Happy Holidays from CablesAndKits
Here at CK, the holidays are a special time where everyone gets warm and fuzzy feelings and excitement for the huge feasts that are quickly approaching (go ahead and pull those stretchy pants out of your closet). From October until December, there is non-stop excitement around the office. In October, we put on an epic Halloween Costume contest along with a yummy Chili cook-off. These two events have been known to bring the warrior out of people (we are a competitive bunch). November is all about being thankful and figuring out how many clever ways we can repurpose the leftover turkey. In December, we hold an ugly sweater contest, gingerbread house competition and end our festivities with a festive Christmas party which brings all of our families together.
Since we are all anxious to see what Santa brings us, here are the top requested items from the CK family: [Read more…] about Happy Holidays from CablesAndKits
Happy Thanksgiving from CablesAndKits
With Thanksgiving approaching, we thought this would be a great time to take a step back and recognize what we are thankful for. The CablesAndKits team has accomplished a lot this year, from new hires to welcoming new family additions.
We asked a few of our employees here at CablesAndKits what they were thankful for this year and here is what they had to say:
Interview: The Super Speedy OM4 Fiber Tells All
We recently had the opportunity to catch up with the fast-moving OM4 Fiber and sat down for a rather interesting interview. We feel like we got to know OM4 Fiber a lot better, and we wanted to share our findings with you.

Top 9 Reasons You Need Ethernet
Nowadays, we are always looking for the greatest and fastest technology. Regardless of the ever-changing landscape of that industry- we will always need Ethernet. Ethernet is one of the most important forms of networking cable used on wired networks. Here are the top nine reasons you will need Ethernet for your company or home network.
- Achieve high speeds on stabilized internet
With wired Ethernet, you will see a much more stable connection and increase in speed. Ethernet eliminates the possibility of Wi-Fi interferences or drops and gives you a piece of mind. We all know what it is like to drop a connection and run around frantically until the bar goes up on the Wi-Fi signal.
- Ethernet Friendship Bracelets
You can make friendship bracelets for all of your co-workers with the many different Ethernet colors. Relive your childhood and show those “special someone’s” at your office how much they mean to you by giving them their very own Ethernet friendship bracelet. It is the gift that will last forever. (Remember that Lifetime Warranty?)
- Direct file sharing
Transferring files over WiFi may not be the most efficient way to move large files. Instead, consider direct file sharing with Ethernet to increase stability and speed. If at least one of the computer’s network card supports auto-crossover, you can connect both with a direct cable.
Serving Others With Rainbow Village
Last weekend, CablesAndKits hosted the 3rd Annual Family Fun Day supporting Rainbow Village, a transitional housing community for homeless families with children. Serving Others is a core value that CablesAndKits employees incorporate in their daily lives. The “I’m for you” mentality as well as perpetually seeking ways to assist others embodies the Serve Others mantra.
CablesAndKits provided a circus-themed fun day that included a delicious BBQ meal, a face-painting clown, and a cake walk. Parents and children of all ages participated in the various activities along with our employees’ children. The day was filled with activities such as making origami animals, a ring toss, and they even had the opportunity to test their strength on the high strike.
The main event, however, was the infamous dunk booth, where the fiancé of one of our Customer Support Specialists took a chance with the collapsing seat as the children of Rainbow Village tried their hand at throwing the ball at the target.
We are so thankful for the opportunity to bless these children and their families with a day of fun.
Here are some pictures from CablesAndKits employees who attended the family day:
