Electrical and digital building infrastructures specialist Legrand will be prominently attending the 2022 BICSI Winter Conference in Orlando, Florida, from Sunday, Jan. 30 through Thursday, Feb. 3, in close conjunction with partner company Superior Essex, a top manufacturer and supplier of communications cable in North America.
Residing in BICSI booth No. 1015 for the duration of the show, the partners will showcase their collaborative nCompass solution, a technology platform which streamlines high-performance copper and optical fiber media for communications cabling and connectivity infrastructure.
In addition, the two partners will be addressing BICSI attendees on Tuesday, Feb. 1 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in a session titled, “Now More Than Ever, Installation Matters!”
The panel seminary will discuss the implications of common installation shortcuts on modern applications. The panel of industry experts includes:
- Jason Finnegan, Copper Product Manager, Legrand;
- Jay Grasso, CDCD, Field Sales Engineering, Legrand;
- Kevin Kearney, RCDD, DCDC, NTS, Director, Field Sales Engineering, Legrand;
- Corey Lacaire, RCDD, TECH, Field Sales Engineering, Legrand;
- Amir Sekhavat, Global Director of Product Management and Enterprise Market Development, Superior Essex.
“Unlike codes, IT standards are not enforceable by law and they are not just guidelines or best practices to follow at will,” observed Legrand's Kearney. “We look forward to addressing why shortcuts should not be taken during installation—particularly when working with high-speed fiber optic systems, PoE or smart buildings.”
As the professional association supporting the advancement of the information and communications technology (ICT) profession, BICSI currently serves more than 26,000 members and credential holders.
The partner companies bill the nCompass technology as exemplary of this year's BICSI event theme of "sustainability," in the form of an all-in-one platform of cabling, cabinetry, jacks and racks that offer a sustainable communications design able to handle present and future networking requirements.
“Our partnership with Legrand through nCompass is an example to other companies of how to create sustainable building solutions by seeking close collaboration within the industry,” said Brad Johnson, President of Superior Essex Communications. “We’re looking forward to showing the ICT community the future of sustainable communications systems at BICSI Winter 2022."
