May 23, 2018 — Fluke Networks recently released the DSX-8000 CableAnalyzer, which it says is the “world’s first” field tester certified and endorsed to meet the requirements for the Cat 8 field testing standard.

The product has been confirmed by Intertek to meet the ANSI/TIA-1152-A Level 2G requirements for measurement accuracy. With the DSX-8000, Fluke says designers and installers have the tools required to deploy Cat 8 in support of 25 and 40 GB Ethernet networks.

Fluke also says the product makes the DSX Series the first permanent link and channel adapters with a full 2GHz range, allowing field certification of TIA Cat 5 – 8, and is the first tester to be endorsed by manufacturers of Cat 8 solutions.
