Minimising Cable Lengths and Rackspace Requirements

Exact specification of lengths ensure complete connectivity is achieved with minimal fibre management and in-rack cabling. Minimise rackspace by utilising MTP 12 or 24 fibre connectors. Maximise airflow by minimising the cabling and using micro-cable (approx 65% smaller than other cables)

Brocade High Density Ethernet Fabric, Fibre Channel and SAN Director MTP Fibre Switch Kits

Port density and port counts have increased in Brocade products, such as the Brocade DCX Backbone, and now require up to 768 ports or over 1,500 fibres to be connected within a single 19” rack or cabinet.
An MTP based cabling solution with optimal cable harnesses that transition a single 12 fibre MTP Connector to six LC duplex connectors and use a microcore reduced bend sensitive cable reduce volume in the cabinet by up to 70% and ensure minimal racksapce is required.
Complete Connect offer kits to connect all of Brocade’s Ethernet, Ethernet Fabric, Fibre Channel and SAN Director switches for 10/40/100 GbE.
All the kits are modular and so enable a “grow-on-demand” approach to upgrading your fibre network, thereby matching costs directly to requirements.

Reducing the cable congestion and enables the physical layer to be implemented in a manner that provides manageability, flexibility, and scalability in the data centre. The business case for deploying cabling solutions in the data centre has three primary considerations:

Scalability

TIA-942-compliant cabling and high-density MTP-based cabling solutions enable Fibre Channel SANs with 1000s of fibre optic ports

Manageability

Deploying fibre cabling and modular high-density cabling solutions improve troubleshooting and reconfiguration of ports during Moves, Adds, and Changes (MACs)

Distance

Link distances are constantly increasing and will require the use of fibre channels with reduced losses Complete Connect Cabling Kits are designed to comply with TIA 942—Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centres where the MDA becomes the hub of a star network and ensure easy configurability and troubleshooting, consolidation of equipment types and localization
