Siemon® Introduces MapIT G2, the Next-Generation Intelligent Infrastructure Solution for Physical Layer Network Management

Share Article

MapIT® G2 offers best-in-class user interfaces, 80% higher density and a 75% reduction in power consumption versus competing intelligent infrastructure solutions.

Siemon, a recognized leader in network cabling solutions, is proud to introduce MapIT G2, a complete upgrade of their popular MapIT intelligent infrastructure management (IIM) solution. MapIT G2 integrates a powerful combination of innovative Smart Patch Panels, user-friendly Master Control Panels and MapIT software to provide real-time tracking and reporting of network-wide physical layer activity.

Designed with a higher degree of intelligence, MapIT G2 patch panels and fiber enclosures feature an onboard LCD screen that provides connection status, diagnostics and dynamic label information. The LCD display provides more detailed instructions to technicians versus simple LEDs or traditional non-intelligent panels. The ability to monitor and display copper and fiber patching fields in real time and perform diagnostics through this onboard interface reduces troubleshooting time and speeds the completion of work orders.

The MapIT G2 Master Control Panel (MCP) collects all network infrastructure data provided by the Smart Patch Panels and Fiber enclosures, monitoring up to 2880 ports in just 1 rack mount space (U). The MCP features an integrated LCD display and keypad, which provide technicians access to key network architecture and diagnostic information. By providing this interface locally within the patching zone, the MCP virtually eliminates the need for technicians to carry PDAs or directly access the MapIT software server. The MCP interface allows full end-to-end graphic circuit traces for any channel in the system and can perform extensive diagnostic tasks on any component or port.

The combination of MapIT G2 patching and MCP enables 80% higher density than competing systems, providing a huge reduction in the amount of critical and expensive data center rack/cabinet and floor space. For example, common IIM systems can require up to 60U of equipment to manage 20,000 ports. MapIT G2 can manage the same 20,000 ports in just 7U.

In addition to improved density, MapIT G2 dramatically reduces power consumption, using 75% less power than other IIM systems for a decided "green" advantage. This lower power consumption reduces heat generation and energy consumed by thermal management systems.

Available in Category 6A (Class EA) shielded and unshielded and Category 6 (Class E) unshielded as well as singlemode and multimode 10Gb/s optical fiber, the MapIT G2 system is fully scalable. It can handle networks from 24 ports to 65,000 ports in a single patching field, making it equally effective managing a massive data center or a widespread network of small remote sites.
