Certification Testing

If you have any of the following: Cat5e, Cat6 or Cat6A installed in your property, there is only one way to guarantee that the infrastructure can support the speeds and reliability your network needs. That is Certification testing. Using specialist equipment, (followed by appropriate training) we can test every aspect of a cable system. These tests will include, overall cabling, modules, patch panels and patch leads. All tests are performed to Industry Standards. This is hugely important with any system using 10GBASE-T applications. When we provide a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty, all the results are sent off for approval, further validating that an installation is of high quality.

Fault finding and repair

Most general cabling faults will go unnoticed for years and will slowly appear when higher speeds and new equipment are connected. Some of the most common faults we find are poorly terminated cabling or broken modules. With testing, these faults can be quickly identified and repaired. In leased properties, you will often take over old cabling and a common service we provide is to test all data points and repair any faults ready for them to move in.

Data cable Breaks and Repairs

Sometimes due to maintenance and building works or rodent damage, data cables can become damaged and in worst cases have an unknown location. We use specialised equipment that can quickly pinpoint where any broke or damage is and repair quickly to minimise any downtime. We also provide an emergency call-out around the clock for circumstances where there copper cabling is the backbone of the network.
