For Immediate Release
Siemon Announces Acquisition of the Gigaduct Fiber Containment System
March 7, 2016. Watertown, CT - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, today announced its acquisition of the Gigaduct Fiber Containment System from UK-based Gigacom Ltd. Under this definitive agreement, Siemon will acquire all existing Gigaduct assets, inventory, tooling and customer base.
Gigaduct is a flexible raceway system for routing, managing and protecting fiber optic cables in data centers, colocation centers, service provider hosting and other fiber computing environments. Manufactured from flame-retardant plastics, the Gigaduct System features easy-to-assemble ducts, fittings, bends and tees in various sizes to meet a wide range of fiber deployment needs. The system is designed to maintain bend radius and protect fiber from the most rigorous conditions, while easy-access covers enable fiber installation or removal without disconnecting the entire pathway system.
The transaction will expand Siemon's existing portfolio of WheelHouse™ Advanced Data Center Solutions that includes the company's established line of copper and fiber cable and connectivity systems, high-speed interconnect assemblies, cabinets, cable management, power distribution and comprehensive data center design services that support any size and type of data center, from large super computing environments and colocations, to small-to-mid size enterprise data centers.
"We are excited to expand our data center offering with the Gigaduct Fiber Containment System, which fits well into our WheelHouse with expert data center design services that will now include layout of this fiber ducting system," says Tony Veatch, Director of Product Management for Siemon. "With this acquisition and Siemon's existing global footprint, we will have significant opportunity to expand Gigaduct's reach and better serve our data center customers around the world with a more comprehensive portfolio."
