Mayflex and RiT Technologies Announce Partnership New EPV Cabling Management Solution
TEL AVIV, Israel and BIRMINGHAM, England, March 2, 2010-- RiT Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: RITT) and Mayflex today announced a
strategic partnership agreement that sees Mayflex, U.K.-based provider of
advanced cabling infrastructure, add RiT's recently-launched EPV Cabling
Management Solution to its Excel range of copper and optical fibre cabling
systems. Through this agreement, the EPV solution will be available to Excel
customers in the U.K. and Ireland.
EPV is RiT's most recent addition to its industry-leading portfolio of
Enterprise cabling management solutions. Designed for easy deployment in
existing cabling networks, EPV is intended for organizations looking to take
a first, risk-free step into cabling management, thereby gaining an accurate,
real-time picture of the cabling infrastructure. As a standalone solution
designed to work straight from the box EPV requires no installation of
additional software or servers and is extremely simple to operate.
"The EPV concept is a winner, and we are excited to introduce
it to the Excel installer base," commented Andrew Percival, Managing
Director, Mayflex. "After deciding to add a cable management solution to our
offering, it was natural for us to turn to RiT, the industry's clear leader,
for the most advanced and innovative solution in the Cable Management space.
We look forward to working together to bring this practical, user-friendly
solution to a market in need of better control."
Simon Robinson, Excel Product Manager continued "Positioning wise, the
sweet spot for EPV is the top end of the SME market, and the bottom end of
the enterprise market, and any organization with remote facilities. We see
great scope for this solution in retail, local government, dispersed office
environments, and manufacturing/campus sites. Ease of set up and use, mean
that cost of ownership is low, and return on investment can be genuinely be
made in just a matter of months."
EPV consists of a number of hardware components, including an EPV Central
and EPV Scout or an EPV Controller, depending upon the topology of the
network, which are connected easily to the panels in a company's existing
communication racks. Once this hardware is connected to the network, EPV
automatically collects up-to-date information regarding connections
throughout the panels and communications racks. Delivered via a
user-friendly, permission-based GUI on Internet web browsers, this
information is accessible wherever there is Internet connectivity. In
addition, since all connectivity changes are detected immediately, the system
is able to send notifications and real-time alerts the moment a change
occurs, both to the system GUI and to the IT staff via email.
Avi Kovarsky, President and CEO of RiT Technologies,
concluded, "We are very excited by the strong positive reception that the
market has given our EPV concept and look forward to introducing it to
markets throughout the world. We are gratified that a brand as prestigious
and far-reaching as Excel will include our solution and believe the
relationship will help us make a strong penetration into the Enterprise
marketplace throughout the UK and beyond."
EPV will be available with Excel from April 2010 onwards.
