Ideal Networks, manufacturer of data cable, network, and CCTV test equipment, will be known as Trend Networks from March 31, 2021.

In re-branding to Trend Networks, with a new tagline “Depend on Us”, the company said 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 more than two years ago by CBPE Capital alongside the incumbent management team.

“Trend Communications was a leading business with a strong reputation and a dedication to delivering industry-firsts," said Paul Walsh, CEO for Ideal Networks. "Under the name Trend Networks, we share this same goal. 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.” 

In the near future, Trend Networks 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. 

These innovations will join recent product developments such as the unique LanTEK IV cable certifier and recently launched SignalTEK 10G Ethernet Tester.
