Siemon Launches Online Data Centre Learning Portal

Siemon, a globally recognised leader in network cabling solutions, has launched a new online resource dedicated to helping data centre professionals. Delivering educational resources and actionable guidance on a wide range of data centre issues, combines Siemon's extensive data centre cabling knowledge with expert input from representatives of the world's leading network infrastructure companies. Focusing on key data centre infrastructure issues such as energy consumption and cooling, high speed applications for networking and storage, cost-effective and future-proof cabling strategies and more, this new online resource provides an easily navigated portal to a vast library of in-depth data centre information. In addition to an expert panel discussion in which experts from Intel, Cisco, Aquantia and Siemon discuss 10GBASE-T advances and their impact on the data centre environment, visitors can access Siemon's comprehensive Data Centre e-book, instructional videos, webinars, customer case studies and more. Key topics included:

  • 10GBASE-T advancements in the data centre
  • Reducing data centre power consumption
  • Data center cabling choices beyond 10Gb/s
  • Strategies for co-location and cloud for operators and tenants
  • Shielded cabling benefits
  • Data centre cooling best practices

  • Instructional data centre product videos

The portal also offers a new 'Ask Carrie' feature, which allows users to pose their data centre questions directly to Siemon's Carrie Higbie, a globally recognised data centre infrastructure expert. Carrie has been in the industry for nearly 30 years, with extensive background in all aspects of networking and application development - as a consultant, project manager, Fortune 500 data centre executive and college-level educator. Along with her involvement in IEEE, TIA, COMMON, ASHRAE, USGBC, WGBC, ISO, The Uptime Institute and various other standards consortiums, Carrie's experience delivers a uniquely broad perspective to users' data centre challenges.
