Everett, WA, Sept. 23, 2015 – Fluke Networks announced today that its LinkWare Live Certification Management Service and Versiv Certification System were recognized among the best in the industry by the judges of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2015 Innovators Awards program. The judging panel consisted of cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators and managers with vast professional experience.

Fluke Networks was recognized as a Silver honoree for the two products.

Fluke Networks’ LinkWare Live Certification Management Service received a Cabling Innovators Award for its ability to resolve test-results-management hassles that, according to survey data, challenge 83% of cabling installers. LinkWare Live is a cloud-based service that manages the certification process, results, and reporting. The service provides a connection between testers in the field and the project manager, allowing the manager to collect test results, control settings, and manage projects remotely. Chris Tracy, a project manager with Skyline Properties and a LinkWare Live user, commented that one of its biggest benefits is the ability to upload test results FROM the field so that he can keep his testers IN the field and generating revenue.

Fluke Networks’ Versiv Certification System is a Cabling Innovators Award recipient, recognized for not just cutting down copper and fiber test time, but also, and significantly, for addressing head-on the real-world complexities that cabling contractors face every day—multiple simultaneous jobs, multiple teams on different sites, and testers changing hands frequently. The Versiv system incorporates an intuitive smartphone-like interface called Taptive, built-in project management software, and features like SmartLoop that allows OTDR tests on two fibers without having to move the tester. Dave Lawes, an RCDD with System Tech Inc., says Versiv allows his technicians to spend more of their time getting projects done and less of it setting up test parameters, configuring label sets, and troubleshooting. Maurice Hayes, operations manager for Foundation Cabling Corporation adds that his company’s use of Versiv has resulted in a huge decline in test errors.

The awards were presented on the floor of the BICSI Fall 2015 conference and exhibition (Sep. 21-23) in Las Vegas.

“On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovator Awards, I would like to congratulate Fluke Networks on their Silver–level honoree status,” said Cabling Installation & Maintenance Group Publisher Alan Bergstein. “This competitive, unbiased program celebrates the most innovative projects in the structured cabling industry. We are pleased to celebrate Fluke Networks‘ Silver status and recognize their contribution to the structured cabling industry.”
