RICHARDSON, Texas -- CommScope has provided critical technology for Brocade’s new data center and corporate campus in San Jose, California, including structured fiber and copper cabling as well as in-building wireless systems to provide a backbone for bandwidth-intensive network communications.
CommScope wired and wireless products deployed include:
Copper patch panels and high-performance GigaSPEED X10D copper cabling from CommScope’s SYSTIMAX 360 line of infrastructure solutions were deployed campus-wide as well as in the data center to ensure seamless network reliability.
Incorporation of the SYSTIMAX LazrSPEED 550 fiber solution into the data center ensures compliance with Telecommunications Industry Association’s (TIA) OM4 standard for high-speed computing. CommScope also installed fiber shelf enclosures, vertical and horizontal managers.
Additionally, CommScope’s In-Building Wireless Solution -- including the ION-B active distributed antenna system (DAS), HELIAX coaxial cable, and Cell-Max indoor antennas -- is being used to provide wireless coverage to all the buildings on the new Brocade campus. This system includes the necessary infrastructure for current cellular wireless services, future higher data rate wireless needs, and critical health and public safety wireless communication.
Brocade consolidated three San Jose-area data centers into its new 5,000 square-foot facility, decreasing the physical footprint requirement by 30 percent and decreasing its data center energy consumption by 37 percent. With standardized management of cooling, power management and space management, the data center is designed to significantly reduce operating expenses and deliver long-term cost savings.
