Richards-Zeta, Panduit and Cisco Systems, Inc., co-sponsors at CB Richard Ellis World
“Building Intelligence and Infrastructure for Connected Real Estate”™.
Santa Barbara, CA – August 19, 2005 – Richards-Zeta Building Intelligence, Inc., today announced that they will co-
exhibit with Panduit and Cisco Systems, Inc., at the CB Richard Ellis World Conference 2005, located in the Paris Hotel
and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada September 7-9, 2005, http://www.cbreevents.com/wc2005/.
Together, the three companies plan to jointly exhibit in booth’s 302/304/403/405, centrally located on the CBRE World
Conference floor. CBRE World Conference provides a premier venue for Richards-Zeta, Cisco, and Panduit to
demonstrate how the migration of an IP (Internet Protocol) centric world of connectivity in real estate comes together
through infrastructure and building intelligence, truly making the vision a reality for today’s business enterprise. As joint
sponsors, each company will be represented in all press, print and publications throughout the event including multi-
media, setting the stage for a continuation of Richards-Zeta, Cisco and Panduit’s groundbreaking participation at
At this venue each company will demonstrate their respective technology platforms, and how today’s enterprise driven
businesses can leverage the strengths of IP technologies to further improve operations, efficiency and performance from
one single building to a portfolio of buildings. The coordinated exhibit will show how to connect to disparate building
systems using Richards-Zeta Mediator/OMEGA® platform through the infrastructure of Panduit’s rack, DPoE™ (Data
Power over Ethernet) patch panel and cabling solutions, and to route information using Cisco’s Catalyst series switches,
CallManager® and VOIP telephony products to a user. “The demonstration of a purely IP centric platform will clearly
show how property owners & managers can utilize the IP technologies of today, to manage the buildings of tomorrow.
Ensuring that the correct infrastructure and equipment installed now can make connected real estate future-proof, adding
further value to the building(s) and improving the operational efficiency throughout the portfolio” says Ed Richards of
Richards Zeta. “Furthermore it is also critical to assemble a team of industry leaders, to design the right solutions and
implement the right application of equipment & systems” said Ed Richards.
CBRE World Conference Attendees will be able to readily assess how the real-life situations they face in today’s IT driven
workplace can be implemented into an effective solution for their properties, regardless of size or complexity. The need to
manage vast amounts of data, and proactively manage building and business systems has never been more important or
as critical to the bottom line.
Cisco, Panduit and Richards-Zeta are each uniquely positioned as leaders in IP technology, and their combined strengths
deliver upon the vision of a single network to manage voice, telephony, building systems and data storage from one
unified network. Jeff Paliga of Panduit explains that “By migrating building systems onto the IP network using structured
cabling solution for today’s high bandwidth data requirements, owners, real estate investors and property managers can
be more cost effective in delivering solutions to the ultimate end-users, while lowering the life-cycle costs dramatically and
speeding the deployment of other IP technologies”.
