With our recent launch of the Contain-IT™ FLEX aisle containment solution, containment has been top-of-mind for Legrand. On April 12th we announced our new version of containment that is designed to maximize energy efficiency in data centers while eliminating many of the shortcomings that are associated with traditional containment solutions.
Fast on the heels of this announcement, our aisle containment expert and the product manager for the new solution – Dan Gosselin – contributed an article to the Cabling Installation & Maintenance magazine. Dan used this platform to talk about reliability – i.e., uptime – as one of the hidden values that a containment solution can bring to the end customer.

A few months ago, Legrand announced a partnership with Fiber Mountain, Inc., the Glass Core™ Company and provider of transformative software-defined networking (SDN) managed fiber connectivity for enterprise and colocation data centers.
This partnership allows Legrand to offer the Intelligent Cross Connect, providing our customers with a software-managed fiber connectivity layer with Legrand’s extensive range of fiber cabling and connectivity solutions.
The Intelligent Cross Connect provides a virtual connectivity fabric that enables dynamic layer 1 network switching, which, when used in conjunction with switch and router networks, provides the highest level of network control.
We’re already integrating the Intelligent Cross Connect into our Connected Infrastructure solutions to deliver dynamic and managed fiber connections to complement Legrand’s current data center offerings.
Why software based management? It delivers the ultimate in terms of:
- Remote real-time visibility and monitoring
- Automated network re-configurability
- Remote network management
- Optimized power and cooling for switching equipment
We expect these data center infrastructure connectivity offerings to provide significant benefits, including:
- CAPEX/OPEX savings
- Reducing or eliminating human errors
- Reducing labor costs
- Enhancing asset management

Just a few weeks ago, more than 25 inches of rain fell in just three days in the Bayou-Lafayette region of Louisiana, resulting in catastrophic flooding. 13 deaths; 30,000 evacuations; 150,000 homes damaged, and $8.7 billion in economic loss. The Louisiana floods have been deemed the worst natural disaster since Superstorm Sandy in 2012. President Obama declared 22 parishes in the area to be major disaster areas. Thousands of families are still residing in shelters and the recovery is just getting underway.
In recognition of the severity of this disaster, and knowing others will inevitably follow, Legrand is encouraging employees to contribute to the American Red Cross. Over the next 90 days Legrand will match employee contributions up to a total of $100,000. That means that, together, we have the potential to contribute $100,000! LNA’s minimum corporate donation will be $50,000.
