Oberon Inc. now offers custom design services for wireless and telecommunications enclosures that are ordered in excess of 50 units. The company says it "has increasingly emphasized custom design as a way to meet the needs of unique and challenging deployments." It also points out that several products in its current catalog were developed as a result of the custom-design process.
"Notably among these is the Model 1052-HFHS wireless access point enclosure designed for Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital," Oberon notes.
Additionally, custom enclosures from Oberon have been used in a large-scale stadium deployment at a Division I college stadium. "The process inspired a line of three NEMA-rated enclosures designed for stadium and outdoor use," the company says.
Oberon's enclosures and mounting systems for wireless access points and networking components provide security, convenient access and an aesthetic appearance, the company says. It adds that its enclosures "can simplify compliance with industry guidelines and procedures such as ICRA in healthcare, PCI in retail and FIPS in federal government. The locking doors, ability to reach access points from below the back box, and secure installation attached to the building structure provide the security required in a variety of network environments.
"Additionally," Oberon concludes, "article 300.22 of the National Electrical Code specifies that unlisted equipment installed in the air-handling space above a suspended ceiling shall be secured in a metal enclosure, accessible via an opening panel or door."
