March 12, 2008 -- Beast Cabling Systems has added several new SPEED products to its Cabling Installation Systems (CIS) line. The products include the SPEED Labeler, the SPEED Patch Panel Organizer, and SPEED Installation Services.
According to the company, the SPEED Labeler is a lightweight, portable tool that acts as an "extra hand" to maintain order and allow technicians to quickly and accurately label cables for the rough-in pulling stage of a network infrastructure installation. Easily positioned in front of up to 24 boxes of cable, this ergonomic tool enables application of color-coded labels on both ends of each cable in a fraction of the time of conventional processes while eliminating errors, keeping kinks out of pathways, and reducing technician fatigue.
The SPEED Patch Panel Organizer is a labor-saving sorting board that eliminates the tedious task of cable sorting when routing into racks in the telecommunications room. This lightweight organizer features a Lexan dry-erase writing surface mounted on foldable legs with left-right sorting locations for sorting up to 384 cables by patch panel location.
The SPEED Installation Services deploy trained technicians to job sites to help meet compressed schedules or heavy workloads that exceed available staff. Available on short notice and for extended hours, the technicians are trained to install significant volumes of rough-in cable with maximum efficiency and reduced cable usage via the Beast CIS platform, according to the company.
"The network cabling industry has been calling for flexible solutions that make copper and fiber cabling installations more efficient and cost effective by speeding up the pulling process, eliminating errors, reducing waste, and maintaining proper separation of today's high-bandwidth cables for maximum performance," comments Greg Bramham, vice president of Beast Cabling Systems. "Through recent R&D efforts, we're please to offer a new line of lightweight and significantly lower-cost SPEED solutions that respond to the market need and appeal to a broad range of network cabling installers."
