Fluke delivers world's first cloud-connected cable certification tool

ANAHEIM, USA: At the BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition, Fluke Networks unveiled LinkWare™ Live, the first cloud-based service that enables contractors, cable installers and project managers using the Versiv™ family of certification testers to upload, manage, and analyze certification test results from cabling projects—anytime, anywhere.

LinkWare Live works with DSX-5000™, OptiFiber Pro, and CertiFiber Pro certification testers to optimize 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 1,000 cable installers (who had collectively installed approximately 1 million links in the previous month), poor test results management creates a significant drag on productivity and profitability:

* Eighty-three percent reported having one or more test results management issues in the month prior to the survey.
* The average time contractors spent dealing with test result issues in a single month was 15.2 hours—nearly two full workdays, not including the hours required to get the test results back to the office for analyzing and reporting.
* Half of the respondents said it would be beneficial to access project status information from any location.
