Panduit Corp., a global leader in Unified Physical InfrastructureSM (UPI) Based Solutions, announces participation as a Platinum Sponsor of Cisco Live 2010, which showcases the networking industry’s latest technology innovations to IT and communications professionals.
Panduit UPI-based solutions leverage an integrated physical infrastructure to enable convergence across communication, computing, control, power, and security systems. These end-to-end solutions drive operational and financial advantages across the enterprise, allowing businesses to minimize risk, reduce costs, heighten agility, and support sustainability initiatives.
Panduit (panduit.com) is working with Cisco (ciscolive.com) to develop solutions that help customers manage risk within the physical infrastructure by intelligently converging physical and logical systems. Flexible UPI Based Solutions align the physical layer to centralized, logical computing environments to optimize network performance and achieve greater operational efficiencies. The power of this collaboration currently is resulting in data center deployments that will enable enterprises to deploy highly virtualized, private cloud architectures that maximize space utilization and support power, cooling, and energy efficiency goals.
“We look forward to participation in Cisco Live 2010,” says Vineeth Ram, VP of Global Marketing, Panduit. “At this event, Panduit will showcase the UPI Pavilion, a deployment that integrates Smart Data Centers, Connected Buildings, and Industrial Automation solutions from Panduit and our ecosystem of partners. The UPI Pavilion will also host a Unified Operations Center (UOC) which breaks down traditional operational silos and combines the functionality of Network, Security, and Building Operations Centers into a single facility. This display is a representation of the fully operational UOC deployed at Panduit’s new World Headquarters building, which allows all building data to be shared across the spectrum of applications for improved operational awareness and response.”
As a Platinum Sponsor, Panduit will discuss how decisions made today affect the ability of the enterprise to scale and address tomorrow’s requirements:
• Jeff Paliga, Panduit Director of Global Solutions will present on “Data Center Optimization through Physical and Logical Integration,” addressing challenges associated with data center optimization and offering solutions that incorporate a comprehensive approach to the logical and physical elements that coexist in every data center.
• Panduit is a sponsor and participant of the Cisco Live 2010 IT Executive Symposium, a forum for senior IT leaders to interact with and acquire new ideas and insights from some of the world’s most admired thought leaders from businesses and universities.
• Panduit is a participant in the Cisco Data Center of the Future Pavilion (DCoF), demonstrating how a set of industry leaders can help customers deploy comprehensive data center solutions based on Cisco technologies.
Cisco, Intel, and Panduit will be demonstrating their 10GBASE-T EcoSystem solution, an industry-first that brings together the market leaders in enterprise switching, network adapters, and physical infrastructure to deliver high-performance, cost-effective, and efficient next-generation RJ45-based server connectivity. The EcoSystem is demonstrated through a 10GBASE-T network featuring the Panduit® TX6A™ 10Gig™ Category 6A small diameter UTP cabling system interconnecting Cisco Catalyst switches with Intel Ethernet server adapters.
Through innovative engineering and application expertise, the 10GBASE-T EcoSystem aligns partner efforts to deliver a cost-effective, high-performance, and highly available end-to-end 10 Gigabit Ethernet networking solution that supports unified data and storage networking. This solution supports a wide range of data center architectures and applications (long and short channels, EoR and ToR architectures) and provides reliable, consistent performance across a broad range of virtualized and dedicated operating systems.
