Today, network downtime due to fraying cables or rigorous installation conditions is unacceptable in any application. To preserve your network’s integrity, uptime and increase reliability, indoor/outdoor (I/O) fiber optic cables can, and should, be protected. Armoring of I/O cable adds a critical level of security and protection to the cable, and thus, your network. Join Hitachi Cable America to learn when to choose armored fiber optic indoor/outdoor cabling for your network.
Protect Your Network
The major benefits of armored fiber optic cabling come from the protection and prevention of damage both in cable installation and long-term use. Using armored I/O cabling simplifies your network: the network infrastructure can link from building to building without transitioning from indoor cable to outside plant cable (OSP) and back to indoor cable. I/O cables can travel directly from a network room, leave the building, and re-enter a building and go directly to the next network room- with all sections protected.
In addition to the efficiency and protection that armored options offer, utilizing an armored cabling solution allows for a streamlining of infrastructure as transition points, fan-out kits and innerduct installations become unnecessary. Hitachi Cable America’s armored I/O fiber optic cable is plenum-rated, the highest electrical code rating for communication cables. This armored fiber optic cabling can go anywhere within a building, providing you with the freedom to build the network to meet your exact specifications.
