Networking Basics for Cabling Installers & Electrical Contractors
BICSI Continuing Education Credits (CEC): 1 RCDD, 1 NTS, 1 Installer Technician, 1 RITP, 1 Certified Trainer
Cabling installers and contractors in the past had typically focused on intallation of the cabling plant only. Cabling installers are, in some cases by choice and in other cases by customer demand, becoming more involved in the installation of active network components. In new construction, electrical contractors are being asked with increased frequency to install data cabling along with the electrical cabling they install; which also many involve the need for active network components. This session is intended to give installers and contractors who are considering adding the installation of active network components to thier product/service offering a basic understanding of common network components and protocols.
