Wading through the many manufacturers in the telecommunications space to find which products, technologies and solutions suit your organization can be a daunting task. Some manufacturers, such as Mohawk Cabling, go to great lengths to ensure their connectivity and quality compatability with other vendors.
In telecommunications, interoperability refers to the ability of systems, units and forces to accept services from other systems units or forces, enabling them to effectively work together. The degree to which certain products can work together can be heavily impacted in many industries due to proprietary patents, designs and products. In the telecommunications field, however, organizations like TIA (Telecommunications Industry Association), FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and the ITU (International Telecommunication Union), work to improve communications technologies around the world while also promoting compatibility between existing and forthcoming technologies.
A manufacturer that takes a proactive approach towards interoperability, like Mohawk Cabling, is not only able to take advantage of a much larger market, they are able to provide more customers with the comfort and ease of use which is largely becoming expected from companies today. Some of the big names with which Mohawk Cabling has ensured their compatability include:
Category 5e, Category 6, Category 6A UTP Compatability: Belden, Hubbell Premise Wiring, Leviton Telecom, Molex Incorporated, Ortronics, Panduit Network Systems Division, The Siemon Company
Fiber Optic Compatabiliy: Belden, Hubbell Premise Wiring, Leviton Telecom, Ortronics, Panduit Network Systems Division, The Siemon Company, 3M Telecom Systems Divsion
There are many holdouts in the cabling and data cable world, especially in electrical cabling systems - when these systems were being invented and developed for decades, it was inherently necesary to be able to protect work from competitors. The widespread implementation of communications systems has reversed this need though, and today, being able to work with potential competitors is vital to a companies success and that of their customers.
