April 19, 2007 -- Ortronics/Legrand has announced the launch of its Mighty Mo telecom enclosure. According to the company, the wall-mount telecom enclosure combines advanced cable management with security and flexibility, offering an ideal platform for changing office environments.
According to the company, telecom enclosure (TE) cabling provides a standards-based way for enterprises 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 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 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.
The Mighty Mo telecom enclosure 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 exiting cables 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 enclosure is available with an optional cooling fan and air filter to protect active equipment.
"TE cabling provides an attractive option as real estate costs for full telecommunications rooms continue to rise," comments Lars Larsen, director of physical support products for Ortronics/Legrand. "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."
