At the BICSI Fall Conference 2022 (Sep. 25-29), electrical and digital building infrastructure specialist Legrand announced that its first-of-its-kind Infinium acclAIM cabling system was recognized by the 2022 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Cabling Innovators Awards as a Platinum honoree, the annual awards program's highest level of recognition.
According to Legrand, the Infinium acclAIM platform "redefines cable connectivity by replacing pre-terminated cassette-based connectors with direct connections that enable significantly simplified installation, the lowest optical loss, and lower costs."
As further contended by the manufacturer:
"The solution simplifies and redefines fiber cable connectivity with 40% faster installations that take 60% less time to undo, making it easy to evolve cabling configurations.
The inspired simplicity of its design maximizes optical headroom and improves density by enabling acclAIM connectors to mate directly to an array of 2-fiber duplex MDC patch cords through the acclAIM Conversion Adapter Panel.
This simple, yet robust design makes acclAIM a sustainable building asset that will transform mission-critical spaces for decades to come."
"To put it simply, our Infinium acclAIM cabling solution took an antiquated, inefficient and messy way of connecting or mating cables within the data center, and reimagined that connection to be simpler, smaller, more intuitive, better performing and easier to use," explained Kristen Poulos, VP/GM at Legrand Data Infrastructure. "
Poulos continued, "This reimagining has had profound impacts on our customers' efficiencies and bottom line. Infinium acclAIM is now being used by some of the most innovative and progressive data center organizations in the world. We're reducing costs as well as improving efficiency and performance. Our Infinium acclAIM product is a true market disruptor, and we are honored to be recognized by Cabling Installation & Maintenance."
The Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards are judged by an esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the cabling community.
"On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate Legrand on its Platinum level honoree status," concluded Cabling Installation & Maintenance chief editor, Patrick McLaughlin. "This competitive program allows Cabling Installation & Maintenance to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products, projects, technologies, and programs impacting the industry."
