As data centers grow to accommodate more mission-critical data and functions, an influx of moves, adds and changes is exhausting available real estate. Cable congestion for equipment and racks, as well as the cable trays and pathways used for all the cable connections between copper devices creates havoc that hinders performance.
Cable tray congestion compromises troubleshooting and expansion. Transition Networks offers flexible, easy-to-manage solutions to maximize the capabilities of existing cable infrastructure while improving performance and reliability. Structured cable distribution with centralized patching enables reconfigurations in an identifiable distribution area for superior scalability into the future.
Most data centers are moving toward 10 Gigabit communications. But, Category 6A copper cable has shielding problems and requires significant real estate. Transition Networks media converters allow organizations to adopt new migration technology without restructuring pathways and trays or incurring the significant expense of deploying an all-fiber network.
1000BASE-T to 1000BASE-SX
The Gigabit Ethernet media conversion modules offer the highest density media converter solution on the market today and are the result of a co-development effort between Transition Networks and Corning Cabling Systems. Each electrical-to-optical (EO) module includes (12) 1000Base-T RJ-45 ports on the front and (2) 12-fiber MTP 1000Base-SX optical ports on the rear to extend transmission reach (up to 750 m on 50/125 um fiber) while drastically reducing bulky copper cabling. The modules compatibility with the Plug & Play™ Universal System, part of Corning's LANscape® Pretium™ Solution, offer virtually seamless integration into embedded fiber infrastructure.
