RICHARDSON, Texas -- Connectivity Technologies Inc. (CTI), a business unit of Methode Electronics' (NYSE: MEI) Data Solutions Group, announced the release of its Quantum Cabling Solution for high density cable management infrastructure applications.

"The Quantum Cabling Solution is our response to the ever increasing port density in enterprise class data center hardware applications," said a company representative. "While the increased density makes the best use of available space, it creates a nightmare for those trying to maintain the cabling. The Quantum Cabling Solution is capable of handling the highest port count hardware on the market, while utilizing the least amount of valuable rack space. It's simple to install and easy to manage compared to other available options."

Designed for efficiency, Methode claims the cabling platform allows the user to cable a fully loaded enterprise class director "in half the time of traditional cabling methods." In trials, the company claims the platform reduced single card installation time from one hour down to fifteen minutes. The system is compliant with the TIA-942 telecommunications infrastructure standard for data centers.

When deployed with a TIA-942 infrastructure platform, Methode says the Quantum platform provides a highly manageable cabling solution that improves troubleshooting and MAC (move-add-change) activities when compared to traditional cabling methods.
