Swift identification to minimise downtime


In the Datacom & Telecom industry speed and recovery are crucial during incidents. Swift identification and recovery of both wires and components is important to get applications back online fast, and avoid upsetting thousands of customers. Brady offers easy-to-apply solutions, with maximum durability and readability for all identification challenges the industry faces. An ever-evolving industry needs ever-evolving suppliers. Brady is always researching new materials and products to offer durable identification solutions, even in the harshest of environments. Brady identification products are researched and tested to make sure they comply with industry standards.

Most widely used wire and cable markers for a reason


Brady offers a full range of wire & cable labelling solutions. Brady’s self-laminating labels are the most popular wire identification solution in ICT & Telecom, especially used with copper cables, the typical CAT6 or CAT7 solutions. Brady offers specific labels that, when removed, don’t damage a fibre-optic cable. What’s more, Brady fibre-optic cable labels only slightly touch the fibre-optic and never interfere with its data transfer capacity.

Self-laminating labels protect their printing with a water and UV resistant overlaminate, making them suitable for use both outdoors and underground. Our sleeves can be repositioned when applied. Once heated, they are also insulating. The Brady Tag range offers many options including overlaminates and the ability to withstand harsh environments for many years. For panelbuilders, Durasleeves are the preferred solution, allowing identification of cables before or after they are attached.

Outlet Identification shows a high level of professionalism


A clearly identified outlet shows a high level of professionalism. Pre-cut labels can be used to mark outlets. A continuous strip is a good solution when many different types of outlets have to be identified. To further facilitate outlet identification, Brady presents a series of portable label printers with built-in cutters. Brady has a wide selection of tags to identify outlets.

Depending on the conditions your outlet operates in, Brady offers different materials to guarantee tag readability even when in contact with solvents, cleaning solutions or wide temperature ranges.

Never detach the wrong cable again


When scanning a rack, every connection should be clearly marked. Regardless of the brand of patch panel or the type of connector (RJ45, fibre, etc.) a clearly marked connection point will help saving time by making sure the wrong cable isn’t detached. To neatly mark your patch panels, Brady software contains an exhaustive list of patch panels for swift and easy marking.
