November 20, 2013

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 11/20/13 -- Methode's Data Solutions Group, a global manufacturer focused on data center efficiency, security and environmental impact, will showcase its integrated Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution and Quantum? Cabling Solution Nov. 20 and 21 at Booth #70 of the DatacenterDynamics (DCD) Converged conference in London.

Methode's Data Solutions Group, a division of Methode Electronics, Inc. (NYSE: MEI), a global developer of custom-engineered and application-specific products and solutions, recently announced its collaboration to provide a turn-key DCIM solution that integrates Methode hardware with Norlinx software. The Methode and Norlinx DCIM solution combines monitoring and analytics into a single, easy-to-install tool suite, allowing customers to achieve rapid return on investment and immediate benefits.

"A comprehensive DCIM solution gives data center managers complete control and oversight of their operations," said Tim Hazzard, president of Methode Electronics' Data Solutions Group. "Monitoring environmental measurements -- such as temperature, airflow and humidity -- as well as operations and security details, delivers key metrics in real time. This strategic DCIM offering from Methode and Norlinx improves efficiency and saves companies significant time and money."

The Quantum? Cabling Solution maximizes valuable rack space, while saving time and improving troubleshooting and MAC (move-add-change) activities when compared to traditional cabling methods. It is capable of handling the highest port count of hardware on the market and is simple to install and easy to manage.

"Managers are looking for ways to increase port density in enterprise data center operations, but that can cause headaches for technicians who handle the cabling," Hazzard added. "Our streamlined option, Methode's Quantum? Cabling Solution, maximizes the space available with sleek cables that are fast and simple to install."

Methode's data center experts will be on site at DCD Converged London to feature both the Company's DCIM capabilities and its patented Quantum? Cabling Solution. Visit Methode at Booth #70 for demonstrations and additional information.
