Network training body BICSI boosted its already considerable regional presence with sterling work over the Gitex period. The not for profit body, was set up to train end users, installers and vendors on the finer points of network implementations, had a booth at the Superior Technologies stand. Kandasamy Ganesan, district chair for BICSI Middle East and Africa says many professionals from the information transport systems (ITS) industry visited the BICSI booth to find out how they can benefit from BICSI’s activities. “The region is going through a massive boom in the construction sector and this brings with it huge growth in the ITS industry. End users and consultants are happy to know that BICSI’s efforts to promote standards, guidelines and best practices will help raise the quality of the systems that are designed and implemented in commercial and residential buildings,” says Ganesan. “The systems integrators and installers are eager to participate in BICSI activities so that they can upgrade their skills to provide quality implementation of information transport systems,” he explains. BICSI is now addressing all professionals in the information transport systems industry. This includes anyone involved in use, design, manufacture or implementation of information transport systems, which transport information from one point to another. The information can be audio, voice, video, data, electronic safety and security, environmental and building controls — anything with a unique internet address. The transport systems include copper cabling, optical fibre cabling, wireless systems and related infrastructure. “About 200 visitors from the ITS industry visited the BICSI booth and asked questions about BICSI membership and our activities. Most were keen to know about the prestigious registration program RCDD (Registered Communications Distribution Designer). They were happy to know that they can now take the necessary training for RCDD and the exam in Dubai,” says Ganesan. The next annual BICSI Middle East & Africa Conference is scheduled to take place in June 2006 in Dubai.
