TE Connectivity Expands Quareo Physical Layer Management Product Family
Mar 23 15
TE Connectivity announced that it has expanded its Quareo family of physical layer management solutions with additional products featuring connection point identification technology. Quareo PLM solutions enable higher network availability while reducing network costs by integrating full visibility of the physical layer into existing network management applications. The new products expand options for central office and data center network architects who want to implement physical layer management to gain an accurate, real-time view of the physical network. TE's Quareo PLM system is an end-to-end solution, combining hardware and software elements and CPID technology to provide accurate visibility on the state of the physical network at all times. It enables easier, smarter network management for everyone from cable installers to network managers, strengthening physical security, boosting availability and providing real-time communication with network assets. The new NG4access optical distribution frame (ODF) featuring Quareo technology (QNG4), provides superior access to high-density fiber terminations up to 3,456 fibers per frame. With innovations in access trays, universal adapter packs, cabled modules and multi fiber push-on modules, installing and maintaining large amounts of fiber can be done faster, easier and less expensively than previous ODF solutions available on the market. The high-density equipment panel featuring Quareo technology (QHDEP), is a 1RU fiber optic panel with six technician-friendly access trays. Each tray features a mounting location for holding one LC or MPO adapter pack, or MPO module or cabled module. A single access tray can serve up to 24 LC fiber connections or 8 MPO fiber connections. At full capacity, the QHDEP will hold up to 144 (LC), 576 (12F MPO), or 1,152 (24F MPO) fiber connections. With many different adapter packs and modules this allows for quick modular deployment for 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet links which can be mixed in the same high-density equipment panel (QHDEP) chassis. These modules can be changed or upgraded without disturbing adjacent cables.
Applied Micro Circuits Corporation and TE Connectivity Collaborate to Develop High-Speed Cable Connectivity Solutions for Data Center Networks
Mar 23 15
Applied Micro Circuits Corporation and TE Connectivity announced their collaboration to develop high-speed cable connectivity solutions for data center networks. The collaboration will result in active copper cables for connecting servers to top-of-rack (TOR) switches at 50Gbps and 40Gbps speeds using AppliedMicro's DSP-based transceiver and TE Connectivity's high-speed copper cable assemblies. Rapid growth in data center and the increasing CPU density within a rack typically create challenges in managing cable connections to the TOR switches while still maintaining the airflow required for cooling. By enabling bandwidth over copper cables, data center operators will be able to reduce the number of cables connecting CPUs to TOR switches by up to 75% resulting in higher manageability, better cooling and
