From the site of the Gartner Data Center Conference 2014 in Las Vegas (Dec. 2-5), CABLExpress this week announced the launch of its enhanced H+ fiber enclosures, designed to provide data center professionals with increased scalability in their Layer One infrastructures. The H+ enclosures feature among the highest port density in the industry, claims the company, enabling efficient usage of conditioned rack space.
IT research company Gartner emphasizes that the optimal efficiency of data center infrastructures is necessary to effectively manage the increased speed and capacity of data flow required in today's environments. "New dimensions in corporate and personal computing will demand more performance, more capacity and quick, seamless access to enormous databases in more cost-effective and efficient infrastructures that take up less space and consume less power," the company stated in a recent research note.*
CABLExpress says its new enhanced H+ fiber enclosures feature sliding trays, each housing four separate modules with six LC duplex ports. This functionality allows users to customize their infrastructures to meet organizational needs and provides scalability for future growth. The enclosures are available in 1U, 2U and 4U configurations for 72, 144, and 288 duplex LC ports respectively. The H+ enclosures are part of the CABLExpress Skinny-Trunk Solution, the company's flagship high-density fiber-optic cabling system.
"The H+ enclosures enable data center managers to take a modular and scalable approach to designing their cabling infrastructures based on the specific needs of their organizations," said Lisa Belodoff, vice president of CABLExpress. "The proper use of high-density data center solutions helps increase overall efficiency by maximizing space and resources."
