Maximize Your Uptime with Siemon

Businesses today rely more on their networks than ever before. Bandwidth demanding applications like Voice over IP (VoIP) and streaming video and the convergence of these applications onto what was traditionally a data network, has placed unprecedented demands on the network infrastructure. Now, as organisations look to transact ever more business electronically, the network infrastructure - the structured cabling system - is becoming a central and integral element in business success.

Siemon, a world leader in network cabling, has created an informative web-based seminar (webinar) - Maximizing Uptime and Protecting Your ROI - that covers the important role the network cabling infrastructure plays in today's advanced enterprises. The webinar is presented by Carrie Higbie, Siemon's Market Manager for advanced network applications, who guides viewers through a series of important topics that network managers need to know in order keep their network operating at peak efficiency now and in the future. The main topics of the webinar are:

  • What is the true cost of network downtime
  • What causes slow network response times
  • How can you audit your infrastructure to make sure it is operating properly
  • How you can protect your electronics investments
  • Tips on how to maximize network uptime
  • What emerging standards like 10G Base-T mean to your organization
  • How you can tell if your network is ready for convergence

"Whether your business is finance, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, education or any one of a host of others, one thing is for certain - bandwidth hungry applications are emerging at a rapid pace," said Robert C. Carlson, Vice President of Global Marketing for Siemon.

"Siemon's webinar is an educational resource that will teach you how to plan for next generation networking. This information, combined with the solutions we build for our customers, can help put your business on the path to success."
