“The world’s insatiable demand for data is pushing IT teams to rethink and retool their network infrastructure,” said John Schmidt, vice president of Data Center Market Development at CommScope. “Meeting that demand means building for speed, simplicity and savings.”
By next year, there will be approximately 30 billion connected
devices -- from phones to gaming remotes.
That is five per person and a lot of demand placed on data centers around the
world. CommScope, a leader in
communications network infrastructure solutions, comes to BICSI showcasing its
agile, high-density and cloud-friendly solutions for fast and reliable data
“The world’s insatiable demand for data is pushing IT teams
to rethink and retool their network infrastructure,” said John Schmidt, vice president
of Data Center Market Development at CommScope. “Meeting that demand means
building for speed, simplicity and savings.”
In Booth #831 at BICSI, CommScope will demonstrate a host
of solutions that are scalable, easy to deploy and provide for an agile and
flexible migration path. These support all current and future high speed
applications from 10G to 400G and beyond:
- Fiber optic panels: Ultra-, high- and standard-density panels
that simplify management of duplex and parallel ports for dynamic
migration and flexibility.
- FiberGuide: The optical raceway system that protects and
routes fiber in central offices, data centers and mobile switching
- imVision: The automated infrastructure management system (AIM)
that gives oversight and control to the SYSTIMAX® physical network connectivity solutions.
- ION-E/UAP: CommScope’s industry leading universal wireless
infrastructure for in-building wireless solutions.
CommScope’s LazrSPEED® WideBand OM5 –
the newest innovation to the flagship SYSTIMAX portfolio of connectivity
solutions – will be in display in Graybar’s Booth #901. OM5, most recently designated
by the ISO/IEC, enhances the ability of short-wavelength division multiplexing
to provide at least four-fold increases in usable bandwidth while maintaining
backward compatibility with legacy multimode fiber.
CommScope experts will also share insight during the show on
high speed migration and preparing for bandwidth expansion:
- Sean Kelly, field application engineer, will
present on the fundamentals of passive optical LAN in the two-day
pre-conference seminar hosted by the Association for Passive Optical LAN
- Kam Patel, director of Global Data Center
Solutions, will talk about taking control of data center cabling at the conference session
on Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 9 a.m.
- Jim Young, global lead for Enterprise Data
Centers, will discuss preparing for the road to terabit Ethernet at a CommScope-hosted
luncheon Tuesday, Jan. 24, at noon in Room 24-25. The lunch is open to all
Young will showcase the “Ethernet Roadmap” created by the Ethernet Alliance, showing twists
and turns on the path to faster speeds. New technologies like more efficient
modulation, transmission schemes and fiber types illustrate just how fast
things are changing.
now at the dawn of the next Ethernet era – with a diverse array of
interoperable, multivendor solutions in place, the Ethernet ecosystem is ready
to begin the build-out of next generation, reliable,
high-speed networks based on those technologies,” said John D’Ambrosia,
chairman, Ethernet Alliance. “The Ethernet
Alliance is committed to Ethernet’s continued success, evolution and expansion
through interoperability and educational initiatives; however, we can’t do that
without the support of forward-thinking members like CommScope. We look forward
to hearing more about the many innovations on display at BICSI.”
CommScope is proud to be a corporate sponsor of BICSI and is a silver sponsor for the show.
Organizers expect almost 200 exhibitors and nearly 5,000 attendees, mostly made
up of designers, engineers, project managers and installers in voice and data,
wireless and outside plant. Click
