Pre-Conference Seminar

"CCTV Deployment: Understanding the Whole Picture"

  • Carol Everett Oliver, RCDD, ESS, Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company
  • Glenn Adair, Panasonic Systems Solutions

Putting together an efficient IP surveillance system requires combining quality components and technologies. From design to implementation, this includes selecting the right cameras and cabling infrastructure that toegether can provide the highest quality video for any application. This includes observation, investigation and recognition. This seminar will look at the unique design considerations for many installation environments through a detailed educational presentation, as well as a hands-on exercise.

Pre-Conference Seminar

"Fiber Trends, Architectures and Cost Modeling"

  • Alfred Flores, RCDD, Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company
  • Rodney Casteel, RCDD, NTS, OSP, CommScope
  • Ryan Chappell, Draka Communications

Are you using the right fiber type? Are you using the right architecture? Are you using the most cost-effective approach? In this seminar, the TIA Fiber Optics LAN Section (FOLS) will discuss fiber trends, fiber architectures and how to evaluate the cost of the different architectures using the new FOLS cost model. They will examine the current fiber trends based on industry recognized survesy, reports, and fiber manufacturer's data to make clear, factual recommendations. Then, using the newest version of the FOLS cost modek the presenters will take an in-depth look at how to integrate the fiber recommendations into the different architectures and calculate the most economical approach.

Tuesday, January 19

9:30 - 10:15  a.m.

Opening, General Session

"40 Gb/s Over Twisted-Pair Cabling: Planning for a New Ethernet Application"

  • Todd Harpel, RCDD, Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company
  • Valerie Maguire, Siemon

As computing and storage rates explode, data centers, server clusters and even LANs will benefit from Ethernet transmission speeds in excess of 10G sooner than anticipated. The logical next step in Ethernet speed is 40G supported by copper twisted-pair cabling. In order to be able to provide a future solution, copper cabling and LAN equipment experts will begin project development.
