Event details

In communications systems of all types, in all places, connection density is on the rise. Whether we’re considering wireless LANs in enterprise networks, telecom-room and data center rack configurations, data center interconnect systems, or a number of other outside-plant applications, managing a high density of connections is paramount to a project’s success. This webcast seminar, produced by Cabling Installation & Maintenance, examines high-density networks from multiple perspectives. Its presentations describe and bring to life the practicalities of designing and installing networks with a high density of connections.

As the founder of Oberon, I am pleased announce the acquisition of Oberon by Chatsworth Products Incorporated (CPI). For the past twenty years, making wireless network installations better for our customers has been the company mission. And I'm happy to say that many of our staff members at Oberon have been part of the journey for a decade or more, and have been able to share their skill and knowledge in the field.

As consumers, we experience every day how important WiFi connectivity is. It’s not a great revelation to say that WiFi availability has become vital to both businesses and consumers alike. Wireless technologies have come a long way since the 1990s, when one of their primary applications was connecting a PC in a telecommuting setup.

Oberon’s Model 1047 locking, 2 x 2 ft. (593 x 593 mm) suspended ceiling Wi-Tile™ enclosure mounts and secures Wi-Fi and Small Cell APs flush to the ceiling. This steel enclosure replaces a standard ceiling tile, and its larger back-box is suitable for larger APs and antennas. APs are mounted in the door, or inside the models with the ABS or frosted polycarbonate plastic dome. The interchangeable door simplifies AP and antenna moves, adds, and changes. Styles available for both standard flush grid and recessed grid ceilings (-T), and for both North American and European (metric) ceiling systems.

Oberon is the recognized leader in mounting solutions for Wi-Fi access points. In 2003 we introduced the first Wi-Tile™ locking ceiling tile enclosure for access points. Since then, the product offering has expanded to include H-Plane™ right angle wall brackets, Envelop™ recess wall and ceiling mounts, Hi-bar™ surface mount lockboxes, Skybar™ outdoor NEMA boxes, Netpoint™ Wi-Fi bollards, and now, in 2019, the M-Frame™ family of industrial access point and antenna mounting solutions.

Whether walking through the headquarters of a high-tech company or a university campus renowned for its centuries-old classic architecture, people possess certain expectations for the visual appeal of their environments. Holes poked in ceiling tiles to accommodate cables compromise the image of the high-tech powerhouse, and even a sleek network component can look out of place where no other signs of technology are present or desired.

Oberon is pleased to announce new mounting solutions designed specifically for the newest Cisco APs. The Catalyst 9100 series access points are built from the ground up, with new aerodynamic look and smooth finish, integrating RF excellence and next-generation technologies to provide the best-in-class wireless experience. Oberon's mounting solutions provide the sleek, professional aesthetic to complement these new APs, along with the physical security your network requires.
