    While the intelligent building concept has been around for well over a decade, new advancements in sensor and networking technologies have paved the way for the Internet of Things (IoT) to become a reality. More low-voltage devices than ever are now converging on a single unified physical infrastructure, providing the means to collect and exchange information between integrated building systems and combine power and control for significant capital and operational savings, improved sustainability and an overall better experience for all building users. This webinar will take a look at the evolution and benefits of intelligent buildings, the impact of IoT, and how a building’s cabling infrastructure can be leveraged to ensure maximum profitability.
  • Getting Smart, Getting Rugged: Extending LANs into Harsh Environments Getting Smart, Getting Rugged: Extending LANs into Harsh Environments Dave Valentukonis Recorded: Oct 22 2015 38 mins
    Virtually everything we do now on a daily basis touches the network—whether it’s buying a snack, sending an email or taking a ride at an amusement park. The proliferation of digital information, wireless handheld devices and Ethernet into every facet of our lives means that LANs are extending into more places than ever before – and some of these places are considered harsh environments that require ruggedized network cabling and connectivity capable of withstanding more severe conditions.

    This webinar takes a look at some key standards and considerations for deploying network cabling and connectivity in harsher outside environments and highlights Siemon's Ruggedized network solutions and some real-life application scenarios to help designers and installers identify environments that may require ruggedized network components.
  • Reducing Data Center Costs by 46% While Cutting Deployment Time in Half Reducing Data Center Costs by 46% While Cutting Deployment Time in Half Carrie Higbie Recorded: Oct 6 2015 33 mins
    Learn how a combination of innovative data center cabinets and unique deployment methods significantly reduces CapEX and OpEX without sacrificing performance and scalability. You'll discover how a cabinet's shared Zero-U space supports vertical growth, offers an overall cost savings for cabinets, PDUs and patching of at least 46% and reduces stranded power outlets by 75%. You'll also learn how preconfigured data center cabinet solutions can reduce the labor and time required to go live by as much as 50% while easing scalability and optimizing performance.

  • Data Center Storage Evolution: SAN, DAS, NAS,  iSCSI and Fibre Channel FCoE Data Center Storage Evolution: SAN, DAS, NAS, iSCSI and Fibre Channel FCoE Carrie Higbie RCDD/NTS, CDCP, CDCS - Global Director Data Center Solutions and Services Recorded: Oct 2 2014 40 mins
    It’s important for data center managers and IT Pros to understand the variety of storage architectures available, allowing them to make an informed choice depending on their specific needs.

    Data Center Storage Evolution covers trends, technologies and standards surrounding today’s storage area networks (SANs).

    Data is growing at explosive rates in today’s business and has become the most valuable corporate asset, challenging today’s data center managers to effectively store and protect data while enabling fast, secure access.

    Big data and ever increasing data stores are increasing demands, giving way to new technologies and SAN designs using switched IP networks that provide increasing levels of manageability, interoperability and cost effectiveness.

    As 10 Gigabit Ethernet becomes increasingly popular for providing an open, standards-based data center infrastructure to support multiple technologies, leveraging IP and Ethernet for storage is a potential progression that is driving evolving storage technologies.
  • IEEE 802.11ac 5 GHz Wireless Update and Structured Cabling Implications IEEE 802.11ac 5 GHz Wireless Update and Structured Cabling Implications Valerie Maguire BSEE, Director of Standards & Technology at Siemon Recorded: Sep 16 2014 41 mins
    Killer app alert! The newly published IEEE 802.11ac Very High Throughput 5 GHz Wireless Standard has far reaching implications with respect to cabling infrastructure design. Users can reasonably expect their current wireless speeds to more than double by switching to 802.11ac gear that is available today. 256 QAM modulation, 160 MHz channel bandwidth, and a maximum of eight spatial streams could theoretically deliver 6.93 Gb/s wireless data rates in the future! For the first time, the specification of high performance cabling supporting access layer switches and uplink connections is critical to achieving multi-Gigabit throughout and fully supporting the capacity of next generation wireless access points.


    This engaging 30-minute webinar will answer all of your questions concerning emerging 802.11ac technology trends, products, and capabilities. Applicable standards terminology and updates will be clearly presented using non-technical language.

  • Optimizing Design for Modern Data Centers Optimizing Design for Modern Data Centers Carrie Higbie RCDD/NTS, CDCP, CDCS - Global Director Data Center Solutions and Services Recorded: Aug 4 2014 50 mins
    This webinar covers the latest data center design configurations and their impact on manageability, cooling, scalability and total cost of ownership. The webinar is titled, "Optimizing Design for Modern Data Centers: Considerations for Choosing Top-of-Rack in Today’s Fat-Tree Switch Fabrics" and will be presented by Carrie Higbie, Siemon’s Global Director of Data Center Solutions and Services.

    Fat-tree switch fabrics, also referred to as leaf and spine, are one of the most common switch fabrics being deployed in modern data centers. In a fat-tree switch fabric, data center managers are faced with multiple configuration options regarding application, cabling and whether to place switches in traditional centralized distribution areas, middle of row (MoR) positions or end of row (EoR) positions that use structured cabling to connect to servers, or in a top of rack (ToR) position using point-to-point cabling within the cabinet for connecting to the servers. This warrants taking a closer look at each configuration and its overall impact on the data center.
  • The Need for Low-Loss Multifiber Connectivity In Today's Data Center The Need for Low-Loss Multifiber Connectivity In Today's Data Center Carrie Higbie RCDD/NTS, CDCP, CDCS - Global Director Data Center Solutions and Services Recorded: May 15 2014 53 mins
    Optical insertion loss budgets are now one of the top concerns among data center managers, especially in today’s large virtualized server environments with new switch fabric architectures and higher speeds that result in longer-distance 40 and 100 gigabit backbone channels using MPO connectivity for networking and storage area networks (SANs).

    With more stringent insertion loss requirements, standard loss MPO connectors significantly limit the number of mated connections in a fiber channel, eliminating the ability to deploy cross connects that allow for shorter fiber runs, better security and easier moves, adds and changes.

    In this webinar, you’ll find out how Siemon Low Loss Fiber Connectivity can support multiple mated connections for flexibility over a wide range of distances and configurations while remaining within the loss budget.

    Guidance on length and number of connections for a variety of Ethernet and Fibre Channel applications will be presented, as well as several different configurations to illustrate how Siemon Low Loss Fiber Connectivity components can be mixed and matched to stay within loss budget and support equipment interface requirements while enabling the use of cross connects for flexibility and manageability.
