1. A method comprising:
receiving, by a computing device and from a laser speed gauge, a first reading of a cable assembly component on which a cable component is being wound or unwound during a cable manufacturing process;
converting, by the computing device, the first reading of the cable assembly component to a frequency analysis of the cable assembly component; and
identifying, based on the frequency analysis of the cable assembly component, a structural defect in a cable caused by winding or unwinding of the cable component on the cable assembly component, wherein identifying the structural defect in the cable caused by the cable assembly component comprises comparing the frequency analysis of the cable assembly component with a frequency analysis of the cable.
