Implementing Smart Building Cabling Systems the Right Way

ANSI/BICSI 007 provides requirements and recommendations for the design and implementation of structured cabling systems

BICSI, the association thats works to advance the information and communications technology (ICT) community, recently announced the release of its new Intelligent Building Design standard that aims to provide guidance for its members and the industry to keep step with evolving trends in ICT cabling systems.

ICT covers in total the spectrum of voice, data, electronic safety and security, project management, and audio and video technologies. It overtakes the design, integration and installation of pathways, spaces, optical fiber, including copper-based distribution systems, wireless-based systems and infrastructure that supports the transportation of information and associated signaling between and among communications and information-gathering devices.

According to a recent report from MarketsandMarkets.com cited by BICSI, the global intelligent building market is estimated to grow to approximately USD 24.73 billion by the year 2021, at an annual growth rate of 34%, compounded from 2016-2021. BICSI has responded to this growth and need in the marketplace by publishing its next ANSI-approved standard — ANSI/BICSI 007-2017, Information Communication Technology Design and Implementation Practices for Intelligent Buildings and Premises.

ANSI/BICSI 007 provides requirements and recommendations for the design and implementation of structured cabling systems and related applications for any size building or premise, regardless if it serves commercial, government, transportation, residential, or any other functions.

BICSI 007 also includes information for building automation systems, low-voltage lighting, combined data and power transmission (e.g., PoE, PoH), and a number of other systems that are routinely found inside intelligent building applications.

Connectrac® wireways are the new standard for bringing power & communications cable management to all interior applications. Free yourself from core drilling!

Surpass State Energy Requirements with Dual-Cooling Data Center CRAC Technology

See how professionals like you are taking advantage of the highest performing precision cooling system for their computer rooms and data centers, and why Data Aire is fast-becoming the number one choice for facility managers and building owners looking to decrease their energy consumption. 

Data Aire understands how digital technology and data gravity is rapidly impacting and transforming businesses. That’s why they developed ultra-efficient cooling technology to support the most modern (and not-so-modern) data centers.  Learn how One Wilshire in Los Angeles, one of the most advanced carrier hotels today, is surpassing California's strict energy efficiency requirements with Data Aire’s purpose-built system, which provide full-economization for 260 days – almost 72% of the year. That’s a measurable savings! Furthermore, the projected PUE on an annual basis for a full load is at or below 1.2.
