CommScope has introduced a pre-terminated copper connectivity platform designed to enable easy deployment of large-scale cabling infrastructures in data centers, as well as provide a future migration path to higher performance systems. Currently available in North America and Latin America, InstaPatch Quattro is a 10GBase-T and 1GBase-T cassette and trunk-based connectivity system that combines high-performance with "plug-and-play" simplicity for fast data center deployment and easy modification as a network's needs evolve.

“Pre-terminated connectivity has grown in recent years as a trusted means for designing and deploying data center infrastructures,” comments George Brooks, senior vice president, Enterprise Product Line Management, CommScope. “InstaPatch Quattro combines the performance and quality of our Systimax solutions along with the design freedom and installation ease associated with our InstaPatch fiber solutions. We believe this solution corresponds with our customer’s infrastructure and data center needs today and for the future.”

According to the company, the InstaPatch Quattro system is designed to install easily, adapt quickly and perform reliably even under demanding conditions. The system's products include panels, modular cassettes, trunk and breakout cables. The new platform is billed as an ideal solution for the deployment of pods and/or data center modules. With the addition of InstaPatch Quattro, CommScope now offers a full suite of high performance pre-terminated cabling solutions (copper, fiber and cabinet) that enable end-to-end fast deployment of connectivity, from core to aggregation to access layers.

Each InstaPatch Quattro component is factory tested and certified by Fluke Networks equipment to ensure consistency and quality. “Infrastructure succeeds when it is supported by accurate and reliable certification,” comments David Veneski, director, Datacom Installer Business Unit, Fluke Networks. “We appreciate the opportunity to apply our expertise in testing to a cabling solution designed for tomorrow’s data centers.”
