Ideal Networks, a manufacturer of data cable, network, and CCTV test equipment, announced that the company will now be known as "Trend Networks," starting on March 31, 2021.

In re-branding to Trend Networks -- with its new tagline “Depend on Us” -- the company says it aims "to better reflect its vision, mission, goals, and position as a partner providing customers with innovation alongside dependable results, equipment, and support."

The name change also consolidates the company’s identity, following its acquisition from Ideal Industries, Inc. more than two years ago by CBPE Capital, alongside the incumbent management team.

For the name Trend Networks, the firm looks to its rich history in the field of test and measurement. Trend Communications was a telecoms test equipment manufacturer founded in 1965. Over almost four decades, the company launched numerous innovations, from telegraph testers, to telex machines, data transmission analyzers and ISDN testers. Trend Communications was acquired by Ideal Industries in 2004 and later became part of Ideal Networks.

“Trend Communications was a leading business with a strong reputation and a dedication to delivering industry-firsts. Under the name Trend Networks, we share this same goal,” explains Paul Walsh, CEO of Ideal Networks.

“However, it’s important for our customers and partners to know that our dedicated team remains unchanged, and that our products, such as LanTEK, are unaffected by the name change – you will still have access to our full range of industry-leading solutions,” Walsh adds.

In the near future, Ideal Networks, under its new name Trend Networks, will launch developments which enable its cloud-based platform to support more of its range of cable and network testers. The Ideal AnyWARE Cloud, which will now be known as Trend AnyWARE, provides enhanced capabilities for pre-configuration, collaboration, and reporting.

Such innovations will join recent product developments by the company, including its LanTEK IV cable certifier and recently launched SignalTEK 10G Ethernet tester.
