How to achieve better cable test management
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.
