New Siemon video shows how the latest IIM system increases network density, improves security and reduces power consumption

Watertown, CT USA - Siemon, the network infrastructure experts, have launched a short video to highlight how the company's next-generation Intelligent Infrastructure Management (IIM) system, MapIT G2, addresses today's most critical IT and network concerns: downtime, network security, density and power consumption.

The video serves both as an introduction to IIM systems and also shows the benefits that MapIT G2 can provide in network density and power consumption.

Using a live installation, Siemon's technical sales support manger for IIM systems, Alberto Zucchinali, demonstrates how a combination of smart patch panels and cords, analysers and software delivers enhanced visibility of a network infrastructure. Delivering hierarchical views from cabinet to work area, to floor layouts including type and physical location of every device (e.g. PCs, servers, laptops, printers, etc) connected to the network, MapIT G2 provides IT managers with real-time network documentation and helps to maximise the utilisation of network assets.

Alberto goes on to show how MapIT G2 helps with network security. Any patching changes, removal and adding of devices in the network - whether authorised or unauthorised - will automatically trigger an e-mail alert to the IT manager. This ultimately leads to increased end-point security as well as reduced downtime, as system errors can be located instantaneously and be rectified within a matter of seconds.

Another key advantage demonstrated in the video is density. Compared to competing systems in the market, Siemon's MapIT G2 provides up to 80 per cent higher density. A single MapIT G2 Master Control Panel can monitor up to 2880 patching ports - older systems use up 6U space to do the same. This advantage, in combination with reduced equipment depth, helps to free up critical space in the data centre.

"IIM systems can be viewed as complex", comments Graeme Stoker, marketing manager at Siemon. "We believe that a live demonstration of the system in the form of a short minute video is the best way to fully convey the capabilities and the benefits this solution can bring to an organisation. Seeing is believing", he concludes.
