IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud Grows Stronger

For remote work with the IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud framework, project managers are also supported since they can log in to pre-configure all project details. This tends to minimize on-site mistakes, limit call-backs and social interaction while holding down needless costs.

FREMONT, CA: “Since its launch in July 2019, IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud has proven a big success, evidenced by the sheer global scale of tests uploaded so far,” says Tim Widdershoven, Marketing Director, IDEAL Networks. “With a totally different way to manage test data, it has also helped technicians and installers to work more flexibly and safely despite the challenges of Covid-19.”

The stable and efficient cloud-based tool can be downloaded, viewed, and modified via PC or tablet on all popular web browsers, a perfect solution due to Covid-19 constraints for more people working from home. As it is not required to log in to a particular PC with installed test management software, users can conveniently upload testing directly from their LanTEK IV cable certifier without going to an office to upload or back up data the software is installed locally on a PC. Similarly, the IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud can conveniently manage, edit, and exchange reports from anywhere.

“Keeping people safe remains a top priority at the moment,” says Widdershoven. “The AnyWARE Cloud helps businesses provide an extra layer of safety and security for their teams, limiting interpersonal contact and reducing travel, while also getting the job done more easily and efficiently.”

For remote work with the IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud framework, project managers are also supported since they can log in to pre-configure all project details. This tends to minimize on-site mistakes, limit call-backs and social interaction while holding down needless costs. Jobs will also be done more efficiently by eliminating the need for manual data entry on-site, reducing the time spent on site. This is also assisted by LanTEK IV, with the ability to perform and save all tests up to Cat6A in just 7 seconds, plus extra measures like TCL and resistance unbalance.

“Aside from helping businesses work differently in recent months, our recent research has shown that the IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud also has a big impact on productivity,” adds Widdershoven, explaining that 59 percent of users said that it had a high or very high impact on their productivity, thanks to its innovative functions which decrease the time needed to create projects and test IDs and enable extensive pre-configuration that saves test time in the field. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed also said that this helps eliminate mistakes from manual data entry and reduces the need to revisit job sites.

“We are proud to see tests reach the one million milestone and can only imagine how much time we have saved our LanTEK users, and their customers, with each one of these tests,” states Widdershoven. “So, we are excited that the IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud test management system is now also available with our new SignalTEK 10G Ethernet tester.”

LanTEK IV also includes the Team Viewer Live Support feature for productive and stable communication and troubleshooting, enabling peers and the IDEAL Networks’ Technical Support team to connect directly to the certifier.

“In tune with the changing ways of working in the cable and network testing industry, we hope to bring the benefits of IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud test management system to other testers in our range in the future,” said Widdershoven.

SignalTEK 10G, which was introduced in January 2021, is a feature-rich handheld tester designed to measure the actual usable bandwidth on networks, detect bottlenecks and discover solutions to improve bandwidth without the need to upgrade costly data cabling. Through simulating real network traffic, SignalTEK 10G allows users to test, troubleshoot, and record up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet requirements for network and data cable performance.

With enhanced communication, pre-configuration solutions, Team Viewer Live Support, and professional, detailed monitoring for clients, SignalTEK 10G customers benefit from the IDEAL AnyWARE Cloud in the same manner as those using LanTEK IV.
