Huge Success for Mayflex with IP Courses

Mayflex, the cabling infrastructure, networking and physical security solutions distributor, has seen recent success in the first of a series of CCTV Over IP Networking courses.  The free of charge course, held at the start of September, was open to Mayflex’s customer base and aimed to help those who understand analogue CCTV requirements but are yet to make the transition into the IP marketplace.

The first course was a huge success, with 80% of the feedback giving the day an overall rating of either excellent or very good; and the general comments stated that the day was very informative.  Well over half the attendees said they would attend similar events in the future and 100% of the delegates said they would recommend the course.
