Engineering Excellence Environment: Wireless Communications / Application: Microwave Technology Customer Problem:
Customer was not able to close the door of the telecoms rack, due to cable routing issues and the size of the cable bundle.
Without the cable, the project for over 5,000 sites could not start, resulting in a potential revenue loss of £30,000 per site.
CHH designed a unique connector to route the cable assembly through 180 degrees, allowing the mating of the connector in a considerably smaller space.
Integrity of the signal was preserved. Customer Benefits:
“CHH were the only UK company who fully understood our urgency and requirements and were able to deliver a test ready cable within 3 weeks, which meant that we could start the roll out of our 15,000 sites. In addition since the start of the project 3 years ago there hasn’t been a single failure. Potential failures could cost anywhere from £2,000 to £20,000 per site.”
CHH solution designed and prototyped in 2 weeks, volume production in 5 weeks.
Rack door closed securely. Installation of the cabling and engineer waiting time reduced by 25%. Project slippage was avoided.
Customer programme delivered on time within 6 weeks. Total resilience: zero failures in 3 years (9,000 cables supplied).
