Brand-Rex, the structured cabling system provider, today celebrates the 10th Anniversary of its flagship MillenniuM brand.
Ten years ago also saw the birth of MP3, Amazon and The Daily Telegraph Online. Today Brand-Rex MillenniuM customers contribute to a total of nearly 14,000 warranted sites, containing over 4 million copper lines and just short of a million fibre links. Financial institutions are a key industry sector for Brand-Rex worldwide, accounting for over half a million lines and representing one in eight of all MillenniuM installations.
Commenting on the Anniversary Brian Wilson, UK & Benelux Sales Director, Brand-Rex said, “The 10th year of MillenniuM has already got off to a flying start with the latest BSRIA “Market for Structured Cabling” report confirming Brand-Rex as the number one vendor in the UK based on sales of structured cabling products in 2004. We have also won prestigious projects for major customers such as Barclays, Mclaren and Clifford Chance – a trusted and mature brand like MillenniuM has consistently proved to be a winning factor in securing the confidence of large and small customers alike.”
“Over the years we have seen the introduction of intelligent infrastructure management, wireless LAN deployments and the latest Power over the Ethernet (PoE) technology. In short, today’s IT and IS Managers have some serious issues to consider when keeping pace with new technology and redesigning or planning future networks. We are already seeing the emergence of 10 Gigabit Ethernet shaking up the industry.
“Through extensive research and product development programmes Brand-Rex continues to provide innovative solutions giving customers a technological advantage and the assurance that their cabling systems will support ever increasing network demands,” Wilson concluded.
Incorporated in the MillenniuM range is Brand-Rex’s “SMART” banner that includes; SMARTPower – a midspan PoE solution, SMARTPatch – an intelligent infrastructure management solution, and the SMARTWave internal enterprise wireless platform.
The Brand-Rex MillenniuM range also includes Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat7 copper cabling and connectivity, fibre optic and air blown fibre solutions. Where appropriate, Brand-Rex structured cabling and components come with the option of a 25-year system warranty.
