A Comprehensive MDF Cleanup in Redfern: A Case Study

Many residents were experiencing regular dropouts, and the antiquated and broken equipment was in desperate need of an overhaul. SECURE A COM was brought in to resolve these issues, providing a critical upgrade and rectifying the connection problems. This is a detailed case study of that MDF (Main Distribution Frame) cleanup. AKA MDF Upgrade.

Cleanup and Upgrade

The Importance of Correct Reconnection
Careful mapping and reconnection were vital to ensure that residents didn’t lose their internet services. The meticulous process required a deep understanding of telecommunications, avoiding any need for return visits to fix problems. This approach resulted in a 100% success rate, with downtime on each service limited to only 10 minutes during installation.
