How to achieve bet­ter cable test man­age­ment

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS -

Fluke Net­works has un­veiled LinkWare Live, the first cloud-based ser­vice that lets con­trac­tors, cable in­stall­ers and project man­agers us­ing the Ver­siv fam­ily of cer­ti­fi­ca­tion testers to up­load, man­age, and an­a­lyse cer­ti­fi­ca­tion test re­sults from ca­bling projects – any­time, any­where.

LinkWare Live works with DSX-5000, Op­ti­Fi­bre Pro, and Cer­tiFi­bre Pro cer­ti­fi­ca­tion testers to op­ti­mise project man­age­ment and safe­guard con­trac­tor prof­itabil­ity by pro­vid­ing real-time ac­cess to test­ing re­sults, ex­tend­ing support to tech­ni­cians in the field, and elim­i­nat­ing costly truck rolls sim­ply for tester trans­port back to the of­fice. LinkWare Live is a free ser­vice avail­able to all Ver­siv cus­tomers.

Ac­cord­ing to re­cent Fluke Net­works sur­veys of more than 1000 cable in­stall­ers (who had col­lec­tively in­stalled ap­prox­i­mately one mil­lion links in the pre­vi­ous month), poor test re­sults man­age­ment cre­ates a sig­nif­i­cant drag on pro­duc­tiv­ity and prof­itabil­ity, half the re­spon­dents said it would be ben­e­fi­cial to ac­cess project sta­tus in­for­ma­tion from any lo­ca­tion.

By up­load­ing tests to LinkWare Live reg­u­larly, project man­agers can save trips solely to col­lect re­sults, pre­vent data loss and con­tin­u­ously track project progress. LinkWare Live also au­to­mat­i­cally or­gan­ises test re­sults by job, elim­i­nat­ing the painstak­ing task of man­u­ally com­bin­ing files from mul­ti­ple testers.
