IDEAL Networks keeps connected in Australia

IDEAL Networks is now directly connecting with data cable installers and network technicians throughout Australia, following innovative new product launches.

The independent global manufacturer of data cable and network testers came under new ownership in December 2018 and subsequently introduced several new cable and network testing solutions. For instance, the innovative LanTEK IV cable certifier which sets new standards with a completely unique, future-proof way to certify data cable, and the handy PoE Pro which supports installation, troubleshooting and maintenance of PoE devices and data cabling.

During this period of change, the Australian market has been supported by previous owners IDEAL INDUSTRIES as part of a Transitional Service Agreement, which comes to an end on 20th December 2019.

Effective from 18th December 2019, IPD Group, which now includes TRIO Test and Measurement, will support the IDEAL Networks product range in Australia including sales, technical support and training. With offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, the company has extensive technical knowledge to meet the needs of Data Cable Installers and Network Technicians nationwide. Extron will continue to repair and calibrate the testers.

A new IDEAL Networks website for Australia, launched in June 2019, also provides users with detailed product information, local prices, free software updates and other helpful resources.

Gordon White, Regional Sales Manager for IDEAL Networks will be managing the Australian business. For any further enquiries please contact

Meanwhile, IDEAL INDUSTRIES will continue to sell and support all of its products for electricians via its preferred distribution channels throughout Australia.
