ECAT prefers to stay vendor neutral.

However, we would be more than happy to make recommendations for your specific application.

With over 20 years of hands on experience and attending world conferences with the top vendors, ECAT can help with your R.O.I.

            INSPECT, CONSULT, DESIGN, 3rd Party Testing and Project Management                                              with World Recognized Credentials.

John has completed the BICSI RCDD credentialing  allowing the design and certification of designs for Government, FCC, Schools, Hospitals and other projects requiring certification.

The RCDD is one of the most preferred credentials in mission critical communications designs.

If you are not familiar with BICSI or the TDMM and the RCDD test, typically this has a pass fail rate that does not exceed 35 to 40 % of the persons who are even qualified for a testing seat.

The TDMM covers the following:
