Strength and Stability in an Open Architecture Solution

by Julie Clark on November 19, 2013

Have you considered making the upgrades to your network infrastructure compatible for open architecture solutions? If you aren't quite sure about open architecture, you can learn a little more by checking out this previous blog post: What is Open Architecture?

Open architecture solutions allow the user to choose parts, such as patch cords, jacks, and cables, from any vendor or manufacturer to make one combined solution. This flexibility allows the user more opportunities to design the solution to specifically fit the needs and goals of the project.

Another benefit of open architecture solutions is flexibility: open architecture solutions allow the system to adapt to change in the long run. Because the solution was designed to work with parts from any manufacturer, future integration of new technologies is easier than with closed solutions. For example, if your system is a closed solution, the parts you used may or may not be compatible with newer technologies that could benefit your system. On the other hand, if you start off with an open architecture solution, future releases of new products or technologies that may be useful to your system will be easy to incorporate into the design.

Many enterprises opt for an open architecture infrastructure as a way to drive down costs and make moves, adds and changes to equipment and cabling effortless. But as newer technologies emerge, IT leaders must ensure their open architecture also promotes optimum performance and adaptability.
