a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, has
partnered with Fluke Networks®, the worldwide leader in cable
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.
SYSTIMAX calculator (available to CommScope partners on mycommscope.com) 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. The integration of
the SYSTIMAX link loss calculator with Fluke Network’s Versiv provides
automated performance for warranty certification for both singlemode and
multimode fiber systems.
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.”

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.
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.
