Siemon demonstrates ConvergeIT cabling solutions for intelligent buildings at Cisco Live!

February 2016 - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, recently participated at Cisco Live!, which took place at the prestigious Messe Berlin exhibition and conference centre. Cisco Live! is a week long premier education and training event for IT professionals worldwide, and Siemon took the opportunity to highlight how its innovative solutions are at the forefront of the move towards intelligent buildings and will allow enterprises to maximise the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT).

This is the latest in a number of collaborations between Siemon and Cisco. Siemon has been a Cisco Solution Developer Partner for more than 10 years and in late 2014, Siemon was named one of the 20 Most Promising Cisco Solutions Providers, joining a number of world-class vendors that provide services in partnership with Cisco and demonstrate extensive business process knowledge, as well as in-depth integrated and innovative strategies.

Carl Siemon, the company’s president and CEO, said, ‘We are immensely proud of our close relationship with Cisco and all of our products are 100 per cent compatible with its equipment. Companies chosen as Cisco Solutions Providers are those that stand out at the forefront of tackling the challenges of the networking market.’

Taking centre stage on Siemon’s stand was its pioneering ConvergeITTM solution – a unified intelligent building cabling solution that utilises advanced copper and optical fibre cabling technology to create a structured cabling system that converges IP based building services on a single unified physical infrastructure. Experts from the company were on hand to explain how ConvergeIT creates a working environment that improves productivity by up to 18 per cent, lowers energy usage by 50 per cent and, by having all IP applications running over one low voltage RJ-45 platform, offers capital and operational expenditure savings of up to 75 per cent.

More devices than ever are now converging on the physical infrastructure, providing the means to exchange information between integrated building systems and enabling workflow automation. Visitors were also able to find out how Siemon is helping organisations to deal with the vast quantities of data being accumulated by the IoT and leverage a secure, agile infrastructure to ensure maximum profitability. Furthermore, they could also witness how technologies such as IP enabled lighting is revolutionising the lit environment within buildings.

Commenting on the success of Cisco Live!, Steven Foster, managing director EMEA at Siemon, concluded, ‘Structured cabling is critical to building strong IT infrastructures that form the foundation of the IP based networks that are now vital to the success of any business. By working closely with Cisco, we are able to provide design services and tailored solutions that optimise the infrastructure to best support long-term networking requirements. Participating at Cisco Live! offered us a great opportunity to demonstrate how ConvergeIT meets these objectives and I’m delighted that there was so much interest in this exciting technology set.’
