Anixter’s recently produced Data Center Network Migration video details the complexities in data center cabling topology and design, and asks the question, "Is your physical cabling infrastructure designed to withstand constant change?"

Anixter asserts that the four best practices needed to achieve a high-performance, future-ready structured cabling solution for a data center include: creating network flexibility; using a future-ready cabling topology; making the right media selection; and anticipating and planning for density demands.

The distributor adds, "As server and network hardware topologies continually evolve due to increasing bandwidth requirements, your fiber and copper cabling topology and architecture will need to become more versatile in order to compensate for multiple migration options throughout its lifecycle."
