View the Connect 2021 Virtual Event's Full Agenda

Day 1: Data Centers

Day one, focusing on data centers, covers topics including fiber-optic cabling installation, termination, and management; the role and impact of edge facilities; meeting the demands of high-density cabling environments; and managing pathway systems.

Day 2: Enterprise Networks

On day two we turn our attention to enterprise networks, discussing the capabilities of smart buildings—from the fiber-optic and wireless infrastructure that makes them work, to hands-on matters of troubleshooting and connectivity, and a look into technological developments related to Single-Pair Ethernet. This day also will include an exclusive opportunity to attend a one-hour training session from one of BICSI’s professional instructors.
