TP-Link’s cloud-based Omada quickens IT response time

TP-Link, a provider of consumer and business networking products, recently launched the Omada OC200 cloud controller.

According to the company, the subscription-free cloud-managed wireless network gives decentralized IT operations the flexibility to control multiple access points in different locations and instantly troubleshoot from anywhere in the world without having to move from site to site.
The ability to set up a robust wireless connection at multiple sites while managing and controlling the network in a centralized location greatly reduces business costs and improves productivity, it added.
The Omada system includes a hardware cloud controller, EAP cloud-enabled controller software, ceiling-mount access points, and outdoor access points.

Powered by Broadcom and Qualcomm enterprise-grade chipsets, TP-Link says Omada is designed to:
Instantly Configure a Network: Centralized management with the Omada controller software and cloud access gives IT administrators remote access from a single location. Simple plug-and-play configuration allows for new access points to be set up within minutes.
Quicken IT Response Time: Network downtime can be costly for any businesses. IT administrators no longer need to travel to the physical location to troubleshoot wireless connectivity
Increase Network Visibility: The complimentary EAP cloud-enabled access point controller software allows the ability to control, adjust and visualize the entire network from any connected PC or device remotely.

Sticklers cleaning portfolio expands with three new additions

MicroCare Corp., developer of Sticklers fiber optic cleaning products, has enhanced its portfolio with three new offerings that allow technicians to clean easily and quickly.
NCassette CleanClicker MT Male contains guide pins designed for MT ferrules and includes a micro-woven lint-free cleaning ribbon preventing contamination from dust particles.
“Engineered with high absorbency, the cleaning wheel enables operators to get more cleaning than traditional shutter and trigger-style cassette cleaners,” the company says. “It easily removes particulate, oil and dirt from MT male-based connector systems and includes a smooth click-to-clean action, which glides easily to reduce the risk of end-face damage. All of this is packaged in a rugged, compact size cassette for ease of handling.”
Also new is the Adhesive & Gel Remover Pen. Adhesives, buffer tube gel and tape residue can be problematic when installing fiber, but with the “convenient pen dispenser, it can be easily removed, the company says. The pen also works well on grease, oil and some inks making it an indispensable tool in any kit, especially within datacom and enterprise centres.”
The third new addition is the MultiTask Surface Cleaner. The pre-saturated wipes are made from lint-free fabric and are designed to not shred or lint making them ideal for pre-cleaning, the company says.
