AnyWARE™ App to Streamline Cable and Network Testing

We have launched a new mobile app, IDEAL AnyWARE that will allow users to send their test reports to colleagues and clients anywhere.

The app connects to your IDEAL cable or network tester using Wi-Fi and transfers test reports to your mobile device. Once data is transferred, users can view the PDF reports and send them using their preferred file sharing method including email or file sharing app.

Cable installers and IT technicians can share test reports with project managers, resulting in greater collaboration and visibility, more on-time job completions, reduced costs, and exceeded customer expectations.

The IDEAL AnyWARE app is not a cloud service and IDEAL cannot access or view the test reports. To ensure total security, the data remains in the user’s control at all time.

The hassle of connecting to local Wi-Fi is eliminated to provide a superior user experience because the IDEAL testers serve as Wi-Fi hotspots. Additionally the PDF reports are generated automatically saving time as no PC software is required.

Andreas Bregler, Business Unit Manager for IDEAL Networks, explains: "IDEAL AnyWARE completely changes the face of cable testing. This solution allows technicians to transmit test reports from the field without having to drive back to an office to handover physical media or connect to a PC which many technicians don't carry with them in the field. Even if they do, most do not have mobile hotspots, so they can't send the data unless they go to a place with Internet access. Once test results are on the mobile device, they can view, email, or upload them for sharing with all stakeholders in the project."

The first tester to be compatible with the IDEAL AnyWARE app will be the new SignalTEK® NT, copper and fibre network transmission tester.

Customers who have previously purchased SignalTEK® II & SignalTEK® II FO models can upgrade their tester to be compatible with the free IDEAL AnYWARE app, by purchasing the approved USB Wi-Fi adapter (Edimax EW-7811Un) and downloading the latest software.
