As stated by a Siemon press announcement from last month:
Both Siemon and Netgear have been instrumental in supporting and advancing internet protocol (IP)-based Ethernet technologies such as software-defined video over IP (SDVoE), AV over IP, Power over Ethernet (PoE), and high-throughput Wi-Fi via interoperable, open solutions that simplify digital transformation for a wide range of customers and vertical markets.
With Netgear’s complete line of wireless access points, switches, routers, and AV over IP solutions connecting via high-performance copper and optical fiber cabling systems like those manufactured by Siemon, this partnership will deliver increased customer value and expand opportunities in the ever-evolving market.
In particular, Siemon cited its high-performance, end-to-end Z-MAX Category 6A cabling systems, featuring the company's Z-PLUG interface for fast, easy connections to IP-enabled devices, plus a full line of modular cords, patch panels, plug-and-play assemblies, and work area solutions, as being well-suited for connecting Netgear PoE-enabled Wi-Fi 6 access points, AV over IP switches, and 10GBASE-T switching products.
Through the Siemon-Netgear partnership, the two companies said they will now participate in joint synergistic marketing and sales efforts providing expert knowledge and guidance through a variety of industry educational opportunities, events, and resources.
Bob Lockwood, Siemon's Interconnect Solutions Sales Manager, observed, “With Siemon manufacturing the innovative infrastructure solutions that go hand-in-hand with Netgear networking products to connect people and business around the world, this partnership is a very good fit. Both of our companies share a commitment to advancing IP-based technologies and delivering a total value-added approach to our customers around the world, providing the superior support they need to deploy networks that allow them to adopt emerging digital technologies and grow their business.”
