Mumbai: CommScope introduced its high-speed fibre platform Propel to help data centre managers respond to the exponentially growing demand for computing power.
CommScope adds Propel for high-speed migration
This new technology platform Propel, according to CommScope facilitates the migration to Terabit speeds. It provides reliable connectivity and robust network infrastructure that aligns with rapidly emerging data centre applications, enabling faster, more efficient access to data.
Data centre demands have soared as workers, students, nurses, businesses, local communities and government agencies have moved to cloud computing, streaming services and AI applications. The industry continues to respond to an increase in economic life online by building new data centres and investing in ways to dramatically increase data centre capacity.
“Over the past few years, we have witnessed extraordinary technical advances and a rise in computing devices that connect to the real world. Data centers are key assets in the data-driven economy and it’s critical that the industry pay attention to energy usage and space requirements as we move toward terabit speeds,” said John Schmidt, SVP – of CommScope’s Building and Data Center Business.
“CommScope’s Propel solution was engineered to ensure data center operators can maximize existing infrastructure investments while preparing for future applications in a smarter and more efficient manner,” added Schmidt.
Supporting 400 Gbps and 800 Gbps speeds
Propel facilitates the modernization of the network. Propel introduces 16-fibre cabling to support the fast-growing 400 Gbps and 800 Gbps speeds, as well as emerging 1.6 Tbps speeds. This enables leading-edge network architectures to deliver greater capacity to end devices with increased efficiency, saving time and energy while also greatly reducing the cost per gigabit.
Propel modules are available in four different interchangeable sizes with matching cable constructions to easily scale applications with system architectures. All components are an ultra-low loss for optimal performance and have a specific QR code for performance tracking and online instructions.
Backed by CommScope’s industry-leading SYSTIMAX Application Assurance Warranty, Propel encompasses the industry’s first Multifiber Push-On (MPO) 16-fibre platform.
And it includes panels in 1U, 2U and 4U, adapter packs of LC, SN and MPO as well its modules come in single and multi-mode of 8,12, 16 and 24 fibres. And offers cable Assemblies: MPO8, 12, 16 and 24; SN and LC Uniboot.
