Siemon sponsors Avaya Technology Forum

April 2016 - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, sponsored the Avaya Technology Forum held at the InterContinental Festival City Hotel in Dubai on 15-17 March 2016 and showcased its data centre and intelligent building solutions. 600 industry professionals attended the event, coming from the Middle East, Africa and Asia to hear from technology subject matter experts and participate in the interactive breakout sessions. They were invited to 'evolve to a digital enterprise' and to learn about the latest technical strategy and transformational solutions designed to change business outcomes.

The audience at the forum comprised network and infrastructure technology leaders, architects, engineers, managers and consultants, plus mobility and unified communications technology professionals and the aim, according to Avaya, was for the event to dive deeper and wider into technical challenges faced by the participant's businesses. An important part of this discussion was held in the 'Smart Network' area, where Siemon demonstrated Avaya fabric solutions in its V800 data centre cabinet, with features including vertical cable management and zero-U patching, for optimisation of space and cooling.

Siemon featured some of its WheelHouse™ advanced data centre solutions including its high density fibre enclosure 'LightStack' and associated plug and play fibre, plus LC BladePatch connectivity for high density patching. Shielded copper cabling solutions shown included category 6A Z-MAX and category 7A TERA. Automated Infrastructure Management was also offered, with Siemon's MapIT solution being part of the display. Themes discussed included infrastructure designs that deliver maximum density in the data centre and how Siemon's ConvergeIT® cabling solutions for intelligent buildings can create a networking advantage. Siemon showed how a single unified structured cabling system can be a critical building asset; one that reduces costs, simplifies application deployment, enhances the workplace experience, and maximizes the potential to qualify for all physical layer and audiovisual innovation technology credits.

Explaining Siemon's role in this educational industry event, Prem Rodrigues, sales and marketing director for India and Middle East at Siemon, commented "Whilst future-focused and at the cutting edge of technical advantage, the solutions introduced at the Avaya ATF in Dubai are designed to be relevant for deployment in today's enterprise and data centre. We are committed to sharing expertise and working in partnership with Avaya to show what is possible and to answer the questions important to those networking professionals that are leading the industry."

Smart solutions, digital technologies, executive keynotes and custom workshops were the pillars of the event. Siemon will also sponsor the remaining forum in this worldwide series of four, to be held in Dublin, Ireland on 10-13 May 2016.
