TE Launches New Data Center Fiber Connectivity Solution That Can Future-Proof for Three Generations

September 17, 2012

Data Center Bandwidth Demands and Higher Data Rates Addressed with 24-Fiber Trunking Solution

GREENSBORO, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 17, 2012-- TE Connectivity (TE) today announced a new 24-fiber trunking and interconnect solution that will make transitioning from current 1000Base-T applications to 40 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 100 GbE easy to accomplish and cost-effective. The 24-fiber trunking and interconnect solution offers data center managers a consistent fiber infrastructure over the next three generations of active equipment, easy migration to higher speeds, cost-benefits associated with a longer shelf life of the fiber cable, and higher utilization of the fiber investment.

Data centers are at the heart of the tremendous amount of business data needing to be transmitted, processed and stored. In the data center, fiber optic links are vital for providing the bandwidth and speed needed to transmit huge amounts of data to and from a large number of sources. More bandwidth is also needed to support the use of virtualization that consolidates multiple physical servers into a single instance to reduce the amount of equipment and improve space utilization. Business data traffic will grow 22% between 2011 and 20161 – with business video conferencing alone increasing six-fold.

“Our solution is a common sense approach for today’s data center. Network managers looking to deliver on the promise of high performance to their users and move to higher bandwidth and service levels to accommodate future applications and devices need to consider the superior economics and simplicity of our 24-fiber trunking and interconnect solution,” said Hutch Coburn, senior product manager of fiber solutions at TE Enterprise Networks.

“Imagine installing your fiber trunking once and not having to replace it for the next two or three generations of active equipment upgrades,” said  Kam Patel , business line manager of data center solutions at TE Enterprise Networks. “This solution provides a tremendous advantage for data center managers – specifically those in the healthcare, finance, government or broadcasting industries. The last thing anyone wants to face is not being able to support new and upcoming applications for their users or businesses due to bandwidth limitations. TE’s plug-and-play solution offers lower future capital and operating expense, defines a clear migration path that can begin today and ensures optimal asset utilization – minimizing dark fibers.”

TE’s 24-fiber trunking and interconnect solution allows enterprise data center managers to follow a common sense methodology that offers:

  • Guaranteed support for 10, 40, 100 GbE
  • Maximum utilization of deployed fibers
  • Better airflow and energy efficiency
  • Increased density in fiber panels
  • Significant increase in return on investment (ROI)
