high performance IT infrastructure solutions and services
for Data Centers, Intelligent Buildings and Enterprise LANs.

An Evolving Data Center Landscape

The rise of connected technologies and the changing patterns of our day-to-day lives is driving significant change in the data center landscape. Now more than ever you need to have a network infrastructure that:

  1. You can trust, that is secure, adaptable, and resilient
  2. Allows you to evolve quickly to meet changing business requirements
  3. Supports change at speed, rationalizes costs and simplifies business operations
  4. Empowers your teams to work more efficiently and deliver more effective outcomes.

Cabling Solutions for Intelligent Buildings

There’s a revolution going on inside the walls and ceilings of modern buildings. It’s the era of the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart buildings where more devices than ever converge onto a common IT infrastructure, allowing low voltage building systems like voice, data, security, AV, lighting, and HVAC to communicate with each other via Internet Protocol (IP) to provide significant cost savings and sustainability over the life of the facility, while improving overall user experience, wellbeing and productivity.

Enterprise LAN Solutions

To keep pace with the ever-changing needs of today’s enterprise, network technologies must continually adapt.  To the network infrastructure professional, that means an ongoing battle to support exponentially increasing application speeds and bandwidth requirements with the capacity and flexibility to efficiently deliver critical network services to the enterprise.  But even as network technologies advance at breakneck pace, one thing remains constant:  the LAN is the backbone of the enterprise, and the cabling infrastructure is the backbone of the LAN.

Cabling Solutions for Intelligent Buildings

There’s a revolution going on inside the walls and ceilings of modern buildings. It’s the era of the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart buildings where more devices than ever converge onto a common IT infrastructure, allowing low-voltage building systems like voice, data, security, AV, lighting and HVAC to communicate with each other via Internet Protocol (IP) to provide significant cost savings and sustainability over the life of the facility, while improving overall user experience, wellbeing and productivity.

The foundation to converged and integrated building systems is a single unified physical infrastructure that transmits information and delivers power to devices using Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology – everything from IP phones, desktop computers and wireless access points, to surveillance cameras, LED lighting, distributed antenna systems and building automation devices.

ConvergeIT brings together Siemon’s advanced cabling systems and intelligent building program expertise with a team of like-minded innovative building system partners and certified Digital Lighting Partners (DLPs) to help customers around the world build profitable intelligent buildings and a better future by changing the way we build.

End-to-end Z-MAX Category 6A UTP and shielded systems include Category 6A cable, outlets, modular cords, patch panels, trunking cable assemblies, work area solutions and the Z-PLUG™ field terminated plug.

  • Terminates both Cat 6A shielded and UTP, solid and stranded cable in conductor sizes from 22 to 26 gauge – all with a single part number and meeting Siemon’s Z-MAX system warranty
  • Features shorter plug design with rounded edges and ability to eliminate the boot and latch protector makes it ideal for connecting to devices with limited space
  • The user-friendly Z-PLUG termination tool and intuitive hinged lacing module that eliminates cable feed through enables best-in-class termination speed for rapid deployment of IP-based devices.

Industry leading termination

The intuitive design of the Z-MAX® outlet optimizes each step of the termination process to eliminate errors that lead to delays and rework, setting a new benchmark for both UTP and shielded category 6A termination speed and consistency.

  • Zero-Cross termination module accelerates lacing while maintaining pair structure
  • Rapid Z-TOOL-based termination eliminates variability that can degrade performance
  • Easy wiring verification via color-coding on two surfaces
  • UTP and shielded outlets terminate in exactly the same way.

Innovative RJ-45 Design

Siemon’s diagonally oriented IDC contact technology is a unique configuration that varies the alignment of each individual contact within the Z-MAX outlet for distinct performance benefits.

  • Maximizes pair-to-pair separation from adjacent outlets to minimize alien crosstalk
  • Enhances NEXT performance within outlets
  • Fully enclosed IDCs eliminates exposure of uninsulated conductors
