A web-based seminar hosted by Cabling Installation & Maintenance and delivered live on Wednesday, July 18 will discuss products, technologies and approaches related to industrial networking systems. Entitled "Cabling for Industrial and Other Harsh Environments," the seminar will be approximately one hour in duration and will be held live at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT on July 18.
"Structured cabling systems are not always deployed under pristine conditions," Cabling Installation & Maintenance said when announcing the seminar. "User environments such as industrial and manufacturing plants are inherently challenging in that they require physical toughness from the cabling and networking systems within them. Likewise, some cabling systems reside where they are subject to temperature extremes, outdoor weather conditions, and physical dangers such as crush. This webcast discusses the types of cabling systems that are best equipped to stand up to these environmental conditions while remaining capable of supporting signal transmission."
Confirmed speakers for the seminar include Bob Martin, vice president of marketing and business development with EtherWAN Systems; David Gallagher, lead product manager with L-Com; and Frank Koditek, product line manager with Belden.
Among the topics of presentation will be the following.
- The physical characteristics of a cable that enable it to perform under extreme conditions, and options available for that purpose
- How to tell if the connecting hardware deployed in an environment will be able to stand up to physical and environmental adversity
- Capabilities of media-conversion and network equipment to tolerate harsh environments
Individuals who attend the seminar in its entirety will be eligible to receive one continuing education credit for the following BICSI professional designations: RCDD, RITP, Installer, Technician, Certified Trainer.
After its live broadcast, the seminar will be available for on-demand viewing for six months.
