Renting versus buying - Final Stages of NBN Build

As we are coming to the end of the NBN build you may be reluctant to commit to purchasing or committing to a long term lease of your test equipment and tools.

Rental - For Short Term Needs

Renting is perfectly suited for planned or unplanned temporary projects, facilitating peak load capacity requirements or when you need more test equipment than you currently own.  Short term rentals may also be beneficial when temporarily replacing assets out for repair, for use in training, or for other high-priority needs.

The Benefits of Renting Are:

  • No fixed time period – use the equipment for as long as you need
  • Flexible terms are available for short or long-term project needs
  • Return equipment when projects are completed without incurring any additional cost
  • Offers solutions for safeguarding and complying with budget restraints
  • Eliminates the worry of ownership, maintenance and calibration expenses

Locator Selection Guide
GPRs, Pipe & Cable and Magnetic Locators

Selecting the correct locating equipment (and it's configuration) for the job can be a tricky task.

To simplify the Locator selection process, we have developed an easy-to-use online guide to provide clarity based on the type of Underground Cable, Metal, Plastic or Reinforced steel Concrete Pipes, Markers or Steel material you commonly need to locate.

Whether you find buried assets as a part of your day-to-day activities (such as civil works - excavating/digging holes etc), locate underground utilities for clients as a paid consultant, or find pipe/cable breakages to pin point where to dig, WE CAN HELP.

VIAVI OneAdviser5G for 4G/5G RF & Fibre Testing
NEW Product Release

Image: VIAVI OneAdvisor 800

One Solution.
      One Process.
            One Report.

  The VIAVI OneAdvisor-800 is designed to meet the evolving needs of service providers, field technicians and contractors as they scale 5G infrastructure.  OneAdvisor-800 allows cell site technicians to test fibre, RF, and CPRI/Ethernet from a single instrument, replacing multiple independent tools (OTDR, Cable & Antenna Analyers, Fibre Scope) significantly reducing the total cost of ownership.

The instrument's workflow user interface carefully guides technicians through a pre-configured common test process, making sure that technicians complete the job in the same way and to the same specifications.  With OneAdvisor-800,tower hands get built-in guidance, automatic test configuration, pass/fail results, and a single closeout report every time, at every site.

Key Benefits

  • Improved tool efficiency.  Replaces multiple independent tools (i.e. OTDR, Cable & Antenna Analyser, Fibre scope).
  • Broad coverage.  Covers all radios types (LTE and 5G) and topologies (Macro-cell, Small-cell, C-RAN, and/or DAS) 
  • Scalable.  As a team's test responsibility grows, so can the OneAdvisor platform with modular test components
