Project Description

In recent years, the industry has heard a good deal of discussion about noncompliant and counterfeit communications cable used for in-building information and communications technology (JCT) infrastructures that support network, security and building automation systems. Much of this has been fueled by investigation, litigation and recent commitments among industry agencies and associations to prevent the influx of non-compliant cable into the marketplace through testing and education. Not only has recent testing brought the serious life safety risks of noncompliant cable to light, but the deployment of these cables also has significant implications for transmission performance and potential liability.
