Experts for Building Infrastructure Cabling

Mega-trend digitalisation: "Where there used to be hardware, today there is only cable," said a researcher at a loss prevention conference of the German Insurance Association GDV (Gesamtverband der Deutschen Versicherungswirtschaft). The efficiency and reliability of building infrastructure cabling (GIV) is now an important basis for business success.

However, the potential of costly IT networks is often held back by incorrectly planned or poorly implemented cabling systems, installed by providers without specialist knowledge. VdS-approved GIV experts offer you comprehensive protection and, above all, optimised solutions for this important technology.

Thanks to special training courses (exclusively in VdS-approved Training Centers), they ensure expertly executed planning and installation of the data centre infrastructure, from automation networking to technical building automation. Well-known companies and organisations have been relying on this quality standard for years and prescribe VdS-approved GIV experts in projects.

Make it easy on yourself:

Minimize risks + expense. Optimize efficiency. With security.


Rely on the VdS recognition - the most important proof of quality in the security market.


  • The experts can clearly prove their competence in theory and practice against Europe's No.1 for corporate security - from equipment to execution.
  • Hundreds of risk analysts in the companies of the GDV (German Insurance Association) find new sources of risk - which is communicated to the VdS-recognized professionals, including loss prevention tips.
  • The experts are always 100% independent - another important assurance.
