As many Telstra customers will know, Telstra connects telephone lines up to a certain point in a property, which is called the Network Boundary. This is usually either the first telephone socket, or if the resident lives in an apartment building, it is the MDF which is the cupboard that houses all the main telephone interconnections for the building. When a telephone hook-up or connection is required, or an additional telephone socket needs to be installed, Telstra will often advise to contact an ACMA (formerly Austel) Licensed Electrician or ACMA Registered Cabler.
Telstra usually says that the phone line has been ‘tagged’ and is active. This means that the line is ready, up to the MDF or network boundary, and that the ACMA Registered Cabler should be able to locate and connect the new phone line. An ACMA registered electrician or cabler is a tradesperson who has been specifically trained and assessed as competent in installing and testing telephone, internet, Ethernet, structured cabling, Cat 5e, Cat 6, TV, intercom and other communications cabling so that it is safe, reliable, and has maximum performance. Only some Licensed Electricians are ACMA registered, as it is a separate and additional course.Sometimes it can be difficult for customers to know which electricians or cablers are ACMA approved, and it is often puzzling to know where to start looking for one.
Sydney Electrical Appliance Testing has ACMA Registered Cablers available throughout Sydney for all types of telephone, Ethernet, data and communications installations and upgrades. Technicians frequently visit the CBD to do telephone hook-ups, reconnections and troubleshooting.
ACMA electricians or cablers are often asked to troubleshoot crackling phone lines or background noise on the telephone line. Poor phone line quality can be a result of using incorrect cable or connector types, moisture, corrosion, or poor joints and terminations. An ACMA Registered Cabler can quickly narrow down the source of your phone line crackle or hum, and make proper repairs. Customers often need to call on the services of a Registered Cabler to troubleshoot ADSL drop-outs or poor performance.
The registered cabler can check the existing cabling and interconnections, and ensure that the correct types of cable, connectors, and modem are being used.Registered Cablers from Sydney Electrical Appliance Testing are also experienced installers of Cat 5, Cat 5e and Cat 6 Structured Cabling systems. Cat5e and Cat6 are the most common cabling systems in use for Ethernet and telephone systems in offices, warehouses, factories etc. Cat5e systems are low cost and high performance, and Cat6 provides even higher performance.
