Assuring Infrastructure Readiness for Smart Buildings-Part 1 of two part series

Presented by

Lisa Schwartz, Dir. Product Marketing, Steve Cowles, RCDD/NTS, Technical Services

About this talk

In Part 1 of this two part series, we'll take a look at assurance of infrastructure readiness across smart building technologies. Smart buildings no longer represent a distant vision of future technological advancement. The ability to converge multiple building applications on a single communications platform exists today, and that ability is being realized in some modern structures. For many others, the opportunity exists to design and deploy the infrastructure systems that are the foundation for building intelligence, particularly including the cabling and networking systems that serve as the central nervous system of an intelligent building. This presentation focuses on detailed tactics used to ensure the physical network infrastructure is capable of supporting a smart building’s communications requirements. This includes the physical cabling, with a look at the various tests defined in ANSI/TIA 1152.A, testing of SPE links, Power Delivery, the importance of SNR based testing to ensure required link speed. In Part 2 - "Live Demo of Infrastructure Test for Smart Buildings-Part 2 of two part series", we'll show the various types of infrastructure testing discussed in part 1 in a live product demonstration format. We will be using the TestPro CV100 Multifunction Cable Certifier, to give the viewer a real world look at the various types of testing that should be performed, and how quick, simple, and cost effective it can be to provide assurance of infrastructure readiness.
