VeEX offers QR code based NoApp test results transfer

Feb. 9, 2023
The company says NoApp will be available across most of the field test platforms in the near future.

VeEX Inc. says it will offer a new test result transfer feature on its handheld fiber-optic, Ethernet, and CATV test instruments. Called NoApp, the patent-pending technology leverages QR codes to enable robust field test record submission. The company says NoApp will be available across most of the field test platforms in the near future.

The use of QR codes means technicians can use a smartphone or any mobile device equipped with a camera and QR code reader to scan the QR code displayed on the VeEX tester’s screen after the measurement is performed and saved. The NoApp cloud service then processes the QR code information, providing instant access to all measurement parameters on the mobile device. Technicians also can augment reports by entering additional job attributes, comments, and pictures, as well as tag results with GPS coordinates obtained from the mobile device. Users can send the test records via text or email to a supervisor for review; they also can upload and archive the records in VeEX’s VeSion R-Server workflow and asset management system by leveraging the phone’s internet connection or WiFi.

“QR codes coupled with VeEX’s NoApp web-hosted service provide free, fast, and reliable access to valuable test data without having to rely on a wired or wireless connection with the tester,” said Monica Hua, product manager of VeEX’s PON product portfolio. “This is not only a huge time-saver, but it eliminates technicians having to perform constant app updates for everchanging iOS and Android operating systems.”

VeEX plans to highlight NoApp and other elements of its test instrument portfolio at OFC March 7-9, 2023, in San Diego, CA, USA, in Booth 4146.
