Superior Essex Teaches About Future-Forward, Sustainable Cable at 2020 BICSI Winter Expo with School of Excellence Booth Experience

February 10, 2020

Superior Essex Communications, the leading manufacturer and supplier of communications cable in North America, is proud to showcase its School of Excellence experience at the 2020 BICSI Winter Expo from February 9 to 13 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, FL.

At the Superior Essex booth (#444), visitors will be able to both see and experience firsthand how future-forward, sustainable cable connects and powers the Sustainable Intelligent Buildings – and more specifically, the classrooms, schools and universities – of tomorrow. The booth will showcase the many capabilities and benefits of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology – as made possible by the company’s family of PowerWise® cabling products – which provide both data and power in a single cable and will completely connect and power the company’s booth.

“As industry-leading innovators in the world of structured cabling, we feel it’s our responsibility to teach our partners, our customers and our industry about the numerous and multifaceted benefits of manufacturing and installing sustainable cable,” said Brian Ensign, Vice President of Marketing, Superior Essex Communications, and past BICSI President. “And our School of Excellence elegantly demonstrates this solution for those working in academic built environments and beyond.”

Attendees will also be able to learn about the company’s numerous, industry-leading sustainability efforts. These include Superior Essex being one of only nine companies in the United States to be certified as truly Zero Waste to Landfill; the only cable manufacturer with certified Red List Free products; and the first cable manufacturer with products that contribute points toward LEED® certification, the WELL Building Standard and the Living Product Challenge.

Superior Essex is partnering with Legrand to further demonstrate a real-world replica of both structured cabling solutions and the cabinetry, racks and accessories that pair with them. As part of their shared booth experience, the Legrand team will be hosting an active termination speed contest, replicating what their installation crews do out in the field every day.

Additionally, professional racecar driver Myatt Snider will be visiting the Superior Essex booth (#444) to interact with fans and sign autographs on February 11 from 4 to 6 p.m. local time. Booth attendees will also have the opportunity to enter a giveaway prize drawing for two tickets to a future NASCAR Xfinity Series race featuring the Superior Essex racecar.
