Superior Essex, AEM, MHT Lighting and VoltServer to Host Masterclass on Sustainable Technology Innovations and Solutions for Smart Buildings at BICSI Fall 2022

Atlanta, GA – Today’s top-of-mind challenges are being resolved by ever-impressive innovations, but network designers demand future-forward solutions. Moreover, they need sustainable advances that reduce deployment and operational costs in smart buildings and “smart” technology applications. Presenters from Superior Essex Communications, AEM Test and Measurement, MHT Lighting and VoltServer will explore these challenges through a masterclass on Monday, Sept. 26, 1-4:30 p.m., at the 2022 BICSI Fall Conference in Las Vegas.

The masterclass will discuss the latest trends in smart buildings, the drivers behind the need for sustainability in technology and the latest sustainable technology innovations and solutions that accomplish both. Representatives from each collaborating company will share their experiences with smart building technologies as innovators within the ICT industry. The masterclass provides three BICSI continuing education credits.


  • Paul Weintraub, Head of International Business, Superior Essex Communications
  • Annie Bevan, Head of Global Sustainability, Superior Essex Communications
  • Luke Getto, Director of Product Management and Marketing, VoltServer
  • Steve Cowles, Manager of Product and Customer Care, AEM Test and Measurement
  • Akram “AK” Khalis, Chief Technology Officer, MHT Lighting

“The BICSI Fall Conference is the perfect platform for us to present this masterclass on sustainable technology innovations for the ICT industry,” said Paul Weintraub, head of international business for Superior Essex Communications. “We’re pleased to partner with innovating companies committed to solving real-world problems by developing the sustainable technologies of tomorrow, today.”

This masterclass continues a partnership among Superior Essex, AEM and MHT. The three companies presented a seminar series together in the Middle East and North Africa earlier this year, tackling tough challenges in the ICT community in that region. The companies are honored to have VoltServer, the inventors of Digital Electricity™, join them to present this masterclass to the BICSI audience.
