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
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
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.
