Siemon to Showcase Advanced Infrastructure Solutions and Host Live Finale of LightBow™ Fiber Termination Contest at BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition

September 21, 2017. Watertown, CT - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, today announced that it is exhibiting at the upcoming BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition, where it will showcase a variety of innovative and advanced infrastructure solutions for data centers, LANs and intelligent buildings.

On display at the Siemon Booth #244 will be Siemon’s new SkinnyPatch™ 6A S/FTP Modular Patch Cords. Featuring a diameter of just 0.22 inches (5.5 mm), SkinnyPatch™ 6A S/FTP patch cords provide pathway savings in racks and cabinets while maximizing airflow for improved equipment reliability. The cord's smaller 28 AWG stranded copper construction offers a significantly tighter bend radius for easier cable routing and enhanced cable management.

Visitors to the booth can also learn more about Siemon’s new LightStack® 8 Ultra High Density Plug and Play System, which provides a complete end-to-end Base 8 fiber system for the most efficient support of 8-fiber applications with 100% fiber utilization. Also on display will be Siemon’s new Erika Violet cable and connectivity options for Siemon’s OM4 multimode fiber product lines, including plug-and-play fiber systems, trunk assemblies, jumpers, pigtails and fiber cable.

In addition, Siemon will be hosting the must-see conclusion to its LightBow Madness Fiber Termination Contest live at BICSI. Earlier this year, cabling contractors across the US were challenged to test their skills against each other to find out who could perform the fastest LightBow LC fiber connector field termination using Siemon's LightBow Fiber Termination System. Terminations were recorded and submitted via video and the contractor with the fastest time in each of Siemon’s US regions earned a free trip to Las Vegas to compete in a head-to-head, live competition. The contractor to achieve the fastest LightBow Fiber Termination time on September 26, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. at the Siemon booth will win an additional $1,000.

The 2017 BICSI Fall Conference takes place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 24-28. Siemon will be exhibiting at Booth #244 on Monday, September 25th from 4:30-7:30 p.m., Tuesday, September 26th from 2-7:30 p.m. and on Wednesday, September 27th from 7:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
