Five Green IT Award Nominations For Siemon

Infrastructure expert Siemon is celebrating a flush of nominations in the Green IT Awards, due to be announced at a ceremony on 19 April 2012 at the world famous London Zoo. The five categories that Siemon is shortlisted to win include Manufacturer of the Year, Sustainable Design Project of the Year, Team of the Year, Product of the Year and the Minister for Energy Award.

Now in its third year, the Green IT Awards aims to showcase and reward the technology, tools and organisations that are judged to have made a significant contribution to improving the IT industry's environmental performance. Many of the awards are decided by public vote, with others considered by an expert judging panel. Elements scrutinised include the quality and originality of the submission, plus evidence of positive, sustainable impact and environmental, social and economic benefits.

In the classes of Sustainable Design Project of the Year and Team of the Year, Siemon has been recognised for its work with the National Composites Centre. This research hub is home to a variety of organisations developing new technologies for composites products and is one of the UK's most energy efficient research establishments, opened last year in response to the Government's Composites Strategy.

Constructed to meet a 'BREEAM Excellent' environmental rating, the National Composites Centre (NCC) is built to a best in class standard, using the latest energy efficient systems and renewable technologies. This includes a converged network that carries all data for the facility whilst delivering VoIP capability and providing the backbone of a complete building management system (BMS). NCC selected a Siemon Z-MAX® category 6A shielded structured cabling system to provide the necessary performance to manage the high volume of data transfer required by the centre's research programmes. This shielded system provides the highest margins on all TIA and ISO performance requirements for category 6A/class EA, including critical alien crosstalk parameters, combining superb performance and unparalleled usability with security and robust noise immunity.

Peter Chivers, chief executive of the National Composites Centre concludes, "The UK now has a research centre that leads the way in its field and will offer huge benefits for industry and consumers. Our communications infrastructure is the lifeblood of the NCC and Siemon's technology, help and advice played a vital part in helping us to achieve our environmental objectives."
