Carol Everett Oliver, will be speaking at the ISC West Educational Workshop on April 9th.  Carol, Channel Marketing Manager, Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company  and BICSI Northeast Region Director is one of four presenters for Designing a Structured Cabling Solution for IP Camera Installations.  Please register to learn more about this exciting solution.

This 4-hour training session will look at unique design and installation considerations from start to finish. 

Presenters will give an overview in a lecture style, but then involve the attendees with four hands-on exercises:

• On the TR end – punching down cable to a patch panel

• On the device end – installing a plug to the horizontal cable

• Testing – testing the modified link

• Physical Infrastructure – set up the cabling system from the switch to the  
  camera

• Camera set up – Viewing the cameras through the video management
   software on laptops provided
 

The presentation will cover the following topics:

  •  Understanding the demands and differences of IP video surveillance system types and functions
     
  • Guidelines on selecting the most appropriate cable (fiber or copper, plenum or riser, indoor or outdoor)
     
  • Integrating PoE through copper and fiber (includes schematics)
     
  • Following best industry standard guidelines for installation (pathways, components, termination)
     
  • Existing standards and upcoming standards -- Issues that are not currently addressed by the existing TIA standards, but are being addressed by the ANSI BICSI ESS Standards Committee (such as direct attach – plug vs. jack)
     
  • Testing overview of different tools and test procedures (difference between certifying, verifying and simple wiremap tests).  Includes copper and fiber
     
  • Camera technology – analog vs. IP
     
  • Why IP
     
  • Best installation practices and procedures for installing IP cameras
