September 1, 2006 -- The distributor says that IT and facility managers will benefit from the practical re-design and construction techniques taught in the complimentary seminars.

September 1, 2006 -- Electrical and communications products distributor Graybar has developed a complimentary seminar designed to help technology managers, data center managers, facilities managers, and network architects make the most of their data centers.

The half-day seminar, offered in 15 cities from October 2006 through January 2007, will feature technology and products from companies including APC, Panduit, Fluke, Ingersoll Rand, Panasonic, Security Inc., and Square D.

"The seminar covers data center re-design and construction, including the problems with space constraints, heat dissipation, and the need to increase bandwidth," says Karl Griffith, director - enterprise market, at Graybar. "Other topics include security, thermography, asset management (RFID), grounding, and power monitoring. These technologies are critical for optimal data center performance and should be incorporated into all data center redesign projects."

In addition, Graybar says the seminar will cover the standards of data center design, practical tricks of the trade, and how to create a critical-issues checklist. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session with a panel of data center re-design and construction experts. Attendees will also receive a tool kit that includes ROI and cost justification models, standards reference documents, design tools, white papers, and site checklists.
