Optical Cable Corporation introduces RiO™, an inherent solution combining a multichannel fiber optic cable assembly with an interconnect patch panel to form a unified deployable solution. By incorporating the patch panel directly into the reel housing, the RiO solution can provide significant cost savings by reducing the amount of hardware needed to connect to multiple devices. With a wide variety of cable assembly options and built-in connector panel configurations, the RiO system offers the flexibility to fit each application’s specific requirement. In addition, the RiO offers the same great functionality as all OCC MARS reels including storage efficiency, rapid deployment and easy operation. Its unique approach to deployable communications allows customers to simply Drop, Plug and Play™.
