The intelligent network infrastructure at TSRC’s new R&D facility offers continuous connectivity to drive the development of new products and enhance operations.
The research and development facility for TSRC Specialty Materials LLC, a global leader in synthetic rubber and styrenic block copolymer, houses state-of-the-art engineering laboratories with supporting office space. Designed to encourage collaboration and communication for R&D engineers and employees, the 30,150-square-foot building allows TSRC to grow with greater flexibility and adapt to the rapidly changing industrial environment.
TSRC Specialty Materials engaged NCS to deliver a dynamic network infrastructure that allows the company to respond to new challenges and opportunities. The facility features a fully integrated CommScope fiber backbone with 196 point-to-point links to leverage advanced cross-discipline technology, facilities 5G connectivity, and support new types of research and development engagement.
