Trends in Copper and Fiber Testing Including Category 8 and OM5


It has been an interesting year for cable test standards. We have seen the release of new standards, like Category 8, and new cable designations, such as OM5. We even have a new link model, the Modular Plug Terminated Link (MPTL). Of course, applications have also changed. With NBASE-T, we can get 5 Gigabit connection speeds on our existing cabling infrastructure!

In this one-hour webinar, Jim Davis (Regional Marketing Engineer, Fluke Networks) provides an overview of changes in the world of testing and explains how you can be sure that your cabling infrastructure will meet the new standards. Get ideas on where your cabling specifications may need to be updated and be ready to “talk the talk” with others in the industry!

This webinar was recorded on August 30, 2017.
