  • Reporting

Working within the education, commercial, telecommunications, and government sectors, our engineers, using equipment and components designed for the job, ensure that we meet even the most demanding network requirements. So, whether you’re planning a small or large project, we can work closely with our partners to deliver the full range of telecoms and IT-related services, including the IT system installation and support and audio visual solutions.


We engaged Next Systems to work with our IT department in auditing and restructuring several of our production sites comms rooms throughout the UK.

The work required working out of hours and sometimes required working through the night to get the job done, the Next Systems team showed fantastic dedication through this work. The project required several months of planning and dedication, Next Systems instantly took on board our requirements and delivered on its promises.

Visual Inspection

Experiencing slow data flow rates and downtime? Many time-consuming failures can be caused by a lack of, or inadequate, termination practices that can result in potential, sometimes severe, network interruption. This is often the cause of underlying problems with your cabling network.

Our highly experienced engineers will carry out an on-site Visual Inspection, establishing whether any patch panels and user outlet terminations meet manufacturers’ and international standards, and make any recommendations regarding your cabling requirements.

Site Audit

Identified a critical performance issue? Want to upgrade your network to deliver higher data transfer rates or migrate to VoIP? It is more than possible that your cabling may not have been installed with sufficient flexibility to accommodate these changes; or the cables may not have been installed in accordance with the appropriate standards and compliance requirements; or they could have become damaged over time.

Whatever your requirements or identified issues, our Next Systems engineers are highly skilled and possess the expertise to identify, trace and map your cabling. We will clearly identify faulty cabling, determine redundancy incidences, provide an assessment of your data flow rates, and confirm the integrity of your patch panels and data points.

Random Testing

Our engineers, using the latest diagnostic equipment, will carry out rigorous spot checks to find out whether your existing cabling complies with national and international standards, quickly identifying potential fail-points, network slowdowns and loss of connectivity, and pinpointing physical capacity and signal strength.


At Next Systems, we will go beyond your existing requirements and look to the future, exploring opportunities to expand your network to accommodate your ever-changing needs in the future. Our knowledgeable consultants work closely with you to plan and develop an effective cabling solutions that has the flexibility and capability to support your ongoing needs.


Once we have completed our comprehensive Cabling Health Check, we will provide you with an in-depth report of the results, highlighting our key findings in a management summary including supporting evidence and our full, detailed recommendations.

  • Highlight areas of your structured cabling network that requires remedial work, and make our recommendations.
