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
“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
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.
