NBN Unify - Do you comply?

The new maintenance contract for the NBN network starts September 2020 and is called Unify.  Field Technicians engaged with this contract will be required to find and fix faults on the fibre, HFC and copper sections of the network.  This must be carried out within the time frames set by the NBN, with no defects reported, after the job has been completed.

To achieve finding faults quickly, the test equipment must be of high quality, easy to use and in some cases, NBN approved

TMG Test Equipment is proud to be the only authorised supplier of Viavi test equipment to be used on the NBN Network.

Did you know?
The #1 reason for fibre connection failure…

Did you know that fibre hygiene is the number one cause of fibre connection failure?

Inspect Before You Connect Routine

Unless you inspect your fibre ports, you will never know if your one-click cleaner has really done its job.  Fibre inspection is not just a best practice, it WILL save you money and time (re-rolls) by ensuring you’re not damaging your high-quality test equipment, patch leads, BJL drop cables etc!
