April 10, 2008 -- CommScope's Enterprise Solutions division has released its SYSTIMAX InstaPATCH Cu cabling system. Designed for networks utilizing Category 6 and 6A cabling, the system includes pre-measured cable, pre-terminated connecting hardware, pre-placed source-destination labels, prepared port configuration, and pre-bundled cables. The company says the system is aimed at supporting quality installations at a rapid speed for data center environments in the North America (NAR) and Caribbean and Latin American (CALA) regions.
"At CommScope we understand that network infrastructures are unique, so our representatives work closely with IT managers to understand their data center and network needs," explains Mark Peterson, senior vice president, global marketing, of CommScope's Enterprise division. "Once an evaluation is complete, together with our business partners, we prepare the pre-terminated solution and test every harness and port to ensure that each component meets our highest standards. From there, our business partners are able to perform fast installations."
The system is applicable in horizontal, backbone, switch applications throughout the data center. Source-destination labeling, pre-termination and plug-to-plug capability dramatically reduce the amount of time needed to implement a fully system, contends the company. The flexible harness system allows customers to select assemblies from 1 to 24 ports on each end; a special device called a SwitchPack combines multiple plug ends (4, 6, 8, 12 or 16) into a single unit, which can easily be plugged into a high density switch or server at one time optimizing connection speed.
"We want to offer customers a simple, high-security installation," continues Peterson. "Companies can rest assured that they're receiving cutting-edge technology before the installation team even arrives. And when the installation team does arrive, it won't be long before the high-performance network is fully functional and ready to go."
The SYSTIMAX InstaPATCH Cu Solution is supported by CommScope's 20-year warranty; additionally, the company says it will provide customers with factory test reports for each harness assembly, verifying the built-in performance levels of the system.
