Lightspeed Communications was recently contacted to test an intermittent communications fault with an alarm system at a large industrial site in Pinjarra. Prestige Alarms monitors and maintains the security system for Murray Engineering at their facility.
Prior to Lightspeed’s technician attending site an array of troubleshooting had been performed and had been inconclusive, so to rule out any fibre optic connection issues, Lightspeed’s technician attended site and performed end to end testing of the fibre link.
There was no fault found on the fibre optic connection, so our technician worked through potential causes on site to assist and educate on fibre optic connections. With the fibre optic connection ruled out as causing the fault effort could be focused on the active equipment at each end of the link to try and resolve the drop outs.
