Viavi Solutions, formerly JDSU, designs and manufactures products for optical communications networks, as well as communications test and measurement equipment.

Fluke DSX 5000 Vs Viavi Cert10 & Cert40 Fiber Testers

Viavi copper and Tier 1 fiber certification solutions lead the industry by providing identical local and remote units that give users full control of their tests. In fact, Viavi’s Tier 1 fiber certification solution was the first tool on the market to provide this control. Now users can save results from either end of the test, eliminating the need for additional technicians or a single technician walking back-and-forth between the two units.

Fluke DTX and Reasons to Buy a Viavi Cert10 or Cert40 Fiber Testers

Customers realize that they will have to do something before next year, so they start to look around (There are only two major options, Viavi and Fluke).

Customers made the switch and bought when the DSX-5000 module was offered. Unfortunately, this module is not Cat-8 ready and these customers are going to have to purchase the DSX-8000 module to be Cat-8 ready. Customers are now looking at other options.  Viavi is Cat-8 ready.

Fluke offers no phone support without a yearly purchase of the Gold Plan. The DTX will not be supported at all after next June and customers will be forced to buy something new. Customers who have already reinvested in Fluke now have to buy something again to stay current. 

Viavi products ship with a standard 3 year warranty, there is free TAC telephone support for the life of the unit (regardless if they buy a maintenance plan or not).
