Siemon wins Network Cabling Vendor of the Year title at the Network World Middle East Awards 2017

April 2017 - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, is celebrating after winning the hotly contested Network Cabling Vendor of the Year title at the Network World Middle East Awards 2017. The event took place at the prestigious Habtoor Grand Resort and Spa in Dubai, where leading vendors and end users from across the Middle East gathered to celebrate the very best the industry has to offer in the region.

Now in its eighth year, Network World Middle East Awards recognises and celebrates networking excellence. It honours IT companies and business professionals that demonstrate innovative leadership and provide innovations that produce measurable results. This year's winners were chosen via public online voting from a list of finalists selected by an esteemed panel of judges from a selected pool of nominations.

Siemon's entry focused on its pioneering work in the areas of convergence and intelligent buildings - in particular its ConvergeITTM solution. ConvergeIT combines Siemon's proven quality with advanced copper and optical fibre technology to create a structured cabling system that converges critical data, voice, video and low voltage building automation systems (BAS) on to a single unified physical infrastructure, providing significant cost savings and sustainability over the life of a facility. Strategic partnerships such as Siemon's participation within Cisco's Digital Building Solution and alliances with digital lighting partners, as well as informative technical white papers, were also instrumental in earning Siemon a nomination.

In declaring Siemon Network Cabling Vendor of the Year, the judges unanimously recognised the diversity of ConvergeIT. It comprises cabling media to support delivery of all low voltage building automation, audiovisual and light emitting diode (LED) lighting applications, including those supported by power over Ethernet (PoE) and PoE+. The range also includes innovative zone enclosures that house connection points in the ceiling space, on the wall or below an access floor. Cables run from telecommunications rooms to these zone enclosures and then shorter cables from the zone enclosures connect directly to building devices.

Now recognised as a leader in intelligent building infrastructure, Siemon has completed numerous successful deployments of ConvergeIT across the Middle East. Also, as an established Cisco Solutions Provider, Siemon demonstrates extensive business process knowledge, as well as in-depth integrated and innovative strategies, which help address the needs of modern commercial buildings.

'We are incredibly proud to have been named Network Cabling Vendor of the Year at the Network World Middle East Awards 2017, and equally delighted that our dedication to pushing the boundaries of technology has been recognised in this way,' concluded Prem Rodrigues, Siemon's director of sales and marketing for the Middle East, India and the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC). 'Siemon has enjoyed a leading presence in the Middle East for over 20 years. With ConvergeIT we are taking the intelligent building approach a step further by supporting a facility's various low-voltage applications on a single IP-based structured cabling system rather than on separate and often proprietary cabling plants.'
