Bicsi Brother Aem 2021

Brother, AEM pair ICT test, labeling tools for building integration efficiencies

Sept. 13, 2021
Together, Brother and AEM aim to help system designers and contractors ensure accuracy and consistency in the information and communications technology (ICT) network's labeling scheme as designed and built.

Brother Mobile Solutions and AEM have teamed up to deliver cable testing and labeling efficiencies to system designers and contractors, the companies announced.

“The collaboration integrates AEM’s industry-leading testing solutions and Brother’s award-winning labeling technologies to enable streamlined sharing of crucial infrastructure IDs between locations,” the partners said in a statement. “The meteoric growth in data center and data infrastructure projects [in buildings] is driving demand for technologies to help speed and improve the accuracy of the labeling process,” they added.

During the recent BICSI 2021 Fall Conference and Exhibition, the two companies rolled out their joint solution and demonstrated to an enthusiastic audience of cabling infrastructure professionals how the Brother iLink&Label app and PT-E550W industrial labeling tool integrates seamlessly with AEM TestPro CV100 and Network Service Assistant to help:

  • Speed the testing and labeling process.
  • Eliminate duplication of jobsite effort.
  • Reduce human error.
  • Dramatically improve the project labeling step of building systems integration. 

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) strategy is key

“Whether an installation is large or small, quality and accuracy are essential in planning, installation and maintenance,” observed Craig Robinson, director of industrial solutions at Brother.

Robinson added, “That’s why we’re constantly developing new ways to make the testing and labeling experience easy and intuitive. The Brother iLink&Label app integration with AEM test and certification products will allow more professionals across more worksites to take advantage of this seamless experience and know that they have the right data when, and where, they need it.”

“Keeping your job running smoothly is paramount to the success of a project, including meeting deadlines and reducing overhead,” concluded Lisa Schwartz, director of product marketing at AEM. “Together, Brother and AEM help system designers and contractors ensure accuracy and consistency of the network labeling scheme as designed and built—and provide a solid foundation for an effective cable management program going forward.”
