CPI Technical Support Team visits Anixter Infrastructure Solutions Lab

September 23, 2011

This past August, members of the Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI) Technical Support Team had the opportunity to visit Glenview, Illinois, corporate home to distributor partner Anixter, and tour their Infrastructure Solutions Lab - known simply as the LAB. Check out this quick video tour to get a better idea.


As a cutting edge training, testing and demo site for a variety of vendor products sold through Anixter, the LAB isn't all that different from CPI's own Research, Development and Training (RD&T) Center located in Georgetown, Texas, and as such, the CPI Technical Team felt right at home learning more about our partners' capabilities.

Also during our visit to the LAB, where over 600 customers on average visit per year, we were intrigued to learn that Anixter's original "Levels" program was developed there, which then evolved into the well-known Category rating system that Structured Cabling uses to this day.

In the LAB's demo room, we were proud to see three CPI cabinet enclosures (two F-Series TeraFrame® Cabinets and one GF-Series GlobalFrame®) installed on-site, giving all visiting customers the chance to compare the quality, features and aesthetics of CPI solutions to the competition. Likewise, the demo area allows customers to see a variety of product and application solutions, and using a handy 70" touchscreen monitor, they can even access various data center management software interfaces, including CPI's own Scalable Enterprise Management Application (SEMA) Software.

All in all, our trip to the Anixter LAB was a rewarding experience and just one of the many ways in which CPI Technical Support is constantly striving to better our knowledge and expertise within the industry.
