Siemon Acquires Gigaduct Fiber Containment System
FREMONT, CA: Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist will acquire Gigaduct Fiber Containment System from UK-based Gigacom Ltd to leverage all existing Gigaduct assets, inventory, tooling and customer base.
Being a flexible raceway system, Gigaduct routs, manages and protects fiber optic cables in data centers, colocation centers, service provider hosting and other fiber computing environments.
The Gigaduct System features easy-to-assemble ducts, fittings, bends and tees in various sizes to meet a wide range of fiber deployment needs as it is manufactured from halogen-free, flame-retardant plastics. The system is specially tailored to maintain bend radius and protect fiber from the most rigorous conditions. The system’s easy-access covers enable fiber installation or removal without disconnecting the entire pathway system.
The acquisition results in expansion of Siemon's existing portfolio of WheelHouse Advanced Data Center Solutions. The solutions include company's established line of copper and fiber cable, connectivity systems, high-speed interconnect assemblies, cabinets, cable management, power distribution, and comprehensive data center design services. Together these solutions can support any size and type of data center, from large super computing environments and colocations, to small-to-mid size enterprise data centers.
"We are excited to expand our data center offering with the Gigaduct Fiber Containment System, which fits well into our WheelHouse with expert data center design services that will now include layout of this fiber ducting system," says Tony Veatch, Director of Product Management for Siemon. "With this acquisition and Siemon's existing global footprint, we will have significant opportunity to expand Gigaduct's reach and better serve our data center customers around the world with a more comprehensive portfolio."
