To increase processing capability in limited space, data centres are increasingly employing high density IT equipment. Increased densities within the enclosure/racks, however, can lead to "hot spots," potential harm to valuable IT equipment, and an increased power draw if the right blend of density, power and cooling is not employed.
NRB Telecom's Solutions to Promote Density/Space Efficiency
High-density/Space-efficient Cabling Components
Ultra High-density Copper Patch Panels feature unique connector technology to enable double the port density of a traditional patch panel - 48 ports in 1U rack space.
AngleFlexTM Patch Panels utilize angled inserts that eliminate the need for horizontal cable management devices - a 27% space savings per rack.
10GX® Pre-terminated Cabling Systems feature the only Category 6A RJ45 Coupler in the market and small, flexible cable assemblies that require considerably less space in the cable pathways. Components provide an optimal plug-and-play deployment capability and are 100% reusable for an especially long product life-cycle. Pre-terminated Cabling Systems offer the added benefit of an up to 90% reduction in labor cost with easy-installation components. The 3600 Pre-Terminated System is available for Category 6 applications.
10GX and GigaBIX IDC Systems are high performance, space-efficient, modular connection systems with the flexibility to accommodate large, wall- and rack-mounted cross connects and interconnect systems - saving up to 45% of the floor space.
FiberExpress® Ultra Patch Panels provide ultra high-density and trouble-free installation and maintenance. They can accommodate up to 96 fibers in a 1U space, or be wall-mounted to maximize floor space-savings.
FiberExpress Pre-terminated Cable Assemblies include high-density multi-fiber assemblies and MPO cables. Reliability is assured with factory termination and testing and the assemblies can be re-deployed for a longer lifecycle investment.
High-density/Space-efficient Cable Management Components
High-density Modular Racking System provides unmatched density, allowing for optimal use of precious data centre floor space (up to a 60% reduction in floor space requirements). Combining the High-density Racking System with NRB Telecom's Ultra High-density or AngleFlex Patch Panels, delivers a density of 864 Category 6A ports per rack, without compromising the ability for easy deployment and future moves, adds and changes. Other combinations of density and manageability are possible, including configurations up to 1152 ports in a single rack.
Drawing from our cable and connectivity expertise, NRB Telecom Rack and Enclosure Systems allow for hosting of servers and switches while maintaining best-in-class cable management features. NRB Telecom's in-house design and manufacturing allows for quick turnaround on custom designed Enclosures/Racks in various footprints that can be easily configured with a variety of doors, security access systems, side panels, mounting rails, top panels, fans, etc., including a complete line of accessories.
