December 11, 2013
Leading IT services company uses Versiv to quickly and accurately achieve system acceptance for hundreds of top-tier customers throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa
EVERETT, Wash. – December 11, 2013 –Fluke Networks today announced that Redstone, a leading IT infrastructure, data center, and smart building solutions company has purchased the Versiv™ family of cable certification testers to help strengthen its structured cabling and intelligent infrastructure offerings. With interchangeable modules for copper and fiber testing, Versiv gives Redstone the ability to more quickly, accurately and profitably achieve system acceptance on cabling and maintenance projects for customers.
“As early adopters of the new Fluke Networks’ Versiv platform, we are leading the market rather than following it,” stated Roger Stevenson, Services Director for Redstone. “We work with some of the world’s top companies, so it’s vital we keep up and adapt to their changing demands. We are proud to announce our adoption of the Versiv tester family and look forward to maintaining our competitive edge in the market.”
Redstone’s pre-termination facility and project delivery teams install and certify more than 250,000 copper and 25,000 fiber links annually, meaning significant time savings for the entire team with the use of Versiv’s ProjX™ management system. ProjXallows work across multiple jobs and media at the same time, simultaneously accelerating planning and setup of projects and switching from job to job with a simple click. The system also allows up-to-the-minute project analysis and oversight to help speed certification and reporting. All of the new features in Versiv combine to make it the fastest tester on the market, so jobs get done right the first time.
Redstone upgraded their entire testing fleet to the new Versiv platform, including the addition of 40 DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer™units, many equipped with CertiFiber® Pro Optical Loss Test Set (OLTS) modules and Fiber Inspection Cameras, and 20 OneTouch™ AT Network Assistant units. The Redstone services team will utilize the OneTouch solution to support more than 45,000 users and carry out more than 70,000 channel installs and 19,000 fault rectifications they service annually.
“The DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer, CertFiber Pro and OptiFiber PRO modules together with the Fiber Inspection Cameras for Versiv will allow us to install and gain certification for all of the major IT infrastructure manufacturers, while the OneTouch AT Network Assistant units will allow our site-based technical teams to support their end-user client base,” said Stevenson. “The Versiv family of testers gives us unprecedented flexibility when deploying and managing our projects. From set up to testing to reporting, the entire process has been streamlined making it more profitable for us as an organization. We’re making a strong investment in our business by acquiring the most efficient and compliant test solution on the market.”
