RiT and Belden CDT Networking Launch IntelliMAC-Plus GigaBIX Solution, World's-First Managed Termination Block
FORT MILL, S.C. and TEL AVIV, Israel, Jan. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Belden CDT Networking, part of Belden CDT Inc. (NYSE: BDC) and a world leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of a broad range of cabling and connectivity components, and RiT Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: RITT), the pioneer of Intelligent Physical Layer Management Solutions (IPLMS), today launched the IntelliMAC-Plus GigaBIX Solution, the world's first solution for managing termination block connectivity. (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20040727/LNTU008LOGO-a ) This cutting-edge product is the first to be developed under the framework of the strategic R&D and Marketing partnership formed between the two companies in January 2004. Note: the partnership was formed between RiT and NORDX/CDT. CDT has since merged with Belden to become a $1.1 billion supplier of products for the specialty electronics and data networking markets. By bringing IPLMS functionality to GigaBIX and BIX Cross-Connect Wire solutions, the IntelliMAC-Plus delivers a broad range of quick-ROI benefits to the BIX termination block environment -- benefits proven through a decade of intelligent patch panel usage throughout the world. Whether deployed at the time of a new installation or retrofitted to existing installations, the solution's LED-guided Moves, Adds and Changes (MACs), comprehensive monitoring and alert capabilities, and automatic documentation help the IT staff slash the cost of network maintenance, reduce downtime, improve planning and increase physical security. "We are excited to join with RiT in bringing the proven IPLMS concept to the world of termination blocks," said Brian O'Connell, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for the Belden CDT Networking Division. "BIX and GigaBIX installations are often deployed when real-estate is at a premium so the connections are very dense and visibility is hard to achieve. By bringing features like LED-guided MACs into these high-density environments, we can help customers maximize network uptime by improving troubleshooting, and optimize their maintenance budgets by reducing the time it takes to perform the MAC." "The strategic partnership between our two companies has been particularly effective and satisfying, resulting in a superb new product in record time," added Liam Galin, President and CEO of RiT. "Working together, we will now begin joint-marketing the IntelliMAC-Plus GigaBIX solution throughout the world. In addition, we continue expanding our R&D partnership with new projects that take advantage of the expertise of both our companies."
