27th January 2014, Excel Networking Solutions, the copper and optical cabling infrastructure provider has launched a new range of racks under the name of ‘Environ’.
The launch is in response to growing demand from integrators, consultants and end user clients for an even broader set of well designed, quality enclosures to be made available under the Excel brand. With many new product and feature introductions within the Environ range, Excel provides a true end-to-end solution with copper, fibre, MTP, racking and power available from a single provider.
Environ comprises five separate ranges including a featured packed standard cabinet for everyday use, an open frame solution with high density, providing extremely flexible cable management options, through to the flagship SR range designed specifically for server room and data centre applications.
The SR range comes with a stylish wave vented, mesh front door providing 70% airflow and vented rear wardrobe doors to provide further air circulation and easy access. The rack is designed to take up to 1300kg load capacity, perfect for use in data centre environments.
The Environ OR open rack has been updated to add a much wider choice of vertical and horizontal cable management and with its small footprint provides a true high density option where there is a secure environment to locate them in.

Change doesn’t have to be hard. With Panduit’s PanMPO™ Connector, you can change the polarity and gender of the fiber optic connector in the field, making your 10G to 40G Ethernet migration quick, easy and cost-effective.
The PanMPO™ Connector is the only MPO fiber optic connector available that can change polarity and gender in a matter of seconds. This means when it is time to migrate to 40G, you can switch the connectors to maintain standards-compliance without replacing your fiber infrastructure.
Always have the Right Cable Assembly
Stock one type of cable assembly instead of six … the only thing you have to figure out is length! Simply switch the connector on your cable to have the polarity and gender you need. Improve your operational efficiency, save time, and save money.
Easily convert between male and female gender, and between key-up and key-down polarity for a standards-compliant 10G or 40G Ethernet installation
Connector changes are made in the field, as needed
Always have the right cable assembly on hand
Available on trunks, harnesses, interconnects and reference cords
With the rapid and expansive growth of networked communications across the data center, enterprise, and factory floor, each point of connection with the physical infrastructure becomes mission critical. Often, professionals minimize the importance of a strong physical infrastructure and the role it plays in risk mitigation, especially when network failures are no longer isolated to individual systems, but affect multiple parts of the business.
SmartZone™ Solutions, a suite of data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions, are designed to help you manage risk and change within the physical infrastructure by providing real-time data on the status of power, cooling, connectivity, security, and environmentals from the enterprise to individual devices in data center cabinets.
