An Insider View Of Dallas’ New Museum

Shawn Kordes August 9, 2012

CommScope announced in March 2012 its involvement in the Perot Museum of Nature & Science project in Dallas, Texas. We are supplying all the CAT6 single- and multi-mode fiber cabling going into this exciting new building, which will also utilize a CommScope distributed antenna system for indoor wireless access. Our enterprise network will support an array of utility and communications applications including a building management system and interactive museum displays. This project is reminiscent of our work in Dallas’ Cowboys Stadium where we provided a complete wired and wireless network solution.

Justin Ashford, director of technology, Perot Museum of Nature & Science, was kind enough to provide a video update about the construction project. Take an insider’s look at the museum’s progress as Justin discusses the CommScope cabling network and how it will be utilized. We plan to give you more updates about the museum project as we near its opening in early 2013.

Will you be one of the million visitors expected to experience the Perot Museum of Nature & Science?
