Design Service – RCDD

The Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD®) credential is awarded by BICSI to individuals who have demonstrated knowledge in the design, integration, and implementation of telecommunications and data communications transport systems and related infrastructure. The RCDD credential is achieved by passing a comprehensive exam based on BICSI’s world-renowned Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual (TDMM). RCDDs must meet stringent continuing education requirements and continually increase their knowledge through frequent interaction with others in the information transport systems (ITS) community. An RCDD is uniquely positioned to create the detailed design of new systems and/or the integration of a design into an existing system. The RCDD credential is globally recognized within the ITS industry.

Here is how Fidelis RCDDs can help design, install and certify Information Transport Systems and Structured Cable Solutions:

  • RCDDs distinguish themselves from the competition with their globally-recognized credential.
  • RCDDs assist in providing flexible, scalable, future-ready transport systems.
  • RCDDs are required participate in an ongoing education program designed to accommodate new and emerging technologies.
  • RCDDs are requested by end users/architects/general contractors
  • RCDDs add value to your business with properly designed and installed infrastructure assets.
  • RCDDs maximize the infrastructure return on investment (ROI).
  • RCDDs have regular access to a network of ITS professionals, subject matter experts (SMEs) and global resources.
  • RCDDs provide project management services for a proper design, ensuring a more successful infrastructure installation.
  • RCDDs assess their customers’ present and future needs and facilitate other appropriate Information Technology specialties/services.
  • RCDDs coordinate with appropriate building discipline (i.e., electrical and mechanical).
