Creating a Safe, Secure and Wireless Campus with PanGen

by Teddi Strassburger on November 18, 2021

AdobeStock_284364895So much change is coming to our campuses and school systems. How can we prepare ourselves to meet these changes and continue to evolve? Let's take a look at some important features students and staff have come to expect on their campuses and how you can meet these needs. 

First, let's look at safety and security. These aren't just "wants" - they're needs. Safety and security are paramount everywhere, and especially in our school systems. Many campuses now feature security cameras to surveil the buildings, parking lots and walkways. Controlled access at entrances and video surveillance limit who can enter buildings and help prevent emergencies. If emergencies do unfortunately occur, then a campus's safety systems can alert local emergency services if an alarm sounds. Together, all of these technologies help keep students and staff safe throughout your campus. 

And then, there's wireless technology. WiFi on a campus enables so many new educational opportunities, creating ways for students to interact and learn that aren't bound by the walls of the classroom. Additionally, students and staff both expect WiFi access throughout the campus, including in student housing, common areas, libraries and outdoor spaces as part of their school experience. Despite WiFi being a wireless technology, all of these use cases actually require more cabling and more bandwidth to the access point. 

With all of these needs in mind, how do we provide for them? A robust network infrastructure can tie all of these technologies together and make them easy to use and monitor. PanGen Structured Cabling Solutions, from Panduit and General Cable, deliver reliable performance for critical systems, including a full offering for mounting and connecting security cameras in the ceiling; extended distance cabling solutions for areas out of reach for standard cable offerings; small diameter patch cords and high-density patching solutions help provide the space you need to connect backup systems and associated equipment in the telecommunications room. For WiFi needs, the PanGen Cat 6A Solution is ideal to provide the necessary bandwidth for wireless access points (WAPs), as well as superior heat dissipation when using PoE to power the WAPs. Prysmian’s GenSPEED® 10 MTPTM Gen 5 Category 6A Cables feature enhanced alien crosstalk protection and EMI immunity, and improved heat dissipation beyond the industry norm. Combined with Panduit’s TG jack, which is rated to 65°C (5°C above the industry standard), PanGen’s Category 6A cabling solution has been designed to support the most extreme wireless installations. Beyond connectivity, many wireless networks require in-ceiling installations, demanding plenum-rated products. In addition, Panduit offers a full suite of products rated to UL 2043, from patch cords to jacks, and surface mount boxes.

Together, PanGen provides the infrastructure you need to provide the technologies your campus requires. Contact your local Accu-Tech representative to learn more, and visit General Cable's page on our website.
