BG’s technology team ventured to Orlando to take part in one of the two annual conferences held by BICSI. Hosted by BICSI, a global association supporting the advancement of information and communications technology, the team learned a lot during the 2019 Winter Conference and Exhibition held January 20-24. With a consolidated place to learn industry standards and trends along with time to talk with manufacturers, BG’s, Eric Rubottom (FTC), along with Eric Aden (AVN) and Kristin Hanna (DEN), soaked up the palpable knowledge offered by a diverse roster of presenters. The week-long conference was a fertile ground for learning as well as time for continued cohesion as a team.

BICSI attendance also aligns well with the progressive approach BG’s technology team is taking to be on the leading edge of opportunities. A few themes developed during the sessions on where the industry is going including GPOL (Gigabit Passive Optical LAN), methods of distributing AV over structured cabling, and POE (Power Over Ethernet) solutions. The conference also achieved a third goal for Eric Aden as he further develops his career. Aden is on track to earn his Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) certification, which after attainment will make him BG’s second RCDD professional on staff. The certification will cement his expertise in the design and implementation of telecommunication distribution systems critical to building infrastructure development. Plus, BG’s clients will see that our team is indeed primed to lead the industry and conquer the dynamic world of technology. Learn More >>
