Information transport systems (ITS) covers the spectrum of voice, data,
electronic safety & security, and audio & video technologies.
It encompasses the design, integration and installation of pathways,
spaces, fiber- and copper-based distribution systems, wireless-based
systems and infrastructure that supports the transportation of
information and associated signaling between and among communications
and information gathering devices.
The conference will delve into these facets, with particular focus on
things like: CCTV deployment; supporting video applications with IT
infrastructure; security & safety in building automation; AV system
design using twisted-pair and fiber optic technologies; and next
generation fibers and standards.
