Managing Multi-site, Multi-technology Connectivity

David Cuthbertson – CEO – Square Mile Systems Ltd

Abstract: It is much easier to build a cabling infrastructure, than to manage it in-life where changes in technology, people and organizational boundaries are constant. Modern cabling design has to take into account a density and flexibility of cabling infrastructure that outstripped the capabilities of spreadsheets years ago, but for many it is still the only tool they have. Adopting standards such as BICSI-002, TIA606B and others are often only partially successful in making cabling easier to manage. Simple issues like naming and labelling are still industry-wide problems, though it doesn't have to stay like that. Often awareness of better techniques and practices is all that is needed. This presentation will cover methods used in a number of case studies where existing infrastructure needed to be better controlled and the steps taken. The objectives were faster delivery of changes, less risk of outage, more control of capacity - and less spreadsheets!

10:30- 11:10
Campus Fiber Infrastructure: The Limitations and how to Future-proof it
Patrice Mattez – LAN Commercial Director - Cailabs

Abstract: The presentation will go over existing techniques to upgrade multimode cabling infrastructure capacity. Firstly, the physical limitations of multi-mode fibers (MMFs) will be addressed by explaining the modal dispersion effect and its consequences on transmission capacity. Secondly, introducing several use cases from standard LAN layouts to POLAN with the ever-growing demand for higher bandwidth, it will be highlighted that the usual solutions to overcome legacy MMFs capacity limitations, e.g. mode conditioning patch cord or deploying new fibers and some others, are not always suitable or viable options for users and installers. Finally, the focus will then be on the modal aspect of the light travelling in MMFs as the key to higher bandwidths. Innovative emerging technology will be introduced, then applied to the previous use cases and shown as a new tool to overcome modal dispersion and harness the full capacity of MMFs.

ICT Infrastructure for Smart Buildings - Structured Cabling is not only for Voice and Data
Yannis Katris- CEO - TELECTRIK

Abstract: A smart building, also referred to as intelligent or connected building, uses both technology and process to create a facility that is safer, more comfortable and more productive for its occupants, and more operational efficient for its owners. Smart buildings, an 80’s concept but no longer a future dream, are integrating IT infrastructure with Electronic Safety and Security, HVAC, Lighting, Audio Visual, Energy Management, Environmental Monitoring and Control, and more. Structured cabling provides the foundation for the transport of information across this wide range of network-enabled devices that help to create the intelligent building. This presentation will inform how the cabling infrastructure is being adapted for the smart buildings of today. The series of standards written to help on the design and implementation of such a structured cabling system will also be presented.

12:30- 13:10
Cabling “Hot” topics: PoE and CPR
George Smochină - Technical Advisor – Legrand

Abstract: There have been two recent major changes influencing the communications cabling:

  • PoE which creates additional heat in the cables. What are the requirements in the standards? How do we ensure compliance? And how do we calculate the heat increase?
  • CPR: Since the regulations are in place for communication cables there are many questions concerning their application. What is really covered? What are the options possible? And most important, what is mandatory?

This presentation will clarify the question of designers and installers concerning these two primary aspects of the communications cabling
