TINLEY PARK, Ill. — (October 2, 2019) — Panduit, a global leader in innovative electrical and network infrastructure solutions, was recognized today with three Cabling Innovators Awards in the 2019 competition. Cabling Installation & Maintenance bestows the Innovators Awards annually to the best products and projects in the industry.
Panduit received three awards, including a Platinum honor for PoE Extenders, a new offering from Panduit that extends Power over Ethernet and data beyond the standard 100-meter channel. This allows facilities to connect and power devices like security cameras or control gates in parking lots, or security, access control, and lighting within a building entrance, which may be further than 100 meters from the nearest telecommunications room. “It is always an honor to be recognized for innovation, said Mike McGrath, director of product management and engineering for Panduit’s Enterprise business. “We take innovation seriously around here. We are always looking for new ways to solve customer problems. PoE Extenders are a perfect example, as we’ve found a way to easily connect common devices that are located beyond the channel, with a solution that is simple and inexpensive to install.”
Panduit also received two Gold awards in the case study classification:
