Five Reasons Upgrading to Versiv™ Will Save You Money

Fluke Five Reasons Upgrading to Versiv Saves You Money

August 20, 2016

The Fluke Networks DTX CableAnalyzer™ has become the world's most popular tool for certifying premises copper and fiber cabling, with billions of links certified. Built with legendary Fluke Networks ruggedness and reliability, you might want to use it forever. But that will be a very costly plan.

Learn five simple reasons why you should upgrade to Fluke Networks’ Versiv cabling certification system which is designed to save you even more money and to get to systems acceptance faster.

  1. Faster Set Up
    Waiting for your expert to set up the tester wastes time. Setting it up wrong can waste a lot more when an entire day's work isn't done to spec. Versiv's ProjX™ management system makes setup foolproof. Enter the testing details for the job once, and your techs are given the choice of only the correct tests for that job — especially valuable when the tester moves from job to job. The LinkWare™ Live cloud service even lets you set up your testers without bringing them back to the office.
  2. Faster Testing
    The DTX set records with its testing speed. But Versiv is even faster: twice as fast for Cat 6A and four times as fast for fiber loss testing. Versiv’s Smart Loop™ feature lets you perform an OTDR test on two fibers at once and even allows bi-directional testing with instant averaged bi-directional results - without moving the tester to the other end. Quad modules mean you don't have to hunt for and switch to the other module when you're doing a mixed multimode / singlemode job. And Versiv automatically grades fiber endfaces in about a second — something the DTX can't even do manually.
  3. Reduced Mistakes
    Call-backs can turn a profitable job into an unprofitable one. That's why Versiv is designed to eliminate mistakes. With Versiv's ProjX management system, your techs can only choose the tests that you define for the specific job. LinkWare Live lets you track testing the status of each job from any mobile device, down to the level of each individual test. It will even indicate when unexpected tests are being performed or worn you in advance that calibration is due.
  4. Faster Reporting
    Since Versiv uses the same LinkWare software as the DTX, there's no learning curve when it comes to reporting. However, instead of hauling testers or memory cards back to the office, just upload the results from Versiv to the LinkWare Live cloud service, which automatically assigns the right tests to the right job — across all your testers. No more hunting for those missing tests.
  5. Future Ready
    Investing in Versiv means you'll also be ready to take on new jobs. Versiv supports future measurements such as TCL and resistance unbalance that your DTX never will. Certify coax and standard or industrial Ethernet patch cords in both directions. Test singlemode fibers that are more than ten times as long. And the modular design means you can add new capabilities without buying a new tester.
