PANDUIT has introduced next-generation, high-speed data transport capabilities for the data center.
The high performance, fiber optic system to connect server, storage, and network systems is aimed at meeting ever-increasing bandwidth and application requirements.
Rick Pimpinella, fiber research manager at PANDUIT, said that as virtualization, consolidation, and convergence initiatives continue to grow more pervasive, so do the demands placed on the physical infrastructure.
He said PANDUIT was launching its OM4 Fiber Optic System to meet the needs for faster processing speeds and greater storage capabilities, as well as long-reach and cross-connect deployments.
"As a result of our continued research into multimode fiber performance and our active participation in standards committees, we can now offer the next progression in high performance optical connectivity," he said.
"PANDUIT is able to offer a fiber system that exceeds the bandwidth specification being proposed in the draft standard for OM4."
Pimpinella said the company’s OM4 Fiber Optic System offers high performance and seamless integration of 10 Gb/s Ethernet and 8Gb/s Fiber Channel network capabilities and beyond, to minimize physical infrastructure risk in the data center.
He said it integrates multi-fiber low loss MTP and single fiber connectivity solutions with premium grade high performance laser optimized multimode fiber (with a minimum EMB of 5000 MHz·km) to deliver consistent performance and reliability of critical systems.
The modular system includes pre-terminated cassettes, interconnect assemblies, equipment cords and harnesses.
