ODM or Original Design Manufacturer is a term used to denote an organization which designs an end product on the lines specified by some other firm. Using expertise of such an organization does away with the need of maintaining an operational site on the part of the firm for which the product is designed.
On the other hand, Original Equipment Manufacturer or OEM is used when a company manufactures a sub-part that is used in an end-product manufactured by another provider. For example, Company X will be termed as an OEM in case the power cords manufactured by them are used by Company Y.
Solutions provided by these providers, however, require some modifications to be introduced on the part of the provider. This calls for tweaking the wiring systems in most cases. Organizations previously used to rely heavily on conventional wiring systems in order to achieve this objective. But times are changing and an increasing number of providers are shifting from a conventional wiring system to a more evolved and developed optical fiber-based wiring solution.
The many advantages associated with using these systems are:
- These wiring solutions are more affordable as compared to traditional coaxial cables, especially when the data is to be transferred over long distances.
- Optical fibers are extremely lightweight and compact. This gives the much-needed breathing space to an organization when replacing an older system with a technologically advanced one.
- They are extremely effective in carrying large amounts of data and immune to various electrical and other interferences. For example, optical fibers don’t conduct electricity, which reduces risk for technicians when fixing glitches in the system.
These features make optical fiber-based wiring solutions an ideal option when it comes to wiring devices used in OEM/ODM systems. Give us a call today for all your OEM/ODM wiring needs.
