A report of International Copper Association (ICA), commissioned by Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA), put forth that global use of copper in Smart Home applications is expected to touch 1.5 million tonnes per annum by 2030. Copper System is used for Smart Home hubs, switches, routers, wiring and lithium-ion batteries.

While Fibre-installations still being more expensive than copper-installations, copper certainly remains the backbone of the networks in industrial and manufacturing environments, because of the accuracy and reliability in speed and bandwidth of the networks, where the environment must be considered or where there are factory-settings. A copper cabling system transmits signals with unparalleled reliability and efficiency. Copper cables like Cat6 Cables are very effective at reducing errors and signal-to-noise ratios, that can compromise critical infrastructure. Copper Cables are also effective for low-speed Data Centres. Copper-cabling is still prevalent for industrial Ethernet-deployments, with over 77% market-share. Copper System achieves high-speed internet-speed without the need to complement or alter the communication or power-infrastructure. Therefore, while Smart Homes are still in the midst of reaching a definite shape, with more and more intelligent and wired structures and with enhanced system-reliability and security, Copper System remains integral for the growing new-age requirements. As Smart Homes or Buildings are going to be exceedingly efficient and eco-sensitive, copper is once more going to play a pivotal role as a key element for decarbonisation of these next-gen homes, due to its inherent properties.

Polycab’s products are used in wiring and electronic components in Smart Home hubs, switches, routers, batteries and other various uses. Polycab designs, supplies, installs and tests Copper Cabling System in the end-to-end integration and commissioning of Copper System Networks for Smart Homes.
