John Caveney, CEO, commented, “The benefit to our employees will be an improved work experience including ‘smart’ lighting, occupancy based temperature management, and improved access control.”

As part of the commitment PANDUIT™ has to the environment and sustainability, the company intends to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification with the new building. The LEED Gold standard will be an independent guarantee that PANDUIT™ will reduce construction pollution and deliver significant energy savings.

PANDUIT™ has secured the services of leading building services and construction firms, including Gensler, Affiliated Engineers, Inc. and Power Construction, to ensure the new corporate headquarters incorporates state of the art design and building technologies to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the facility and increase organisational effectiveness.

The new PANDUIT™ headquarter location is approximately six kilometres (four miles) from its existing headquarters on Ridgeland Avenue in Tinley Park. The planned development includes a 23,000 square metre (250,000 square foot) facility, in a 21 hectare (52 acre) campus environment. Foundation laying of the new corporate headquarters is targeted to begin in Spring 2008 and occupancy of the building in the Summer 2009.

PANDUIT Network Infrastructure Solutions support Next Phase in IP Convergence

Next Generation cabling infrastructure to enable intelligent buildings as industry standard within 5 yearsLondon, UK (5th November, 2007) – PANDUIT, a global supplier of network cabling infrastructure, has today highlighted the intelligent building as the next development opportunity for IP convergence. The company’s next generation Zone Cabling Infrastructure solution makes it possible for companies to accelerate their converged network strategies by allowing powerful building automation systems (BAS) to be supported on the same network infrastructure. The solution opens up new opportunities for companies to reduce the total cost of network ownership and have greater operational control across key business operations.

Brett Swett, business development manager at PANDUIT, commented, ‘The first wave of convergence began when voice communications started moving onto data networks. Businesses are now looking for additional efficiency gains and cost savings through IP convergence. A facility’s security, access control, climate control and lighting systems have all traditionally been run on dedicated, divergent systems. They are now prime contenders for IP convergence.”

“The key to convergence is the integration of individual systems onto a single infrastructure platform that can achieve a high level of interoperability between building systems. In addition to enabling optimisation, convergence of these four systems onto a single IP infrastructure considerably reduces installation costs of the cabling infrastructure. PANDUIT estimates savings of between 60% and 90% in the initial cabling costs alone.”

“Further cost savings are available through ongoing reductions in energy usage. For example, with convergence of systems in place, scheduling a meeting using Microsoft Outlook will communicate to the lighting system to turn light fixtures on and off and adjust the HVAC system based on the number of people scheduled to attend the meeting. Not only does this enhance the work place environment but, according to the US Green Building Council (www.usgbc.org), by intelligently managing when and how devices within a building consume power, total energy used within the facility is reduced by up to 30%.”PANDUIT provides the complete cabling infrastructure requirements for intelligent buildings. Multiple systems can be connected to the IP backbone in distributed zones. Zone cabling provides organisations with a far more logical and flexible infrastructure than traditional cabling topologies.PANDUIT is uniquely able to support current intelligent building vendors with an open-architecture cabling infrastructure. The PanZone product line includes a BAS enclosure that supports connectivity for both voice and data communications and BAS devices. This means that BAS, which have not yet been fully adapted for IP, can be attached through a PanZone enclosure to the IP network.

Brett Swett concluded, “Converging BAS onto the IP network stands on its own merits, however, environmental legislation, limiting power use, is likely to accelerate adoption. We expect that intelligent systems, converged on the IP network, managing the use of a building will become the standard for new-build and refurbishment projects within the next five years.”

PANDUIT to Launch Net-Access server cabinet at Data Centre Dynamics 2007

PANDUIT, a global supplier of network and cabling infrastructure, today announced that the launch of its Net-Access Server Cabinet is to take place at Data Centre Dynamics, London, 12-13 November 2007. PANDUIT will demonstrate the Net-Access Server Cabinet and provide expert guidance on structured cabling within the data centre at its stand in the exhibition area. 

The Net-Access Server Cabinet is complementary to the Net-Access Switch Cabinet, launched earlier in 2007. Both products are designed to manage, protect, and showcase cabling and equipment by providing open-rack accessibility with the aesthetics and security of a cabinet. The innovative cable management design of the Net-Access range organises power and data cables through vertically mounted patch panels and power outlet units, thereby reducing patch cord slack, improving airflow, and enhancing network reliability. 

The scalable thermal management design of the Net-Access Server Cabinet and Switch Cabinet provides a migration path from initial power and thermal requirements to future higher heat densities. As a result, a data centre manager’s investment in PANDUIT technology enables reduced real estate and operational costs over the life of the data centre facility. 

Geraint Davies of NSCGlobal is presenting a PANDUIT sponsored seminar (Hall 2, 11:55 – 12:35 on 13th November) on the Ecological Datacentre Project (EcoDC). The aim of EcoDC, in which PANDUIT is a key partner, is to accelerate the design and delivery of a new generation of energy and cost efficient data centres.

As data centres become the focal point of technology investments and IT processing power, PANDUIT continues to deliver comprehensive solutions that address these requirements. To learn more about PANDUIT visit its stand in the exhibition area, where PANDUIT will be displaying its latest data centre and network solutions.
