SYSTIMAX Solutions™, the worldwide leader in structured connectivity
solutions and services for businesses, today welcomed the Hon Ian
Macfarlane MP, Federal Minister for Industry, Tourism and Resources, to
its Brisbane manufacturing center. The Hon Ian Macfarlane presented
three members of the SYSTIMAX Solutions’ development team with awards
that recognize their outstanding contribution to the creation of a
best-in-class cabling solution.
The ceremony took place at a monthly meeting of the Australian
Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (AEEMA) that was
held at the SYSTIMAX Solutions Brisbane manufacturing plant. The
presentation of these awards as part of SYSTIMAX Solutions’ employee
recognition scheme spotlights the company’s participation in Australian
development and world-class innovation.
The Hon Ian Macfarlane addressed guests at the meeting before handing
out the awards to electrical technician Craig Masters and engineers Ross
Beames and Bob Antoijevic. A tour of the Brisbane facilities followed
the formal ceremony.
“We are delighted to be rewarding three key members of our development
team for their outstanding contribution to the Company’s products,” said
Enterprise Executive Vice President and General Manager Randall
Crenshaw. “Through their knowledge and expertise they have assisted in
making the industry-leading SYSTIMAX GigaSPEED® X10D Solution possible.
“Today’s three award winners have been recognised for their
contributions in a highly-specialised area of communications work. By
helping to develop the next generation of electronic cabling, they are
great modern-day examples of the original Australian spirit of
innovation and invention,” said Mr Macfarlane.
SYSTIMAX Solutions believes it is the first vendor to provide a full UTP
solution that fully complies with the latest IEEE 802.3an task force
guidelines for 10GBASE-T. SYSTIMAX Solutions has developed the SYSTIMAX
GigaSPEED X10D Solution to provide a next generation total solution that
supports both the bandwidth needs of today’s enterprises and the needs
of more demanding applications such as high resolution video, grid
computing and Storage Area Network/Network Attached Storage (SAN/NAS).
The 10,000-square meter Brisbane operation employs over 100 people and
uses over 3000 tonnes of Australian copper a year. It has been operating
in Queensland since 1995 when it was originally built to manufacture
cable for AT&T. CommScope acquired the facility from AT&T’s successor,
Avaya Inc., in 2004 as a part of CommScope’s purchase of Avaya’s
Connectivity Solutions business.
