    Default Hire UTP/CAT5 Cable Tester/Certifier

    I'm looking to hire a UTP/CAT5 Cable Tester/Certifier like a Fluke, Wavetech or Lantech for a few days. Who would be able to assist me with this?

    Hire one? any reason you don't just want to buy one?
    From what I remember, they're pretty cheap...

    I would imagine that any hiring costs could come to the same amount as buying outright.

    Uhh.... just buy one? It is like R600 last time I saw. Hiring one is an awful lot of admin. The office techie has to have one.

    Agents are people too.
    Just because I'm technically bloody and imperialist doesn't prove anything!

    R600 was more than I thought. You get them in those networking toolkits (along with punch, stripper, crimping tool, etc)... those definitely aren't R600.

    Trust me guys if it was just R600 then I would not hesitate for a moment to go out and buy one. The testers/certifiers I'm referring to are all over R100K to purchase.

    njm-sa,

    Where are you located? There are several companies that hire out testers.

    I think the people here think you are talking about one of those pisswilly things that just check the wire maps & continuity. A proper tester used to certify installations is more expensive than a new small car.

    Ponder, I am located in Pretoria. I see you are on the same page as me. Please advise me of any companies that you know of in the Pretoria/Johannesburg area from whom I'll be able to hire a Fluke/Wavetech/Lantech tester/certifier?
