We at Accu-Tech know that your time is money. Tracking power usage for rack-mounted equipment shouldn’t be a difficult or time-consuming task, even if you aren't using web-based monitoring software. For some IT managers, it may be more convenient to manage power directly on the power distribution unit (PDU) itself. 

Check out CPI’s eConnect® PDUs. These tools provide detailed power data and control through a unique LCD display that’s easy to read, regardless of whether the PDU cord exits at the top or bottom of the cabinet.

Explore how to meet the unique security, safety and communication challenges of airports with Bosch Security.

The many roles played by today’s airports pose considerable security challenges. Airports must therefore meet incredibly demanding criteria with regard to security, safety, communications and building automation. A few of the most critical challenges include:

  • Protecting passengers and employees
  • Preventing terrorism in its many possible forms - bomb threats, suicide attacks, sabotage and hijacking of aircraft
  • Dealing with fire and explosions
  • Managing a wide variety of different access authorizations


Managing these challenges is a daunting task, as many different areas need to be monitored: from perimeters, parking structures and terminals to other passenger facilities, aprons, airfields, shops, and restaurants. Solutions from Bosch Security Systems help airports to master these security, safety and communication challenges.

In late 2011, the installation of North America’s largest-ever Bosch Praesideo system was completed at Vancouver International Airport, in Canada’s westernmost province of British Columbia. This system aided the Vancouver Airport Authority in meeting its ongoing objective to provide ever-improving service to its customers while also reducing its operating and maintenance costs. Below you can find an overview of this project, the system design, some technical aspects of the solution, and the resulting customer benefits, both to Vancouver International Airport and, most importantly, to airline passengers.

Berk-Tek's Considerations for Data Center Planning - Upcoming Webinar

Posted by Paige Looney

Aug 18, 2015 10:00:00 AM

Berk-Tek knows that there is no such thing as a “One Size Fits All” data center. Depending on a variety of factors and components, including the size of the organization and its business needs, the requirements of the data center can vary dramatically from one company to the next. Regardless if you're planning a new data center or an addition to an existing data center, there are certain important considerations that need to be taken into account.

For most organizations in the IT world, the data center is a big, if not the biggest, investment. If a company is going to invest millions of dollars in something, it must look at the details and the big picture so that the solution addresses both current and future needs. Whether that means 5 years or 20, the network infrastructure must be designed to accommodate not only today’s technologies, but also those that have not yet been implemented. One way to do this is to look at data rates that are two to three steps ahead of the current standard. That’s why it is critical – especially for those designing and maintaining data centers – to stay abreast of the latest and emerging technologies as well as standards compliance.

Berk-Tek understands that the network infrastructure decisions made today can have lasting effects for decades to come. Berk-Tek and Accu-Tech are committed to keeping our customers up-to-date on the latest industry developments and advancements. Join Berk-Tek on August 26 to learn about the five things you need to consider when upgrading your data center. With the help of Berk-Tek and The TEK Center, you can be sure that your next upgrade will perform beyond expectation. Click here to Register

$5 Billion in E-Rate Funding for Wi-Fi in Schools

Posted by Paige Looney

Aug 17, 2015 9:00:00 AM

The FCC is taking steps to modernize E-rate for Wi-Fi in schools. Recognizing that students and teachers are more dependent than ever on personal mobile devices, the FCC is moving to promote and fund ubiquitous Wi-Fi in schools and libraries. Teachers and students need a robust Wi-Fi network that will deliver all of the multimedia instruction and programming required for the future.

Until 2015, schools did not have E-rate funding for building robust Wi-Fi networks. The result was low-budget, poorly-designed, and poorly-implemented Wi-Fi networks in many schools. This left the teachers and students with a poor experience and missed learning opportunities. With the E-rate funding and emphasis on designing and installing robust, mission-critical networks, schools have the opportunity to fully engage their students with mobile technologies. Here are some of the details for WiFi E-rate funding.
