JT has some fun getting pulled by a snow machine by CABLExpress senior data center infrastructure architect, Rick Dallmann, to demonstrate the importance of using a fiber optic cable assembly that can withstand the rigors of installation. It is critical for a fiber assembly to perform well after installation.
It's one thing for a fiber-optic assembly to perform well right off the production line, an entirely different thing for it to perform just as well after the rigors of installation. It is critical that the assembly perform well after the installation because, if not, that could lead to downtime and nobody wants that.
A quality cable will be able to withstand these rigors. Just for fun, I had Rick Dallmann, our senior data center infrastructure architect, tow me around in a snowmobile using this.
We certainly don't recommend doing something like this with a fiber-optic assembly, because it definitely exceeds the 150-pound maximize pulling force. One hundred and fifty pounds is more than enough for any data center application. The critical aspect is to ensure the assembly and construction to withstand the rigors of installation.
That's what you get with good quality cabling. It actually pulled me on a snowmobile. Thanks for watching. I hope you learned something. For more information, visit us on www.cablexpress.com.
