Ireland: Systimax Solutions, a provider of structured connectivity solutions for business enterprise applications, is excited about the increased potential for growth in the Asia Pacific region, including India, according to a report in the Economic Times.

The company noticed significant growth in bandwidth and internet-based business applications as drivers for more sophisticated cabling solutions.

Part of the U.S-based, $1.3-billion CommScope, a design and manufacturer of last mile cable and connectivity solutions and hybrid fibre coaxial applications, Systimax Solution’s Global Marketing Director Fionan Nolan said, "The delayed deployment of new technology in the region appears to be hindering business. A-Pac is suffering relatively more downtime."

Part of a study being conducted by the company across 45 countries, covering 1,500 IT managers of whom 25% were from Apac, it showed that the industry was willing to install newer cabling solutions to improve efficiency. Though APAC countries were lagging behind the global adoption rate for category 6A copper cabling, the study showed that the region was ahead of the global trend in fibre adoption. Cat 6A is the latest in traditional copper cabling that supports 10 Gb bandwidth.

“India's share in the company's business volume is on the rise, especially IT/ITeS, BFSI and manufacturing as sectors will contribute significantly to the company's growth in India,” said Ispran Kandasamy, Systimax's Managing Director for Asia Pacific adding that these sectors are seen to be fast
movers on the adoption of new technology.

The paper also reported that Systimax's business in India has been growing at around 30 percent per annum.
