What is an “engaged” employee? According to Gallup, “engaged employees are involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their work.” Unfortunately, Gallup’s own polls show the percentage of U.S. workers in 2015 considered engaged in their jobs averaged 32%. The majority (50.8%) of employees were "not engaged," while another 17.2% were "actively disengaged." The numbers have remained largely flat for the past several years.Read More
When it comes to wireless communication technology, it is easy to get confused by all the acronyms. Despite these challenges, however, it’s important to take a closer look at one acronym in particular: C-RAN. Many industry experts envision C-RAN as the future of the wireless network – the precursor to 5G. C-RAN is used to describe two different, but related, architectures: cloud RAN and centralized RAN. The acronym RAN stands for radio access network. This is the equipment that connects to...Read More
Equipment housing for telecommunications and power companies is a critical component of both industries. New housing and emergency maintenance requires a reliable and cost-effective product that can be up-and-running quickly. The chosen product should also be resilient, to save time and money on maintenance and repairs.
This begs the question… which material will provide optimum service in the least amount of time: steel or concrete?Read More
Concrete and steel are the essential building blocks of modern construction projects, with unique strengths and weaknesses attributed to both. When combined, the advantages of one balances the weaknesses of the other, resulting in structures with maximum strength and resiliency.Read More
In the past, human beings built their community structures from a variety of materials: wood and stone, for example, or even mud, with a little bit of straw or dung to make the compound stick. But in the era of skyscrapers and hospitals, shopping malls and universities, engineers rely primarily on concrete and steel to complete their architectural visions.Read More

Data center usage can change quickly. IT infrastructure requirements often grow even faster than the expanding business they support. Because of this, data center designs seldom meet the operational and capacity requirements of their initial design. Data centers must be designed for flexibility and scalability. A robust design is an absolute necessity and should include site location, building selection, floor layout, electrical system design, mechanical design, and modularity. Of these, the electrical system...Read More
The data center industry is growing. As it does, it faces a host of new challenges and changes—from cloud adoption to data sovereignty. Today’s data-savvy companies face technological problems head-on. But the central tasks remain the same: keeping up with continual changes and protecting the equipment that’s necessary to do so.
In this evolutionary cycle, what worked yesterday might not work today—and what works today will soon need updates and modifications.Read More
When looking at an industry’s success, it’s easy to focus on the big picture. On a macro scale, United States manufacturers contributed $2.17 trillion to our home economy last year. That’s incredible and impressive, but simply looking at the big picture and neglecting to dig deeper means you can’t tell why manufacturing in the U.S. remains so successful. By focusing on individual communities, it is possible to see the relationship between towns and manufacturing facilities and understand that...Read More
