Maintenance is one of those factors you may not always think about when you're building out your fiber optic network.
This is the 13th in a Telect blog series, entitled The ABCs of Cable Management. Product Manager Aaron Monheim considers cable management as part of the maintenance program on your network.
Initial outlays of capital expenditures may be important, but the total cost of ownership (TCO) for products and equipment on your network are just as important. When an engineer looks at TCO, he has to consider the implications of maintaining that equipment.
He needs to bear in mind:
The Amphenol Telect superHD is a great way to demonstrate how easy network maintenance can be. With competitors' products, you need a special scope to inspect your terminations due to the adapter-pack design.
The superHD has popup adapter holders that provide technicians with best-in-class access to each termination.
Amphenol Telect is a cable management leader in fiber optic connectivity. The cable management on the superHD allows you to mine individual fiber jumpers out from the frame very easily.
The K-Links keep all the cable organized, allowing you to pull fiber out easily.
The spools in the cable manager have rotating heads to allow for individual fibers to be slipped-off of the spool, further simplifying the removal of a single jumper.
By making things like maintenance easier and less time consuming, an Amphenol Telect solution offers a lower cost of ownership due to the creature comforts and the ease of maintenance.
At Amphenol Telect, we don’t just care about installing our best-in-class products. We also care about how our products will continue to save you operating expenses by saving a technicians time for routine maintenance.
We do cable management right.
Aaron Monheim is a Product Manager of Fiber. He has been with Telect for three years and manages our high-density fiber distribution series, along with our cable management raceway solution, WaveTrax.
