Copper Cable Crap Shoot
Get Reel June 2009
In this economy, everyone is looking for a deal, even in network UTP cable. However, saving a few dollars today may mean spending millions of dollars later. Trusting lower-priced cables that have not met U.S. minimum requirements for performance and safety becomes a “cable crap shoot” for the building owners to pay later – not only in replacement costs but even worse, paying for it in lives. Installing cable that does not meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes can be disastrous. “Fire sale” takes on a whole new meaning.
