Epson America will be demonstrating its all-new smartphone and tablet-based datacom and cable labeling solution at BICSI 2014 in Anaheim, Calif., from September 29-October 1, 2014, in the company's booth #405 during the show's exhibit hours.

The demonstrated platform consists of Epson’s new 'Datacom and Cable Labeling' mobile app printing to the company’s LabelWorks LW-600P, a Bluetooth label printer. Epson says the new labeling app will enable users to quickly create labels for new and existing networking installations from the convenience of their mobile devices. The app comes preloaded with label templates for patch panel, cable wrap, faceplate, and cable flag labels. All app-based label templates will support the TIA-606-B industry labeling standard, providing a convenient way for users to align the labeling of their network hardware to the specification.

Used in conjunction with the app, Epson’s LW-600P printer provides unmatched portability, flexibility and affordability, asserts the company. Utilizing Bluetooth connectivity and AA batteries (AC adapter also included), the LW-600P enables wireless printing of durable adhesive labels in tape widths of 6mm (~1/4”), 9mm (~3/8”), 12mm (~1/2”), 18mm (~3/4”) and 24mm (~1”). The printer can fit easily in a toolbox or a briefcase and comes with an automatic cutter that reduces waste and saves money, adds the company.

“Epson is introducing a significantly easier and intuitive way to create, preview and print labels for patch panels, cables and face plates,” says Anna Jen, director, New Ventures/New Products for Epson America. “Simply launch the Epson datacom and cable mobile app, select the type of label desired such as patch panel or cable wrap, enter the desired text or TIA-606 configuration settings and hit print.”

The Epson Datacom and Cable Labeling app for iOS will be available for download from the Apple App Store by November 2014. An equivalent Android solution will follow the release of the iOS application. For complete LabelWorks LW-600P specifications, pricing, and additional information, visit www.epson.com/lw600p.
