An IntelliJack is born

3Com and Siemon entered into a strategic alliance and created a new range of products for the LAN user segment. The alliance gave birth to IntelliJack, a new range of switches that aim to help an organization manage its network more easily. IntelliJack switches cliams to be the industry's only system that converts a single Ethernet wall outlet into four switched Ethernet ports, with Siemon's pass-through adapter plates. Each IntelliJack features two optional unswitched 'pass-through' ports fitted with adapter plates that snap into the back of the 3Com switch to accommodate Siemon MAX® connectors.

"At 3Com, we believe one network should be capable of driving many Internet protocol-based applications, from voice and data to access control and security video," said Seth Adler, 3Com global marketing manager. "Companies invest in the Siemon Cabling System® because they have a need for a robust cabling infrastructure capable of supporting the growing level of convergence and advanced networking applications. IntelliJacks with Siemon adapters allow them to extend their networks quickly and simply. Working together, 3Com and Siemon can now provide customers with the rock-solid connectivity they need from core to edge."

Carrie Higbie, Global Network Applications Market Manager for Siemon said, "When it comes to overall end-user satisfaction and protection of their network investment, the cabling system specified is of crucial importance. The 3Com IntelliJack is useful when running new cabling channels isn't practical for reasons such as overfilled raceway or lack of available ports in the telecommunications room," she added. "Customers can now purchase 3Com IntelliJacks along with Siemon connectivity."

3Com and Siemon are planning additional joint initiatives that aim to help customers create reliable, high-performance networks.
