FAQ:What is LabelLink?
LabelLink is a productivity and quality improvement for cable installers using Versiv testers and Brother PT-E550W printers. Specifically, it is an integrated cloud-based solution for managing the test and labeling processes, results and assets. Use of the 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.
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 are searched and inserted individually or in groups into labels designed for cables, patch panels and faceplates.
