Siemon's ConvergeIT Cabling Solution Perfectly Aligns with Cisco's Digital Building Solution

April 3, 2017. Watertown, CT - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, today reiterates its ongoing commitment and partnership within the Cisco Digital Building Solution ecosystem. In line with Siemon's ConvergeIT Cabling Solutions for intelligent buildings, which provides a unified physical infrastructure for converging low-voltage building systems, the Cisco Digital Building Solution aims to transform buildings to be smart, connected, easy to manage and highly secure.

Siemon was among the first to join Cisco's Digital Ceiling Solution early in 2016. By converging multiple building networks-lighting, heating and cooling, IP video, IoT sensors and much more-through a highly secure and intelligent network platform, the Cisco Digital Building Solution accelerates digital transformation. A key part of the Digital Building includes systems and devices that are powered by network switches using Power over Ethernet (PoE), including PoE-powered LED lights. Siemon's ConvergeIT Cabling Solutions for Intelligent Buildings combines Siemon's proven quality with advanced cabling technology, such as Siemon's copper shielded cables and connectivity that provide superior support of PoE-enabled systems.

In keeping with Siemon's ongoing commitment to Digital Buildings, Siemon is also pleased to announce an upcoming free webcast on "Design and Cost Considerations for Digital Buildings" being broadcast by Cabling Installation & Maintenance on April 6, 2017 at 1 p.m. EST. Presented by experts from Cisco's Digital Building Partners Siemon and Innovative Lighting, as well as Hepta Control Systems, this hour-long webcast will cover what truly makes an intelligent digital building and how it comes together with PoE LED lighting and a unified network infrastructure to drive new experiences and better business outcomes for maximum profitability.
