What Our Engineers Did…
Our engineers attended the site and found a cable had been installed poorly, resulting in a damaged cable and underground ducting. To solve the problem PSS engineers temporarily repaired the cables. Due to the repair being temporary, our engineers discovered the network link repeatedly falling out.
Due to the temporary repair, our client asked for the installation of a new link between the building, which would require a new underground ducting installation. Our engineers measured, roded and roped the existing and new underground ducting. Which required our engineers to install a total length of 550m of new OM4 fibre cabling to the site, fusion spliced and tested with OTDR.
The final job required our engineer’s to specify Netgear GS728TPV2 switches, SFP modules and patch leads to suit. Our client also asked if we could set up the existing VLANs onto the network, which we completed remotely.
PSS Installations ensures that safety always remains a priority. Our engineers carry checks before a job is started to identify the exact work needed for completion. It is important for us to ensure our clients receive efficient and effective service for the best installation service. We also inform our clients a breakdown of the key jobs which will be carried out as we never cut corners!
