No Need To Mind The Gap

Not all cables lead to the same termination, so when a network gap for Alcatel-Lucent had to be bridged between two very different formats, GEM came up with a unique solution.

The puzzle was to craft a cable with a single assembly at one end and a high-end assembly of twelve RJ45 ports at the other.

Our solution was to design, then part-source, part-manufacture the component. The result was an ‘industry-first’ – a high-end Tyco MRJ21 assembly as part of a fabricated 12-port patch panel with a Centronics interconnection – a blend of inspiration and skill cooked up from the latest technology and our ‘one-stop-shop’ capability.
