Troy from Jim’s Antennas Wollert recently installed an external RU cabinet and commercial antenna for an internet provider business in Epping
A RU cabinet is the outdoor counterpart of a sever rack, a shelf specifically designed to hold and organise IT equipment.
But, why would a business store their electronics outside?
For this company, Troy installed the RU cabinet outdoors they did not have the luxury of a dedicated room for sever equipment. As such, the owners were concerned about lack of space within their business and managing the noise of their hardware.
Outdoor RU cabinets provide physical security to prevent unauthorised access to crucial IT equipment. As they are well-secured and often placed in hard to get to spots such as on the roof.
Not only that, but these cabinets also improve space utilisation within a business, and make it easier to manage excess caballing.
If shopping for an outdoor RU cabinet be sure that the one that you choose is dust and water proof, and is well ventilated, so that your network equipment is kept in optimum condition.
While on this job, Troy also installed a commercial antenna for the company. This will allow Foxtel and free-to-air channel signals is received by all TVs within the business.
