Breakout Cabling Solution vs. Eaton All-in-One Breakout Fiber Patch Panel Solution
Breakout Cabling Solution
- Forces installer to use custom cables, which are more expensive and require longer lead times between order and delivery.
- All cables are of unique lengths, and nothing is standard.
- Cabling is complex, hard to manage, and does not scale well to high-density installations.
- Because every cable is custom-made, even simple changes are not simple.
Fiber Patch Panel Solution
- Allows installer to use standard cables for fast, simple installations.
- Breakout functionality is built directly into the solution so everything is standard.
- Reduced clutter simplifies cable management, even in high-density installations.
- Modular components add flexibility to the application, making it scalable for future expansion.
