SYSTIMAX Solutions™, the worldwide leader in structured connectivity solutions and services for organizations, recently announced the installation of its SYSTIMAX® GigaSPEED® X10D UTP cabling solution for Calamos Asset Management Investment Company of Naperville, IL. The network, designed and installed by Advanced Data Technologies, a Prestige SYSTIMAX BusinessPartner, features the SYSTIMAX GigaSPEED X10D cabling solution which will provide connectivity for the company’s data center as well as offer 10 Gigabit network connections to servers and desktops throughout the new building designed to serve as the company’s new global headquarters. The SYSTIMAX LazrSPEED® 300 Solution also will serve as the network’s backbone.

We believe the SYSTIMAX GigaSPEED X10D Solution is the first full UTP solution that fully complies with the latest IEEE 802.3an task force guidelines for 10GBASE-T. 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).

Applications designed to run over Calamos’ completed network include IP video security cameras, data networking, VoIP and video conferencing. Calamos’ new six-story global headquarters features a trading floor. Construction of the 150,000-square-foot headquarters began in November 2003. Calamos expects to relocate to the new building during the summer of 2005.

“Calamos provided us with a unique opportunity to design a state-of-the-art network from the ground up, “ said Dave Kelsch, president of Advanced Data Technologies. “With the demands that financial services applications can put on a network, there was no question that the network’s foundation had to be state-of-the-art to handle them, which made using the GigaSPEED X10D Solution the obvious choice.”

SYSTIMAX Solutions has a long tradition of producing innovative cabling products that have consistently given enterprise managers the peace of mind that comes with installing a leading-edge solution. The GigaSPEED X10D Solution is a natural extension and evolution to existing Category 6/Class E specifications, which SYSTIMAX Solutions was first to launch in 1997 with the GigaSPEED Solution.
