New containment and vertical wall cabinet solutions for 2017

Legrand’s new containment solution is designed to maximize flexibility, adaptability and availability for data center air flow management.  The new lightweight, time-saving solution will be able to adapt to almost any environment by utilizing common stocked parts and no manufacturer customization is required.  Legrand’s new vertical wall cabinet solution is being designed to make mounting deeper and heavier equipment inside the cabinet easier and more secure. This solution will support mounting Edge and IoT applications in a minimal footprint, which can allow for mounting in tighter spaces, and will be more efficient than traditional swing-out wall-cabinets.


Intelligent Cabinet 

Legrand’s Data Communications division and Raritan®, a leading provider of intelligent data center management and rack power distribution solutions, will each have on display its working model of the Legrand Intelligent Cabinet Concept. The working model of the Intelligent Cabinet is designed to monitor and manage, from anywhere, all the IT and integrated infrastructure elements secured in the cabinet, thereby streamlining work, cutting costs, and shifting the focus from managing many elements to managing only one element – the Cabinet.  The paradigm shift to the cabinet or rack as the standard IT unit to manage is expected to make it easier for those centrally located IT and data center professionals responsible for rollouts and uptime in remote locations.
