IDEAL Networks honoured by Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2017 Innovators Programme

IDEAL Networks announced today that its Test4Less suite of solutions has been recognised by the judges of the annual Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards programme. The judging panel consisted of cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators, and managers, with vast professional experience.


IDEAL Networks was honoured with a Platinum-level award. Test4Less is a new suite of products, services and payment methods to help companies installing and testing data cabling and networks to reduce capital expenditure, increase productivity and improve cash flow. 


“Following extensive research, Test4Less was specifically developed by IDEAL Networks to help installers and contractors,” explains Tim Widdershoven, Global Marketing Manager from IDEAL Networks. “We’re delighted to be honoured with a Platinum-level award for the work we are doing to help provide cost-effective solutions to the key challenges faced by the industry.”


The smart Test4Less solution helps installers consider whether certifiers are necessary. One customer discovered they could save as much as one million dollars by combining IDEAL Networks LanTEK III certifier kits with SignalTEK testers for a more affordable way to provide clients with proof of performance. SignalTEK also generates and shares PDF reports through the intuitive IDEAL AnyWARE app, allowing back-office teams to receive valuable test data before technicians leave the site.


Test4Less also includes a ‘Pay As You Test’ purchase model for cable certifiers to transform a certifier fleet from a capital investment into an operational expense.  With this approach, it could cost just £2,750 up-front for a new cable certifier. The solution also offers the Sapphire Care Plan to help protect data cable installers from unforeseen costs and reduce downtime.


Alan Bergstein, publisher of Cabling Installation & Maintenance (cablinginstall.com) said "This prestigious program allows Cabling Installation & Maintenance to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and services in the structured cabling industry. Our 2017 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact in the industry."


The Innovators Awards are judged based on the following criteria:


• Innovative
• Value to the User
• Sustainability
• Meeting a Defined Need
• Collaboration
• Impact

The 2017 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards Honorees are featured in the November Issue of Cabling Installation & Maintenance magazine as well as on www.cablinginstall.com .
