No Cable Goes Untested!
Why should all installed cables be tested? Quite simply because cable testing provides assurance to everyone involved: the customer, the manufacturer, and the installer.
When a customer purchases an installation through a manufacturer-certified installer, they get assurances that the product will perform as advertised and warrantied for an extended period. Receiving time-stamped test reports that state “Pass” gives them the warranty documentation they need.
As installers, we want to ensure that we provide our customers with an installation free of defects in both the product and the installation.
Manufacturers use cable testing results as quality assurance for both their product and the Certified Installer. For extended warranty installations, they require test reports for each copper cable or strand of fiber installed. The partnership between manufacturer and installer is crucial to successful installations and a positive customer experience.
In summary, testing is one of the most important steps in the installation of a structured cabling system. Testing is an assurance to all parties involved that the purchased products were installed correctly and are performing as advertised. At MTS Services, our policy is to test 100% of the cables installed, regardless of warranty requirements. You can rest assured your cabling will work properly!
