P1 Group’s Mitch Dallas and Barry Brandt, communications technicians, recently won first and second place respectively in the Z-MAX Challenge. The competition was hosted by The Siemon Company and Accu-Tech and featured a new style jack that takes significantly less time to terminate than its predecessors.
The contest consisted of terminating both ends of a piece of Shielded Cat-6A cable with the new style jacks and then testing out following completion. Dallas won with a time of 3 minutes 0.076 seconds, narrowly edging out Brandt by just two thousandths of a second.
With the help of this new technology and its experienced craftsman, P1 Group will be able reduce labor time for its customers.
