May 1, 2007 -- Anixter announced that it will be hosting its annual National Seminar Series for the 8th consecutive year. The distributor's IP Connected Enterprise seminars will be conducted in 16 cities across the US between May and November of 2007.
According to a press release, in the seminars, a number of Anixter's top technical experts will address the challenges and solutions associated with the increasing stress put on network infrastructures as multiple building systems are converged onto a single IP network.
Attendees are invited to a day of exploring emerging trends within the industry, new technologies, and the issues behind the worldwide movement towards the IP connected enterprise.
The seminars will educate attendees on the concept of developing a "utility grade" building infrastructure, designed and installed to enable Ethernet connectivity of all possible building systems to a single IP network. In addition, the distributor's featured manufacturers will be on hand to display their latest products and technologies in a mini tradeshow setting.
The seminars are open to anyone interested in learning about the latest products, technologies, and standards, and the many issues concerning the design, build-out and maintenance of a modern building infrastructure, including the need for a robust and reliable cabling infrastructure. IT managers, facility directors, IS/LAN managers, architects, consultants, engineers, security managers, directors and integrators are invited to participate.
