Siemon presents extended range of ConvergeIT cabling solutions for intelligent buildings at Cisco Live!

February 2017 - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, successfully participated at Cisco Live! 2017, which took place at the prestigious Messe Berlin exhibition and conference centre from the 20 - 24 February. Cisco Live! is a week-long educational and training event for IT professionals worldwide and provides unprecedented access to the latest trends, developments and solutions for the intelligent building market.

As established enabler partner within Cisco's Digital Building program, Siemon were invited to join other ecosystem members including Philips and Molex to exhibit on the exclusive Digital Building Pavilion. Key focus in Siemon's pod on the pavilion was Siemon's ConvergeIT™ cabling solutions for intelligent buildings, which included live demonstrations of Siemon's new passive ceiling enclosure solution, designed to support flexible, cost effective zone cabling in today's highly automated buildings. The unit installs flush within a 2 x 2 foot drop ceiling tile space and provides an easy-to-manage option for managing copper or fibre connections directly to building devices or equipment outlets.

Visitors to the stand were also able to view Siemon's MAX® 24-port zone unit enclosure, designed to support cost-effective zone cabling in a variety of enterprise workspaces. Supporting both copper and fibre MAX outlets, 24 x Z-MAX® category 6A or TERA® category 7A outlets for horizontal applications, the robust design can easily be mounted in the ceiling, under raised floors or on the wall and houses the connections to support voice, data, wireless access points, LED lighting, security, building automation systems, digital signage and other low-voltage devices that require network connectivity.

More devices than ever are now converging onto the physical IT infrastructure, providing the means to exchange information between integrated building systems and enabling improved workflow automation. IP enabled lighting is revolutionising the lit environment within buildings and delegates were able to experience a live intelligent lighting demonstration for Philips' latest luminaires and Cisco's new Intelligent Building switch technology, which were all connected on the display pod utilising Siemon's shielded cabling solutions.

Commenting on the success of Cisco Live!, Bob Allan, global business development manager for intelligent buildings and strategic alliances at Siemon, concluded, 'Forming a strong IT Infrastructure is key to facilitating a foundation for the IP based networks that are now fundamental to the success of any business. By collaborating closely with Cisco and Philips we are able to provide expert design services and tailored solutions aimed at optimising the infrastructure for best support of long-term networking requirements. Participating at Cisco Live! 2017 offered us a great chance to demonstrate face-to-face how Siemon's ConvergeIT meets these objectives and we are delighted that there was so much interest in this innovative technology.'
