WEST HARTFORD, Connecticut — May 18, 2022 — Legrand, the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, today unveiled Nexpand, its new data center cabinet platform. The new platform is flexible, sturdy, and secure for housing data center devices. It provides the scalability and future-proof architecture needed to support the rise in digital transitions, Internet-of-Things (IoT) connectivity, 5G services, edge computing, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications. Over a two-year period, Legrand's R&D efforts—as well as multiple customer input sessions—have led to substantial design advances resulting in a unique IT cabinet solution that meets data center demands now and into the future. "Legrand's innovations are predicated on delivering solutions to our customers in the most efficient manner possible," said Saman Berookhim, Product Manager, Legrand. "The Nexpand cabinet honors this philosophy by offering a single, configure-to-order platform that will enable our customers to easily scale as needed in a robust and configurable manner."
