Bringing Home BICSI: A CommScope Perspective

Posted by Jason Bautista on February 3, 2017

I’ve been to BICSI five times, and I bring some nuggets of learning home with me every year. No, really!

Take for example, sound masking. It is the addition of sound created by special digital generators and distributed by normally unseen speakers through an area to reduce distractions or provide confidentiality where needed. Some people call this white noise. I was vaguely aware of it, but now I am able to see that those speakers are becoming PoE (Power over Ethernet) devices connected by structured cabling. That is absolutely something we can address with a CommScope solution and it is something I can bring back to my team to investigate. That’s the great thing about BICSI: you get more intelligence on what’s available or what’s “trending” in the marketplace.

I talk more about what I learned below. What did you bring home from BICSI this year? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.

No time to read? Here’s your solution.

Connected and efficient buildings coverDo you have way too many books, magazines and articles at home that you want to read, but never have enough time? How about at work – do you have a backlog of emails, reports and other materials to wade through? If so, you probably didn’t have enough time to read the CommScope Connected and Efficient Buildings e-book. And you probably still don’t have enough time.

To make it easier for you, we produced a series of blog posts about the e-book. They all discuss various aspects of network connectivity inside intelligent buildings. Skim the list to find the one or two you have time to read. It won’t be the whole e-book, but it will at least give you a taste. You can always read the rest on your next vacation…or over the holidays…or when you retire.

Even a Small Bend Can Cause Havoc in Your Network

Posted by Daniel Daems on January 27, 2017

This blog post is part of a new video blog series—Fiber Friday. Our subject matter experts will provide you with some insight into the world of fiber optics, covering various industry topics.

I want to give you a tip: sharp bends in optical fiber are bad. Even small bends will result in high optical loss, especially in longer wavelengths. If the bend is permanent, it could even cause the fiber to break. The right design for a fiber management system can improve your overall optical stability. 

In this video blog, I explain how preventing optical losses preserves the long-term life of your fiber and network.


The Data Relevance Within the Oil and Gas Market

Posted by Jerson Calderon on January 26, 2017

Oil_Gas(1)This is the third installment in a series of blog posts on the oil and gas industry. It will explore topics such as data delivery, trends in the industry and the evolution of oil and gas networks.  

I believe it is safe to say that the demand for energy will never go away. Whether it is fossil fuels, renewable or green energy, we must continue to power everything. The demand for fossil fuels (oil and gas) has never been higher. That means oil and gas companies have a vested interest to search for other oil deposits in areas that seem either too expensive or in a very difficult location.

To move these vast operations to remote areas of the globe, the industry requires a well-trained workforce; however, there is a deficit in these skilled employees. According to reports, this deficit is expected to increase by 2030.
