Competition can be a good thing, and it is one of the principles that our nations economic prosperity has been based off of. The information age we live in has seemingly made the world a smaller place, and often competition can get more than a little heated. The telecommunications industry is no different, however, in the spirit of cooperation several industry guidelines have been set forward by the Telecommunications Industry Association. One such forward thinking manufacturer that embraces a multi-vendor environment is Mohawk, with their Mohawk Accredited Contractor (MAC) Program.
What Is MAC?
The TIA 568-C.2 standard states that "This standard specifies a generic telecommuncations cabling system... that will support a multi-product, multi-vendor environment." Mohawk's Open Architecture as well as their Mohawk Accredited Contractor (MAC) Program are both forward thinking programs that promote cooperation with other manufacturers and products outside their own. The MAC program is a BICSI accredited training for Mohawk product installations, allowing the installer or contractor to recieve numerous benefits. In addition to the technical support for Mohawk products, installation troubleshooting and industry standard and application updates, those who are MAC certified gain access to extended product warranties and even valuable rebates.
Why Should I Be A Part Of MAC?
Mohawks Open Architecture cabling options allow connectivity with a number of well-known industry brands, including Hubbell, Leviton, Ortronics, Panduit Siemon among many more. When choosing Mohawk, you ensure that your installation will perform according to industry regulations as well as be covered by Mohawks extensive warranty protection. For non-MAC users, products are guaranteed free from material and workmanship defects for one year. By becoming a Mohawk Accredited Contractor, you gain the ability to offer a 25-year extended warranty to your customers. Further, MACs receive rebates based on the dollar value of Mohawk products purchased per calendar year, which can add up to some huge savings.
