BICSI offering CEC-accredited webinar on Ethernet cable testing

Aug. 10, 2023
The August 16 no-cost online seminar will describe how to use bit error rate to prove cable performance.

On Wednesday, August 16 BICSI is offering a free 1-hour web seminar covering bit error rate (BER) testing as a means of proving Ethernet cable performance. Softing’s Tom Jallo and Konstantin Houdepohl will deliver the session, which will be held live from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm EDT on the 16th.

Individuals who attend the live seminar in its entirety will earn one continuing education credit (CEC) toward the renewal of BICSI credentials including the RCDD, OSP, DCDC, and RTPM designations.

“When cable certification testing after installation is required, and specified, the task is clear—perform cable certification to the standards specified,” BICSI said in a description of what the seminar will cover and why it is worthwhile to attend. “However, when testing, or writing specs, for intelligent buildings, smart cities, industrial facilities, systems integration projects, especially working environments, there may be special application-specific requirements in order to prove cable performance.

“This session will introduce the bit error rate test, which makes sense when proving applications for performance in a working environment. Learn how the bit error rate test can prove if your 300-meter cable will perform, as it’s installed, in a harsh EMI [electromagnetic interference] environment, and even with continuously moving applications that take minutes to cycle, like cranes.”

The webinar will be delivered via Zoom, and registrants will receive a link to join the day before the live event.
