Emerson Network Power has announced the availability of the SmartMod Concrete Universal Enclosure (CUE), a modular solution that provides environmental protection for electronics in the access network. It replaces the Emerson NetXtend CUE product.
The SmartMod CUE provides infrastructure for the middle and last mile, and offers security, environmental and electrical protection. Unique features include a hydrophobic filter that provides free-cooling, multiple options for standard thermal management, and cross-connect boxes for fiber and copper cables on the outside of the enclosure.
Deployed partially below ground, the SmartMod CUE protects against severe wind and rain storms that can damage above-ground telecom facilities, reducing the potential for service interruptions and the associated increased capital and operating expenditures for service and repairs.
The SmartMod CUE is less than 108 square feet and does not require special building permits for installation in most municipal regions. Noise reduction kits are available to meet municipal noise restrictions. www.EmersonNetworkPower.com/EnergySystems
