Siemon Expands Its Line of Keystone Connectivity Solutions

February 23, 2021. Watertown, CT, – Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, is pleased to announce the expansion of its keystone connectivity product line with keystone U.S. style single-gang faceplates, keystone UTP patch panels and keystone-compatible surface mount boxes to support customers who have standardized on the keystone format.

Siemon’s new keystone faceplates, patch panels and surface mount boxes support Siemon keystone Z-MAX® and MAX® UTP outlets available in category 5e, category 6 and category 6A performance. The keystone single-gang faceplates are available in 1-, 2- and 4-port versions in white, ivory, or stainless steel to meet a wide range of environments. Siemon’s keystone UTP patch panels available in 24-port flat and angled 1U and 48-port flat and angled 2U versions offer a flexible, modular termination solution for use in telecommunications rooms, data centers and larger consolidation point enclosures. Manufactured of high-strength steel with a black finish, highly visible port identification and labeling space, these panels mount easily in standard 19-inch racks or cabinets and feature a removable rear cable manager to facilitate orderly routing of cables and maintain proper bend radius for optimum performance.

Ideal for use in air-handling spaces to support connections to ceiling-mounted devices such as Wi-Fi access points, surveillance cameras and LED lights, Siemon’s keystone surface mount boxes are available in 1-, 2-, 4- or 6-port versions in white or ivory. With built-in cable management to ensure proper bend radius and anchor points to facilitate cable strain relief, keystone surface mount boxes provide a high-performance, well-organized installation.

“Keystone outlets, the de facto industry standard, offer the versatility of working with third-party low voltage accessories, “says Mike Boisseau, Siemon’s business unit leader for copper systems. “To support our customers who prefer a keystone solution, our Z-MAX and MAX keystone outlets snap easily into the new keystone faceplates, patch panels and surface mount boxes for a flexible, modular solution that provides a clean installation appearance.”
