SYSTIMAX Solutions™, the worldwide leader in structured connectivity
solutions, today announced the opening of its China Executive Briefing
Center (EBC), its second such facility in the Asia Pacific Region. The
facility in Shanghai was officially opened by Mr. Randall Crenshaw,
CommScope’s Executive Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise.
Dr. Ispran Kandasamy, Vice President and Managing Director of Asia
Pacific, SYSTIMAX Solutions and Charles Wong, Managing Director of
greater China, SYSTIMAX Solutions, were also present at the opening
Located in Shanghai’s Xu Hui District, SYSTIMAX Solutions’ latest EBC
will serve as a location for customers, BusinessPartners and media to
learn first-hand about the end-to-end connectivity solutions – copper,
fiber, patching and wireless offerings – available to support an
enterprise organization’s long-term IT infrastructure requirements. It
also provides visitors with the opportunity to take a detailed tour of
the SYSTIMAX Solutions’ facility and have a first-hand look at the
actual processes and production of the company’s cabling solutions.
At the EBC, some of the latest world class technologies and products
that visitors can expect to view include the SYSTIMAX GigaSPEED® X10D
Solution, the 10G UTP cabling solution representing the latest trends in
copper technology; iPatch® System for real time data center
infrastructure management; the high density VisiPatch® System and the
pre-terminated fiber connectivity solutions of InstaPATCH® Plus and G2
System that were designed for data center connectivity.
Mr. Crenshaw said, “China plays a very key role in our global business
strategy. Globally, it is already our second biggest market as well as
our fastest-growing market. We strongly believe that China offers us the
right opportunity and platform to consolidate our market leadership in
the Asia Pacific region.”
According to a recent study by the University of Chicago, China is
expected to be the fourth largest economy by 2010. By 2050, it is
projected that China will overtake the US as the largest economy in the
world. The growth of the Chinese economy is expected to spur greater
investments in infrastructure projects, including a greater need for
technology-related products such as networking and cabling.
Dr. Kandasamy added, “The opening of the SYSTIMAX Solutions Shanghai EBC
is an affirmation of our commitment to build a stronger presence in this
market and support the growth of China. In 2005, we strengthened our
global reach with the opening of our Suzhou broadband manufacturing
plant. Coupled with the opening of our EBC in Shanghai, we are now able
to extend our reach and provide even greater value to our customers in
China and the Asia Pacific region.”
