Methode's Data Solutions Group Showcases Innovative DCIM and Cabling Solutions at SNW Europe


CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 10/29/13 -- Methode's Data Solutions Group, a global manufacturer focused on data center efficiency, security and environmental impact, invites SNW Europe attendees to explore its integrated Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution and Quantum? Cabling Solution on Oct. 29 and 30 at Booth #84 of the SNW Europe conference in Frankfurt.

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.

"Our comprehensive DCIM product equips data centers with immediate monitoring, reporting and control," said Tim Hazzard, president of Methode Electronics Data Solutions Group. "Data center managers are apprised of environmental measurements -- such as temperature, airflow and humidity -- as well as operations and security details in real time. This strategic relationship between Methode and Norlinx gives our customers comprehensive data center intelligence."

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 hardware on the market and is simple to install and easy to manage.

"We know data center managers are looking for ways to increase port density in enterprise data center applications, but that can present challenges for technicians managing the cabling. Methode's Quantum? Cabling Solution streamlines and simplifies installation and maintenance, saving our customers time and money," Hazzard said.

Methode's data center experts will be onsite at SNW Europe to feature both the Company's DCIM capabilities and its patented Quantum? Cabling Solution. Visit Methode at Booth #84 for demonstrations and additional information.
