Berk-Tek said it would expand on its EVERYTHING IP messaging over the next week with the release of several technical documents and marketing literature, including white papers, test reports, a new scoring system for evaluating cabling performance, and more.

Berk-Tek’s cabling solutions not only exceed industry standards, but more importantly, are uniquely designed to protect growing IP traffic from the stress of converged applications and next generation power over Ethernet (PoE), according to the company.

“We knew that protecting our customers’ growing IP traffic from higher power PoE would be a challenge mainly because of the additional heat,” says Mike McCarty, vice president of information technology and application system labs, Berk-Tek. “The good news is that our technical teams have developed several break-through technologies that have shown outstanding results in the TEK Center’s testing.”

The company said it long ago identified three market drivers that would contribute to EVERYTHING IP: explosive bandwidth growth, an evolution in wireless technology and more PoE.

Berk-Tek said it recognized these market drivers would precipitate the development of significant new technologies, which would ultimately stress network infrastructure like never before. Increasingly users are connecting, controlling and powering billions of new devices through IP networks. Network infrastructure must be designed to maximize simultaneous operation of voice, data, video, and power in real world environments, according to Berk-Tek.
