APRIL 16, 2007 -- Ortronics/Legrand has launched the Mighty Mo Telecom Enclosure. The wall-mount telecom enclosure combines advanced cable management with security and flexibility, offering an ideal solution for the changing office environment, according to the company.
The Mighty Mo Telecom Enclosure is wall mounted, supports up to 48 users, and provides capacity for active and passive equipment. It includes features such as a brush cable exit that prevents dirt and debris from entering the enclosure and simplifies rearrangements of the exiting cable(s) to accommodate moves, adds, and changes in the work area. The product also provides swing-out access for easy re-termination and patching, advanced cable management capabilities, and compliance with UL1863 and EIA-310 standards. In addition, the telecom enclosure is available with an optional cooling fan and air filter to protect active equipment.
Telecom enclosure (TE) cabling provides a standards-based approach to address the challenges of ever increasing bandwidth and performance requirements, continuous requests for moves, adds and changes, and rising real estate costs. TE implementations, as defined in the TIA/EIA-569-B and TIA/EIA- 568-B.1 Addendum 5 standards, allow the backbone cabling to pass through the telecommunications room (TR) directly to the TE, significantly reducing the size and number of TRs needed on each floor. This new architecture also provides greater flexibility for adding capabilities to the network without disrupting existing TRs. Extending the backbone closer to the workstation enables higher performance to support the increase in bandwidth-intensive applications.
"TE cabling provides an attractive option as real estate costs for full telecommunications rooms continue to rise. The new Mighty Mo Telecom Enclosure provides a cost-effective and efficient solution for IT managers as they address the many challenges of their day-to-day responsibilities," comments Lars Larsen, director of physical support products for Ortronics/Legrand.
