Unlike some of the other cabling systems, it is a very challenging process to become a Hubbell Accredited Partner. Smartplc was approached by a London based financial company to undertake a copper and fibre installation at their new London City offices. The organisation had a bad experience with a previous installation company and needed a partner to work with them across their UK sites. Smartplc was recommended to the IT Manager as a quality organisation who would deliver a first class solution at a competitive price. Although Hertford based, Smartplc has experience of delivering solutions across the UK and Europe.
Hubbell Accredited Partner – Mission Critical Warranty
After the initial site survey was undertaken by the Smartplc network specialist, it was highlighted that the solution had to be undertaken by a Hubbell Accredited Partner who could offer the Hubbell Mission Critical Warranty. The parent company was based in the US and they had a worldwide strategy to use Hubbell Premise Wiring across all their satellite sites. Smartplc approached Hubbell about becoming a Hubbell Accredited Partner. After an initial meeting and subsequent extensive review process Smartplc was accepted on to the Hubbell Accredited Partner programme. The activation process involved Smartplc sending engineers on the Hubbell Accredited Partner training. The Smartplc engineers who attended the course have been trained on numerous cabling solutions and were impressed by the depth of the training and build quality of the Hubbell product set. After successfully completing this process, Smartplc was able to provide the Hubbell Mission Critical Warranty.
Hubbell Accredited Partner – Mission Critical Cat6 Cabling that Supports Gigabit Ethernet up to 50Mtrs
A particularly interesting part of the Hubbell Mission Critical Warranty is the ability to support Gigabit Ethernet over Cat6 up to 50Mtrs. The Smartplc Network Designer was able to modify the cabinet location and cable routes to ensure no cable lengths exceeded 50Mtrs. This meant that the end client had the benefit of Gigabit Ethernet support, normally associated with Cat6A cabling solutions, over the Hubbell Cat6 cabling. This will increase the return on the initial investment and illustrates how the Hubbell Mission Critical Warranty maximises the total cost of ownership.
