Podcast discusses data center cabling, trends

AMPNetconnect's Ken Hall talks about high-speed cabling in corporate data centers and the MRJ21 interface.

A downloadable podcast now available from Cabling Installation & Maintenance features an in-depth conversation with Ken Hall, Tyco Electronics AMPNetconnect's global data center program manager. The MRJ21 interface was Hall's brainchild. In this podcast he talks a little bit about the MRJ21 and some of the recent developments and refinements made to it. But he also discusses the macro drivers of high-speed data center cabling and connectivity.

Cabling Installation & Maintenance chief editor Patrick McLaughlin interviewed Hall for the podcast, at one point asking him why a corporation's CIO would or should care about the type of cabling deployed in its data center. Hall's frank response sheds light on some of the bottom-line benefits that a robust and reliable cabling system can bring to an organization.

This podcast is the first of what we expect to be several to be posted on the cablinginstall.com site.
