Nov. 11, 2022
The Cabling Podcast sits down for a chat with Liam Taylor, European business manager, fiber optics, at Microcare, LLC, global manufacturer of the Sticklers brand of specialist fiber-optic cleaning tools.

Liam Taylor is European business manager, fiber optics, at Microcare, LLC, global manufacturer of the Sticklers brand of specialist fiber-optic cleaning tools. A seasoned participant in the information and communications technology (ICT) industry, Taylor is a member of the IES/SC 86B Working Group 4.

In the latest episode of The Cabling Podcast, Taylor recaps and expands upon the salient points of his recent article for Cabling Installation & Maintenance magazine, "Why fiber network cleaning is essential to colocation space success."

In the course of the discussion, Taylor and CI&M senior editor Matt Vincent also unpack the features and benefits of Sticklers' newly introduced "breakthrough" fiber-optic cleaning tool, the Pro360 Touchless Cleaner.

Designed to quickly and completely clean oils and dust across the entire endface of both male and female fiber-optic connector ends via a single push of a button, MicroCare contends that its Pro360 Touchless Cleaner stands to change the way fiber-optic technicians work, significantly improving fiber cleaning speed and effectiveness.

"Regardless of where a connector is along the network, contamination always has been and always will be the number one threat to network performance," asserts Taylor. "It's also the cheapest and easiest to prevent."
