SYCAMORE, IL, October 8, 2009 – Like many people who visit Las Vegas, a spin of a wheel changed the fortunes of two BICSI show attendees last week. James Rogge, an installation contractor for Toledo, Ohio's Henning USU, and Michael Burchette, Infosys Manager of Oklahoma City, OK, brought home state-of-art testing equipment when they became winners of IDEAL's High Rollers slot machine challenge.

Testing their luck, Rogge and Burchette both took a free pull of the lever on an authentic slot machine located in IDEAL's BICSI booth. After the machine paid out they bet their winnings on Tuesday night's big drawing for the testers. Lady luck shined on them.

Rogge was the Grand Prize winner of a 1000 MHz LanTEK II cable certifier valued at $8,000. This remarkable new tool performs nine second Cat 5e and 14 second Cat 6 tests with full performance data plus 10 Gigabit Alien Crosstalk testing that's more than 4x faster than other systems. The patented universal adapter systems lets you certify most cabling with off-the-shelf patch cords saving time and money by eliminating the need for proprietary permanent link adapters.

Burchette received an IDEAL SignalTEK multimedia qualification tester valued at $995.00. SIGNALTEK™ is a reliable, feature-rich, handheld copper cable tester with a user-friendly graphical interface. It offers true Gigabit performance testing by transmitting 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet packets and measuring errors on the link in accordance with the IEEE 802.3ab Gigabit Ethernet standard.

According to Burchette, he greatly appreciates the tester and has already put it in the field on one of his service vans. “It will be an asset to compliment the inventory of test equipment available to our technicians.”
