Choosing the Right Innerduct Type for Your Next Fiber Optic Project

Innerduct has long been used to protect and segregate fiber optic cables installed in conduit outside-plant and premise environments. It also protects and segregates fiber cables in cable tray throughout telecommunications spaces and pathways. But did you know that there are multiple types of innerduct available? Where, how, and to what distance you plan to deploy fiber cables will dictate what type of innerduct is right for your project. Let’s look at the options.

The Impact Of Smart Buildings On Facilities Management

The transformation from traditional structures to smart buildings is reshaping the domain of facilities management. With a projection of 150%+ increase in the number of smart buildings worldwide, climbing from 45 million to 115 million in just five years, the impact of this shift is bound to be significant. Smart buildings provide a 360-degree view of a building’s operations, aiding in predictive maintenance, standards compliance, enhancing occupant experience and improving sustainability. However, the question remains: Are smart buildings a boon or a bane for facilities management?.

Cabling quiz: Standards and codes

Standards and codes are the bedrock upon which many cabling projects are built. Professionals in the ICT industry must be familiar with specifications from BICSI, the Telecommunications Industry Association, and the NFPA’s National Electrical Code in order to remain in compliance with many project requirements. So how familiar are you? Here’s a short 4-question quiz about which documents cover which topics. Get three out of four correct and you pass. Good luck!

Single Pair Ethernet: The Future of IIoT

Just as using a ‘codified and universal’ language enables the seamless exchange of ideas between people, in the manufacturing and cable industry, this is precisely what single-pair Ethernet (#SPE) does for the automation systems in industries. It allows for continuous real-time data transfer right up to the field level and helps bridge long distances in large plants like chemical industries.
