Corning debuts bend-insensitive solution for data center

June 17, 2009
June 17, 2009--At BICSI Europe, June 22-24, Corning Inc. plans to unveil an optical fiber data center solution that it says addresses "the critical issues facing today's chief information officers (CIOs) and also will meet the demands of tomorrow's data centers." The data center solution is enabled by Corning's bend-insensitive ClearCurve optical fiber technology.

June 17, 2009--At BICSI Europe, June 22-24, Corning Inc. plans to unveil an optical fiber data center solution that it says addresses "the critical issues facing today's chief information officers (CIOs) and also will meet the demands of tomorrow's data centers." The data center solution is enabled by Corning's bend-insensitive ClearCurve optical fiber technology, designed to reduce overall installation time while also enabling increased server density, reduced power consumption, and increased reliability.

In January, Corning introduced ClearCurve multimode fiber, designed to bring a tenfold improvement in bend performance over past multimode fibers used in data centers, LANs, and industrial applications. The data center solution, says Corning, "will feature 100 percent greater density than existing solutions. It also enables a simplified data center layout that will allow data center operators to easily move, add or update the system configuration approximately 25 percent faster than traditional solutions."

Corning says its new optical fiber data center solution will also create additional cost savings with respect to equipment space, enabling "significantly more efficient rack space usage." Additionally, says the company, the bend performance of ClearCurve fiber and the reduced cable diameter allow trunk cables and jumpers to be quickly routed through tight spaces with no impact on system performance.

"Our solution allows for a reduced data center footprint, simplicity of installation with plug and play assembly components, and promotes improved airflow efficiency with reduced energy consumption and cost," says Clark Kinlin, president and CEO.
