Fluke Networks and Cisco Team to Help Small Business Customers Plan the Right Wi-Fi Network

Fluke Networks today announced that it has teamed with Cisco, the worldwide leader in networking, to offer customers AirMagnet Planner for Cisco Small Business. The solution will help Cisco small business resellers meet the challenges associated with deploying and planning an 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless network, as well as help organizations better address emerging performance challenges associated with the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) phenomenon.

As the No. 1 Wi-Fi planning solution in the market today, AirMagnet Planner offers predictive modeling to determine the ideal quantity, placement and configuration of Cisco Access Points (APs) for optimal security, performance and compliance. AirMagnet Planner for Cisco Small Business can take into account the wireless properties of more than 10 Cisco Small Business access points and wireless routers, including the newly released WAP121 and WAP321, to accurately design the Cisco Small Business network for maximized coverage and performance.

“Our customers face many of the same issues as enterprise deployments when rolling out a new, or migrating an existing, wireless network. This includes the significant increase in mobile device usage at work and the use of bandwidth-intensive applications,” said Scott Young, president of Houston-based PennComp LLC, a Cisco Small Business Partner. “Fluke Networks’ AirMagnet Planner for Cisco Small Business enables our customers to use a professional, enterprise-class solution specifically tailored to the Cisco Small Business environment. This new solution for the small business market is a welcome addition as the success of a wireless network is dependent upon a solid wireless assessment and planning tool.”

“Wireless is a critical business application not only for the enterprise, but also for SMBs. Ensuring these networks perform at the highest levels possible requires accurate planning and deployment. Fluke Networks AirMagnet Planner is the de facto solution for wireless network planning and we’re excited to join forces with another market leader to offer our solution to SMB customers,” said Chia-Chee Kuan, vice president of the Fluke Networks WLAN business unit.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
