September 15, 2016. Watertown, CT — Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, today announced that its recent Digital Ceiling deployment utilizing its ConvergeIT Cabling Solutions for Intelligent Buildings has received a Silver Award as part of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2016 Innovators Awards program. Intended to recognize the most-innovative applications of cabling and communications technology products and systems within the structured cabling industry, the Innovator Awards were chosen by a panel of cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators and managers.
Consisting of Siemon's Innovative 24-Port MAX Zone Enclosure and Z-MAX Category 6A Shielded System with patented connectivity that offers superior support for power over Ethernet (PoE), a ConvergeIT Cabling Solution was deployed as part of a Digital Ceiling project at the Alabama Public School System. The project aims to provide the school system with significant capital and operational savings, better user experiences, improved productivity and overall better sustainability using a high performance Category 6A shielded zone cabling infrastructure to reliably support classroom PoE-enabled LED lights outfitted with advanced sensor technology for integration with life safety and security and building automation systems.
"Siemon's contribution to the Digital Ceiling implementation for the Mobile, AL school district exemplifies innovation in several respects. The Digital Ceiling as a whole is an innovative platform, and Siemon's ConvergeIT Cabling Solutions are indeed unequivocally aligned with the platform. The ConvergeIT portfolio includes examples of proven, time-tested products enabling innovative cabling architectures, while simultaneously providing the rock-solid physical infrastructure that supports the newest innovations in connected building systems," says Patrick McLaughlin, Chief Editor of Cabling Installation & Maintenance. "We greatly appreciate Siemon's participation in the 2016 Cabling Innovators Awards program, and believe the Mobile, AL school district's Digital Ceiling implementation serves as an impressive example of what can be accomplished when innovation in technology development meets innovation in system implementation."
