Paulo Marin Picture

I'm proud to announce that my new technical book about data center infrastructure has just been released. This book is a rich source of information for engineers, technicians, IT managers, network managers and installers interested in the design, installation and assessment of physical infrastructure of data centers. It covers like no other book available in the market place, the electrical systems, cooling, structured cabling, security and fire detection as well as mission-critical sites commissioning. The concepts of availability, redundancy and reliability are presented and discussed in this book. Space planning and other constructive aspects of the site are presented. Technical standardization applied to data centers and references to ABNT NBR, ISO, IEC, ANSI, BICSI, TIA, The Uptime Institute standards among others are cited throughout the texts.

Cabeamento Estruturado (Structured Cabling): The Book - Third Edition

Paulo Marin Picture

This book, published in Portuguese, now in its third edition (released in less than one year after the publication of the first edition) presents, like no other, all aspects related to telecommunications cabling systems for commercial buildings (or structured cabling, as it's known in the technical jargon). The third edition was revised in order to include the new ANSI/TIA-568-C series of standards (C.0, C.1, C.2 e C.3), just released. Thus, this edition brings important changes to design guidelines as well as installation practices for generic cabling in the customer premises. Optical cabling techniques and components have been revisited as well in the book's third edition. Trunking cabling, MPO connectors, fan-out cables and optical polarity are widely discussed in the book's newest edition.

Tech Training

Technical training expertise
A quality technical training should be based on technical information and totally free of brand names and marketing of products. In simple words, it should be a real vendor-free training. In addition, the instructor's credentials should be taken into account as well before hiring a trainer. There is a number of courses and technical training in the marketplace. However, a small portion of them is serious and a few of them is delivered by experienced and qualified instructors. If you're looking for an objective, well-organized trainer and yet the one who really has the expertise to do so, you are in the right place. Learn from the one who writes industry standards - internationally - for telecommunications cabling, data center infrastructure as well as electronic safety and security.
