Commercial Buildings and Offices
Tech-savvy tenants prefer to move into a building with offices able to connect equipment and devices together quickly. This allows staff to spend their time on what’s really important -- growing their business. As a result, many building managers have invested in ICC’s fiber optic and category-rated copper-based cabling systems. These systems keep all sections of their buildings network-ready, from the data center to the telecom room, and even in meeting rooms, lobbies, workstations, and offices.
Hundreds of K-12 schools, colleges, universities, trade schools, and other educational institutions have an ICC structured cabling system installed on their campus because it’s aggressively priced to fit within tight budgets. Moreover, it provides better value by connecting more students and staff to high performing data, phone, audio, and video in the classrooms, dorms, labs, library, auditorium, and administrative offices.
Technologies like IP convergence, Cloud, and Power over Ethernet (PoE) are bringing more pressure to the network. Space constraints, air flow, and scalability are a tremendous consideration as well. Many data center managers prefer an ICC structured cabling system in the data center because it overcomes these challenges and brings them spec’d brand quality, such as 50-Gold®, UL®, ETL®, TIA®, RoHS®, IEEE®, Lifetime Performance Warranty, without the hefty price tag.
Residential Homes and Multi‑Dwelling Units
Builders and developers are always looking for ways to build better homes and increase their value without increasing their price. One proven solution has been ICC’s residential structured cabling system. For instance, ICC’s plastic wiring enclosures are 40% stronger than big name brands. The metal enclosures use 20-gauge steel that is 20% thicker than what big brands use. All ICC enclosures are ETL® rated for safety, equipped with many features, and sold as combos with voice, data, and video modules included to lower the cost. As a result, ICC has been installed in thousands of tract homes, high-rise apartments, condos, townhomes, and custom homes from the distribution center to the living areas.
Hotels require a significant amount of bandwidth to enhance guest services and improve the working environment. Hospitality IT directors and managers are not only focused on ‘high speed Internet access’, but also changes in technology; such as IP based phones, digital entertainment, guest services systems, and advanced security systems. To meet these changes, hotel properties have integrated ICC structured cabling systems to allow for continuous communication and streamline the complete guest experience from the time of reservation to the time of checkout. ICC’s cabling systems make all areas, including the lobby, hotel room, restaurant, fitness room, meeting room, and the conference space, conducive to the needs of all guests.
Doctors, nurses, and medical staff rely heavily on real-time data to access patient’s information. Data communications between patients, equipment, and staff cannot be compromised when lives are at stake. IT managers in the health care industry insist on ICC structured cabling systems because of their proven track record in medical hospitals, offices, clinics, and centers. ICC has been shown to be reliable throughout all areas of healthcare, including but not limited to the telecommunications room, the emergency room, inpatient units, the radiology department, and surgical units.
Government and Military
As military and defense technology companies provide governments with advanced systems and services for command, control, communications, intelligence, and surveillance, Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Technical Officers (CTOs) have repeatedly relied upon ICC to help them find the right Certified Elite Installer to install their structured cabling system. ICC has always provided the product knowledge and technical support to ensure the cabling systems adhere to the rigorous set of standards and regulations required by the U.S. Federal Government, state-level government agencies, and the military’s armed forces.
Many financial institutions experience slow and underperforming networks because of outdated cabling systems. The integrity of data and operations are put at risk if communications are disrupted or fail. IT directors and managers have relied on ICC’s structured cabling systems to improve the technological experience of banks, wealth management firms, and other financial institutions. From mobile banking to consumer protection to operational workflow and to video security systems, ICC’s network infrastructures help serve your needs.
In the retail industry, there are two main goals: enhance the customer’s experience and manage operations efficiently. However, their biggest challenge is having a cabling system that can support today’s technologies and high-bandwidth applications from the retail store to the warehouse. From multi-national mass merchandisers to specialty retailers, their solution has been hiring an ICC Elite or Certified Elite Installer to install an ICC structured cabling system. The result — retailers were able to increase communications between customers, staff, and operations from the point of sale (POS) system to the VoIP phone system to digital signage to video security systems and to self-service kiosks, making it their biggest return on investment.
Cities and not-for-profit organizations have to work with limited budgets to support local community spaces such as community and senior centers, libraries, swimming pools, and recreational facilities with technology services. From data and voice communications to security systems to messaging signs and building automation systems, the list is endless. The solution: investing in ICC’s structured cabling systems. Managers of technology services are opting for an ICC system because it connects more of the public to services and staff, and delivers high-bandwidth, high-speed services without the hefty price tag of big spec’d brands. Overall, ICC offers a better value at a reduced cost, leaving flexibility in your budget.
As technologies, such as 4K and 8K ultra high-definition television (UHDTV), Internet-protocol television (IPTV), and multi-channel audio emerge, they become increasingly difficult to support for legacy cabling systems. Poor audio and visual experiences for audiences are instant and can ruin your reputation. As a result, broadcast engineers are investing in ICC’s fiber optic and copper structured cabling systems to support the needs of today and the future. Installing an ICC cabling system assures absolute signal integrity and no system downtime. ICC offers high-performing communications to provide the best experience in entertainment for studios, sports-venues, broadcast facilities, radio/TV stations, outside broadcast vans, production companies, recording and post production studios, and theaters.
Having a structured cabling system that can work in both controlled and harsh environments is critical in the manufacturing industry. Typically, external sources that emit high levels of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Radio-frequency Interference (RFI) can cause signal loss and disrupt communication between departments or network equipment. To ensure operations run smooth, many facility managers have invested in an ICC shielded structured cabling system. The system is shielded 360-degrees; from the jack, to the cable and to the patch panel to prevent disruption.
