Tyco Electronics, iTRACS Corp. to Develop Intelligent Structured Cabling Solution
HARRISBURG, Pa., and CHICAGO
Tyco Electronics, a business unit of Tyco Int’l Ltd., and iTRACS Corp. have agreed to a strategic alliance to develop, market and sell an intelligent structured cabling solution with Tyco Electronics’ AMP NETCONNECT premises cabling systems and iTRACS’ real-time infrastructure management system.
Both companies say this solution will enable enterprise customers to minimize network downtime, reduce IT staff workload, and streamline moves, adds and changes by automating the management of the physical layer.
The agreement also includes provisions for sales, marketing and fulfillment of the iTRACS active monitoring equipment and iTRACS enabled premises wiring by Tyco Electronics. Tyco Electronics will promote the solution, to be launched in May, to customers building new facilities as well as those looking to add intelligent network management capabilities to existing installations.
“By allowing us to tap into the retrofit market as well as our installed customer base, iTRACS Corporation gives us the ability to reap the maximum business benefits from our entry into the infrastructure management space,” says Charlie Fox, general manager for the AMP NETCONNECT group of Tyco Electronics.
