Nancy De Clerck, Product Manager and CPR co-ordinator at Nexans Cabling Solutions


Construction Products Regulation (CPR) and BS 6701 : what you need to know

BREXIT has not prevented UK’s standardisation bodies from adopting the European Construction Products Regulation for cables. BSI have seized this opportunity to reinforce requirements for communication cables in buildings and to remove any ambiguity or complexity with regard to cable choices in a given environment: a clear sign of an increasing acknowledgement that people’s safety comes first.

Optimized test regimes and workflows for the certification and troubleshooting of an cabling infrastructure found in today’s data centres


Common nominators in the  design and build of new data centers call for a modified test regime which was originally designed for the certification of cabling infrastructure in commercial buildings. This presentation covers modifications in the work workflow which should result in a more efficient process, improved system performance and margins as well as an improved reproducibility of test results.


Adrian Newsome, Network Connectivity-Business Development Manager at Schneider Electric


‘Demystifying the Fog’


This presentation investigates how the industry needs to adapt to rapidly changing IoT and M2M applications. Cloud services are evolving into Cloud/Edge or Cloud/Fog computing architectures. The definition of cloud and telecoms services is becoming blurred by the advent of 5G. I will discuss implications for management, security and physical infrastructure.

David Cuthbertson, CEO at Square Mile Systems Limited


Managing Connectivity with High Density Modular Cabling - AKA Avoiding "High Density Spaghetti"


Increasing connectivity densities and expanded use of modular fibre components is great for flexible cabling provision, but presents extra challenges for those having to manage infrastructure connectivity. While “spaghetti like” cabling is still here today with established cabling technologies, David’s overview of best practice methods will help avoid both low and high density “spaghetti” and unnecessary disruption in the data centres.
