Oberon, Inc., a leading manufacturer of wireless access point and telecom enclosures, has announced the new Model 1082-00 network cabinet for homes and offices aimed at reducing clutter and providing secure, convenient, aesthetic placement of networking equipment and computer peripherals.
Oberon's new Home and Office Network Cabinet is a wall-mounted home/office cabinet for organizing networking components. The Network Cabinet provides a convenient way to interconnect and stow broadband modems, wireless routers, small network switches, power strips, network storage, external hard drives, and other components.
"Aesthetics were a major consideration for this project," explained Oberon President and Chief Engineer Scott D. Thompson. "The typical office has a variety of components sitting around taking up space. This vital equipment is vulnerable to dust, spills, being knocked over, and someone simply walking away with them. The Home and Office Networking Cabinet protects those components behind a locking door while at the same time making them basically disappear from view."
The "invisibility factor" also comes into play in the cabinet's door material, an impact-resistant ABS plastic designed to be virtually transparent to wireless signals. The white enclosures accept wall paint for a completely personalized look. For orders over 50 units, Oberon will produce custom enclosures in any decor-matching color for a small additional fee.
The Oberon Home and Office Network Cabinet measures 22" x 22" x 4" deep with a steel back-box. Adjustable shelves, hook-and-loop strips, and tie-downs for wiring give the user the flexibility to mount equipment in a wide variety of configurations to suit individual needs. The user's power strip can be placed directly inside the enclosure, further reducing the visual clutter of the office. Ethernet switches and other equipment can be mounted directly in the space where they are needed, Bringing Bandwidth Closer to the UserTM.
The Network Cabinet mounts to the wall in minutes. The low 4" profile of the enclosure makes it appropriate for mounting just about anywhere in the home or office. Wireless equipment for multiple cubicles can be mounted across the room in open space, external hard drives can be placed in easy reach just over desk height, or the cabinet can be mounted completely out of sightlines near floor level.
