A small piece of metal could save the U.S. wireless industry up to $5 million. The metal is CommScope’s new SnapStak Plus cable hanger. The serious cost-savings come from the total amount of time saved during installation. Approximately five million cable hangers are installed in the U.S. annually, and the unique design of the SnapStak Plus saves about one minute of install time each. That’s about $5 million in total cost savings—all thanks to this small piece of metal. Plus, with the SnapStak Plus, operators will also no longer need to purchase, inventory and install grommets to adapt hangers to different cable diameters. The SnapStak Plus already accommodates different cable sizes. To see how easy they are to use, check out this video. If you have questions or want to learn more, leave me a comment.
