Service provider data center infrastructure

Let CommScope help your data center evolve in form and function

Service providers know the role of the central office (CO) continues to change and evolve to serve the demand for bandwidth-hungry video streaming. New virtualized applications and cloud services are more competitive when deployed close to your customers. To achieve this, new leaf-spine data center architectures transform the CO into highly scalable cloud-based service platforms.

CommScope has worked with service operators and data centers for decades, building innovative end-to-end solution ecosystems that empower our partners’ growth. The convergence of CO and data center positions us as the ideal partner for providers in this transformative time. Our Professional Services offers expert resources to help you qualify and add data center and fiber network capacity.

Challenges and opportunities

Embracing cutting-edge architecture

Service provider data centers are built to manage vast amounts of traffic, and to evolve with changing demand. Leaf-spine architecture holds the key to more efficient operation and more massive bandwidth.

Where CO meets DC

Central offices are being repurposed and reimagined. New data center infrastructure is pushing closer to the network edge, where it can more efficiently serve customers—and deliver better experiences.

Managing the data explosion

Customers are streaming, sharing and uploading like never before. This explosion of data use calls for better bandwidth—10G, 40G, 100G, and then…
