The new launch from Draka Communications, Draka DrumFit, is designed to make life easier for anyone in the fibre deployment process who needs to calculate cable lengths.
DrumFit, a free download from Draka’s website, reinforces the company’s continuing focus on total cost of operations for fibre (or copper) infrastructure at all levels of the deployment process.
Billed as an advanced cable cut optimiser utility, DrumFit calculates the best way to cut multiple cable lengths from one or more cable drums or standard lengths. According to Draka, the simple software tool can, on average, save 50% of cable waste costs. It will also save time for installers, cable layers and factories in their daily inventory management of large stocks of drums for fibre infrastructure projects.
“ It takes only seconds for the Draka optimiser to produce a result,” said Dick van den Dool, director of DrakaXSNet Software Suite, Draka Communications. “With a possible 500 million combinations to find the optimal cutting choice from a stock of a hundred drums, this simple tool will add value to drum inventory management. It’s the next best thing to manual calculation, which can take an inordinate length of time.”
