CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As part of a significant investment to upgrade its data center infrastructure, TransUnion recently chose CommScope to outfit the new Northlake, Ill. facility with its high-performance line of SYSTIMAX® end-to-end connectivity solutions to provide optimal connectivity within the data center.
“This new data center further strengthens our network and IT infrastructure with the best technology available. CommScope’s high-speed connectivity solutions are highly reliable and we had a great experience working with them on this project,” said Josh Neyer, global head of data centers at TransUnion. “We have a significant responsibility to provide our customers with a secure, efficient and dependable service when managing their information. CommScope’s expertise in data center solutions has proven valuable in helping us carry out that responsibility.”
The new data center includes CommScope’s SYSTIMAX InstaPATCH® 360 pre-terminated fiber connectivity solutions based on LazrSPEED® multimode fiber. This pre-terminated solution will allow them to support 10G links today and easily migrate to 40G and 100G in the future. Allowing for a simplified, well-planned migration will give the data center the longevity it needs for future deployments of when TransUnion is ready to deploy next generation technology.
“Consumer credit affects us all and the technology carrying our credit information has to be fast, reliable and agile enough to support new technologies down the road,” said Kevin St. Cyr, senior vice president of Enterprise Solutions, CommScope. “TransUnion continues to invest in their IT infrastructure, and we are glad they chose our connectivity products to see that through. I think that it’s reassuring to know that TransUnion’s network, and my credit information, runs on CommScope.”
