At the Fall BICSI Conference, Rosenberger will introduce its Lyra Intelligent Micro Data Center platform ‘in a box’ for IoT edge and 5G MEC applications, as well as its FTH-9 Plus Wave ODF cabinet for Seismic Zone 4 “Ring of Fire”-sensitive data center installations. The LYRA IMDC provides power, cooling, UPS, cable management and cloud remote-monitoring. It can be installed in less than 3 hours with 40% space-savings versus traditional data center installations. Applications include small data centers, office areas and edge deployments.
The structured cabling market recorded a CAGR of over 6% during the period, 2013 to 2017. The structured cabling industry has been underpinned by the continual expansion in the data centers, the increasing mobile internet subscriptions, and the constantly changing business infrastructure. Value of the structured cabling market was estimated at nearly US$ 16 billion in 2018, and is forecast to record a CAGR of approximately 8% through 2028.
Parallel optics technology has become the transmission option of choice in many data centres as it is able to support 10G, 40G, and 100G transmission. For parallel optics to work effectively, it requires the right choice of cable and connector. It is no doubt that fiber optic cable is the main choice for data center cabling as it can provide numerous advantages over twisted-pair copper in a data center environment that allow network designers to benefit from new data center architectures.
Huber+Suhner introduced its LISA Double Access solution at ECOC 2019, as part of the company’s extensive Fiber Connectivity portfolio. The high-density and modular cross-connect fiber management system provides a maximum of 3600 ports per rack, making it crucial to the support of high-density data center applications, and critical to future-proofing the industry, contends the company.
As organizations increase the amount of data processing they do each day, some are starting to require hyperscale data centers. With the use of fiber optics and growing Ethernet standards, admins can make 100G data centers a reality. Leaf-spine topologies, Ethernet and optics research are driving the next generation of data center networking infrastructure. Stay ahead of the curve with these technologies.
A new study from Greenpeace and North China Electric Power University reports that in five years, China’s data centers alone will consume as much power as the total amount used in Australia in 2018. The industry’s electricity consumption is set to increase by 66% over that time. Buildings storing data produced 99 million metric tons of carbon last year in China, the study finds, which is equivalent to 21 million cars.
If you’re like most people in the data center market, you’re in the planning stages of converting to 100G links, or you’ve already started the installation process. Either way (and whether you like it or not), that means it’s time to start thinking about 400G.But what’s the best path forward to 100 and 400G? What cabling choices should you make today so you can cost effectively migrate in the future? Nexans can help you make those decision with our Own the Link Calculator web tool, recently updated for 400G.
Undoubtedly, the effectiveness of data centers depends on their uptime. A layer of better visual management can dramatically reduce the possibility of human errors. Human errors and malpractices are a no-no as these things can lead to money-wasting downtime though cables come with factory printed legends. However, these legends are tough to locate…. Let us talk about how color coding is better than other cable management technique?
The TIA-942 standard for data centers is the world’s most popular data center standard. It’s used by well over 70% of facilities around the world. Data center stakeholders have been very concerned about ensuring that their data center was designed, built, and approved as having met that criteria.The new TIA program ensures consistency and conformity across the audits of data centers, which will result in better performance.
The Infinium™ HD Enclosure is an ideal solution for fiber networks in data centers and building networks. The high-density footprint accommodates up to 96 fibers in 1U of rack space. This enclosure has many innovative features designed with the installer, contractor, and network professional in mind, providing a simplified process when installing or working within the enclosure.
