As the way business is conducted grows and changes, so too have the buildings that house each business. Today's buildings are connected and designed to provide an open, collaborative and productive work environment while still conforming to energy efficiency standards. In order to achieve this, many organizations have turned to network infrastructures to enable smart building automation system (BAS) devices.
Panduit, provider of the industry's most comprehensive and holistic portfolio of products, software and services that enable the connected enterprise, has helped many businesses save money with its Unified Physical Infrastructure design principles. The company's complete offering of enterprise network infrastructure, meanwhile, allows building owners and property managers to leverage their IP network to reduce occupancy costs and enhance the workplace experience.
Indeed, Panduit's enterprise network infrastructure offerings can help manage building systems including lighting controls, HVAC systems, physical access security, surveillance cameras, interactive lobby kiosks, sensor controls, digital signage and collaboration rooms. This helps organizations mitigate risk through efficient physical infrastructure management, lower costs, increased agility and enhanced sustainability by driving resource and energy efficiencies across the physical infrastructure.
For example, Panduit's seamless modular outlet connection products bridge work area computing/communication devices with the IP network. Copper cabling solutions support emerging technologies such as VoIP, HD video, power over Ethernet and desktop virtualization, while PanZone zone cabling systems serve as a main distribution point for open office architecture applications, wireless deployments and network integration in building automation systems.
Aside from the work area and conference rooms, Panduit also offers enterprise network infrastructure solutions for the telecommunication room, data center, operations center and much more. For more information, check out a recent case study released by the company.
Panduit boasts a number of offerings in the enterprise solutions market — its automatic cable tie installation system is ideal for keeping overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) up, for example — which led largely to success in 2012.
