As the world embarks on a potential fourth
Industrial Revolution, it is the 30 to 50 billion connected devices that will spur the unprecedented growth in
bandwidth. The next few years are critical to building the networks that will
meet the demand. In anticipation of this need, CommScope, a leader in communications
network infrastructure solutions, is introducing its High Speed Migration
platform that assists data center managers with building faster, more agile,
high-density migration plans.
“With our High Speed Migration
solutions, we’re able to help data center managers accelerate the growth of
their DC capacity and the speed of their digital transformation initiatives,”
said John Schmidt, vice
president of Global Data Center Solutions at CommScope. “We are quickly moving
from 10Gb/s and 40Gb/s to 100Gb/s, 400Gb/s and beyond. The more data consumers
and network users need, the more services they expect, the more critical speed
becomes. This is a global phenomenon and one of the top challenges that data
center managers will face.”
CommScope’s High Speed Migration portfolio works
for duplex and parallel applications and allows customers to decide on the best
approach to architecture. It also supports higher speeds and emerging
applications without having to rip and replace. More than that, the platform
allows CommScope to act as a trusted partner with our highly trained team of
network architects who understand a customer’s business needs and provides
insight to future data center ecosystems and technology trends. The following innovative
solutions are part of the first phase of the High Speed Migration platform and support
current and future high speed applications:
connectivity options: 24-fiber connections that ensure lowest first cost
duplex deployments with a single connection, 12-fiber to support the
seamless expansion of legacy 12-fiber infrastructures, and 8-fiber support
QSFP technologies, providing for customers utilizing this parallel optic
- Fiber optic panels: Ultra- and high- density panels that simplify
management of duplex and parallel ports for dynamic migration and
- Ultra-Low Loss (ULL) performance: Ultra-low loss
pre-terminated components enable longer link spans with more connectivity
options and guaranteed support for attenuation-sensitive applications.
- LazrSPEED® WideBand OM5: Part of the flagship CommScope SYSTIMAX® portfolio most recently
OM5 by the ISO/IEC. It 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.
- imVision®: The automated infrastructure management
system (AIM) that gives oversight and control to SYSTIMAX physical network
As part of CommScope’s entire High Speed Migration strategy,
solutions include all fiber types (multimode and single mode), intelligence and
customized connectors for all data centers.
Delivering connectivity resources at scale has become a
competitive differentiator, per Jennifer Cooke,
director in IDC’s Datacenter Trends and
Strategies group. Digital
transformation initiatives are built on making data-driven decisions, and the
ever-increasing need for speed will challenge network and data providers soon.
“Preparing to meet this challenge requires not only
investment, but a strategy and vision to transition when and where resources
are needed,” said Cooke.
“CommScope’s high-speed migration services meet a critical need in the market
by providing a bridge between current and future demand and supporting a
strategic vision for data center and network transformation.
