The universal connectivity grid (UCG)

A smarter approach to updating your building's infrastructure

In-building connectivity has to keep pace with the evolving needs of today’s workforce. Tenants want easy access to wired and wireless technology and flexibility in the layout of offices, collaboration spaces and other common areas. To attract and retain tenants, enterprises need to be able to refurbish, retrofit, and expand facilities on demand. The universal connectivity grid (UCG) is a cabling design structure for making connectivity in buildings and enterprise spaces more efficient and flexible.

The universal connectivity grid divides floor space into evenly sized areas—called “cells.” By deploying consolidation points (CP) in the ceiling of each cell, buildings can provide easy connections to the core network. Now, simply running a Category 6A cable is all you need to modify:

  • Wired LAN
  • Wireless technologies
  • Occupancy sensors
  • Intelligent lighting
  • Audio/visual services
  • Building automation
  • Access control

The UCG can help you streamline workstation moves, adds, changes and upgrades. You’ll need less materials and labor, reduce OpEx over the life of the installation, and you’ll improve the management of your facility infrastructure while minimizing installation disruptions.

With the UCG, your building is prepared to tackle your current connectivity needs and ready for the challenges of the future.
