CCCA’s Frank Peri will be the speaker at Oct. 17 New England Chapter event

Frank Peri, executive director of the Communications Cable and Connectivity Association (CCCA), will focus on efforts to control the flow of non-compliant and/or counterfeit cables during his presentation at the New England Chapter’s fall education event on Oct. 17 at The Beechwood Hotel in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Peri’s presentation, “Non-Compliant and Counterfeit Communications Cable … A Snapshot of What We’ve Learned,” will hone in on CCCA’s testing and market surveillance findings on compliance of communications copper cabling to National Electrical Code requirements for fire safety.

The presentation will also summarize initiatives by the CCCA to inform and alert the structured cabling industry and U.S. Customs of the extent of the problems such bad cables pose as well as cover results to date from CCCA’s collaboration with independent third-party listing agencies. The audience is encouraged to use and apply this information, within its sphere of influence, to help preserve the integrity of the industry and protect public safety.


Peri has years of experience in the communications cabling industry, including management positions in a multi-national chemical company, as owner of a cabling contractor company and as president of his own consulting firm, Communications Design Corp. He has served on committees for the National Fire Protection Association the Telecommunications Industries Association. In 2007, he joined CCCA, which has focused on policy for cabling infrastructure, and has supported and issued reports on cables that are bad and/or counterfeit. He has been active as a speaker at industry events, frequently making presentations at IWCS.

The event will begin with a networking/social hour at 5:30 pm, followed by Peri’s presentation at 6:30 pm and dinner and networking at 7:30 pm. Download the registration form here. For more details, contact WAI’s Anna Bzowski at tel. 203-453-2777, ext. 126,
