🎙️Ep. 65 | Supporting Longer-than-Standard Cabling Lengths while Ensuring Reliable Performance
🌐 The enterprise network has rapidly expanded beyond IT and is now expected to power and connect operational devices such as security cameras, access control panels and wireless access points. Some of these systems are often located away from the telecom room, placing them beyond the 100-meter limit established by commercial building standards such as ANSI/TIA-568 and ISO 11801. Join host of TTWS, Steve Cowles RCDD/NTS and special guests as they discuss how CommScope addresses this challenge with its new GigaREACH XL solution. We will also explore field testing strategies using the TestPro CV100 Multifunction Cable Certifier for these types of deployments.
