Hubbell Premise Wiring, a global provider of 10-Gigabit and power-over- Ethernet (PoE) structured cabling solutions, has formed a marketing alliance with Mitel to address the physical infrastructure requirements of enterprise Internet protocol (IP) communications deployments.

“A lot of attention gets focused on mating a voice solution to the switching network. Hubbell is working with Mitel to go one step further by addressing the need for integration at the physical, power and asset management level. In fact, a planned approach to the physical environment is a critical element in any enterprises’ communications strategy,” said John Szupiany, vice president of product marketing for Hubbell.

In an effort to provide resellers and customer’s access to high performance infrastructure components, the Hubbell Premise Wiring PowerTrac PoE patch panel has been tested and verified by Mitel as a mid-span panel solution for use with the Mitel 3300 IP Communications Platform (ICP).

To enable customers to see Hubbell and Mitel products working together in a live environment, Hubbell is installing its infrastructure solutions at select Mitel demonstration centers, including Mitel’s Costa Mesa, Calif.; Atlanta; and Vancouver, B.C., offices. Hubbell will also offer an extended 25-year warranty on its connectivity products for Mitel systems that use Hubbell solutions.
