FAQ

It is a productivity and quality improvement mobile app solution for cable installers using Versiv testers and Brother PT-E550W label printers. This FREE 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.

Brother LabelLink was the name previously used for the U.S. version of the iLink&Label app. The app is now called iLink&Label both in the U.S. and in other countries around the world.

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. The Brother 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.

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.

If you are a U.S. resident, look for the Brother iLink&Label app in the App Store or Google Play. If you live outside of the U.S., find the app in your country of origin’s App Store. Access LinkWare Live at LinkWareLive.com.

Both the Brother iLink&Label app and LinkWare Live are free.

iLink&Label is available in both Apple® iOS and Android versions in the U.S. only. Outside the U.S., iLink&Label is only available in an iOS version. Visit your country’s App Store to download the mobile app.
