Nimans’ Trafford Park Manchester Trade Counter recently held a focus day about the growing influence of fibre connectivity in the data infrastructure arena.
Held in partnership with fibre specialist Greenlee Communications, industry experts were on hand to demonstrate the latest equipment which included, fusion splicers, OTDR meters, fibre inspection, fibre tooling, visual fault locators, light sources and USB power meters.
Greenlee Communications Regional Sales Manager, Nicholas Coyle, said the day was a resounding success as it reinforced the high profile role fibre now plays in the data infrastructure sector, as it rapidly becomes the connectivity method of choice.
“Events of this nature are very worthwhile not only for brand awareness but also for educating customers about how our portfolio has changed from our traditional copper and DSL offering. Greenlee Communications offers a comprehensive portfolio of fibre products to support all aspects of fibre testing, this is particularly important now as fibre is tethering multiple communication technologies together. From cameras and broadcast to telcos and security systems, fibre is the medium being used across the board.”
The initiative attracted a steady stream of visitors including a Worsley-based reseller who commented: “I’ve never dealt with fibre before but as an engineer it’s definitely something we are looking to embrace as the whole market is moving down that road. An event of this nature is invaluable in boosting knowledge and opening our eyes about the type of products and options available. I’ve also been pleasantly surprised about how cost effective the Greenlee solutions are, whilst the local support of Nimans is second to none.”
