Learn from the Experts at the BICSI Winter Conference!

Planning to attend the upcoming BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition on January 20 - 24 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, FL?

Fluke Networks’ experts will be offering plenty of educational opportunities to learn all about PoE, fiber best practices and how to make sure your next singlemode fiber project is on the right path. 

And you can stop by the Fluke Networks’ Booth #215 during exhibiting hall hours for hands-on demonstrations and one-on-one time with our experts –you might just find out about some exciting new innovations we’re working on.

Pre-NFL Fiber Formula

Is it really enough to just know about fiber, or is it better to really understand it? Truly understanding what formula to use when determining your data center fiber design and how to actually quality and quantify your data center fiber infrastructure will go a long way in ensuring that your next fiber deployment will meet both today’s and tomorrow’s high-speed applications.

As part of the TIA’s Fiber Optic Technology Consortium, our own Jim Davis along with other industry experts will be holding the pre-conference seminar The Fiber Formula—Fact, Fiction & Fantasy to equip you with the information you need to make sure your fiber design and installation practices stack up. Worth 3 CECs, this seminar will take place on Sunday, January 20 from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. 

We promise it will be worth missing the first half of the NFC playoff game, and you’ll still be able to catch the full AFC playoff game that evening. (That should make Patriots’ fans happy!)

Back by Popular Demand

In case you missed the very popular session on four-pair PoE at the BICSI Fall Conference, now’s your chance to find out what everyone was talking about. Join me on Monday, January 21 from 8:30 a.m. to noon along with other industry experts for the pre-conference seminar on Four Pair PoE:  Powering the Future of Intelligent Buildings and the IoT. 

Worth 3 BICSI CECs, you’ll find out how today’s advanced higher-power Type 3 and Type 4 four-pair PoE is taking PoE from an occasional power source to the significant force in powering the IoT and intelligent buildings and what you need to know when it comes to designing, installing and testing these advanced remote powering applications.

Road to Singlemode

With the use of singlemode fiber increasing in data center and backbone deployments, and new shorter-reach, cost-effective data center singlemode applications in development, today’s designers and installers need to make sure their next singlemode project is on the right path.

While there are similarities between singlemode and multimode installation and testing, it’s important to understand the key differences and considerations for singlemode – some of which are driving singlemode adoption. On Wednesday, January 23 from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m., Jim Davis teams up with Adrian Young to dispel myths and answer the most common singlemode fiber questions surrounding performance parameters, testing and troubleshooting, cleaning and inspection, and even safety.
