Every home should have one – new connected building solution reduces Capital and Operating Expenses


March 27, 2007

March 28, 2007 Extraordinarily exciting news from the International Security Conference (ISC) being held in Las Vegas starting tomorrow is a connected building solution that paints a promising picture of the rate at which home automation technologies are maturing. The interactive Connected Building display at ISC Booth 3109 will demonstrate the deployment and convergence of a building automation system within the IT infrastructure. Utilizing a PANDUIT end-to-end system, including Power over Ethernet, zone cabling, and copper/fiber cabling, to monitor and control all building functions (e.g. security and communications) should result in significant operational efficiencies for the intelligent home of the future.

PANDUIT will feature its Connected Building Solutions at ISC West, in Las Vegas, NV on March 28-30. Supporting this solution is the DPoE Compact 8 Midspan, which provides a cost-effective, scalable solution with greater manageability for Power over Ethernet deployment in space-constrained locations. PANZONE Enclosures provide a secure and economical solution by acting as the main point of horizontal cable distribution in open office environments for easier moves, adds, and changes.

The PANDUIT display will also feature the NET-ACCESS Cabinet, which combines the aesthetics and security of a cabinet with the accessibility of an open rack. The cabinet is designed for switching and patching applications with specific features for optimal thermal management to ensure high network availability. As a result, PANDUIT has achieved Cisco Compatible status, passing rigorous testing and meeting the guidelines of the Cisco Technology Developer Program.
