Jay Kay Event – Commscope
During the Jay Kay Systems event, we had opportunities to meet in small groups with each manufacturer. These are my notes from the various sessions.
Manufacturer of Physical Infrastructure products
Looked at imVision System Manager
Patch Panel can sense when a cable is connected or not. You can use any patch cable. Uses a sensor strip that can be installed on an existing commscope patch panel. Use a controller that can connect to a full rack full of patch panels, and keep it uploaded to the server.
Using the imVision software, can create links between face plates, patch panels, switches. Then can ask to connect a service to a port – which will then tell you where to connect, and create a work order to have it done.
Very amazing hardware that tracks each port, can press one button on the controller, lights up where you need to connect. Can even run reports on which ports have not seen any traffic, etc.
Have to check it out.
