ITM's Fibre & Equipment Engineer reviews their newly purchased Fluke Networks Versiv
ITM, a UK-based leading independent provider of specialist ICT infrastructure solutions and services, applies best of breed technology, in-house expertise and innovation to deliver standards compliant solutions and services to clients throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the World. Stuart Ayres, ITM Fibre & Equipment Engineer, reviewed the results of their investment in twenty Versiv Cabling Certification Systems.
After using the Versiv System for a few months it clearly offers several advantages when compared to the previous generation of test equipment. Not only is the Versiv System faster, the modular design and online connectivity dramatically reduces our engineers travel time as they no longer need to call into the office to have test results downloaded or firmware updated.
During the few months that we have been using the new equipment I have identified the following advantages that translate into productivity gains for both ITM and our Customers:
- Greatly reduced test cycle times for both copper and fibre.
- Easy and fast movement of test data from site to office enables better project progress reporting, quicker sign-off and invoicing.
- Ability to remotely configure and control the test units.
- Simplified logistics, we now only have to maintain one fleet of modular multi-purpose test equipment.
