FAQ’s

How do you test a faulty network point?

We use the latest testing equipment from Fluke to diagnose the fault on a network point. The tester is able to determine a fault on the cable and tell us where the fault is. It also tests the cross talk and electromagnetic interference. With this technology we are able to find faults quickly and have your business connected again as soon as possible.

Can a network cable be repaired?

If a Cat5 or Cat6 network cable is damaged or broken, the best practice is to replace the cable. If it is not possible to replace the cable immediately, we can repair the cable by cutting off the damaged section and re-terminating. This is usually a temporary fix until the entire cable can be replaced.

Can a fibre optic cable be repaired?

In short, damage to fibre optic cable cannot be repaired. However, it can be replaced to alleviate the damaged section. Fibre optic cable is made from a glass core and is therefore fragile and prone to damage when not handled correctly. If a cable is broken or damaged, it needs to be cut and re-joined via fusion splicing. This can be expensive. For this reason, fibre optic cabling should always be labelled correctly and installed in a protective sleeve or conduit to prevent accidental damage.
