Tampa, Fla.-based BICSI, the association supporting the information transport systems (ITS) industry with information, education, and knowledge assessment, recently released the Information Transport Systems Installation Methods Manual (ITSIMM), fifth edition. This standards-based, vendor-neutral publication is an invaluable resource for cabling installation personnel and those seeking extensive and detailed information on pathways, spaces, associated hardware, and structured cabling, and optical fiber systems within commercial buildings. Reflecting the latest technologies, the ITSIMM provides the fundamental knowledge for anyone working to achieve BICSI’s ITS Installer 1; ITS Installer 2, Copper; ITS Installer 2, Optical Fiber; or ITS Technician registration designations.

“The fifth edition is unique because it provides both an educational and reference document for the purpose of providing a solid foundation for the proper design of current infrastructure and training/education of today’s ITS installation personnel,” says Ray Craig, RCDD, NTS, owner of Craig Consulting Services in Coppell, Texas, and BICSI’s Technical Information and Methods (TI&M) Committee ITSIMM subject matter expert team leader (SMETL).
