When we asked a high school IT customer how her newly-cabled computer lab was working out, she answered “It would be perfect if I could keep the darn kids from stuffing spitballs and gum into my open outlets.” We had a good laugh, but it got us thinking...
Carl, our former CEO, was touring a major customer data center when he saw a technician use a rusty old screwdriver to remove a fiber jumper from a switch. When Carl asked why, the tech’s answer launched a whole new family of Siemon innovations.
When the global pandemic and material and labor shortages disrupted the global supply chain and delayed the ability for data centers to go live, we took the concept of being agile to new heights and locations.
When it is a planned space filled with native plants for pollinators, provides migratory birds and butterflies with habitat, and naturally filters parking lot runoff before it flows into a nearby stream. This puddle at Siemon HQ is just another example of our innovative approach to sustainability.
Siemon was founded in 1903 based on an innovative compound first used for imitation staghorn knife handles - and fostering the next generation of innovators has been a core value ever since. That’s why we’re so proud to support our local Watertown High robotics team.
When it’s revitalized in the spirit of rebirth and community development, supported by ongoing environmental stewardship and leading low-voltage infrastructure solutions to support integrated intelligent building applications that enable substantial savings, sustainability, and enhanced occupant experiences.
Years of Siemon innovation will be unveiled in early 2022, when we launch our new LightVerse optical fiber cabling and connectivity system. LightVerse reimagines disparate, application-specific fiber cabling systems into an integrated, universal platform capable of supporting all of your enterprise fiber cabling needs.
Despite still being the backbone of enterprise IT networks around the world, you could be justified in assuming that there just aren’t any new innovations left for the tried-and-true RJ45 twisted pair copper connector. UltraMAX will shatter those assumptions.
