Welcome to UTEL

The place where innovation never sleeps

A proven history:

UTEL is a long-established UK founded company with global reach and a proven track record in providing some of the most innovative test solutions the telecoms industry has ever seen. Working closely with some of the world’s leading telcos UTEL has expanded to serve a global market with offices in France, a joint venture in China and trading partners representing the UTEL brand on nearly every continent.

UTEL products have implemented test capabilities which many who went before us concluded were impossible, but by daring to innovate and investing the time to develop and perfect world-class solutions UTEL have satisfied the requirements of some of the most demanding testing scenarios.

UTEL's history lies in providing copper test access switches, controllers and advanced testheads used for precise fault diagnosis and accurate fault locations using advanced TDR techniques. UTEL equipment has been instrumental in helping one of the world’s largest telecommunications operators survive the regulatory rigors of Local Loop Unbundling (LLU).

A bright future:

Times have changed and an aging copper network is less able to survive the increasing demands placed upon it, the only realistic future-proof option is full fibre networks (FTTP / FTTH / FTTx).

Using everything learnt from decades of copper testing UTEL have developed a full suite of products to support a revolutionary approach to every aspect of testing physical fibre networks, from planning, build and commissioning through to real-time monitoring, fault diagnosis and fault location. Our FastLight software goes beyond the functions of test user interface and at a higher level functions as a full network inventory system including GIS mapping, planning and reporting tools.

Fast Light: Getting your next generation optical network right from the start

Critical to fibre networks functioning at full capacity is the standard of any installation works; fibre optic cables are far less tolerant of variance in the quality of connections, splices and cable bends. Choose UTEL to help you build a healthy fibre network now and maintain it in a service ready state for decades to come whilst simultaneously helping improve efficiency and drive down your operational expenditure.
