IDEAL Networks, manufacturer of dependable data cable, network, and CCTV test equipment, will be known as TREND Networks from 31st March 2021.
to TREND Networks, with a new tagline “Depend on Us”, the company aims to
better reflect its vision, mission, goals, and position as a partner providing customers
with innovation alongside dependable results, equipment, and support. The name
change also consolidates the company’s identity following the acquisition from IDEAL
INDUSTRIES, Inc. more than two years ago by CBPE Capital alongside the
incumbent management team.
For the name
TREND Networks, the firm looks to its rich history in the field of test and
measurement. Trend Communications was a
telecoms test equipment manufacturer founded in 1965. Over almost four decades, the company launched
numerous innovations, from telegraph testers, to telex machines, data
transmission analysers and ISDN testers. Trend Communications was acquired by
IDEAL Industries in 2004 and later became part of IDEAL Networks.
Communications was a leading business with a strong reputation and a dedication
to delivering industry-firsts. Under the name TREND Networks, we share this
same goal,” explains Paul Walsh, CEO
for IDEAL Networks.
“However, it’s important for our customers
and partners to know that our dedicated team remains unchanged, and that our
products, such as LanTEK, are unaffected by the name change – you will still
have access to our full range of industry-leading solutions, ” he continues.
In the near future, IDEAL Networks, under its new name, will launch developments which enable its cloud-based platform to support more of its range of leading cable and network testers. The IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud, which will be known as TREND AnyWARE, provides enhanced capabilities for pre-configuration, collaboration, and reporting.
innovations will join recent product developments such as the unique LanTEK IV
cable certifier and recently launched SignalTEK 10G Ethernet Tester.
