GLEN BURNIE, MD, September 18, 2018 – Vision Technologies, Inc., a leading systems integrator announced today that its Wi-Fi and PON Installation for an Outdoor Multi-Use Development was recognized by the judges of the annual Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards program. The judging panel consisted of cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators and managers with vast professional experience.
Vision was honored with a Platinum level award, the program’s highest honors. Vision Technologies designed, installed, and commissioned a unified Wi-Fi and PON system for The Wharf, a mile-long, 24-acre, $2.2 billion mixed-use development along the Potomac River in Washington, DC. The system provides state-of-the-art, pervasive 802.11ac wireless services to residents, workers and guests traversing the outdoor, garage, and 6,000-person indoor-convert-venue areas. The entire implementation, testing and commissioning was accomplished on a fast-track, 30-day schedule. Passive Optical LAN helped The Wharf to overcome some specific challenges.
Vision’s President and CEO John Shetrone accepted the award at the BICSI Fall Conference in San Antonio, Texas. After thanking the presenters from Cabling Installation & Maintenance and the other manufacturing nominees, Shetrone commented, “It’s organizations like yours that add true value in the industry and we are honored to receive this prestigious award.
