Fluke Networks began in 1992 as an exploratory business unit within Fluke Corporation, itself a 50-year old leader in the electronic test and measurement market. In eight short years, Fluke Networks had grown and developed many differences from Fluke Corporation. Different customers, different sales channels and sales processes as well as different products and applications prompted Fluke Networks to be spun off as a separate company in 2000. Today Fluke Networks and Fluke Corporation are separate and distinct companies. Both are part of the Danaher family of companies (DHR).

In today's competitive cable test market, there are new test tools emerging at a rapid rate to perform various tasks at various price points. While all cable test tools are useful for specific applications, not all meet TIA/ISO standards and certification warranty requirements. It's important to be aware of the distinction between the cable test tool categories, so you can choose the tester that truly performs the tasks you need.
1. Certification testers – guarantees cabling system compliance to TIA/ISO standards
The most rigorous of all cable testing. Used primarily by commercial datacom contractors and network owners, certification tools are the only tools that provide "Pass" or "Fail" information, in accordance with TIA or ISO standards. The DTX CableAnalyzer Series combines powerful speed and unprecedented accuracy no other certification tester can match. This revolutionary platform dramatically reduces total time to certify to save you time you can see on your bottom line – as much as 33% of certification costs per year.
2. Qualification testers – determines if an existing cabling link can support certain network speeds and technologies
A new category of testers designed to meet the emerging needs of network technicians who need to upgrade network to higher speeds as well as troubleshoot connectivity problems. Qualification testers determine if an existing cabling link can or can not support certain network speeds and technologies The CableIQ Qualification Tester, an easy-to-use bandwidth qualification tester and cable troubleshooting tool, specifically for network technicians. It has all the power techs need to see whether a cable is qualified to support 10/100, VoIP or Gigabit Ethernet speeds and quickly solve network connectivity problems in one intuitive, handheld tool.
3. Verification Testers – verifies that cable is connected correctly
Verification test tools are used by the electrical contractor, home networking professional, datacom specialist or IT/network manager to perform basic continuity functions (for example, wiremap, toning). Verification tools sometimes include additional features such as a Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) for determining length to the end of a cable or to a break or short circuit. The MicroScanner Pro is the essential verification and troubleshooting tool used to prevent and solve cable and wire installation problems.
