Siemon was presented with a Gold-level award for its "lightweight, ergonomic, and easy-to-use" LightBow Fiber Termination System. Per the company, "LightBow effectively reduces time and costs while enhancing performance and reliability of LC/SC multimode and singlemode fiber terminations. Features of the LightBow Fiber Termination System include: Single-Step Termination - Low-cost patent-pending LightBow tool combines splice activation and crimp into a single robust process; Universal LC/SC Capability - Supports LC and SC multimode and singlemode connector types with no time-consuming changeover; Superior End Face Protection - Connector dust cap remains in place throughout termination, protecting performance-critical connector end face; Eliminates Air Gaps - Bow feature maintains proper pressure of fiber ends during termination to eliminate air gaps."
Siemon was also presented two Silver-level awards for its ConvergeIT Intelligent Building Cabling Solutions and V-Built Custom Preconfigured Solutions. Per the company, "ConvergeIT combines Siemon's proven quality with advanced cabling technology to create a future proof zone cabling system that converges any low voltage IP application onto a single unified physical infrastructure. Siemon's V-Built Custom Preconfigured Solutions are ideal for high performance computing and colocation data centers using modular, repeatable pods or customers seeking consistency across multiple locations. The V-Built cabinets are preloaded with Siemon components, including fiber and copper connectivity, preterminated cable assemblies, PDUs, cable management and accessories. Identified by one customer-specific part number and price and delivered to the site ready to connect the cabling and install active equipment, V-Built Custom Preconfigured Solutions reduce data center deployment time and labor by up to 30%."
