[June 28, 2023] Network engineers face several challenges when it comes to managing fiber optic cabling. Some of the most common pain points include the need for cable managers that can work both vertically and horizontally, a rigid but flexible enough product that works in a dynamic environment, quick lead times on fiber trough, responsiveness and product support on fiber trough, solutions for low ceiling height (containers, shelters), and the need for drop solutions for wire basket.
The need for cable managers that run both vertically and horizontally, or both in the same run, is a common challenge. In many high-density environments, managing your space with cable managers is key to ensuring efficiency. At Amphenol Network Solutions, we offer a range of solutions that can work in both configurations, including our WaveTrax and FlexTrax lines. These solutions offer the flexibility to accommodate your specific needs and ensure that your fiber cables are properly protected and routed.
In dynamic environments, it is essential to have cable management solutions that are rigid enough to protect the fiber cables, but still flexible enough to adapt to changing conditions. Our FlexTrax line is specially designed to meet this need, as it is designed be both durable and lightweight. It can safely guide fiber cables to vital equipment while securely protecting fiber from inadvertent bending or kinking.
In low ceiling environments, it can be challenging to manage fiber cables effectively. Our Cablelinks line is designed to meet this challenge, with articulating snap-together links that create a flexible, safe path for fiber or copper cabling while maintaining bend radius to avoid attenuation. These components can be configured to meet the specific needs of different low ceiling environments.
Another common challenge in proper management of fiber cables is the need to save time and costs during field installation. Our answer to this need is to create a solution that is quickly and easily installed. Our CableLinks management system utilizes snap-together technology to maximize efficient installation. . Additionally, our customizable solutions ensure that our customers get the most cost-effective solution for their specific needs. Finally, we pride ourselves on our commitment to customer service and support. Our experienced team of engineers is always available to answer any questions and provide expert advice on our products. We also offer comprehensive product support and training to ensure that our customers can get the most out of our solutions.
When evaluating different fiber cable management solutions, here are some expert tips to keep in mind:
1. Determine your specific requirements - Consider factors such as cable density, cable types, and facility layout to choose the right solution for your needs.
2. Look for flexibility and modularity - Choose solutions that allow you to adapt to changing network requirements and easily expand or modify your network.
3. Consider installation time and cost - Choose solutions that can be quickly and easily installed to save time and money.
4. Prioritize cable protection - Choose solutions that provide adequate protection from damage due to environmental factors, human error, and equipment interference.
5. Look for seamless integration - Choose solutions that integrate seamlessly with other cable management systems and equipment in your network.
