landingpage_logos_CleerlineEnsuring a Successful Fiber Optic Network

Choosing the correct fiber optic tools can be confusing. Cleerline Technology Group, manufacturers of Cleerline SSF™ End-to-End fiber solutions, is ready to help. In a new article, Cleerline provides guidance on key fiber optic tools for network success.

In all instances, make sure to keep cleaning supplies on hand and always clean connectors!

Basic Requirements: Verify Terminations with a Visual Fault Locator

Visual Fault Locators (VFLs) are essential for successful fiber termination. VFLs use visible light to illuminate breaks or issues in cables. Cleerline includes a VFL in every fiber termination kit, and they are a key part of Cleerline’s termination process. However, VFLs do not provide information on insertion loss – for that, more specific tools are required.

Leveling Up Your Tool Kit: VFL + Testing Kit


Unlike VFLs, fiber optic testing kits are designed to provide hard data on insertion loss. Cleerline Optical Light Source and Power Meter kits use non-visible wavelengths of light to measure loss in decibels (dB). Data from testing kits can be used to troubleshoot or (depending on the test kit model), certify the network.

For installers doing more fiber installations or needing to provide certification, testing equipment is essential.

Complete Solution: VFL + Testing Kit + Inspection

Neither VFLs nor testing kits allow visual review of contamination on connectors. Fiber optic inspection microscopes allow installers to view any dust or scratches on connector ferrules. Installers utilizing high volumes of fiber and connectors will benefit from fiber inspection tools and a testing kit, in addition to their VFL, to solve problems before they occur. Especially if certifying installations, inspecting connectors prior to testing will help prevent re-tests due to damaged connectors, saving time.

platinum-tools-logo-Jan-05-2021-07-17-24-79-PM-Mar-24-2021-07-53-03-78-AMPlatinum Tools NetXpert XG2 10G Network Tester

Platinum Tools is proud to announce the launch of its new NetXpert XG2, providing 10G speed certification over copper and fiber, and complete network testing over copper, fiber, and Wi-Fi systems. Now shipping, the NetXpert XG2 has an MSRP of $7,135 for copper and $11,545 for fiber.

“The NetXpert XG2 sets a new standard in versatility and value for cable and network testing,” said Sean Rothermel, Platinum Tools product manager. “With Cat6A rapidly gaining dominance, a tester capable of certifying networks to 10G speeds has become more of a necessity. With the NetXpert XG2, we have a single device that performs 10G speed certification, as well as all the network tests you need on copper, fiber, and Wi-Fi systems, even PoE testing up to the PoE type 4 standard. This eliminates the need to buy or carry multiple testers for various jobs.”

In addition, a highly desired and rare key feature is the XG2’s future upgradeability, with new firmware able to be loaded by the end-user via USB or Wi-Fi. “This capability makes the XG2 even more valuable as the investment in this product does not end when future technologies would render most other units obsolete,” Rothermel added. “Upgrading new firmware will allow the XG2 to be used for years while keeping up with current technological necessities.”

Features and specifications include:

  • Speed certification to 10G over copper and fiber
  • Cable qualification to IEEE standards
  • Active network testing over copper, fiber and wi-fi
  • PoE testing up to 90W (PoE type 4)
  • Complete reporting in multiple formats
  • Full color seven-inch touchscreen

rti_new-1024x319-Jan-05-2021-07-16-45-45-PM-Mar-24-2021-07-57-12-87-AMRTI Video Over IP (VIP) Platform

The new RTI Video over IP (VIP) platform allows you to distribute 4K UHD video over a 1GB network switch with ease. This exceptionally flexible system can be installed in minutes, is scalable to a virtually unlimited number of endpoints, and can be controlled natively within the RTI control environment. For the user, everything in the system is conveniently displayed on an RTI touchpanel, remote, or mobile device with video preview, making it easy to align any source with any display.

At the heart of the RTI Video over IP platform is the VIP-UHD-CTRL Control Module, which combines simplified RTI Integration Designer APEX programming and configuration platform integration with IR, RS-232, or TCP/IP control, and a wizard-based interface for fast and automated system configuration. Advanced signal management provides independent routing of IR, RS-232, USB/KVM, audio, and video signals, while two RJ45 LAN connections bridge the main and VIP networks to increase performance and eliminate the need for a VLAN. Multiple displays can easily be combined into video walls, up to 16x16, using the video wall function.

With a 60Hz refresh rate and support for 4K resolution, the platform's VIP-UHD-TX transmitter and VIP-UHD-RX receiver provide exceptional video quality, using visually lossless compression technology to deliver signals up to 328 feet/100 meters. HDCP 2.2 compliance with advanced EDID management eliminates copy-protected black screens when connecting HDMI sources, while built-in scaling lets each screen in a network display its full resolution instead of being limited by the lower resolution of legacy displays. The transmitter and receiver feature analog audio embedding and breakout, and support all known HDMI audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD®, Dolby Digital Plus®, and DTS-HD Master Audio® transmission.

To minimize cable clutter, the VIP-UHD-CTRL, VIP-UHD-TX, and VIP-UHD-RX can be powered by power over Ethernet (PoE), while up to four transmitters or receivers can be mounted using the 2RU RM-4VIP2 rack-mount adaptor shelf, which includes all necessary mounting hardware.

NetworkHD, their flagship AV over IP solutions introduces the 110 Series, supporting both H.264 and H.265 video encoding/decoding. With H.265, video transmissions look better than ever and use up to 6x less bandwidth. AV streams are fully secure over the network using AES 128-bit encryption methods, ensuring any sensitive data cannot be maliciously accessed.

Of course, the NetworkHD 110’s would not be complete without retaining powerful video wall and Multiview. The 110’s does one better by eliminating the need for a dedicated video wall processing decoder, as the standard NHD-110-RX natively has this ability.

Controlling the whole system couldn’t be easier! A revolution in touchscreen control, the completely free, NetworkHD Touch+ application, available for download through both the Google Play and Apple App Store can easily take your system to the next level.

With no training required and zero learning curve for users, a self-contained configuration and setup, operating in Unicast mode is now easier than ever. The result is an unrivalled user experience and effortless AV control using a device and gestures users already know, making it ideal for applications as varied as hospitality, retail, exhibition, residential and more.

WyreStorm are also adding a series of devices to the rest of their Pro AV line. With new additions to their line of Extenders and Matrix solutions.

The EX-100-H2-EARC extender can extend 18Gbps A/V signals up to 100 meters, utilizing AVX technology to send 4K HDR and Dolby Vision content. Compatible with eARC, it can transmit audio signals such as Dolby TrueHD/Atmos and DTS-HD MA 7.1 signals from a smart TV back to an eARC enabled AVR or soundbar.

The MX-0808-H2A-MK2 matrix is a welcome refresh to the powerful line of H2A pure HDMI switchers. The MK2 is familiar on the surface but has a host of improvements and added features. To start, the HDMI outputs now feature 4K > 1080p downscalers promoting easier integration of mixed resolution displays into a single system. The HDMI outputs also support Audio Return Channel from smart TVs to bring audio from apps like Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, and more to an external audio system.
