SUFFOLK, UK & AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: UTEL, a leading independent research and development company for telecommunications systems, announced its new product, Robo-Cab, an innovative fully managed ADF system which will revolutionise the future operation and management of FTTC.
UTEL is to unveil Robo-Cab at Broadband World Forum 2014, in Amsterdam. The system can fully automate the whole cabinet, including copper cross connect, VDSL splitter jumpering, copper line testing, VDSL DSLAM port testing and cross connect testing.
The complete copper network management system includes key components such as a 625 x 625 line to any ADF, copper and golden modem test head, test access switch and a remote powering up converter.
“With data volumes on the rise as new technology trends, such as the Smart Home, are finally realised, the reliability of networks has never been more important for operators,” said Frank Kaufhold, MD of UTEL. “Robo-Cab eliminates the higher costs and risk of human error which come when manually managing interconnect technology. This will allow operators to take back control of their network management.”
Using Robo-Cab provides many business benefits, including eliminating OPEX and facilitating exceptional customer service; full automation of the provisioning and repair processes; providing remote ‘no touch’ cross connect and eliminating truck roles and human error.
