Fluke Networks FI-500 FiberInspector™ Micro and DSX-8000 CableAnalyzer™ receive Platinum and Silver Awards respectively, recognized as industry leading tools to install, certify and troubleshoot essential cable infrastructure

Everett, WA, Sept. 27, 2017 – BICSI Fall – Fluke Networks announced today that its FI-500 FiberInspector Micro and DSX-8000 CableAnalyzer were recognized by the judges of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2017 Innovators Awards program to be among the industry’s most innovative developments. Fluke Networks FI-500 FiberInspector was presented with a Platinum-Level Innovator Award, CI&M’s highest-level award, and the DSX-8000 was selected to receive a Silver-level award, as judged by a panel of cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators and managers. The awards are intended to acknowledge the clear benefits of these tools over previous methods, approaches and products.

Fluke Networks FI-500 FiberInspector was recognized with the Platinum award by CI&M for its innovation as the first fiber video inspection probe with an integrated flashlight to make it easy for network installers to inspect fibers in today’s crowded fiber patch panels. Fluke Networks PortBright™ feature, coupled with autofocus and large, high-contrast display, make the FI-500 an essential scope for fiber technicians operating in dense, low-light environments.

Fluke Networks DSX-8000 CableAnalyzer received a Silver award as the most advanced tester in the industry, the first field tester independently certified and endorsed to meet all the requirements for the Category 8 field testing standard. The DSX-8000 is the flagship tester in the Versiv™ Cable Certification Family, continuing the Fluke Networks tradition of designing innovative products to help data communications installers more quickly, accurately and profitably achieve system acceptance for copper and fiber jobs.
