Excel breaks new ground with CommScope iPatch accreditation

Excel’s reputation as the UK’s leading specialist in iPatch system integration has been reinforced with the award of iPatch Integration BusinessPartner status by global infrastructure technology giant CommScope.

The award recognises Excel’s market-leading expertise and experience in the installation and application of CommScope’s Intelligent Infrastructure Management (IIM) technology.


Part of the next-generation SYSTIMAX 360 solutions platform, iPatch delivers complete visibility and control across the physical layer infrastructure, allowing users to monitor, document and analyse factors such as connectivity and equipment, system changes, new network devices and unauthorised access and activity.

Excel director Barry Horgan explained: “What stands Excel apart as the UK leader in iPatch software integration is not just our experience in deploying this exceptional technology, but the way in which we leverage it to deliver cost savings and system improvements for our clients.

“By building on the physical layer visibility and control that iPatch offers, not only are we unlocking the full potential of existing cabling assets, but we are also creating and delivering intelligent and far-reaching solutions that achieve significant efficiencies in the datacentre, at the desktop or more broadly across a business’s total use of real estate.

“Ultimately, we see IIM as a tool that allows IT infrastructure to drive efficiency throughout the whole business.”

Stephen Kowal, vice president, Global Partners, CommScope, said: “We’re confident that Excel has the experience, training, qualifications and skilled professional staff to help enterprise customers in the United Kingdom evolve their network infrastructures with high-performance, intelligent solutions.”
