Siemon Kicks Off New Educational Webinar Series

Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, has announced a new webinar series that will cover a broad range of educational topics, from copper and fibre structured cabling and optimised data centre design, to converged networks, intelligent infrastructure management and everything in between. The first of these informative free webinars entitled 'The Advantages of Using Shielded Cabling to Power Remote Network Devices', will take place on 22 May 2013 at 1900 GST. It will be presented by Valerie Maguire, global sales engineer at The Siemon Company.

With more than 100 million PoE-enabled ports purchased annually, a new 4-pair IEEE 802.3 PoE application on the horizon, and advanced standards-based technology ready to deliver up to 100 watts of power - enough to power a television - delivering data centre power over twisted-pair cabling has revolutionised the look and feel of the IT world. Based on an upcoming Siemon white paper, the first educational webinar will take a look at the effects of the rising number and variety of devices supported by PoE and the need for proper selection of network cabling to eliminate the risk of damaging connectors and generating heat within cable bundles that can contribute to failures and downtime. It will include discussion of the advantages that qualified shielded category 6A and category 7A cabling systems provide when deploying remote power technology, as well as an overview of relevant standards' requirements, demonstration of power arcing effects and an update on the emerging IEEE PoE application.

"Our new free webinar series is designed to provide up-to-date information in a flexible and convenient format," says David Wall, global integrated marketing manager at Siemon. "As part of Siemon's commitment to keeping industry professionals and their customers informed, these interactive educational webinars will highlight a variety of the latest technologies, applications and standards for anyone looking to enhance and expand their knowledge."

Starting with the May webinar, each session will highlight a new topic and be led by a knowledgeable industry expert. A live question and answer portion at the end of each webinar will allow participants to interact with the presenter and get the information that they specifically need. All Siemon webinars will be archived for participants to select and review previously recorded sessions at any time. These recordings will also be made available to those that are unable to log in on the day itself.
