L-com Reports Counterfeit Cables Are a Disturbing Trend

Cable passed off as pure copper but is actually copper-clad-aluminum.NORTH ANDOVER, MA - 5/14/12 - L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, took a public stance today on the hot-button issue of counterfeit cables, posting an extensive article on its web site. The article both educates and alerts cable buyers to the many ways unscrupulous manufacturers and distributors have flooded the market with sub-standard connectivity equipment.

The issue of counterfeit cables has plagued the connectivity industry for years, but has greatly expanded in the past twelve months.  Several other major cable manufacturers  and industry publications have already come out with information, articles and alerts on the subject. L-com's post is their first publicly posted alert, though they have been advising customers about it for years. It comes with detailed information on the types of counterfeiting that L-com has encountered and the dangers of using sub-standard cables. It also includes a link to a 14-page independent report to qualify the exact characteristics and problems.

"I think the base of the problem is education," said David Gallagher, L-com Product Manager. "When buyers know and understand the consequences for buying just the cheapest cable without checking the actual construction, they are spared the enormous expenses and damages that could occur."

L-com posted its alert in the White Papers section of its Technical Resources page. David Gallagher also pointed out the availability of free engineering drawing downloads on L-com's web site so buyers can be clear on the details of their products.
