Post offers power, ports

Smith System, a school furniture manufacturer, has introduced the I~O Post, which features eight power outlets and eight network/phone jacks that can be supplied from a source on the floor or the ceiling through a six-foot cable. The power and data ports encircle the post at seating height, which enables students to position classroom or library furniture around the source for collaboration, and eliminates access restrictions.

The I~O Post is suitable for multiple learning spaces – from libraries and classrooms, to lounges, multimedia production areas, and even hallways.
