SYSTIMAX(R) Solutions(TM) from CommScope (NYSE: CTV), the worldwide
leader in structured connectivity solutions, is totally rethinking and
redefining the user experience with its 360-degree product design
philosophy. The first result is its new SYSTIMAX VisiPatch(R) 360
System(TM), which incorporates integrated patching and cable management
to deliver an ergonomically designed and aesthetically pleasing solution.
"SYSTIMAX Solutions' new design philosophy allows us to create solutions
that we believe are revolutionary, and the VisiPatch 360 System is just
the first one to be introduced," said George Brooks, Global Business
Director, Emerging Products, Enterprise Solutions. "This new patching
solution uses enhanced specifications and an improved design to help
boost performance while responding to our customers' need for an
aesthetically pleasing solution that can support complex applications."
The new VisiPatch system is both an RJ-45 alternative rack-mount
patching solution and an optimized wall-mount solution that is designed
to make cable management easier. By projecting cords away from the user
and into the patching field, the VisiPatch 360 System makes the patch
cord plug-end more accessible. This also makes reading the labeling
information easier while facilitating future moves, adds and changes.
The new system reduces cord cluster, patch cord and cable congestion
associated with some RJ-45 systems, and maximizes usable density.
Minimizing cable congestion and increasing usable density can save a
company time, space and money.
The VisiPatch system supports 10Gb/s and 1Gb/s applications with its
superior transmission and performance. Snap-together components enable
the system to be easily installed while its design provides maximum
"We believe our customers value their usage of space and time in
addition to resources and money," Brooks said. "Whether it is by
reducing cable clutter, improving density, making moves, adds and
changes easier to perform, or simply by taking up less space, the
VisiPatch 360 system is designed to help them do just that."
The VisiPatch 360 System is now available globally and more information
