TE Connectivity Releases Building Information Modeling Objects to Facilitate Network Design

MINNEAPOLIS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 5, 2014 — TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, today announced that it has released Building Information Modeling (BIM) objects for a collection of its most popular copper and fiber enterprise network solutions, making it easy to design new data center and local area network (LAN) projects with exacting accuracy.

BIM is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility that automates compatibility and error checks, which means easier, faster and more accurate designs and specifications for both physical form and fit and technical specification validations. Architects and planners are using BIM objects to design and specify entire buildings. BIM objects reflect both the physical dimensions of an object as well as providing metadata that cannot be displayed graphically (such as performance category, wiring pattern, weight, heat output, voltage draw, etc.) which are integral to an accurate design and specification.

TE has invested in BIM objects for five of its most popular product families including: FiberGuide fiber raceway, RMG and WMG fiber enclosures, TrueNet fiber panel (TFP), Quareo chassis and blades, and copper solutions including Category 5e, 6 and 6A patch panels and blocks, mounting systems, racks, and cable management systems. New modules will be added over time. TE’s BIM objects are available in the Autodesk Seek library.

“By investing in BIM objects, TE is making its products easier to design into projects with a high degree of accuracy,” said Gene Malone, global product manager at TE Connectivity. “Our BIM objects will help simplify and automate the design process for architects, engineers and contractors, ensuring that the design works in all aspects before construction even begins.”

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has mandated that all U.S. government projects (prospectus-level) be designed in BIM. Additionally, BIM adoption by non-government organizations has been increasing greatly in North American commercial markets, where more than 35 percent of architectural designs are now employing BIM in some form.
