At this year’s Cisco Live 2017 we had a number of our partners within our booth demonstrating solutions that have been integrated with Legrand products, and one of our longest-standing technology partners, OptiCool®
Technologies, had their rear-door heat exchanger on one of our LX cabinets. The OptiCool Cool Door®
is capable of rejecting up to 30 kW per rack (or 20 kW with redundancy), making it perfect for high-density and compute-intensive applications.
Last year we unveiled our new booth layout showcasing our solutions from the “White Space to Your Space.” Part of the renovation included a live PoE lighting example as we joined Cisco’s Digital Building (previously Digital Ceiling) ecosystem. This year, we revamped our booth to showcase our upcoming Vertical Wall Mount Cabinet which is able to vertically mount 19” equipment without protruding into the space as much as traditional wall mounts where the equipment is mounted horizontally.
First unveiled at Gartner Data Center last year, our Intelligent Cabinet Concept has made its way to Cisco Live. The concept was made possible using the processor that are typically used in Raritan intelligent PDUs and moving that power and functionality to the entire cabinet. Rather than having two intelligent PDUs, each with their own powerful processor, we integrated a single controller into the top of the cabinet that can control and monitor all aspects of the cabinet.
You’ve probably heard of software-defined networking before. Actually, I overhead Cisco Live attendees expressing how everything at the show is “software-defined” and they were getting fed up with all the different companies promoting their SDN solutions. I think we might’ve been one of those companies.
Legrand’s newest modular aisle containment solution, Contain-IT™ FLEX, will be prominently featured in Cisco’s Network Operations Center at the Cisco Live trade show in Las Vegas, NV, from June 26 – 29th. Legrand worked closely with Cisco to understand their needs and built a unique cold-aisle solution with the standard Contain-IT FLEX components.
