LabelLink Mobile App Combines Cloud Technology and Advanced Mobile Printing Capabilities to Elevate Contractor Workflows

In the office, the project manager uses CAD to plan the network infrastructure, then uploads cable ID and component identifiers to LinkWare Live.

The project manager can use LinkWare Live to define detailed test settings for the job.

Technicians download and install the LabelLink app to their mobile device.


On the jobsite, the contractor or technician uses their mobile device to download cable identifiers from the LinkWare Live cloud directly to the PT-E550W labeler.


FAQ
  • What are Brother LabelLink and iLink&Label?

    Both are a productivity and quality improvement mobile app solution for cable installers using Versiv testers and Brother PT-E550W label printers. The same mobile app goes by either name depending on the country. This mobile app is an integrated cloud-based solution for managing the test and labeling processes, results and assets.  Use of this Brother mobile app with LinkWare™ Live bridges the gap between the office where the project originates, and the jobsite where the project data are needed in the testers and labeling tools.

  • What are Fluke Networks and Brother announcing?

    Fluke Networks and Brother are announcing an exciting new technology for cable installers to enhance jobsite productivity and quality using Versiv™ testers and the Brother PT-E550W industrial labeler. Specifically, it is an integrated cloud-based solution for managing the test and labeling processes, results, and assets. Brother’s LabelLink and iLink&Label mobile apps paired with LinkWare Live bridges the gap between the office where the project originates and the jobsite where the project data is needed with regard to testers and labeling tools.

  • How does it work?

    A project manager creates a project in LinkWare Live while in the office. Technicians can access LinkWare Live while on the jobsite and download project data directly into Fluke Networks Versiv testers. Test results are then uploaded into LinkWare Live and recorded into the project database. The Brother mobile app will access LinkWare Live, including project data uploaded from the tester, and download wirelessly through a tablet or smartphone to the Brother labeling tool model PT-E550W, which acts as a database. From the PT-E550W, project data is searched and inserted individually or in groups into labels designed for cables, patch panels, and faceplates.

About the Collaboration

LabelLink is the result of a collaboration between Fluke Networks and Brother Mobile Solutions to marry industry-leading testing and label printing technology to create the new standard in datacom testing and labeling.

“LinkWare Live bridges the gap between the project manager’s office where the data for testing cables and printing labels originates and the jobsite where Fluke testers and Brother labeling tools are used by the installation crew. For network designers, integrators and contractors, the LabelLink app automates multiple workflow processes and will help eliminate a major pain point in jobsite productivity. More importantly, it ensures labeling accuracy across the entire project.”

– Eric Conley, VP and General Manager, Fluke Networks

“This solution was created by two great brands combining their technologies to make network wire, cable and component testing, and labeling faster and easier than ever before. It’s a real game-changer, especially for contractors engaged in standards-based labeling of large and complex datacom installations. Our Brother Mobile team is thrilled and excited to partner with Fluke Networks to introduce the LabelLink application to the world.” Visit Dave Crist's blog.
