IDEAL Networks has launched a new cloud platform to make test data management easier for installers using LanTEK IV cable certifiers.
IDEAL AnyWARE™ Cloud can be accessed, viewed and updated on common web browsers, via PC or tablet. Registration for the free solution can be completed quickly and easily online, and users can select from a choice of nine languages.
Once logged in to the IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud, installers can easily access data from the LanTEK IV. The platform also includes the WalkMe interactive digital help system, which provides proactive guidance every step of the way.
The test management system allows you to organise tests by building, floor, room, cabinet and panel so that thousands of results can be easily and logically viewed and managed. This makes it easy for the Project Manager to identify specific test results.
It also makes it simpler for technicians to carry out the tests in the field by isolating only relevant test results for display on the LanTEK IV. For instance, the tests relevant to the specific room and floor in the building. This reduces errors as they will not accidentally test cables in another room.
Users can easily create complex naming conventions that can be seamlessly transferred as a .CSV file from IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud to a label printer for fast and accurate labelling, saving time on every job.
Project managers can pre-configure all project information, helping to eliminate costly mistakes from manual data entry on-site. As the new LanTEK IV cable certifier now includes wifi connectivity, field technicians can simply download the project to the LanTEK IV cable certifier and get testing.
With LanTEK IV, all tests up to Cat6A can be conducted and saved in just 7 seconds, including any optional measurements such as TCL and resistance unbalance.
For those that require a locally installed test management solution, an IDEAL AnyWARE desktop version is available. Both the Cloud-based and desktop option represent a progression from the current IDEAL DataCENTER (IDC) test report management system, with more comprehensive reporting, seamless collaboration across devices and time-saving features for cable installers and technicians.
