Richardson, TX (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
ASYMBLIX, the leading provider of OSP cabinet retrofit solutions, announced today that its products have been listed in the LISTOFMATERIALS.com database as compliant with the Buy American provisions of the Rural Electrification Act. The RUS retired the telecom program’s “List of Materials” (LOM) in May 2011 but continues to require that equipment purchased using program funds meets program specific standards and specifications including the Statutory Buy American Requirement which remains a cornerstone requirement for loan approvals.
LISTOFMATERIALS.com is an information service which indexes equipment based on certifications and standards relevant to compliance with regulations pertaining to RUS telecom funding programs using documentation provided by manufacturers. The site is an invaluable tool for borrowers to use as a replacement to the retired RUS LOM. By indexing standards and compliance documentation in a web-friendly database accessible for free, borrowers can quickly determine equipment compliance and can download the supporting documentation they must gather to make the case with RUS their equipment decisions are compliant with program regulatory guidelines.
Asymblix’ listing in the LISTOFMATERIALS.com database affirmatively establishes and documents that the items listed meet RUS telecom Buy American Requirements. By preemptively listing in the database, Asymblix has made it easy for program borrowers to evaluate the equipment against RUS standards and to collect the documentation they are required to address for each item of equipment they acquire using program funds.
LISTOFMATERIALS.com founders are leading authorities on the RUS LOM having worked with it since 2003 listing hundreds of items of equipment for multiple manufacturers. By taking this experience and applying it to a new web-based database, the company seeks to streamline material sourcing for independent Telcos now that the LOM has become defunct. Asymblix OSP retrofit kits, power upgrade kits and cooling solutions can be found on the listofmaterials.com website by selecting Asymblix in the “Manufacturer” drop down box.
Asymblix has a proud tradition of building its products within the US, with a majority of material sourced from its home state of Texas. While other suppliers have outsourced manufacturing to foreign factories to obtain bottom-dollar costs, Asymblix has focused on providing value, having now saved Telco carriers millions of dollars in outside plant upgrade costs through its OSP retrofit product lines.
