Simplified Edge Solution at Cisco Live

Friday, May 25, 2018

This year, Cisco Live’s event team is deploying a “Simplified Edge” solution from Legrand. This edge solution includes Legrand vertical wall-mount cabinets, network connectivity and other integrated Legrand solutions, throughout Cisco Live (US) where they will be housing the network infrastructure for the show floor. In collaboration with the Data Center Power and Control Division, comprising of Server Technology, a Brand of Legrand and Raritan, a Brand of Legrand, the cabinets will also be outfitted with installed PDUs, both basic and intelligent variations depending on the configuration for a simplified edge solution.

The intelligent configurations, 6 units in total, will be visible throughout the show floor with Raritan, a Brand of Legrand, intelligent power distribution units, remote door locks, door contact sensors, and temperature sensors integrated. The units will be delivered to the event with all the components (minus the switch) integrated into the cabinets by Legrand. While on-site, minimal work will need to be done to bring these units online, allowing for faster deployment of the units.

The Intelligent cabinet was integrated with the following Legrand components:

  • Vertical Wall-Mount Cabinet (Split-Door, Custom Clear Front Door)
  • 24-Port High Density Connectivity Panel and Jacks
  • Reduced Diameter Patch Cords
  • Active Fans (Exhaust)
  • Intelligent PDU
  • Temperature and Humidity Sensor
  • Remote Door Lock with Card Access
  • Door Contact Sensor
  • LED Task Light
With Legrand being able to provide all the needed components, a single PO was able to be provided – cutting down on the management that would be needed between multiple vendors. If you’re at the show, be sure to stop by our booth or one of the deployed VWMs across the show floor and see our vision of a simplified edge deployment.
