Welcome back to my second video sneak peak inside a communications enclosure. I gave you a little overview last time about what exactly is housed inside these metal boxes. Basically it is all the wonderful technology that is enabling broadband-speed Internet and video, whether wired or wireless.

One of the challenges service providers face when deploying that technology in the field is the thermal protection of their equipment. All electronic equipment generates heat. If the equipment is not kept at a constant optimal temperature, damage and/or decreased performance occur. The various ways of cooling electronics can vary greatly in terms of efficiency, operating costs, and environmental friendliness.

In this new video, we’ll take another look inside a CommScope cabinet to discuss the multiple ways we can help operators manage thermal cooling efficiently.
