PatchAssist at a glance

PatchAssist is able to identify patchfield allocations in real time. This is essential in order to document network and cable structures comprehensively and failure-free. RFID technology constitutes the core of the system. Each connector is fitted with an RFID tag bearing a unique number which allows to identify each patch cable and its position in a patch field. Each port has its own tag reader which detects plugged connections immediately and signals the unique cable identification number of the identified connector to the system server.
With this information it is possible to retrace any modification in the documentation without delay and without gaps. Also, any unauthorized plugging or unplugging of a connection is detected immediately and an alarm process can be triggered.
