Introduction, Benefits and Changes to the Network of Preferred Installers Program
Program overview as well as update on program changes.
New Product and Service Innovations
With continuous changes to the LAN market commonplace, services and products are evolving daily. This session will discuss new service and products that Corning Cable Systems offers that will make life of an installer easier. Topics covered: Closet Connector Housing (CCH) Innovations, BOM tool improvements, changes to the Core Product Catalog, the Design Guide and much more.
Thinking Inside the Box! The Story of the New Closet Connector Housings
Recently we went out and conducted a sophisticated Voice of Customer effort where we asked 100s of customers what they liked and disliked about the current housings in the market. This session will demonstrate the improvements and features to our top selling CCH hardware line that you helped us develop. Topics covered: CCH-01U through the CCH-04U, splice cassettes, single person mounting brackets, internal/external strain-relief brackets, transitional strain-relief brackets, routing guides, sliding tray, platinum interior and many other advancements.
Testing Procedures and Troubleshooting Best Practices
Testing is an integral and necessary step in any fiber optic installation and for an NPI member it is a requirement that each system be tested to a minimal standard. This session will highlight what those minimal standards are and basic testing and troubleshooting best practices. Topics covered: Proper testing procedures, testing requirements for warranties, standards update, troubleshooting and reporting best practices.
Market Trends and Pretium EDGE Improvements and Advancements
With 1 and 10G networks commonplace, considerations need to be built into data center designs to prepare for 40 and 100G. This session will highlight key topics addressed during last year's NPI-100 course and will introduce new Pretium EDGE extensions, including our 144 LC connector EDGE-01U.
