Rittal and CommScope® to showcase InstaPATCH® ZERO at Cisco Live 2012
Jun 06, 2012 (04:06 PM EDT)

Developed in a collaborative effort, the server enclosure solution will be featured in the Rittal booth during the week-long exclusive event

URBANA, Ohio, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As a significant exhibitor at this year's exclusive Cisco Live event, Rittal Corporation will display a variety of its award-winning IT products, including the server enclosure it developed in collaboration with CommScope;  the SYSTIMAX® InstaPATCH ZERO – an innovative solution to help deploy servers faster and more efficiently. This and a host of other featured products will be front and center in booth 418.

The InstaPATCH ZERO is built around a Rittal enclosure that's 600mm wide and includes factory configured cord cassettes with pre-managed slack loops and a mini-rack mounted above the enclosure. The unique collaboration provides U/UTP and fiber connectivity in an integrated, modular system that enables rapid plug and play deployment of the server enclosure while providing best practices in intra-cabinet cable management. The complete solution consists of three components:

  • The Rittal-built enclosure with integrated cord cassettes
  • Additional cord cassettes to accommodate future growth
  • An overhead mini-rack

The ability of "Zero U" connectivity, an emphasis in Rittal designs, maximizes the use of all available space for active equipment within the enclosure.

In addition to the InstaPATCH ZERO enclosure, Rittal's booth will also include a complete lineup of precision products, including its Cisco Nexus® 7018 rack and Cisco R Series rack for use with its Unified Computing System. Elsewhere in booth 418, Rittal will feature the latest in its line of Liquid Cooling Packages (LCP), its new 52U enclosure, its new Computer Multi Control (CMC) III and its latest chimney solution.

The "by invitation only" Cisco Live is expected to attract more than 15,000 IT specialist and industry executives to Southern California June 10-14, and will be the headline event at the San Diego Convention Center.
