Established in 1903, Siemon is an industry leader specializing in the design and manufacture of high quality, high performance low voltage infrastructure solutions and services for Data Centers, LANs and Intelligent Buildings. Headquartered in Connecticut, USA, with global sales, technical and logistics expertise spanning over 100 countries, Siemon offers the most comprehensive suite of copper and optical fiber cabling systems, cabinets, racks, cable management, data center power and cooling systems and Intelligent Infrastructure Management solutions. With over 400 patents specific to structured cabling, Siemon Labs invests heavily in R&D and the development of Industry Standards, underlining the company's long-standing commitment to its customers and the industry. Siemon Interconnect Solutions (SIS) is a Siemon business unit comprised of a team of dedicated technical sales professionals supported by Siemon Labs, mechanical, electrical and signal integrity engineers committed to solving industry and customer driven interconnect challenges. We provide custom network infrastructure solutions to: OEM's, Leading Manufacturers, Value-Added Resellers and System Integrators.

Robust and flexible technology: ConvergeIT features Siemon's entire family of 20-year warranty-backed cabling solutions and eliminates the need for proprietary cabling and connectivity. Category 5e, 6, and 6A UTP and F/UTP and category 7A S/FTP media support delivery of all low-voltage building automation, A/V and LED lighing applications, including those supported by PoE (Power over Ethernet) and PoE Plus. Multimode and singlemode optical fiber solutions may be deployed as part of a ConvergeIT solution if prior consideration is given to the need to power low-voltage IP PoE-enabled devices.

True network management: ConvergeIT supports low-voltage building automation and A/V systems being linked to the data network resulting in simplified infrastructure management and reduced complexity. This also provides a migration path for IP-enabled devices that can be monitored, accessed, and managed by IT administrators. Device management facilitates initiatives to minimize energy waste (e.g. automatic lighting and HVAC control) and capabilities that can enhance building security and emergency response time (e.g. motion and audio detection).

Asset control: Converging multiple applications over one integrated cabling system enables real-time control of assets and information; a critical component of regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), the Real ID Act, the Homeland Security Presidential Directive, ISO 17799 code of information security, and the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) for information technology management.

Rapid deployment and reduced labor costs: It is a fact that significant costs and time are associated with using multiple contractors to deploy separate low-voltage cable runs. ConvergeIT reduces labor costs, construction time, and installation expenses because one structured cabling provider installs and services all low-voltage, voice and data and IP PoE-enabled applications including Cisco's Smart+Connected Lighting. MAC (moves, adds, and changes) work is significantly simplified and the redundancy associated with separate pathways is eliminated. In addition, the low-voltage cabling, which was traditionally left unmanaged after the installation, is now part of the administered network infrastructure.

Reduced number of unused pairs: Since many low-voltage applications operate over just one (e.g. CATV or CCTV) or two (e.g. a PoE-enabled camera) pairs, there is a potential for substantial waste in the form of unused pairs when converged networks are deployed. ConvergeIT eliminates this waste by supporting cable sharing; a strategy whereby multiple low-speed, high-density applications are deployed over one TERA category 7A/class FA channel. This standards-approved strategy can free-up valuable pathway space, provide cost savings, and may be leveraged along with other practices that reduce material and energy waste for green performance credits.

Supports green building initiatives: Strategies that decrease labor and deployment times, optimize material utilization, and maximize energy efficiency are key factors in designing sustainable buildings and obtaining "green" building certification, The Green Building Technology Alliance (GBTA), established by BICSI to develop innovation technology credits for the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification system, is in the process of developing two to three innovation technology credits specifically related to structured cabling infrastructure. The current proposal is one credit for physical layer technology and another one or two credits for audiovisual deployment.

 Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, is pleased to announce that it was recently named one of the 20 Most Promising Cisco Solutions Providers for 2014. Selected by a distinguished panel of CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, and analysts that includes the CIO Review editorial board, Siemon joins the ranks of vendors providing solutions and services in partnership with Cisco that have showcased extensive business process knowledge and in-depth integrated and innovative strategies combined with talent base across multiple locations.

As a frontrunner in providing hardware, software and service offerings for today's IP-based networks, Cisco has driven much of the technological advancements that are helping to create powerful connections and easy access to information. While a myriad of companies partner with Cisco to bring networking advantage to their customers, the companies chosen as most promising Cisco Solutions Providers are those that stand out at the forefront of tackling the challenges of the networking market.

"Structured cabling is critical to building strong IT infrastructures that form the foundation of the IP-based networks vital to the success of any business," says Carl Siemon, the company's president and CEO. "As a Cisco Technology Partner, all of our products are 100 percent compatible with Cisco equipment. We work closely with our customers early in the project lifecycle to provide value-added design services and tailored solutions that optimize the infrastructure to best support their long-term networking requirements."

As a Cisco Technology Partner, Siemon offers a new series of high-speed interconnect cable assemblies specifically designed to be compatible with Cisco switches and servers. Another example is Siemon's SidePOD™ and Baffle solutions for use with Siemon's innovative VersaPOD® networking cabinets. This unique accessory is specifically designed to create the necessary clearance for properly routing airflow to and from Cisco's side-vented Nexus switches.

Additionally, Siemon's best-in-class delivery system consists of a global network of Siemon Certified Installers who are trained to design, install and administer Siemon cabling systems anywhere in the world, while ensuring standards compliance and providing an extended 20-year warranty that covers products, performance and application assurance. Not only has Siemon's combination of high-performance solutions and value-added support, along with ongoing R&D investment and state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities, resulted in numerous recognitions such as one of the Most Promising Cisco Solutions Providers, it has also earned the company an impressive customer list spanning finance, healthcare, government and education markets and including more than 200 organizations from Fortune's Global 500.
