Innovation was on display at last week’s Cabling Innovators Awards, sponsored by Cabling Installation & Maintenance. Panduit was honored to accept three of the awards, recognizing our customers and us for bringing innovation to network design and installation.
Cisco Canada was honored with a platinum award for its new Canadian Headquarters facility. “The new Cisco Canada Headquarters is a living example of how we can harness the power of the Internet of Everything to create a smart building that’s truly sustainable and a leader in energy efficiency,” said Rick Huijbregts, Vice President, Industry and Business Transformation, Cisco. The LEED-certified building is considered to be the smartest building in North America and operates on a single, converged IP network, with electricity delivered primarily via Power over Ethernet (PoE). The building features 1,400 PoE LED lighting fixtures and 1,800 PoE controllers for the HVAC system, delivered via Panduit patch cabling. “We are proud to be working with Panduit to support initiatives like this and honored to be sharing this award with them,” Huijbregts added.
We also accepted a Silver award on behalf of Royal Caribbean for the Quantum of the Seas. Quantum of the Seas was the first of Royal Caribbean’s Quantum Class ships, with a wealth of technology onboard: superfast wireless speeds; RFID luggage tracking; virtual balconies in interior cabins; and even robotic bartenders. The network infrastructure that supports all of this technology is delivered via Panduit QuickNet Copper and Fiber Pre-terminated Cabling Solutions. The pre-terminated solution was selected to speed remote installation and limit installation expenses.
The third award we received recognizes our Turn-Tell Labeling. A network service provider in Japan selected these innovative labels for an application that required labeling on each end of thousands of connections in a high-density network. The labels can be turned after they’ve been applied, without twisting the cabling.
“I would like to congratulate Panduit on their Silver–level honoree status,” said Cabling Installation & Maintenance Group Publisher Alan Bergstein. “This competitive, unbiased program celebrates the most innovative projects in the structured cabling industry. We are pleased to celebrate Panduit‘s Silver status and recognize their contribution to the structured cabling industry.”
The awards were determined by a panel of judges comprised of cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators and managers with vast professional experience.
