January 20, 2014 – The Communications Cable and Connectivity Association (CCCA)—a non-profit group of cabling manufacturers, distributors and material suppliers in the structured cabling industry—is welcoming Leviton as its newest member.
“We at CCCA are thrilled that Leviton has chosen to add its voice to ours by joining the association. Leviton’s brand recognition and well-established reputation for quality fits perfectly with our membership goals and mission,” said Bill Kloss, OFS and CCCA chair.
“Leviton has followed the CCCA and has been impressed with its initiatives and focus on education and creating awareness,” said Ross Goldman, EVP and GM, Network Solutions at Leviton, who has also been named to the CCCA board. “We view CCCA as a strong industry association and an excellent platform for Leviton to address issues important to the structured cabling industry and to advance quality.”
According to the association, counterfeit and non-compliant products are two of the many issues it is actively educating the industry about to advance quality and protect consumers of cabling and connectivity products. Other CCCA initiatives include guidance on the pros and cons of data centre cabling architecture designs and collaboration with other groups on the development of industry best practices for sustainable, smart building infrastructures, it continued.
