OEM Partnership


OEM Overview

Rainford Solutions has a long track record with original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) that provide the high-tech systems used across the market sectors that we service, for both indoor and outdoor deployment.

Why Choose Us?

OEM Partnership

Working together with our client’s in-house product development and engineering teams, Rainford’s specialist enclosure engineers help our OEM clients to optimise the total system.

This can contribute to increased reliability, uptime and availability.  A reduction in faults means lower operational costs for the operator, reducing total cost of ownership (TCO), and increasing end user satisfaction.

Considerations include:

  • Managing heat dissipation and airflow
  • Supporting neat, easy to maintain copper and optical cable runs
  • Protecting against hostile environments such as water, dust, corrosive atmospheres
  • Human factors to reduce installation and commissioning errors and field service time
  • Consideration of vibration, seismic or blast shock conditions if appropriate
  • Shielding from interference due to radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic fields (EMC)
  • Remote monitoring of environmental parameters, door security
  • Integration with DCIM systems
  • Physical security features against vandalism and intrusion

Check out the case studies below to see how we have supported Global equipment manufacturers in this way.

Project - Reduce Wiring Time

Project: Reduce Wiring Time
Sector: Tier 1 Telecom Operator


A national ‘flag carrier’ operator was implementing a new 10Gb network layer and wanted to optimise the delivery supply chain to both accelerate deployment time and reduce cost.

The Challenge:

Previously components were delivered to site and then power wiring beautifully laid in by experienced wiremen prior to equipment installation. Site to site this might vary according the wireman’s individual style. The serial nature of the work and number of trained staff made it a project bottleneck.

Our Approach:

Working closely with the client’s subject matter experts a very detailed Statement of Requirements was defined with all applicable regulations and in-house standards detailed. Building to that standard in a factory environment using repeatable processes and machine cut wiring lengths created a productionised low cost outcome identical to the Gold Build.
Rainford Solutions has completed almost 4,000 customer projects to date, which gives us a huge library of building blocks from previous designs and experience to draw upon. It means that unique solutions do not begin from a completely blank piece of paper, so development costs and crucially time to market are not inhibitors to a highly tailored product.

The Solution:

The final racks now include AC and DC wiring pre-installed and labelled; they are delivered to tile location in the exchange (central office) so that it just needs to be connected to site power and fibre.

Customer Outcome:

The new approach reduces time on site, errors, project management overheads, and often multiple visits, leading to a step change in efficiency and total cost as well as enabling much more rapid rollout for the operator to achieve the service upgrade.
