We won gold! We're excited to announce that Leviton won multiple Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards in 2019. We won the gold for our HDX Splice Modules, the silver for our Cable Management Clip and another silver for our Cat 6A Interactive Reference Guide. Our employees were recently recognized at BICSI's bustling 2019 Fall Conference in Las Vegas.
"Leviton Network Solutions has a long history of innovative industry firsts" said Thomas Dowd, senior director of global marketing at Leviton Network Solutions. "We make innovation happen!"
Our HDX Splice Modules – which won the gold – feature a patent-pending LC pigtail that allows for single fiber or mass fiber fusion splicing, as well as the first MTP field splicing option, supporting network migrations to 400 Gb/s.
"The HDX Splice Modules put Leviton on the front edge of the fiber fusion splice trend," Dowd said. "Rather than limiting fusion splicing to individual connectors or exposed fiber pigtails, the Fusion Splice Modules provide the protection, control and network manageability benefits of the Opt-X HDX platform to network operators who seek the near lossless links that fusion splicing provides. By providing this fusion splice capability in a contained module, it opens up more options for data center administrators to build their networks over time, have more consistent installations from facility to facility and reuses their fiber backbone."
Our silver-winning Cable Management Clip, which snaps onto a Leviton Standard Cable Management Bar, allows for cable installs that are 90 percent faster than securing individually with ties/fasteners, and 42 percent faster than tying down in six-cable bundles. Also a silver winner, our Cat 6A Interactive Reference Guide is a 90-page resource that helps customers more efficiently plan, bid and install today’s Cat 6A systems.
The Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2019 Innovators Awards program reviews and recognizes the most innovative applications of cabling and communications technology products and systems within the structured cabling industry.

We are committed to rolling out more innovative and trend-setting products in the future.
"We are not ready to announce anything right now, but there is no doubt that Leviton will continue to lead the industry with the best performing, most reliable products on the market," Dowd said. "That is why Leviton can offer a systems warranty that is unsurpassed in the industry. We are always focused on expanding our customers' possibilities."
