Nexans launches new snap-in patch panel range

New design delivers increased flexibility by providing a future upgrade path to LANsense Intelligent Infrastructure Management (IIM)

LANsenseParis, June 22, 2007 – Nexans has launched a range of LANsense upgradeable modular patch panels. The move meets a growing  demand in the market for more flexible solutions that enable the transfer to intelligent network systems at any stage during the development cycle.

With convergence and change management driving the need for increased flexibility, the new panel is ideally suited to applications where IIM may not be considered as an immediate requirement today, but enables future implementation without the need to re-cable.

In essence the newly designed panels future-proof the user’s system and meet the same high functionality and flexibility standards users have become accustomed to with Nexans’ current range of modular panels, but they now offer a unique future-proofing feature with an interchangeable front. The standard front plate can now be upgraded to a LANsense PCB plate without removing or re-terminating the existing cabling. The upgraded front plate is equipped with a detection contact to each cabling port and an I/O connector, enabling the panel to be linked to the LANsense system.

Panels with sliding mechanisms will be available in black and white and fixed panel designs will be available in black. Both fixed and sliding panels are equipped with a clip-on for easy and fast cable retention and are compatible with all Nexans’ snap-in type connectors from Category 5 to Category 7, both screened and unscreened, adding further intelligence upgradeability. No significant new installation is required and disruption is minimal. This development ensures the most versatile and comprehensive panel offering in the cabling industry.
