Enabling High Performance Building with Connected Infrastructure

Thursday, January 12, 2017

The ability of a physical building to support improved employee productivity and business results by providing a “high performance” environment is a competitive advantage. It is also a lasting source of operational efficiency. These high-performance buildings (HPB) not only deliver best-in-class connected infrastructure, but also provide the means to interconnect technology solutions that often exist in silos. The high-performance building will be the catalyst for integration of the IT and facilities organizations to optimize the workplace as well as future investments to become true digital businesses.

PoE and its Impact on Cabling and Connectivity

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Safely supplying low voltage power over twisted pair communication cabling has existed since the earliest forms of cabled communication. In earlier days automated central offices supplied ring voltages of 30V + 15V via 1 or 2 pairs to residential or business land line telephones. More recently we progressed from data signaling voltages of 5V or less, to PoE power piggybacking over the same twisted 4 pair structured cabling in almost all commercial building communication cabling infrastructure. Check out our new whitepaper, PoE and its Impact on Cabling and Connectivity by  Gregg Lafontaine,  Sr. Product Manager at Legrand  to learn more.

Modular Technology: Moving Beyond Traditional Cooling Methods

Monday, April 18, 2016

Legrand® recently worked with The MITRE Corporation, a client who determined that it was more cost effective – both in initial capital expense and in long-term costs – to move beyond traditional raised floor or in-row cooling. Instead of these conventional approaches, MITRE instead utilized a modular technology, using a refrigerant-based Rear Door Active Heat Extractor (RDAHX) system. This allowed MITRE to adaptively retrofit the existing datacenter and dramatically increase its capacity, efficiency, and performance.
