On the second day of the Cabling Systems Conference-Tuesday, September 23-the conference will break into two tracks, one aimed at cabling-system end users and the other aimed at cabling contractors. The tracks will be held simultaneously between 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM.

"Designing and Installing Gigaspeed Fiber" by Bo Conrad, Crossbow Communications

The goal of splitting the agenda into two tracks for this day is to give attendees information they can put to practical use without having to sit through presentations on topics that do not directly apply to their day-to-day responsibilities.
On Monday, September 22 and Wednesday, September 24 the conference will be presented in plenary format. Monday's topics include standards, codes, and technical updates while Wednesday's sessions cover residential cabling.
