In addition to providing efficiency and manageability, the H+ will allow for a seamless transition as customers continue to migrate to higher speeds.
Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
CABLExpress® has announced the launch of its H+ fiber enclosure, the latest addition to the H-Series fiber optic enclosures in its Skinny-Trunk® Solution. The H+ Enclosure will help save valuable rack space in the data center by providing the highest port density for fiber optic cabling currently offered in the marketplace, therefore increasing efficiency and manageability.
According to leading IT research company, Gartner, Inc., efficiency of data center infrastructure and containment of costs are key challenges in the industry.
“Many IT organizations are asked to do more with less, reducing budgets and curtailing data center expansion projects,” the company stated in a research note*. “Faced with the harsh realities of a difficult economic climate, data center managers must focus on creating the most efficient operating environment, to extend the life of their data centers.”
The CABLExpress H+ Enclosure provides IT managers with a solution to these challenges by allowing for significant space-saving and optimal use of rack unit capacity, maximizing the potential of current data center infrastructure.
The CABLExpress H+ Enclosure features:
- 1U high-density configuration option for 72 duplex LC ports
- 2U high-density configuration option for 144 duplex LC ports
- 4U high-density configuration option for 288 duplex LC ports
- Individual sliding tray and slide out modules for easy access to front and rear ports
- Cable management trough and side tie-down areas that allow for uniform cable routing
“The development of the H+ Enclosure enables us to provide our customers with another high-density option for their data centers that supports the Telecommunications Industry Association’s TIA-942 structured cabling standard,” said Peter Belyea, president of CXtec®, the parent company of the CABLExpress division. “In addition to providing efficiency and manageability, the H+ will allow for a seamless transition as customers continue to migrate to higher speeds.”
