Low Voltage Design Services Design and integration of interactive communication infrastructure systems requires industry experts with up-to-the-minute knowledge on cutting edge practices. Registered Communications Distribution Designers (RCDD) are credentialed in the design, integration, and implementation of low voltage communications systems and are required to maintain these designations through continuing education and

For clients, RCDD certificated professionals are invaluable in their ability to design custom state-of-the-art communication systems, while meeting safety and compliance regulations, and planning for future applications. Given today’s rapid technology shifts, engaging specialists in the areas of communication enables owners to implement vendor-neutral, flexible, and scalable Information Transport Systems (ITS) early in the design phase.
