Webcast Description:

A recent survey of professionals across the information and communications technology (ICT) industry indicates that user organizations have begun to adopt latest-generation technologies like the Internet of Things, and more users plan to do so in the near future.

For professionals who design, install, or supply the physical-layer systems that support these technologies, it is essential to understand their bandwidth and power requirements. This webcast seminar, produced and hosted by Cabling Installation & Maintenance, will review highlights of this recent survey, paying specific attention to the anticipated uptake of IoT devices, remote powering via Power over Ethernet, 5G, and end-user organizations’ plans to upgrade their cabling systems’ capabilities. Along with these insights, the seminar will include information from technical experts about the cabling systems that will be required to support these applications. These experts also will educate attendees on the standards and best practices for designing and installing physical-layer infrastructure systems, so they are capable of supporting current and future technologies and applications.
