BICSI spotlight awaits most exceptional cabling innovators
Do you know, or are you yourself, a cabling innovator? Step forward and be recognized.
Know a cabling innovator? Is your cabling contractor firm -- and those your most valued suppliers -- staffed with them? Don't keep it a secret! Be sure to get us your nominations today for the 2015 Cabling Innovators Awards program.
Carried out by Cabling Installation & Maintenance in cooperation with BICSI, the juried program will publicly honor the most innovative uses and applications of cabling technologies, highlighting stories about cabling and communication-system projects told by the principals involved in them.
"It has been a long time coming for professionals in our industry to be recognized for the inventiveness, vision, and yes, innovation they bring to the jobsite, whatever that jobsite might be -- from the consolidation of data centers for state-government agencies, to the coordinated efforts required to provide services to a multi-site retail establishment," says Patrick McLaughlin, Chief Editor of Cabling Installation & Maintenance.
Top awards will be presented to organizations that demonstrate excellence in the use of a product or system. Designers, installers, and users of cabling and communications systems may nominate their own projects or applications. Also, manufacturers or distributors that supplied products or systems can nominate exceptional projects for consideration. Submissions will be evaluated for:
-- Innovative approach to project or system design and implementation.
-- Value to the user, which can be measured by such qualities as return-on-investment, loss prevention, or business-efficiency gains.
-- Sustainability, characterized by a project’s overall eco-friendliness, its long-term value, lifecycle cost-effectiveness, or other measures you can describe.
-- Meeting a defined need as a well-conceived, well-executed initiative that fully met specific user requirements.
-- Collaboration, including communication and cooperation throughout the value chain through which the product or system was procured and deployed.
-- Impact, which can be identified by describing the difference the project made on the professionals involved, on the productivity of its ultimate users, and/or on society as a whole.
The awards will be presented at the 2015 BICSI Fall Conference, taking place September 21-24 in Las Vegas.
