Time is money. Technicians want to be as efficient with their time as possible when doing new installations or repairs for broadband cable services. When they are successful at spending as little time as possible in subscriber homes, are able to deliver services within promised time windows, and install quality devices customer satisfaction numbers are positively impacted. Efficiency and satisfied customers are good for cable operators’ bottom line.

In addition to knowing the best methods for home run wiring, splitting, and cable cutting, technicians can save significant amounts of time on each installation by choosing integrated devices, devices that are easy to install, and devices that can be used in multiple configurations.

Integrated devices

A centralized approach to in-home connectivity simplifies the installation process. In addition to having fewer pieces to install, using devices that combine two or more functions means fewer potential points of failure in the network. Devices such as the Gateway Passive, MVRA amplifiers, and MoCA point-of-entry filters integrate multiple components into a single device that save installation time, component space, and operating expenditure.

Installation aids

EZ brackets, like those that come with the MVRA amplifiers and Gateway Passives, are great for speedy and trouble-free installations.

Easily screw the brackets in at the initial set-up and subsequent devices will snap quickly into place.

Adaptable devices

The most flexible devices can also save a technician time significant time and work. MDU splitters, for example, lets technicians service up to 16 subscriber outlets with a single device. Universal splitters and MVRAM amplifiers are ideal for NID boxes since they can be used for all-ports-down installations. Utilizing these kinds of devices means fewer product types to purchase, fewer to load on trucks, and less time spent on each installation.
