TREND Networks receives gold
03 September 2021
THE SignalTEK 10G bandwidth tester from TREND Networks, leading manufacturer of cable and network test solutions, has been recognised as a Gold Honouree at the 2021 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards.
The panel of judges from the cabling community recognised TREND Networks for SignalTEK 10G in the Test Equipment category, based on criteria such as innovation, value to the user, sustainability, meeting a need, collaboration, and impact.
“With SignalTEK 10G, we launched a product based on a real challenge facing the industry - the ever-increasing demand on LAN networks from bandwidth hungry services which is putting extra pressure on networks and can lead to expensive downtime and lost productivity,” says Tim Widdershoven, marketing director for TREND Networks.
“We are absolutely delighted that our dependable SignalTEK 10G solution has received this accolade, as we have already seen how much it can really help installers to check whether upgrading to Multi-Gigabit switches to improve bandwidth will work before expensive investments are made,” he continues.
By simulating actual network traffic SignalTEK 10G enables users to test, troubleshoot and document network and data cable performance up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet standards. With a max throughput test, the tester verifies what the maximum error-free bandwidth the cabling or infrastructure can support and establishes what hardware or applications would work on an existing link. This saves significant time and cost compared to replacing data cabling.
Once the upgrade is installed, SignalTEK 10G can be used again to test and prove performance to international standards. With the free TREND AnyWARE Cloud test management system, it can generate professional reports for the client and support real time collaboration between Project Managers and Field Technicians to improve accuracy.
“On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate TREND Networks on their Gold level honouree status,” says Cabling Installation & Maintenance Chief Editor Patrick McLaughlin. “This competitive program allows Cabling Installation & Maintenance to celebrate and recognise the most innovative products, projects, technologies, and programmes impacting the industry.”
