Fluke Networks introduces LinkWare™ Live Capabilities

Fluke Networks has introduced additional LinkWare Live capabilities that help contractors, cable installers and project managers track and manage their testers, the company said.

LinkWare Live, the industry´s fastest-growing cloud-based cable certification project management service, provides project managers with the real-time asset and project management visibility they need to more efficiently complete projects on time and on budget, resulting in more satisfied customers and more revenue.

The LinkWare Live platform, announced by Fluke Networks late in 2014, is a cloud-based service that works with Fluke Networks Versiv testers, including DSX-5000 CableAnalyzerâ„¢, OptiFiberâ„¢ Pro and CertiFiberâ„¢ Pro certification testers. To date, more than one million test results have been uploaded to the LinkWare Live platform by Fluke Networks customers. LinkWare Live allows users to upload, manage and analyze complex certification test results from anywhere.

The service´s new device management capability makes it easy for project managers to keep track of their testers and to confirm the status of device software and calibration from a single cloud-based screen. As a result, project managers, cable installers and contractors can improve on-time project completion and efficiency.

The new LinkWare Live easy-to-use device tracking and management capability is based on Google Wi-Fi location services. In addition to tracking device locations, LinkWare Live helps contractors plan to have testers updated and calibrated as required, making sure everything is ready to go for each project. The device tracking and management capability will be available only in the United States initially, with additional countries to be released in the coming weeks and months.

To ensure results are accepted by customers and manufacturers, testers must be in calibration and running the latest test limits. LinkWare Live alerts can prevent costly delays and retesting by reminding contractors when testers need to be brought up-to-date.
