Siemon Plug and Play Fibre Optic Cabling Passes Key Independent Performance Testing

Leading network infrastructure company, Siemon, announced that it is making data-rich 3D models of its data centre infrastructure, cable management and network cabling products available through the Autodesk Seek web service.

Autodesk Seek (http://bit.ly/tsc592) allows design professionals to search for and access high-quality building product information and design files directly from AutoCAD and the Revit desktop design applications for Building Information Modeling (BIM).

"Our support of the BIM process will help network design, engineering, architectural and construction firms using Autodesk Revit to drive more efficient and cost-effective network projects," said Bob Carlson, VP of Marketing for Siemon "The BIM process allows infrastructure products to be considered in the overall design from the earliest phases. In a data centre, for example, you can take full advantage of innovative products like our VersaPOD cabinet by seeing how it fits within the overall design. Doing this can reduce rework in the field by allowing you to identify potential conflicts and adjust the design before you even begin actual deployment."

"It is increasingly important for design professionals and builders to be able to rely on high quality data as the AEC industry moves to BIM," said Jeff Wright, senior director of Content Solutions for Autodesk. "The addition of Siemon's information-rich part models to the Autodesk Seek web service is one more step in delivering a 'critical mass' of product information to designers, while providing building product manufacturers with an unprecedented platform for online marketing to Autodesk's customer base. "

Autodesk Seek allows design professionals to search specifically for the building product design files they need—in the form of 3D models, 2D drawings, visual images, and part and product specification data. The service includes access to existing content from Autodesk applications and building product manufacturers in a single, unified search experience.
