BOTHELL, Wash., Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton recently announced that they will show the latest in data center copper and fiber network systems at the 2016 BICSI Winter Conference, from February 1–3, at booth #1119. Attendees can preview the Atlas-X1TM Category 8 Copper Cabling System for the first time, and get a hands-on look at advanced multimode fiber connectivity and new IT/AV controls. These solutions are designed to equip customers with flexible and scalable infrastructures, capable of supporting future data and AV network requirements like more frequent tech refreshes and rapid growth.

Built on a unified connector form-factor across Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6A and Cat 8 applications, the Atlas-X1 System allows for a seamless migration from 1G to 40G networks. Attendees can get an early look at Leviton Category 8 connectivity and complementary Berk-Tek Category 8 cable in advance of emerging standards. In early 2015, Leviton announced that Atlas-X1 connectivity and Berk-Tek cable had been tested to meet connectivity performance standards found in the current draft 2.0E of the TIA-568-C.2-1 Category 8 proposed standard and can support the operation of IEEE 802.3bq 25G/40GBASE-T applications up to 30 meters.

Leviton's Violet OM4+ Opt-X® Unity solutions — including fiber trunks, cords, cassettes and
more — were recently installed by eBay Inc. when upgrading its data center networks to 40G. These solutions will be on display at the booth, while eBay's award-winning project will be featured at a lunch-and-learn session titled "Go Inside an eBay Data Center." Attendees can learn how eBay and Leviton collaborated to create longer multimode cable runs, greater density and a design that helps the company easily migrate to network speeds of 40G, 100G and beyond. The event will be held during BICSI on Tuesday, February 2, at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort. The lunch-and-learn has limited space and attendees must register at Leviton.com/LL16.

New Leviton AV solutions help prepare classrooms and conference rooms for the latest technologies like UHD displays with 4K resolution. Visitors to the booth can see new additions to Leviton's plug-and-play IT/AV Systems, such as innovative wallplates that connect, switch and extend multiple high-definition AV signals to displays or projectors. Leviton IT/AV Systems can extend signals up to 100 meters over HDBaseT™ certified links with no programming required.
