SYSTIMAX Solutions™, the worldwide leader in structured connectivity
solutions, today announced it will be opening its Bangalore Executive
Briefing Center (EBC) next month. According to SYSTIMAX Solutions, the
new EBC in Bangalore will be the company’s third such facility to be
opened in the Asia Pacific region, after Brisbane (Australia), and
Shanghai (China), which was inaugurated last week.
At a media briefing held in Bangalore today, Mr. Randall Crenshaw,
CommScope’s Executive Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise,
told reporters that the opening of the company’s EBC in Bangalore is an
affirmation of the company’s commitment and faith in the potential of
India as the next global economic powerhouse.
SYSTIMAX Solutions’ EBC in Bangalore 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 to 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 are designed for data center connectivity.
Mr. Crenshaw said, “India plays a very key role in our global business
strategy. Globally, it is already one of our largest markets and one of
the fastest growing as well. We strongly believe that India offers us
the right opportunity and platform to consolidate our market leadership
in the Asia Pacific region.”
The Indian technology market is also expected to show impressive growth
rates. According to a recent report by IDC, the India IT market grew at
24% in 2003, providing tremendous opportunities for IT and telecom
vendors and service providers. In 2003, India was ranked as the 21st
highest IT spender and it is expected to move up to 14th position in
Dr. Ispran Kandasamy, Vice President and Managing Director of Asia

Bangalore is an affirmation of our commitment to build a stronger
presence in this market and support the growth of India. With the
opening of our EBC in Bangalore and the expansion of our team in this
market, we are now able to extend our reach and provide even greater
value-add to our customers in India.”
