collaboration at two upcoming events. Team leaders will offer their expertise at the 2018 BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Feb. 4-8, through interactive seminars and workshops.

  • Rodney Casteel, CommScope – “The Fabulous, Fast Moving, Fever Pitch, Forever Accelerating Fiber Frenzy” Feb. 5, 9 a.m. EST
  • Casteel and Jim Davis, Fluke Networks – “Testing High Speed Fiber Links” – Feb. 5, 1:30 p.m. EST
  • Davis – “Field Testing and Troubleshooting of PON LAN Networks” – Feb. 7, 9 a.m. EST
  • Ken Hall, CommScope – “Choosing MPO Connectors” Feb. 7, 10:30 a.m. EST
  • Davis – Exploring Cat 8: Understanding Applications, Installation and Testing” Feb. 7, 3 p.m. EST

BICSI attendees will also be able to register to win a Fluke Networks certifying tool at the CommScope booth (#637) or Fluke Networks’ booth (#309). Fluke will also be answering questions and planning a day-long “takeover” of CommScope’s Twitter starting at 8 a.m. EST on Wednesday, Feb. 7. Follow @commscope to get in on the conversation.

“We are pleased with this partnership that we know will serve our customers well into the future,” said John Schmidt, vice president of engineering at CommScope. “Not only will installers have the most complete, CommScope-approved solutions for certification, they can be sure that their infrastructure will perform to the highest standards required for cloud, hyperscale or enterprise application and architecture needs today and in the future.”
