LanTEK IV-S received the award based on criteria such as innovation, value to the user, sustainability, meeting a need, collaboration, and impact. As the fastest cloud-connected copper and fiber cable certifier on the market, the judges considered how LanTEK IV-S provides a unique way to certify cable, enabling 7-second test times. It is TREND Networks’ fastest, most powerful, and most easy-to-use certifier to date, with a dual-core processor and enough memory storage to save 5,000 tests.

“We are thrilled that LanTEK IV-S has once again received this accolade,” says Dan Barrera, Director of Product Innovation for TREND Networks. “Since its launch, we have continued to innovate with LanTEK IV-S, finding even more ways to help installers improve productivity and accuracy.”

“The next phase for LanTEK IV-S is our updated operating software, which will allow all future software updates to be done easily via Wi-Fi, providing a faster, more convenient, way to work, and eliminating the need for a PC,” continues Dan.

TREND Networks is also introducing a new fiber optic Video Inspection Probe for LanTEK IV-S, which provides high-quality images of fiber optic end faces, with the aim of reducing the risk of test failures and network connectivity issues.

“On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate TREND Networks on their Gold-level honoree status,” said Cabling Installation & Maintenance Chief Editor Patrick McLaughlin. “This competitive program allows Cabling Installation & Maintenance to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products, projects, technologies, and programs impacting the industry.”
