Anixter bringing data center education on the road

Attendees will hear from the TIA, IEEE, EPA and other organizations.

Anixter has announced the schedule for its 2010 seminar series entitled Solving the Data Center Optimization Puzzle: Infrastructure, Security, and Sustainability. Now in its tenth year, the traveling educational event addresses standards and technologies in the data center, security, telecommunications, and sustainability fields.

The TIA and IEEE will also be represented on a live panel, along with speakers from IBM and Security Technology Executive magazine.
