Cabling Standards Update (www.cablingstandards.com), which serves the datacom, telecom, security, automation, and related industries, is offering free, no-obligation three-month (six-issue) subscriptions.
"We recently changed the Update from a 40-page printed-and-mailed quarterly to a 9- to 12-page PDF sent via e-mail twice a month," said Marilyn Michelson, editor, publisher, and founder. "Now, more than ever, people in the communications and integrated building systems businesses need timely, unbiased information. We deliver that."
To obtain a free six-issue subscription via e-mail beginning with the September 15th edition, those interested just need to send name, title, and company to the e-mail address [email protected].
The free-subscription offer extends through October 31. Those who respond after August 15 will be able to obtain all six free issues, including those missed.
"With a six-issue subscription, anyone and everyone in the industry-from the 'feet-on-the-street' in distributor datacom sales, to end-user MIS and IT professionals-can access high-quality information at no charge.
"We're not requesting credit card information or calling this a 'trial' subscription," Michelson further explains. "We're offering free information to our old friends in the industry-and, we hope, some new friends-to help them with their current struggles."
Update provides answers to many standards-related questions, including:
* How are the many standards involved in network computing data cabling, home networking, industrial and commercial building automation, security, and related areas created?
* How should they be implemented?
* What's working in the field?
Information in the newsletter is neither written nor influenced by industry suppliers.
The newsletter has been published continuously since 1995, and provides information on how to design, install, and maintain the copper cabling and fiber optics that carry information, signals, and images. It accepts no advertising or sponsorships in its pages or on its Web site.
More information on the free-subscription offer is available from associate publisher Joe Salimando, who can be reached via telephone at (703) 255-1428 or via e-mail at [email protected].
