TE’s Quareo physical layer management is an end-to-end solution, combining hardware and software elements 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 Quareo physical layer management system leverages an innovative technology called connection point identification (CPID) to capture accurate information on the state of the network. This is done by incorporating chips on connectors throughout the network. Factory installed, these chips are programmed with all the pertinent information about a product, starting with the serial number. Once installed in the network, the product becomes fully discoverable, and the information can be accessed by a technician.
The Quareo physical layer management software captures data from the hardware and turns it into information that can be used to more effectively and efficiently manage the network. Field technicians and installers are armed with better, more accurate data, improving jobsite performance and reliability.
The QHDEP is a 1RU (1.75") 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 panel will hold up to 144 (LC) or 48 (MPO) fiber connections.
CONNECTION POINT IDENTIFICATION (CPID)
TE’s CPID technology provides a unique identifier for every Quareo enabled component in the network – enabling immediate recognition of a patch cord upon installing or removing. CPID gives network operators complete visibility to all connection events in the network and provides detailed information on the network elements being used.
