Be it consumer behaviour, agriculture, energy supply, production or travel - the term "sustainability" has been at the forefront in almost all areas of life for years. There are heated discussions about how the term is to be defined, because it appears in different subject areas and is defined differently in each case.
The German Dictionary of Sustainability dates the first approaches to sustainable thinking and action back to the 17th century, when they were applied to sustainable forestry. Today, the idea of sustainability should be a global model for political, economic and ecological action in order to leave a liveable environment for future generations. The lip service has arrived. Politics and business, but often also everyone, still find it difficult to implement them.
Green IT was a breath of fresh air in the IT world
In the IT industry, the topic of "sustainability" came to the fore through "Green IT". Resource-saving components with low energy consumption and environmentally friendly materials suddenly shaped the picture. Today, energy-saving computers, monitors with low radiation levels and resource-saving printers are the norm in data centers and workplaces around the world.
Office and building cabling also follow the concept of sustainability. More durable, economical materials that offer high data throughput are replacing outdated cable structures. With the FTTACP concept from Rosenberger OSI - an innovative, redundant Ethernet cabling concept - the amount of copper cables required for office or building cabling can be drastically reduced. This also drastically reduces the consumption of raw materials for such an infrastructure and conserves valuable resources.
Modern infrastructure thanks to resource-conserving cables
The FTTACP concept is based on active and passive components that adapt optimally to all the conditions of a building. This solution is therefore ideally suited for the new installation of a network. Rosenberger OSI provides the perfect solution for the expansion and revitalization of networks in existing buildings that offer little scope for change.
