Siemon targets 10G physical layer network management

January 22, 2008 -- The company's MapIT solution now fully integrates with its Category 6A 10-Gbit/sec screened twisted-pair copper cabling system.

January 22, 2008 -- Siemon has introduced a 10G 6A F/UTP version of its MapIT intelligent infrastructure management solution.

Launched in 2005, the company says its end-to-end MapIT solution was designed to help IT professionals manage their networks, improve documentation, enhance security, improve productivity and reduce downtime. The solution utilizes a combination of software and specially designed, sensor-enabled connecting hardware to track any changes made to the physical layer and provides location information for any IP enabled device connected to the network. The MapIT solution also features network documentation tools, simplifying both regulatory compliance and troubleshooting.

Siemon says its new 10G 6A F/UTP MapIT system meets or exceeds all channel requirements dictated by the IEEE 802.3an standard. The end-to-end 10-Gbit/sec solution consists of a smaller diameter F/UTP cable and screened tool-less MAX modules as well as sensor-enabled MapIT patch panels and screened 10G 6A MC patch cords.

The system is supported by multiple work area faceplates and surface mount options in addition to a suite of Siemon datacenter/telecom room rack and cable management products. The 10G 6A F/UTP MapIT also carries an inclusive 20 year system warranty when installed by a Siemon certified installer.

"The integration of MapIT into a high-performance category 6A screened cabling solution is a natural step," observes Robert Carlson, Siemon's VP of global marketing. "The same growing user base that demands the performance headroom and crosstalk resistance of a screened 10-Gbit/sec cabling solution typically understands the network management efficiencies and security benefits of a robust intelligent patching solution."
