Propelling Your Data Center Into The Future With Connectivity
As the expansion of data infrastructure capability and capacity accelerates exponentially, the ability to shift on the fly becomes a competitive necessity for organizations.
All data center systems today need to be designed for rapid adaption to new technologies and growth opportunities.
With this in mind, the greatest challenge becomes keeping the process of change as simple and seamless as possible.
Whether it’s for data center fit-ups or large migrations, this need for preserving simplicity and ease of use in this growingly more complex technological environment is perhaps the most daunting task of our digital age.
This is where the CommScope Propel™ suite of products serves as a dream solution for data center designers and installers.
CommScope’s engineering team has developed a high-speed fiber platform that is as they describe it, “fast, flexible and future ready.”
It’s a system of high-density fiber panels, interchangeable modules and adapter and multimode/singlemode fiber trunks and assemblies.
Clearly put, it’s a pre-configurable, snap-into-place modular system for ultra-low-loss fiber cabling and connectivity.
“I work with a lot of installers,” said Matt Baldassano, Technical Consultant for CommScope. “Installers like the ability to bring in cable and connectors from either the front side or back of the cabinet.”
“We’ve designed this system not only for easy accessibility during deployment for these installers, but we also streamline the ongoing maintenance processes of data management and troubleshooting.”
Baldassano likes to present this solution as “forward thinking” in that it easily allows for migration of systems across platforms. Propel can seamlessly migrate your systems to more efficient 400G/800G deployments while fully supporting your legacy 8-, 4- and 2-fiber applications.
This Propel solution is designed not only for your needs today, but well into the unforeseeable future.
“Our application assurance warranty provides for 25 years of supporting components and labor,” said Baldassano. “So essentially it allows you to add future solutions that you don’t even know you need now that are already baked into today’s design.”
The main draw of this rapid deployment solution is its modularity which increases your data center technical capabilities while lowering the complexity of its installation, maintenance, and enhancement.
With the availability of a QR code system offered through Propel the possibilities of future tracking and optimization makes the offering even more compelling.
“It’s going to be great when you’ll be able to basically scan the components and then upload those to a database for inventory and component management,” said Baldassano. “Then in some instances you’ll have real time circuit monitoring through intelligent components.”
