Wednesday, Oct 27, 2010 Siemon, a leading, global manufacturer of IT network cabling and infrastructure systems, today announced that its high speed interconnect products have passed key 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet testing at the Ethernet Alliance’s (EA) recent Higher Speed Ethernet (HSE) subcommittee interoperability plugfest for IEEE Std. 802.3baTM-2010 40 and 100 Gb/s Ethernet.
The recently ratified IEEE 802.3ba Standard specifies 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s Ethernet applications for deployment over optical fibre cabling and high speed interconnect assemblies. Siemon supports the newly ratified 802.3ba Standard with a comprehensive product offering consisting of:
When the world’s leading specialist aerospace insurer, Global Aerospace, needed an infrastructure upgrade it selected Siemon cabling technology and – perhaps surprisingly – installed a category 5e UTP system. With twin drivers of rapid rollout and keen pricing, this well-proven technology was chosen to support Gigabit Ethernet and all members of staff are undoubtedly glad to have a robust system to enable them to serve global airlines, aircraft builders and light aircraft owners, particularly in light of recent aviation challenges.

Siemon, the network cabling infrastructure expert, announces the release of its new DIN Rail mounted patch panel. This 4-port panel snaps securely into any standard 35mm DIN-Rail to provide a quick and flexible patching solution for RJ-45 based copper and optical fibre Industrial Ethernet connections. This allows Ethernet connectivity to be easily mounted wherever DIN Rail is available, including in distribution cabinets, alongside DIN Rail Ethernet switches and with PLCs and other control devices.
Siemon, a globally recognised leader in network cabling solutions, has launched a new online resource centre, dedicated to helping IT networking and data centre professionals get clear facts on shielded network cabling. This includes systems such as category 6A F/UTP and category 7A S/FTP and outlines the benefits of shielded twisted-pair copper cabling.
Siemon’s line of Z-MAX network cabling outlets are now available with an optional spring-loaded hinged door to minimise ingress of dust and other contaminants. This option is available in category 6A shielded, category 6A UTP and category 6 UTP and the new door-equipped outlets share the same extended transmission performance headroom and straightforward fast termination features found in the original Z-MAX outlet.
