As of April 2016 BT Openreach have changed their FTTC installation process. This has meant they no longer supply or install their modem for FTTC connections. Service providers now need to supply VDSL2 modems that connect to the BT phone socket.

Due to popular demand we have added two Technicolor routers to our portfolio that have BT Wholesale approval.

These are the TG588v v2 and the TG589vac. Both routers support ADSL2+, VDSL and are ideal for Fibre to the Cabinet scenarios. The TG589vac also features IEEE 802.11ac wireless standard for the 5 GHz band, enabling even higher throughput and better Wi-Fi coverage.

The TG589vac also features a dedicated Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and 4 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Ports where as the TG588v v2 features 4 Fast Ethernet LAN Ports.

Find out more information: Technicolor TG588v v2
Find out more information: Technicolor TG589vac

We offer a router set-up service for our resellers. For a small charge we can pre-provision either generic or customer specific settings to your routers prior to despatch. This enables fast and smooth installation at your customer's site.

Eartec have recently developed a new range of premium headsets, which are available from ProVu. Eartec is fast becoming the popular choice for headsets and since its launch we've had a very positive response and experienced an extremely low return rate.

The new Eartec 700 Pro Series offers users a slick, yet robust design. And with in-built, two tier noise cancelling technology, it gives an enhanced user experience, even in noisy and busy working environments. We believe these new headsets will be a great addition for users wanting more from their headset but at an affordable price point.

Meet the new Eartec 700 Pro Series

Eartec 710 Pro Monaural Headset
Eartec 710 Pro Binaural Headset
Eartec 710V Pro Monaural Headset with Volume Control
Eartec 710DV Pro Binaural Headset with Volume Control
Eartec 710UC Pro USB Monaural Headset
Eartec 710DUC Pro USB Binaural Headset


Choosing the right headset

Take a look at our headset selector helping you to choose the ideal headset for your customers based on their requirements and personal preferences.
