SYSTIMAX Solutions™, the worldwide leader in structured
connectivity solutions, has provided its enterprise-based SYSTIMAX® GigaSPEED®
X10D cabling and InstaPATCH® Plus Solutions to Interop®
Las Vegas 2006 to connect the show’s InteropNet network.
Exhibitors and show management will use SYSTIMAX Solutions’ copper and
fiber cabling infrastructure to run their exhibitions and Internet
services – an opportunity for SYSTIMAX Solutions to demonstrate the
capabilities of its solutions to enterprise end users.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to show the effectiveness of our
enterprise connectivity solutions than to actually make them the core of
what connects the largest enterprise IT tradeshow in the United States,”
said Luc Adriaenssens, Senior Vice President R&D and Technology,
Enterprise Solutions, CommScope. “This opportunity allows us to
demonstrate the superior quality of our 10Gb/s copper and optical fiber
cabling and patching solutions in an extremely demanding environment
while reinforcing the importance of cabling for future enterprise
The backbone of the Network Operations Center (NOC) for the InteropNet
trade show is connected via the InstaPATCH Plus Solution using SYSTIMAX
Solutions’ laser-optimized multimode and singlemode fiber solutions –
OptiSPEED®, LazrSPEED® and TeraSPEED™.
Connectivity from the NOC to portions of the exhibit floor is provided
by the GigaSPEED X10D Solution.
InteropNet is a key feature of the Interop events. Each time the trade
show is held, Interop selects industry leaders to apply some of their
“best practices” in designing and operating large networks to
demonstrate “best-of-breed” technology. The selected companies may then
promote the InteropNet as a leading example of how to tackle a
wide-scale deployment of the latest technologies. This year’s InteropNet
will offer 10/100/1000BASE-TX connectivity and high-bandwidth access to
the Internet for exhibitors, conference rooms, meeting rooms and
“The InteropNet is a cutting-edge network built in collaboration with
carefully selected vendors who put their products to the test of the
ultimate networking challenge,” said Lenny Heymann, Interop General
Manager. “Our exhibitors and attendees depend on this network to connect
them to the Internet. Participants such as SYSTIMAX Solutions are
valuable contributors to the innovation and expertise of the InteropNet
for the benefit of our attendees.”
“We feel very fortunate to have such high-performance cabling solutions
as part of the InteropNet Network,” said Glenn Evans, Interop’s Lead
Network Engineer. “The solutions themselves give us great flexibility to
design our network in the most efficient manner and get it running
SYSTIMAX Solutions believes its GigaSPEED X10D Solution is the first
end-to-end UTP solution that fully complies with the latest draft IEEE
802.3an task force guidelines for 10GBASE-T as well as the latest
TIA/EIA and ISO/IEC Category 6A/Class EA requirements.
It has been specifically engineered with enhanced cable and connector
performance designed to support emerging 10 Gigabit Ethernet
requirements. The GigaSPEED X10D Solution provides 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, data centers and Storage Area
Network/Network Attached Storage (SAN/NAS).
The InstaPATCH Plus System features a high-density, factory-terminated,
factory-tested, modular fiber connectivity solution that allows
installers to connect system components together simply and quickly.
This modular system approach enables 96 fibers to be connected and ready
for service in the time it takes to make a single fiber connection with
traditional systems. The InstaPATCH Plus System is designed to support
locations, such as data centers, that require high-density, rapid
deployment and high performance. The InstaPATCH Plus System incorporates
SYSTIMAX OptiSPEED multimode, LazrSPEED laser-optimized multimode and
TeraSPEED singlemode fiber technologies to support today's most
demanding applications while allowing easy migration to the next
SYSTIMAX Solutions will be exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2006 at booth
