With the convergence of traditional facilities networks with IT onto IP/Ethernet—and the explosion of Internet of Things (IoT) devices in buildings—more and more connected devices are now being deployed in the ceiling. Ranging from IP cameras, Wi-Fi access points and in-building wireless systems, LED lighting and sound masking systems, these devices all require wired connectivity.
Furthermore, these devices are installed in difficult-to-access areas. And, while the industry’s preferred method for connecting them continues to be through a patchcord connected to a permanently-mounted RJ45 outlet, in many cases this is not feasible. Although field-terminated modular plugs can be used, they are not well suited for installations in ceilings.
