Fiber-Optic Cabling Technologies for Installation and Management

May 22, 2014

Deploying and using fiber-optic cabling systems requires constant upkeep with current technologies related to these systems’ design, installation and management. While fiber-optic cabling provides a stable transmission medium and even an upgrade path for future applications, fiber systems’ capabilities—and the techniques used to install them—evolve as user needs change. This webcast seminar, produced by Cabling Installation & Maintenance and sponsored by Hellermann Tyton, Chemtronics, and Panduit, explores some of the more recent developments made with fiber-optic technologies.

Cabling Systems for Industrial and Other Demanding Environments

March 19, 2014

Many environments can place tougher physical demands on network infrastructure than those commonly found in typical commercial office-building environments. Whether the environment is a manufacturing shop floor with noise interference, an outdoor network sometimes exposed to the elements, or one with extreme atmospheric conditions, the cabling systems that support signal transmission must exhibit the physical toughness to stand up to rigorous demands. This webcast seminar, produced by Cabling Installation & Maintenance and sponsored by METZ CONNEC and Black Box, looks at the physical characteristics of cabling systems and components that are necessary for success when the transmission environment puts stress on the infrastructure.

Passive Optical LANs

February 12, 2014

A hot topic of discussion in the enterprise networking and cabling industry for more than a year, passive optical LANs (POLs) have been implemented in some high-profile venues in that time. The merits of POLs and the means of installing them continue to raise the attention of user organizations, system designers and installers. This webcast seminar, produced and delivered by Cabling Installation & Maintenance, will go into depth on the practicalities of deploying a POL.


The seminar, sponsored by 3M, Graybar, Vision Technologies, and Corning Optical Communications, will present information from multiple authoritative sources on the subject.
