RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CommScope, Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, is continuing in its vision to help data center operators realize greater value within their physical infrastructure by introducing its Living Infrastructure(tm) philosophy.
CommScope’s Living Infrastructure is an approach to designing, deploying and evolving data centers that encompasses a comprehensive portfolio of structured cabling solutions and planning tools. These solutions and tools can help customers drive efficiency through flexibility in addressing unanticipated changes in network design and priorities.
Data centers are critical to the IT operations of most organizations, playing a key role in storing and accessing information used to run the business. Whether it is to operate an enterprise-owned or co-location data center, CommScope can provide the infrastructure vital to support a network’s current and future requirements.
Modifying or expanding a data center presents a unique opportunity to design a network that maximizes the best of today’s technology while providing a clear path to the future. The Living Infrastructure Design Guide for Data Centers is now available for download and can guide data center personnel through the selection of pre-configured reference designs based on industry best practices. Users can evaluate different network architectures and select appropriate cabling solutions quickly and with confidence.
CommScope’s Living Infrastructure approach is also bringing new solutions to market that organizations can quickly deploy in their data center today while allowing them to evolve with future growth and the introduction of new technologies. One such solution is the InstaPATCH® ZERO(tm) server cabinet solution.
Developed in collaboration with IT enclosure industry leader Rittal Corporation, InstaPATCH ZERO is the first pre-terminated server cabinet solution on the market. The InstaPATCH ZERO solution is first being introduced in North America and Latin America. This solution platform is built on a unique modular 600-mm wide server cabinet equipped with pre-terminated cabling cassettes that require “zero” space in the vertical racks, enabling full server deployment. Coupled with a 4U mini-rack mounted above the cabinet, InstaPATCH ZERO provides copper and fiber connectivity in an integrated, modular system that enables rapid “Roll-in” and “Plug-in” server cabinet deployment and facilitates best practices in intra-cabinet cable management. Together with InstaPATCH® Cu and InstaPATCH® 360, InstaPATCH ZERO provides an end-to-end pre-terminated structured cabling solution that not only reduces server cabinet deployment times, but enhances the ability to respond to change as data center evolves.
“The InstaPATCH ZERO solution is an outstanding example of how CommScope is executing on its vision of Living Infrastructure,” said George Brooks, senior vice president, Data Center business unit, CommScope. “The collaboration between CommScope and Rittal will allow data center customers to select a turn-key solution designed for rapid server deployment and change management. By helping our customers with rapid deployment, we help them realize a higher investment value by saving time, money, space while also enabling them to plan for tomorrow’s growth.”
InstaPATCH ZERO is ideal for those organizations that intend to adopt a pre-terminated and flexible structured cabling solution for rapid server deployment, have high density environments with limited real estate and regularly deploy and/or decommission servers.
