The iPatch solution enables data center managers real-time remote control over the network’s physical infrastructure. This affords increased levels of security, improved manageability, especially when faced with situations such as disaster recovery whilst accommodating reduced running costs with increased productivity.

“Many data center managers are faced with different network challenges than IT managers. For security reasons, many data centers have moved to remote locations, making administration an issue. Risk management is also a major concern and the iPatch System is designed to reduce the burden of technology risk management,” added Morris.

Nominations for these categories must come from a party other than the nominee – companies or i SYSTIMAX Solutions was honored by a panel of judges made up of industry experts for their innovative range of cabling products available throughout the region. Nominations for the iPatch System came from a combination of end-users, distributors, resellers and integrators.

“SYSTIMAX Solutions has a long history of innovation that stretches back to the inception of structured cabling, and we believe it has been the first to market nearly every UTP-based cabling breakthrough. The iPatch Real-Time Infrastructure Management Solution continues this tradition and it is exciting to have our commitment to innovation recognized by one of the region’s most respected networking publications,” concluded Morris.
