Alan Bullen in Inside Networks Magazine

by | Nov 13, 2017 | News

Alan Bullen, Lynx Networks’ Managing Director, features in this month’s edition of ‘Insides Networks’ magazine, discussing the importance of documentation and warranties in structured cabling systems.

Alan was asked “what documentation should end users request to confirm that a structured cabling installation has been carried out, and will perform to, an agreed standard? How important should warranties be in an end user’s purchasing criteria and do they offer genuine value and peace of mind, or are they simply a marketing gimmick?”

“There’s no doubt that the primary purpose of a warranty is to help market the product, but a good warranty is far from a gimmick”
