Panduit RapidID™ Network Mapping System
Reduce cable documentation time and cost by up to 50% when building a new telecom room, locating installed cabling, or replacing a network switch with the RapidID™ Network Mapping System – developed by Panduit.
Cable documentation can be tedious, time consuming, and error-prone. RapidID™ allows engineers to place, trace, and replace cables with ease. It is designed to reduce the time and cost spent on patch cord documentation by half. This reduction in place and trace time also means that there is less network down time and fewer errors.
Data centre outages happen, and when they do, they cost money. The top causes of data centre downtime are networking/connectivity and human error. This just shows that it is important to complete the process right the first time.
RapidID™ uses patch cords pre-labelled with unique barcodes. The Bluetooth-enabled handheld scanner automates the tasks of labelling, tracing, and troubleshooting in three easy steps.
1. INSTALL Panduit cables with unique barcode labels.
2. DOWNLOAD the mobile app from iOS or Android app stores to a tablet device.
3. SCAN barcodes using the Bluetooth-enabled handheld scanner.
Reduce the time and cost of cable documentation by up to 50%, according to a Panduit internal study, compared to traditional manual approaches.
Automate the labour-intensive and error-prone cable documentation process that can lead to an outage.
The reduction in place and trace time frees up engineers to work on other, more important, tasks.
The RapidID™ solution includes:
• Pre-labelled copper and fibre patch cords for easy installation and identification
• Feature-rich mobile app
• Bluetooth-enabled handheld barcode scanner
