Oct 7th, 2013

The Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies alliance has announced improved support to meet its data center customers' demands for product customization and faster turnaround times. The alliance now offers expanded customization options for pre-terminated fiber and copper assemblies, and the capabilities of two U.S. facilities dedicated to manufacturing pre-terminated solutions.

All Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies pre-terminated cable assemblies can now be custom-configured at Leviton.com/configurator and ordered through Leviton. The assemblies include options for pre-terminated fiber trunks to be configured with Berk-Tek Micro Data Center Plenum (MDP) cable and extended reach GIGAliteTM-10XB OM4+ optical fiber.

“Berk-Tek MDP cable, when combined with MTP connectors, provides the highest-density, flexible backbone connectivity available for data centers and SAN installations,” contends Mike Connaughton, RCDD, Data Center Market Segment Manager at Berk-Tek. “The patented MDP cable has the smallest outside diameter in the industry, reducing pathway fill and improving air flow in the data center.”

“Using Leviton online configurators, customers can quickly and easily customize a variety of data center solutions to meet their specific network needs,” adds Gary Bernstein, Senior Director, Fiber & Data Center Product Management for Leviton. “The configurators also provide users with product graphics and specification sheets linked directly to their configured solution.”

With East Coast and Midwest facilities dedicated to manufacturing customer specific pre-terminated assemblies, Berk-Tek Leviton Technologies says it is able to build and ship products to customers with some of the fastest turnaround times in the industry. All products manufactured in Leviton’s Illinois facility and Berk-Tek’s North Carolina facility deliver guaranteed quality and performance, the companies assert.
