Flexible, Mobile Workforce Challenges Traditional Network Cabling Strategies
October 27, 2015
Today’s mobile workforce needs a flexible workspace where it is easy to deploy new technologies, add workers and move workstations as required. The key to a flexible workspace is careful distribution design.
The challenge is to create a workspace that can be reconfigured quickly. The design goal is to create a network where cable and connection changes are quick, easy and cause minimal disruption to the work environment.
Chatsworth Products (CPI) Wall-Mount, Zone and Wireless Solutions provide three easy ways to improve your designs so that the network is more flexible and prepared for future changes.
Wall-Mount Racks and Cabinets
Wall-mount racks and cabinets allow you to create locations for equipment where space is limited or does not exist. Store and secure equipment on the wall inside or outside of the telecommunications room, and connect remote groups of users to the network. CPI offers several styles of fixed and swing gate Wall-Mount Racks and Cabinets.
Zone enclosures let you pre-wire a work area so that connections to the rest of the network are close to network users. Zone enclosures make connection changes within the zone easier and less disruptive because only the cables within a zone are moved, added or changed. CPI Zone Enclosures include consolidation point enclosures and telecommunications enclosures that fit under a raised access floor or within a drop ceiling. CPI also offers Multi-User Telecommunications Outlet Assembly (MUTOA) floor boxes for the work area.
Wireless enclosures secure access points close to network users. Access points create Wireless LANs that connect wireless network users with radio signals, eliminating the need to connect users with cables. Wireless enclosures protect access points and secure network connections. CPI offers several styles of wall-mount and drop ceiling Wireless Enclosures, including several NEMA-rated models that can be used in warehouses, industrial environments and outdoors.
