Network is stable.

••>> One of the rainy day issues we have is water intrusion in the cable connecting the outdoor radio and the POE.  The sheath around the cable becomes perforated somewhere from a errant staple or UV deterioration. Water  gets into the cable and is siphoned like a straw down into the bottom of the cable injecting moisture into the POE device. The POE, which provides power for the radio, shorts out and service is lost. The shorting repair requires a visit, cable repair and a new POE.

If water is noticed, the sheath can be removed near the POE entry point and the POE placed above the or up hill of the wire to avoid damage and loss of service.  Call us (360)376-4124 if you need assistance.
