INDUSTRY NEWS: posted 7 February 2018

Excel Networking Solutions has launched the fourth edition of their Excel Encyclopaedia.  The first version of the publication was launched back in September 2010 and received much acclaim for its educational and factual content.

Since Excel first launched 21 years ago, the brand has grown to become an *award-winning provider of structured cabling solutions sold in over 70 countries worldwide. During this time, the Excel brand has continued to embrace new technologies in both their product portfolio and in their communication efforts.  The Excel Encyclopaedia V4 has been aligned with the company’s digital drive, being made available primarily as an electronic publication, featuring hyperlinks, buttons and videos throughout each chapter to link to various areas of the Excel website, social media channels and useful documentation.  

Tracey Calcutt, Marketing Manager, commented, “We are excited to release the latest version of our Excel Encyclopaedia. This fourth edition features up to date content alongside four new chapters which focus on new products and services to the Excel range, such as Bespoke Engraved Labelling and the Excel Residential Solution.”

A prevalent topic in the industry, the CPR section will be continually reviewed and updated with the latest information.  Being a digital version, we will be able to make sure the most relevant materials are available.”

Tracey concluded, “We will also be printing a reduced version of the Encyclopaedia, as well as providing digital versions in French and Spanish.”
