Bothell, WA, United States, 2015/02/06 - Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies will unveil three groundbreaking system solutions for copper, fiber and AV networks at the 2015 BICSI Winter Conference, from February 23-26 - BerkTekLevitonTechnologies.com / BICSI.org.
These new systems - on display at BICSI booth #907 - will enable copper migration to Cat 8 and 40GBASE-T, consolidate patching in racks for ultra-high density fiber optic systems and allow BICSI contractors to increase their business with commercial audiovisual applications in education and enterprise projects.
On February 2, Leviton announced that new Atlas-X1™ connectivity and Berk-Tek cable had been tested to meet performance standards found in the current draft 2.0E of the TIA-568-C.2-1 Category 8 proposed standard, and can support the operation of IEEE 802.3bq 40GBASE-T applications up to 30 meters. Visitors to the booth can see how the technology behind this advancement is being applied throughout a new line of Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies high-performance copper systems, including UTP and shielded Cat 5e, 6, and 6A systems. In addition, Leviton will host a Lunch and Learn session titled "40GBASE-T: Strategies for a Simple Network Migration," that covers end-of-row topology and architecture, enterprise applications and the latest standards and copper products. This event will be held Tuesday, February 24 at 12:20 pm. in the Marriott Canary Ballroom 1-2.
The new Opt-X® UHD Fiber Optic Enclosure System will also be on display. Integrating Leviton HDX Cassettes and Berk-Tek's small-diameter Micro Datacenter Plenum (MDP) cable, this system offers the highest fiber density per rack unit and the smallest structured cabling footprint in the industry. The system meets the needs of IT managers looking to capitalize on existing network infrastructure space, while providing easier port identification and cable management, improving airflow and minimizing heavy cable loads associated with ultra-high density fiber installations.
Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies structured cabling systems support commercial-grade AV over twisted-pair cabling, which helps BICSI RCDD certified installers become AV experts for their customers. At BICSI, Leviton will reveal several new IT/AV systems, and Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies experts will present "6 Basics of Successful AV Deployments with HDBaseTTM Over a Category Cable Infrastructure." This BICSI education session will be held on Wednesday, February 25, from 1:30-2:30 pm., in the Crystal Ballroom J2.
Leviton connectivity and Berk-Tek cable combine to create the industry's premier copper, fiber and AV end-to-end solutions. With uncompromised customer support, technology-driven products, quality-assured solutions and a limited lifetime warranty for qualified installations, Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies (berkteklevitontechnologies.com) delivers the highest return on infrastructure investment available.
