HellermannTyton Partners with Cormant Technologies to Deliver a Portable Solution for the Management of IT Infrastructure

HellermannTyton has partnered with Cormant Technologies to develop a unique, intelligent infrastructure management (IIM) system using portable, barcode identification technology.

Northampton UK (PRWEB) May 27, 2005 -- HellermannTyton has partnered with Cormant Technologies to develop a unique, intelligent infrastructure management (IIM) system using portable, barcode identification technology. The system is available now and integrates HellermannTyton’s new iD series of Category 5e and Category 6 bar-coded products with a version of Cormant’s CableSolve Connectivity and Infrastructure Management Software. The portability of the HellermannTyton iD system gives users the flexibility to manage and document network connectivity and moves, adds and changes (MACs) both on or off site, using handheld Pocket PCs with barcode scanners.

The new iD series from HellermannTyton incorporates Category 5e and Category 6 patch panels, patch cords and faceplates, each labelled with a unique barcode designed for use with Cormant’s CableSolve software.

CableSolve uses a Pocket PC with an integrated barcode scanner, to read the iD barcode and identify the hardware’s location and end-to-end connectivity within the network infrastructure. The software is capable of managing the entire physical infrastructure from the structured cabling through to switches, routers, outlets, PCs and telephones.

“Using the CableSolve powerful portable software platform, users have complete management of their end-to-end cabling and network infrastructure,” explains David Gagel, Sales and Marketing Director, HellermannTyton. Gagel continues: “The barcode on the iD connectivity components and other network assets such as computers, printers, and telephones, make traceability easy and allows the IT manager freedom to view their entire network when and where they need it.”

The HellermannTyton iD/CableSolve IIM system allows an IT manager to select any port within the network and view connectivity components (patch panel outlets, patch cords, etc.). They can also view active equipment, information on the hardware platform and any software installed on it, view floor plan locations of all equipment and power supply connections to that equipment. iD active patching solutions will also be introduced later in the year.

Paul Goodison, CEO, Cormant Technologies Inc. comments: “We’re pleased to be working exclusively on the IIM product with HellermannTyton as a leader in the Structured Cabling Market. iD and CableSolve offer a new approach to IIM which delivers real value for money along with portability, accuracy and flexibility in to the hands of the IT Manager.”
