SYSTIMAX Solutions™, the worldwide leader in structured connectivity solutions, today announced that the Danish railway company DSB is the first company worldwide to manage its 10 Gb/s copper cabling infrastructure using the SYSTIMAX® iPatch® Real Time Infrastructure System. To achieve 10 Gb/s performance with lower network management costs, DSB has combined advanced iPatch technology with the SYSTIMAX GigaSPEED® X10D Solution at its national control center located in Copenhagen.

The iPatch Real Time Infrastructure Management System, helps managers at the control center maintain real time control over the network’s physical layer. It also assists in providing the high levels of security, improved manageability and fast disaster recovery they need to minimize the risk of disruption to rail services.

“The Local Area Networks at our control center are vital - not only for improving operational efficiency but also for ensuring that our rail services run as they should. Connectivity problems are simply not acceptable,” said Per Krog Hemmingsen, Project Manager at DSB. “The iPatch System gives us an accurate, minute-by-minute picture of the physical infrastructure via desktop PCs while helping us react immediately when action is needed.”

Installed by SYSTIMAX Solutions Prestige BusinessPartner, Ementor/Topnordic, the iPatch system’s powerful monitoring and diagnostic tools enable close control and responsive management of both copper and fiber connections. From network distribution frames to the manager’s desk, it is tailored to deliver the information needed for faster fault correction along with efficient network management.

At the same time, the iPatch System reduces the costs of running a network. Electronic orders and on-screen instructions to technicians make moves, adds and changes faster with less risk of errors. These new technical resources allow DSB to manage a much more sophisticated, high performance network than was previously possible.

The Ementor/Topnordic SYSTIMAX Prestige BusinessPartner team under the guidance of Thomas Fog, Business Development Manager, Ementor/Topnordic has been working closely with SYSTIMAX Solutions to specify and design what SYSTIMAX believes is the best solution for DSB.

“DSB, who are the leading railway operator in Denmark, have a cabling infrastructure and specifications which are the foundation for many mission-critical systems supporting its national and international operations,” said Martin Kristensen, Nordic Sales Director, SYSTIMAX Solutions. “The iPatch System secures the information flow that underpins the company’s ability to meet commitments to customers and moves control of vital communications channels to a higher level in the organization.”

The new network infrastructure at DSB’s control center includes more than 1,000 outlets that will support video, audio, CCTV, access control and VoIP as well as data and voice connections. From the iPatch intelligent panels in the distribution frames, 10 Gb/s GigaSPEED X10D copper cables run alongside SYSTIMAX LazrSPEED® multimode fiber connections to 30 floor boxes. Located throughout the center, these boxes each have 20 RJ45-type outlets and two fiber outlets.

The GigaSPEED X10D UTP solution complies with the latest IEEE 802.3an specifications for 10GBASE-T as well as the proposed TIA and ISO/IEC specifications for Category 6A/Class E(A) cabling. It will support 10Gb/s transmission from end-to-end in a 100-meter, four-connector channel, even under adverse conditions.
